Kurt Busch is officially in, having ran a 6.531@211.46 mph on his 3rd qualifying pass. Not sure who he will line up against as it's too early to tell. We got a few Dodges in there and hopefully Busch don't choke. Hey......he could get beat by a girl, as Erica Enders is solidly in the field.

General Mopar Discussions / Daytona 500

I for one...LOVED the race. This is the only track you will see them bump draft like that. Some of the older races were getting like F1 Parade cars. Jump out of line and your done for. Jump out here drop back,pick up a dancing partner and even a low budget team like the Wood Bros. car and (4th) Bobby Labonte can make enough racing money to compete for another 10-15 races. These cars have to evolve mostly every year and safety is an issue. If Dale was driving one of these cars only 10 years later, he would probably still be here and he would be the first to say,"this was fun". NHRA is still in the blood though!

Tech- - Engine / what engine is in my 1962 Chrysler Saratoga
« on: February 11, 2011, 06:32:49 PM »
I'm figuring the heads are at least pre-64 as the 62's and 63's had 4 bolt valve covers vs. the 64 6 bolt covers. Also the 440 source  http://www.440source.com/blocks.htm table suggests this is a 63-64 383 block from the 2128854 casting number suggests. Could it be a 62' block? Those early 383 blocks could have been cast in late 62' with that casting number.

Kurt's definately not one to lift when he gets sideways in the roundy rounds,so it ought to be pretty interesting for him to get on a slippery NHRA track. All the best to him. Allen Johnsons Dodges got 6 poles last year,so you know they are making the power. Just need to get more consistent. If he makes the 16 car field he will impress me!

Tech- - Engine / Valve Cover Gaskets
« on: January 27, 2011, 02:10:50 PM »
I've searched some forums on other sites and most of them agree that the Mr. Gaskets http://www.summitracing.com/parts/MRG-5877/ are the ones to get. The most expensive Moroso's were the worst. When i get my 340 heads (not v4 heads,i repeat Steve,....NOT v4)back from the machine shop next week,i'll post pics to show you what i do to stop leaks in LA heads. In a nutshell...i mix up a bunch of JB weld and fill in the surface of the head where the gasket lays on,then i run a semi-coarse axe file over it to smoothen  the very porous surface. Cheap but effective. The JB weld seems to stand up to the heat well.

Tech- - Engine / Valve Cover Gaskets
« on: January 22, 2011, 10:03:09 AM »
Those valve covers are quite rigid,and if you snug them they will be fine even w/ reg. cork gaskets. The stock ones tended to leak as people would overtighten them and they bent,and you would have to take the valve cover off and manipulate the metal w/ a small tack hammer to straighten them. I'm pretty impressed with the quality of the chrome MP valve covers i just recieved for my 360 build. These covers are so heavy it's incredible. One of the reason they went to a different valve cover on the new magnums was to get ris of those leaks that the LA engines were famous for. They hit that one out of the ballpark!
