I need a new air vent grill for my dash. Mine got broken from some crazy wheelies I did last fall. It fell out and I accidentally stepped on it. Getting ready for Autorama. Thanks. [Linked Image]

Moved it forward 20 feet to put some stuff in the shed and then moved it back 20 feet. Would love to drive it, but need $ to renew the registration.

In the last 3 weeks, I have lost what little heat I had (found a completely burnt cell in the blower motor). Had the throttle linkage snap on the way home from ordering the part for that one. Converted my mechanical linkage to cable from a '95 and had the brackets bend so I sill only haad 25% throttle at best.
Lost my headlights that night, but found a jury rigged way to get more throttle.
So far, I have replaced the gas pedal, cable, brackets, blower motor, resistor, headlight switch, and dimmer switch, and have just today recieved my heater switch/cable and dash vents.
I now have headlights again, and can throttle up around town, but still blow fuses every three minutes for the heat. I'm thinking it's in my fuse block, but no time or light after work to test/try..
Let's see what tomorrow brings....


How do you know it won't work? Have you tried it, yet??

after a trip to Hendersonville NC, i found oil blown all over the engine compartment and the dipstick blown out about 3/4 inch. guess that is what you call blow by on an engine with 1000 miles on it. out the door shortly to get another engine. good thing i love my dodge. she probably hates me for having a half wit work on her. "soon my baby soon" we will be chasing the sun.lol

Check to see if the PCV valve is plugged first
