I would guess the part that has had the least exposure to sun and elements and therefore being as close to original as…"
Hey guys, take a look at these pictures. I had my dash repainted but the color does not match the other pieces in the car. The data tag is gone on my car, so I had to guess at the color code.

The intake manifold has a tube that runs through the exh passage in the intake. It is to heat up air for the choke system on the carb. If the tube cracks, exh gas gets into the tube and out the bottom…"
"I had exactly the same issue years ago, on a six pack mopar set up on a challenger. It would make your eyes water, and give the worst headache if you were idling in an enclosed space, just as you're describing.I bought them through jegs,…"
"Thanks for the reply. I'm not getting the smell inside, just hard to work on with engine running even with garage door open. The heat riser is gone and the new carb came with a spacer plate and gaskets that were large enough to block those heat…"
"Do you realize the stock intake manifold also has heat passages at the front of its base of the carb --heated by exhaust gasses that would have to be addressed and considered when making as much of a brand carb change as you have
"What engine and year are we taking about ? What did you do with the old choke tube for the old carb located in the intake manifold ( goes thru the intake manifold )
If you have not closed that off you may be getting exhaust gasses out that tube but…"

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back. It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…
