In Topic: Best coil-over option for '76 620

Wallrocket just posted this setup recently. His build is in the projects section.

Inter cooler was pretty simple. I just had this Honda FMIC laying around in the shop. It had 3 12mm bolt size holes on top to bolt it to something, I just drilled the holes out on the Datsun radiator support and called it good. Its very sturdy, and i am happy with it. To help others with this inter cooler, i think its for a Honda, has 3 bolts top and 3 bolts on bottom, inlet is 2.25 and outlet is 2.25. I will get the length and what not later for you guys.

Is there anything wrong with having a machine shop weld up a cracked manifold?


No, but as Mike stated it takes some skill that might be expensive. I preheated mine with an oxy-propane torch, kept the torch in the manifold heating the area while my buddy welded, then continued heating the welded area as i slowly turned the torch down. I took about 15 minutes to go from full heat to turning off the torch. That was my 4th try to weld it including preheat and post heat but it cracked each time.

Mike had also posted the genius diy option of drilling a hole, threading it, then putting in a bolt. Cut off flush then do it again slightly overlapping the first bolt. Basically threaded stitches to close the crack.

Can't edit to fix that second photo...not sure what's up. But if you have seen the general lee hot wheels it's that one... The headlights are hidden unlike the 500 where they are showing.

Does anybody have a 1969 dodge charger or charger 500 they would be willing to let go of? Like these but any color.

No Daytona please. I don't care about paint scheme, out of package is just fine.

Also looking for a 1949 Ford COE truck, same story.

Used and tired is fine.

I'm planning to try building a series of Roadkill cars.

I've sourced cars/parts to build the mazdarati, blasphemi, general maintenance, rotsun, and the crusher impala. Looking for these two to build general mayhem and stubby bob.
