Pick up this pump. For a Chrysler.

It's flat so just need a plate.

If the bottom can be modified I think this will work with vacume pump.

The pump is for over 400 Ci.

Think my dad would feel better with a Chrysler than an olds.

If I need to change out my dad's

All this guy had to do is use 6/32 screws. The nut fits inside and is held by the retainer.

These look like #8 screws

This should be last Melling mod.

This time I milled it. Then used a belt sander.

The adapter plate is 1/2 inch. Cold roll. Used belt sander to smooth it out.

Drove carribean out to gerrys..backing in to my place engine died..runs real rough.

Thought vapor lock.

going to put points rotor plugs and wires on see if that solves it.


So what humber is this Caribbean? It looks in the photos like it had factory air (looks like A/C vents on top of the dash)?

Is there a photo of the serial plate in the left door jamb?

Thanks.

Don't know the number. does have factory air. Not hooked up.

Car is stored now. It is for sale. I don't own it. I was only correcting what these top dollar mechanics screwed up.

Gerry ..psw. Probably can figure what number it is.

Hello,

Thanks much.

Yes I certainly knew this car. It was originally original MKN with original wire wheels... until somebody did this to it. Hope the skirts are still around. Heartbreaking.

Thanks again.
