What a fiasco! Got an email from the place I ordered the doghouse gasket from saying the part is discontinued from Chrysler and not available. I called my local dealer in hopes they had one sitting on the shelf...no dice. They even checked dealer inventories across the country....nothing.


I went to Arizona Parts and searched their database and found that they had one in stock. I called and the jackass proceeded to tell me he was going to keep it for himself. He told me he would give me the superceded part number (which I already had), then changed his mind and said no. I told him he ought to take the gasket off his database then. Jerkoff. He thought he was going to pull a fast on me by not giving me the new number, BUT he had the old part number listed on his website. I searched that number, and low and behold, some place down in Florida had it. I called and talked to a really nice feller who is sending me the gasket!!! Geezy peezy.

I love finding treasure! Well, not really actual treasure, but parts I didn't know I had.

I found a set of brackets sitting on a shelf in my basement that I had bought to mount a front sway bar. I put a rear bar on a few years ago so I'm looking forward to seeing how well this van will handle after I add the front.

I found that PST has the best price so far for the ADDCO 1-1/4" front sway bar kit.


I found some other goodie sitting on that shelf too, like a set of full-size Street Van stickers that I had gotten from Johnny O. Yes..they will be going on this van. An '85 Street Van? No way! Way! lol

Got my new doghouse gasket in. This thing has a date on the label of 5/31/78, but the rubber is still soft and pliable.
