Restoration Spotlight
by Jamie Hyde

Inline Tube has produced the entire 1963 - 64 Ram brake lines. Click here for pictures. This was our Chrysler 300 Club part project RP-1402. For those of you who may not know, the front brake lines are different on the 63-64 Ram cars as they use the remote booster mounted under the driver's side fender. The front brake tee is located ahead of the upper control arm and that makes the rear line longer, plus the crossover to the passenger side is then shorter. Also the tubes that pass between the slave cylinder and the wheel house and line that runs down to the slave from the master are different than the non ram cars.
As a plus, Gary Goers sells the bushings for the remote brake tubes that pass through the wheel house. I suggest that you order them from Gary if you are doing the brake tube replacement as mine were very brittle.
On the brake line subject, all three of the flexible hydraulic brake hoses are available from Rock Auto. These are very inexpensive but they may not pass judging as they have SAE DOT markings all over them, however they fit perfectly.

These old movies look very interesting and I think the Club might appreciate them. At first glance, I saw no films specifically on any 300s but they might be in there.

Write us with whatever might be on your mind.
If you like picture puzzles, here are three new ones from our Lake George meet.

This is in our driveway from 1996. The older guy is Gloria's brother who just happened to be up from Virginia for Thanksgiving with his mother and his son (the younger guy in this picture). The F in the garage is my car just before it was hauled to Annapolis for painting. I didn't get it back for over a year and a half. Our son Lloyd was here for Thanksgiving too but he had to go back home so he could be at work Saturday, which is why he isn't in the picture.

Lloyd did all of the machine work on the engine and brought it up here to us in his truck. He doesn't paint things so I had to do it. I did it while it was hanging from this tripod and then bolted it to the silver engine stand that you see. The driveway is blue chip so we had to put down plywood in order to roll the motor stand back onto the concrete floor garage.

I didn't have a cherry picker so I used the tripod method. I'd done this kind of stuff several times before this way. Nothing like a little redneck engineering to get things done.

A restoration that began 30 years ago is now completed.
