Time to join

Hi everyone :supz:
I've been a long time lurker and finally decided to join in on the fun. A first class site with first class people.

Anyhow, I'm Graham from Ottawa, Ontario. I've got a 1971 Dodge Demon 340/4-speed. I bought it in July 2000. I'm the 18th owner of this bucket o' bolts and it looks like alot of them have had their way with it. It was built many years ago following the old Direct Connection recipe for an 11 second thrill ride - right down to the 5:38 rear gears.

Unfortunately a few years ago (ok. 5 years), I had some problems with the clutch fork and release bearing and after several failed attempts to fix it, I lost interest in the car and the hobby in general. I just let the car sit (albeit in a heated garage) and couldn't care less.

Well this spring I decided to either fix it or dump it. I ordered all new clutch linkage parts from PG Classic in Canada and reinstalled the original clutch fork. So the car is now driveable except for a crunching sound coming from the rear when going around a corner. Also the shift linkage needs some adjusting. So I get my dad to tow the car to a trans shop and with the wet rainy summer we've been having, I tell the guy there's no hurry, do it whenever you get time. It's been over 2 months now and they still haven't touched it. Oh well... I've waited this long, right?

Mopar to ya :burnout:
