    It's all factory parts. Why do you think it won't work?

    They should fit just fine. I'm running a 340 driver and a "machined" 360 magnum passenger on my '69 Barracuda (P/S, P/B, AC). Unless you already have the 340 manifolds, the 340 driver and 360 magnum are much cheaper.

      Hi.
      I have the left one but Think that is very tight fit. Have you tried the 360 magnum on the left side.

      i am just asking will the stock 340 engine with the factory 340 hp manifolds fit well with the power steering gear box in a 68 dart? i already have these parts and just thinking ahead. someone seen what i had and asked me if it would work now i am wondering. its all stock stuff so i assume it fits with no issues??? just thought i would ask here to be sure.thanks

      thanks for the tip on the magnum manifolds ,i didnt know that..someone else told me the 360 can make more power than a 340...best i remember a 340 stock was a powerful engine stock compared to any other engines ive had in the past. but i have never had a magnum 360

        I have a 360 in my 68 and its fine. I just pulled the motor with the manifolds attached and the only issue was a little dance around the power brake just a bit of twist and turn other than that no issues

          wise choice not using headers.
          they don't do a damn thing when the speed sign says 35 and there's a cruiser sitting across the street.

            Yep it will work fine. I have a 68 with the early 340 manifolds, and power steering, no problems.

              Didn't a '68 Coke available with a 340?
              And you said you have the correct parts, same year manifolds?

              I don't get it. You have stock parts but wonder if they will fit? Like the one that came with the car?
