1  Tech Talk / Restoration Corner & Member's Projects / Spirit bucket seats for a Gremlin?
 on: Yesterday at 23:50:03 
Started by blumontag | Post by blumontag
Does anyone one know if bucket seats from an 83 Spirit will fit and bolt directly into a 72 Gremlin? I found a nice junkyard pair but would need to get them shipped,  and I'd just like to know before I would buy them. Thanks so much!

I need it for my 70 AMX. I can't find anyone reproducing the beveled mirror glass for the day night feature. I just need the glass but will buy the housing if you are not comfortable with removing the glass. I'm not sure what other years mirror glass might fit? may 71-74 Javelins?

3  Tech Talk / Transmission & Drivetrain Repair/Modifications / Z bar bushings

Replacing my z bar bushings with reproductions from Amark. Waiting on delivery-
Noticed that the original outer bushing in the bracket looks different then the new one.
I rummaged through my old clutch parts and found the remnants of the original. Looks like what is pictured in the 70 TSM.
Has a blind hole rather than the open one found on the reproduction. Wondering if the original helped with the walking issue. My reproduction bushing wore out and allowed the bar to pop out. Any suggestions on fortifying the set-up would be appreciated.

Now I am about as FAR from a Dan fan as possible but I agree, I don't think he knew. He was just trying to get a deal and make a buck (he's a used car salesman). That being said when someone says its their car and have the title he should have made it right. It would have saved a lot of hassle and might have earned him an ounce of respect. Instead he still has no respect from me...I've heard too many people get ripped off by him.

 
 
Very well said Tony, and i agree 100%

8  Tech Talk / Engine Repair/Modifications / Need Advice on 258 Build-up
 on: Yesterday at 02:30:59 
Started by JavelinDan | Post by JavelinDan
Greetings all - long time lurker, but this is only my second or third post here. I was hoping to hook up with someone with some experience in building up a 258 6-cyl. Here's the scope of my project:
 
Car - '69 Javelin (currently with warmed over 232, 3-spd stick, stock rear - 2.78:1?)
 
Motor - 258 from '73 Comanche: .040 over, stock deck, stock crank & rods, Sealed Power hyperteutectic pistons from Chevy 305, Comp Cams Extreme Energy cam (.495-.512 lift, 218-226 dur. at .050 lift), '86 (?) 4-liter head (has 1/2" bolt holes), Clifford 4 Bbl. intake, Pacesetter dual exhaust headers, Edelbrock 500 cfm AVS "Thunder" carb.
 
Trans - GM 2004R (with Novak adapter)
 
Rearend - '68 AMX AMC-20, 350(something):1 ratio
 
I already have in my possession almost all of these parts, save for the carb, intake, and a distributor. The machine work has been done and am just getting ready to assemble the motor. I am hoping for somewhere north of 265 Hp. Just wondering if anyone has experience with this type of build-up, maybe with a Jeep? What kind of power did you make? Any advice? It's lonely out here in sixland. The only extensive writing on this I've seen is "Mojo's Javelin Page" but that was a while ago and he no longer answers the e-mail address he left on that page. Before the cubic inch fan-boys start gnawing on my leg, yes - I know a V-8 will make more power, and big V-8's make even more. But I have an inline sixness. Can I get an Amen?
