As you may know, I recently aquired a 1972 Dodge Challenger with a 383 in it.

After it arrived in my garage, I noticed a significant oil leak.

After talking to the previous owner, he stated the car has leakd since he bought it nearly 3 years ago.

He said he's been looking for a way to fix the one piece rear main and everyone he's talked to says that's typical of those big old Mopars.

Does anyone make a good 2 piece seal for these old beasts? I figure some of you "old skool" Muscle Car guys would have the answer for me.

Hate to tell u this, but it is already a two piece, four piece if ya count the side seals. It will be mess-ie, but try to clean the underneath, and be sure where the oil is coming from. If it's the original motor, it came with a Windage tray. It's oil pan, gasket, Windage tray, second oil pan gasket, block. Because of the two gaskets, leaks where common there. Also ck the oil pressure sending unit/line.

Thanks Jay. It just goes to show the last owner wasn't a Mopar guy. At least I had something to start with. I'm on Mopar Muscle's forum about it too. I'm wondering how I can track down the 318 it came with and the fender tag. They could be helpful in the future.

It has been fixed in my sig line. I kept wondering why it wouldn't shift to 4th.

Okay, so, my alternator decided to the bed. I replaced the alternator and fabed a new bracket . Tried to start the motor and nothing . It seems like it's not getting any fuel . (mind you it's between 20 and 45 degrees in my garage due to hunting season). I put some sta-bil and some heet in the tank. thinking that would help, but no . I know the el-cheapo carquest battery doesn't help . I have an optima red-top and a save-a-battery system on my christmas list . The only other thing I can think of is power to the fuel pump . ... What do you guys think?
