"Been a long time since I removed mine to have my dash redyed, but I'm pretty sure it was secured from the other side. You'll have to remove the dash to do it. This brace in this picture I attached should be what keeps it in place. "

I looked for diagrams and pictures online with no luck and my shop manual tells me nothing. I'm hoping someone could help me here. Thank you, George…See More

Self-Starter article on the 429 engine series

Posted on May 18, 2013 at 10:31am 3 Comments

I would like to obtain a copy of the Self-Starter's article on the 429 engine series.  I think it was originally published in the July 2003 edition.  Does anyone have a copy to share or any ideas of how to obtain a copy?

Thank you.
