The threads were cleaned with a wire brush, and then a small amount of thread sealant was applied to the threads of the bolt before it was installed. I was gonna customize it but didn't have the heart to do so. I spend most of my formative years in one of these standard cab 64s, bigger Slant Six and 3-on-the-tree. They were everywhere back in the sixties, and lasted forever. The windshield would rise up like a tailgate on a wagon, permitting the lower front section short of the headlights to swing open. A round brass washer and a special nut are affixed to the stud at each end of the manifold assembly.
This rig was essentially a 1974 Chrysler Custom Newport — all that was still Dodge was the body and the back two-thirds of the frame.

My dad built a steel-framed, canvas-covered shell for for the pickup for cargo protection very nearly as big as the camper shown in the image above.
Bottom Left: The surface of the head was cleaned with carburetor cleaner, and the small amount of coolant that leaked from the center upper hole in the head where the manifold bolt was located was wiped up. Satisfied with the responsiveness and smoothness of the Carter on our test drive, we took the time to strap the Dart to the Mustang dyno for additional evaluation runs. Make a big bore, you can use big valves, which means the air flow into the engine is low at low engine speeds, and gets better as the engine revs up. The other end of the kick-down linkage was connected to the transmission shift lever, and following the factory shop manual, the linkage was properly adjusted. The torque was up to 180 lb-ft, which was within 5 lb-ft of the highest ratings of the 1960s. I would assume that a lot of the detuning of the truck engines was less about reducing power and more about changing the cam profile and possibly carburetion and valves, depending on the engine to emphasize low-end grunt.
During the dyno runs, the engine was responsive, but it lacked a substantial punch when the throttle pedal was matted. The 225 Slant 6 replaced the flathead engine Chrysler offered in the 1959 models, and it ended with the introduction of the 3. The Ram lost its desire to butt heads, so it tried to outflank the competition with some creative ideas. Bottom Left: To remove the manifold assembly, twelve nuts and one bolt had to be unthreaded from the cylinder head. The average torque over the entire run was up 5 lb-ft to 149 lb-ft. The extra area of the piston would balance the lesser leverage of the shorter stroke. I was gonna customize it but didn't have the heart to do so.
With all the nuts removed, the entire intake, exhaust, and carburetor assembly was lifted up over the driver side fender and out of the engine bay. The Custom Sport Truck was a rare glimpse into the future. Description: 1967 Dodge Other Pickups Pickup You are bidding on a 1967 dodge d100 pickup. Yes, things have changed in the pickup world.

There's a huge amount of potential from mild to wild, but until you decide its next chapter, this turn-key classic pickup will provide you with plenty of smiles. The odd swept-back lean of the forward grille panel, not matched by the hood or supported by the grill position. I remember being amazed by the two-lever case, because my grandfather had a 1972 Chevy 4×4, it being the first 4-by I had ever ridden in, and it only had one lever. Mopar Connection Magazine is the best and only source you need to be a Mopar industry insider! Between 3600 to 3800 rpm, the torque increase was 10 lb-ft over the baseline, and the horsepower eclipsed 100 hp from 3600 rpm to 4200 rpm. It has drum brake front end. Even with the quarter-flap open, you can carry on a conversation. These, and the A-100s were the only Dodge trucks Exner got to design from a clean sheet of paper, and they both lasted through the bulk of the Engel era.
The fuel line was disconnected from the carburetor, and the two fasteners holding the Accurate Exhaust header pipe to the exhaust manifold were removed. Sure, that engine bay could easily swallow any Mopar muscle V8 you want to drop in, but we're always excited to see a vehicle that carries this kind of history.

Very fun to drive and very reliable! The average torque over the entire run was 149 lb-ft. As the emissions requirements on the internal combustion engine increased in the late 1960s and 1970s, the 225 was fitted with ever increasing power sapping emissions components, which hampered engine performance and drivability. My dad extended the financing. We never got that sort in Australia. The Dart was released in 1960 as a replacement to the Plymouth in the standard, low priced car segment which was growing rapidly at this time. The D series were made both for the civilian market and for the Israeli army.
