My old gear... that poor 440 was a trooper dealing with that nonsense...

I'll save most of you some time... from your bits of internet prophetics....

I'm gonna kill it...
I drive it too hard...
atta boy... (Ar pal right!)
It ran like that?...
Slippage anyone...
lets put an egg under his gas pedal...
someone take that car away from him...
I'd never let it get that bad...
etc etc...(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)

Wow that one has had seen better days....looks like the one I removed from my old 66 falcon futura with a 289....spun the wheels going around a corner....being 17 and all (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)...and then the car sputtered and died....tried everything to get it going but we finaly discovered the timing was WAY OFF...Over 180 degrees...(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley3.gif)

   Should this be posted in the "engine tech" section, or better yet, under "jokes" (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif) .Really, was the car running on that gear?

I found the T Shirts for 18 Bucks.  Fruit of the loom shirts. 
 
Can you imagine Mobby wearing an apple as a hat?  He already looks like a water melon

Sigh, whatever happened with that, I'm sure I'll get yelled at for some reason, but its about time we get that rolling again. I'll have to talk to Mobby.

FOTL is crappy quality in my experience - can you get Jockey? Might cost a bit more... my 2 cents.

Back to topic - I had a '72 T & C do the same thing at 110k miles,
also a 440 and 400 had bottom end problems at low 100Ks mileages... but
I never had a timing gear, or rod or crank bearing problem with a 318
or  360 ...  tougher bottom end? Less power = less
problems?

That's why Polaraco is a small block.
 
I have way too many big block cars. . .
 
I decided to leave the 51 a 250 6 cyl
 
I'm looking for a dual carb intake for it

Not a lot of power, but they go forever!  I had basically the same engine in a '37 Dodge seedan

I got from 2 old spinsters, all original, still ran like a Swiss watch at 45 yrs old.  I'd keep it a 6 too.

OK  Smart A
 
The one in the car now has a blown #6 rod.  I located a set of 30 over piston sets to push it up a tad from the original 250.6 .

How many miles were on that chain? Makes me think both the '68 440 powered cars here should get new ones.  Did the car run at all?

Do you want to know how many miles?  Or how many pounds?
 
The miles were about 70,000.  The pounds were 320, amplified by a size 13 shoe.
 
So if you do the math. .  13 X 70,000 = 910,000 miles of Mobby miles.

The age of the plastic on the gear is more of a factor....my 30,000 mile Roadrunner had almost no plastic left on it. Steve's 15,000 mile 72 Polara may need one soon just because of age.

I did the one in the Newport Custom at 100K. It was ready, but it could have gone longer. The convertible one is done as well. I'll freshen the engine in the New Yorker when I do it. 300 is a long term project but I think it needs one as the timing is a PITA.
