I showed my brother that video,as he was a baker for 25 years and done that every night when everyone else sleeps. He broke his fingers in the rolling machine as like with any machine,....lose your concentration for a second and it could be your last!. That is one hard job and you really have to be organized.
Good video, Bob!

The Street Dominator manifold is a great street manifold as it has short runners and if you add a divider down the center of the carb base it helps with the bottom end. This single plane thinks it's a dual plane. The ports are a bit smaller than my M-1 manifold. NO adapter required when using a TQ as the SD is a speadbore manifold. The warped body on the TQ's is a misconception. Sure there has been,but it's usually from an overheated engine. I've seen plenty of warped afb's,holleys etc. when you throw excess heat to em'. The most common failures are the bowel wells that are epoxied in place. I remove it all and JB weld them in place as the factory stuff gets brittle after a lot of years and cycling hot and cold. I ran an 850 TQ for years with a SD manifold and it is one great package and will clear ANY hood.


You can get some "smoothie" or other form of "fisheye" remover at any body shop supply place. Not only does it remove fisheyes,it causes the paint to run out a little better after you lay it on the panel. I've got one of those huge decatent driers in the garage as i spray lots and it is sure nice to have.
It's lookin' good steve.

I've got a Demonsizzler modified carb from David also and it runs like a scalled cat. Here is a great discussion on the TQ's and David gives away a few secrets and what to look for. Lot's of great info there. Here is my latest build of a 72' TQ for a 340 A/T #6139SA. I can't post a picture as my download of the pics are too much,but maybe they will come up in the add i've got for it on Kijjiji.  You can see how i modified the lever to accept a manual choke cable so if anyone is looking on how to set up a linkage for manual,this is a good reference.

Tech- - Engine / 76 400, 452 heads on a 413??
« on: November 13, 2010, 06:09:32 PM »
 I just brought a set of 340 "J" heads into the machine shop and although i've got 8 stellite seats to put in,i was only going to do that if the valves were sunk too much. Turns out after probably about 30,000 miles on them,it wasn't the unleaded fuel that killed the valve job,but BAD valve guides.I guess my new brass valve guides may outlast the valve job this time.My machinist is a MOPAR guy and he knows all about the high nickel content in these heads. Actually he mentioned that after so many cycles and the valves coming in contact so many times,it actually hardens the seats (kind of like tempering steel). I elected to spend the money elsewere. Being that i supplied the new stainless valves which are already cut,he only charged me half the price of a job as he only has to do the seats.Not too many other places will do that. $22 to bake,magnaflux and shot peen each head,now there's a deal!

Make sure the bushing fits properly on the end of the trans shaft. I had to ream one a bit as it was too tight,and i had a heck of a time getting that shaft to go in. Those were the days when i could lay the tranny on my chest and muscle them in, i'd be in the trauma room!

GREAT setup Steve!!! I've got a 10X20 garage that i use for fishing as we go to some remote places and stay for a week to 10 days every year,and on the inside poles,between the floor and roof we string those clear icicle christmas lights along the sides horizontaly all around including the peaks. Gives off a lot of light and the LED lights don't use much power for the Honda generator. No heat from LED's that's for sure,compared to those. We also string them on the outside so the DRUNKS don't trip over an axe or something sharp at 2 a.m.

If you went to a small engine shop or a marina/atv shop,they should have em' as they are quite common holding on throttle cables and such.

Quote from: POLARACO
They are 1.5's
  The LA engines are 1.5's and the magnums are 1.6 from the factory. Hughes probably took that in to account when they ground the cam and i'm wondering if when they quote the lift,it is based on the 1.6 ratio. You might have to look at your cam card.
