Technical Information

Below you will find various technical recourses regarding issues and general questions i get calls for all the time. Hope this stuff can help everyone out.

This page will be updated periodically as we get time.. Check back often!


What does the factory Power Steering Assist setup consist of?

Below is a picture of the items needed to install the factory power assist steering. There are also tapered shims to adjust the front axle caster angle, which are installed under the front leaf springs (not pictured). You will also need the correct truck style power steering pump and engine bracket setup per your engine specifications.


What is the factory paint code/color name for my trucks paint?

Below are the original paint chip sheet for the 1961-1971 dodge trucks.













Hood Adjustment Procedure

I receive a couple of calls a week regarding the back side of the hood sticking up. This is a VERY common issue. I've included below an instructional diagram explaining how to properly adjust/shim your hood. If your adding a ton of shims and you still can't get the hood to seat; more than likely you have worn hinges/springs. I strongly suggest trying to adjust it first though. We can help with replacements if needed.


Door Adjustment Procedure

There are numerous ways to install/adjust your doors. This is the best way i've personally used. Make sure you have solid door hinges. If your door hinges are wobbly, there is no point in trying to adjust the door. You need to rebuild/replace the hinge(s) first. We can help with either one you require.


I have a connection through a Dodge dealership out of Kansas that has located a few original sales invoices for Dodge Sweptline Trucks between 1969-1971. Please do not send me your serial number and ask if they have your original sales invoice. I will not respond.

These documents are not for sale, they will be given to the verified current owner of the truck.
