    Guys, I am just an "old fart in a dart", err valiant, or sweptline.

    Sweptline Serpentine

    I am just about to call this done. I still have a little to do on it, but not much. I did add an idler pulley. It turned out looking better than I thought it would.

    Sweptline Serpentine

    I found a small piece of 1/2" aluminum diamond plate and whittled out a crude top bracket. I also band sawed a different Magnum bracket. It is getting closer to looking like I want.

    360 heads on a LA 318 vs Magnum heads on a LA 318

    Performance wise you've had both and have done quite well with both. I think if you do one of your mild port jobs it is a toss up as to which is better.

    360 heads on a LA 318 vs Magnum heads on a LA 318

    Generally cracks in Mag heads are easy to spot after a good wire brushing. You can also spray starting fluid on them and watch the area between the seats. It evaporates quickly, but will stay in the crack a might longer. I've pressure checked a few Mag heads that were cracked and no leaks, but...

    I found this channel this morning. I thought I'd post it here since I'm kind of partial to sweptlines. Check it out and give him a sub.

    my Low dollar 318 hop-up project

    318 connecting rods

    Lay one next to a stock sbc rod that the lowbuck sbc guys spin pretty hard, and no one would doubt their strength.

    The for sale section

    All of the best deals go down after I go to bed. So much for that "Early to bed, early to rise " stuff.

    Voltage Regulator

    All 3 of my sons drive older mopars everyday. That is all they have. Our odds of getting bad parts may be greater than most. We've gotten water pumps that leak out of the seal right out of the box, Pitman arm that went bad within a few months ( Yes it had grease in it). On a newer 97 Intrepid I...

    Go ahead and do the short ones. I'll watch them, winter storm warning here, and I need something to do while drinking coffee. Who knows, maybe you'll pick up a couple more subs.

    Voltage Regulator

    I think they have a slotted screw dial on the back side.

    Voltage Regulator

    Our last one was from Orieley's, did not work, they replaced it and that one is still working couple months later. But, even though they replaced it, we were still out the time to remove, drive back to town, and the gas we spent. This last failure was on my son's valiant, and is his only...

    Voltage Regulator

    Yeah, for sure the old ones were pretty reliable, the newer parts store ones are what seem to fail.

    Voltage Regulator

    I have had several VRs on different cars go bad in recent years, some bad right out of the box, some lasting only a couple months. I found this, and wondered if anybody here has tried one? Good, Bad, or Ugly? What's your thoughts? Thanks. QS8313F - Heavy Duty Finned Adjustable Regulator for...

    DARTFREAK75 vs 318willrun at nonamenationals ??

    I was the reason one race did not happen. I did not get my junk running in time. But, 318willrun and I never did bicker about it. We even threw a lot of ideas for our projects back and forth in PMs and phone calls. Either one of us would gladly help the other. I did get a lot accomplished on...

    Sweptline Serpentine

    I am not sure on the year, but I think they were all the same. They made a non ac bracket that would have taken less sawzall time. If I get bored, I may whittle a few more ounces off of it since my truck is heavy.
