This is a HARD question!. My fave. that i drroooolll about every time i see it is this 59 Junk 2dr hdtp w/ huge fins and a 700 sq.ft. interior with a light mauve colour! This is a tank but glides as smooth as the space shuttle in 0 gravity!!!. Performance wise...68 hemi Dart 4 gear that will SPANK that Catalina w/2 spark plug wires pulled!. I never trust C&D as they were known to cheat BIG time and got caught numerous times as they were sleeping in the same bed together with Pontiac!. That swiss cheeze Catalina is definately a MONSTER though!,as i'm not taking it away from the car,as this is a rare and very desireable set of wheels no matter which way you look at it!  Everyday car.....can't beat a HONDA!

Tech- - DRIVE TRAIN / Adjusting Bands
« on: October 20, 2008, 06:42:47 PM »
When you use a 1/4" torque wrench,you will have to get an 8 point socket (i think it was 7/16') as the adjuster is square!. This drove me crazy until the snap-on guy showed up and he is a mopar man,so he knew what i needed! $10 and i was on my way!

Tech- - Engine / Ignition control boxes. Color = ?
« on: October 20, 2008, 05:35:20 PM »
The MP boxes had an "rpm peak" as to decide which box to run!. I'm only pulling this from the depth of my brain so don't quote me on this! The Orange box had a limit of about 5,500 rpm before it started dropping!. The Silver (chrome) box had about a 6,500 limit and the Gold was 6,500+. The old (US made)Orange boxes were so much better than the new Mexican made boxes and apparently they do FAIL alot!. The aftermarket boxes are mostly all the same,just different colours depending on the vendor!. I had an old orange box on my Duster and that 340 would scream to 7,200 and when i changed to a "chrome" box it still would,nt go any higher,so the valvetrain was definately the limiting factor there,and not the boxes!. I switched to an FBO system and NO problems on the 418" stroker small block now!. here's an interesting chart on the different boxes! http://www.4secondsflat.com/a688dropcyltest.html Check out their other info on ignitions for mopars,....as you just plug it in and go play,.....but with all the voltage that the well designed ,BUT limited potential that a STOCK system has!

Tech- - Engine / Difference in Engines
« on: October 28, 2007, 03:19:27 PM »
They however,were planning on releasing the 360 in 71' as my 71' "J" heads are clearly marked 360 even though it was on a 340 block!. I would love to hear an explanation about that one also!. I do know that the 73' and 74' blocks were highly sought after from the Super Stock crowd as the webbs were very thick compared to later years!

Tech- - Engine / Difference in Engines
« on: October 26, 2007, 05:17:40 PM »
Backing up just a bit to the 428 CJ engine,...there were actually 2, 428 engines. In 1969 the 428 CJ was a big seller,however,if you checked off the box,and ordered the "optional" 3:91 or 4:30 gear ratio with Traction-loc diff.,you got the SCJ 428,and in Feb,you could order the "Drag-Pac" option for $147 and get the SCJ 428. This stood for Super Cobra Jet!. I had a Complete SCJ,4 spd w/9" rear with the 4:30 trac-loc in my 57 Ford that i once owned. The SCJ consisted of External oil cooler,w/ 427 "Lemans"capscrew rods,special crankshaft w/large damper (sort of like a 440-6 bottom end) and they were assembled and balanced by a special team of workers. The hp and torque #s stayed the same however,as the intake,heads etc. stayed the same!. The difference between the 360 and 340 also were many,although similar,the 340 fits in the same catagory as the 426 Hemi.That being,just like the 426,..there was never a low performance 340,only a detuned 340 in 72. And if the 426 would have been made in 72',...it,too would have been detuned.. And to back it up even further,..the 302 chev engine,was just a 283 crank in a 327 block,nothing spectacular there!. In fact,..if they would have given the 327 the same parts as the 302,they would have had more hp,because they would have had close to 10% more cubic inches,.......Just my thoughts on those subjects.
