    I looked at the Summit listing for that part. It appears to be an adapter to go from metric bubble flare to inverted flare. Is that what you want to do? Late year 605 boxes have that scheme, while...

    I'm not 100% sure on a 605, but most inverted flare ports have a brass cone seat that can be replaced. Use a bolt extractor to remove it. Once you get it out, your next challenge is to find a...

    Yes. The hardtop body has an extra body mount though (one each side). You can buy the brace for it as a repro, or you can transplant them from your hardtop frame. Location is in the 55 assembly...

    The Nomad tailgate has more slope than a standard wagon tailgate - which makes it longer than the standard tailgate. So the bars may be too long.

    4-6" off has nothing to do with the cylinder heads. Thing is it can be fixed. The other thing is you'll never be able to buy a "bolt on" system that will bolt on, because this stuff (headers and...

    Assume this is a sedan. The moldings for the doors don't have the "snap" the rest of them have. All have fasteners and don't rely 100% on the "snap" to hold them in place.

    I think you hit on it here. Plumbing from a sump is the logical solution if you think a 3/8" line from a stock style setup is not sufficient.

    But here's the real rub. If...
