Where are matching numbers found on 1967 Plymouth barracuda?

transmission, engine block, then verify by the vin. there is also a sequence number across the radiator support that is the model number. (I'm dealing with the same issue.)

Gfish: Barracuda's don't have VIN # on the radiator support, but my have them on the drivers side dash, drivers side fender tag, and some may have them printed on the cowl sheet metal. Vin numbers are not on engines, or transmissions, these are date coded, build dates the same as that on the VIN are acceptable, but may vary as much as a month, or more.

Which direction do you set a distributor drive gear in a mopar 440?

In a mopar 440 the distributor drive gear notch is set inline with the crankshaft, but it's just a reccomended starting point as long as you have enough space to turn the distributor in either direction to adjust timing when installed.

Is it true that only 300 1965 Plymouth Valiants were manufactured with a V8 instead of a slant 6 engine?

well my info only went to 1966 but for that year they built 7,633 valiants with the 273 motor in 2 and 4 bbl versions . that would be quite a jump in production for one year not to mention the barracuda shared the same platform as the valiant and they had the 273 in it since 1964.

How do you remove the bottom inch of an oil dipstick tube that broke off inside the engine block of a 1972 Plymouth Barracuda?

forget about it --if it broke off in the dipstick tube it has fallen into the oil pan - there is no way it will get past the oil filter screen in the pan (daddmac) GFish: Tack weld a nut onto the end of the dipstick tube, Than turn the tube with a ratchet, until it either comes out, or collapses, you may choose to used either PB lubricant during this procedure, or take a can of compressed air ( computer keyboard cleaner ) and carefully spray the stuck part while holding the can upside down.( This deep freezes the part to well below sub zero temperature.)

What can cause a rover 114 to over heat?

the most common cause of over heating is a faulty thermostat! also check that the head gasket isn't on its way out as this will lead to massive engine failiure and overheating! my first points to check would be the thermostat isn't sticking and also check for air locks in the water system finally check the radiator isn't blocked or damaged! hope this helps.

specifically for this engine;

the k-series is prone to cooling system clogging, slow build-up of dirt/oil in the coolant can clog it's very small water ways, which can lead to air locks/poor circulation, which then leads to overheating, head gasket failure and head warping, you need, but this may be to late, to keep the cooling system very clean, do required maintenance of cooling system, ie regular flushing and refilling with good coolant, after about a decade of not being cleaned they can be relied upon to clog.

Can the timing gear that you see when you remove the distributor on a 1969 350 Chevy engine be pulled out while removing the distributor and change the position of the gear that drives the distributor?

There is a gear on the distributor shaft and a gear on the end of the camshaft that it engages with. The gear on the camshaft cannot be removed as it is part of the camshaft. The gear on the distributor shaft can be removed if it is worn; however, this is rare. These two gears must be in proper mesh for the engine to run; one cog off and it will not start.If you need further assistance google ' finding top dead center on a 350 chevy'.

Poisons and Toxins

Are barracuda poisonous?

The flesh of some coral reef fish that the great barracuda eats is poisonous and so the barracuda's flesh becomes poisonous too. This may explain why barracudas in some areas are poisonous, while those from elsewhere are perfectly safe to eat.
