Re: 53 cavalier just won't fire

Drips at the various drain plugs, if not caused by simply not being tight, are usually the result of defects in the mating surfaces of the pan, the gasket, and/or the threaded plug itself.

Re: 352 Overhauler??

Mike, it would be helpful to know what part of the country (I'm assuming USA) you're in, or better yet the state and nearest large city.
