OK  Once again Blabber Mouth    
 
Start a discussion.  General BS might be appropriate. . .Link these together.   Actually, it would be a great discussion if Potatoe can stop edging on Mobby. .  .

So I would rather spend money on a specialized company like Indy, if I had the bucks for such a motor.  [/QUOTE]
 
Agreed

The Skirt is the bottom of the engine where the oil pan bolts on.
 
I might add, Chebby had to 4 bolt HP mains because their shirts were higher than Mopar.  Mopars blocks are beefier from the start.  Touch of trivia

The older ones had a narrower skirt so they had shorter strokes.  In some cases it's a fit problem that old Hemi solves

Steve,
It’s actually a ’74.  The good news is no Cats.  J   Between looking at the FSM and poking at the engine I think I’ve got most of it figured.  There is a temp control thing in the aircleaner that controls the flap that lets warm air in to the snorkel (once I replace the missing duct)  There’s some sort of control thing on the side of the aircleaner that does something mysterious with the line to the vacuum advance on the distributor.  That has been bypassed.  Finally there is a temp control in the top radiator tank that is supposed to control the EGR valve in the intake.  That is all just loose (pretty sure I’m getting a vacuum leak from that line)
 
My thought is to check to see if any of the stuff actually functions properly.  If so try the motor both with and without and see what difference it makes.  If they don’t work, will just bypass them properly.  If I’m going to drive it this winter, pretty sure I will want the warm air duct working.
 
Oh, and not too worried about SCMODS, but then my violations list is single digit rather than triple. ;)
 
Good you found allot of the stuff.  Too bad you can't adjust the Cam.  The Cams were the main item they messed with for the emmissions.. . . Never did anything for the car except Pee off allot of people with lousey running and help the oil companies
We used to block the EGR port all together.  They did something to the carbs of that time which slowed the cars down.  The Gadget on the air cleaner was a timing advance delay.  It worked on the ambient temp.  Bypassing them never seemed to do much.  It might have been part of the faster warm up thing.

That's because it is a vapor, not a liquid.  Will burn more evenly and completely

I think you said that was a 75?  If it is, it's laiden down with all sorts of polutoion controls.  Most of them never worked anyway.  A finely tuned engine will produce less emmisions than they did with all that crap on them.
 
That could be the reason for the sluggishness
