If I had a set of good magnumheads, and a LA 318 with a couple burned valves............. What would it take to put them together.
I have just finished gettin all the parts together for this. Was hopin to assemble my long block today, but I got too much else to do. Anyway, here's MY list.
I'm gonna go ahead I think and get the magnum timing cover and do a serpentine belt. From what I have found out, it's pretty much a bolt on and since I'm building from the bare block up, why not?
Course you know which cam I'm runnin. LOL
I think that about covers it.
make sure you use a magnum water pump as well, I'm sure you already know there reverse rotation
Stroker, what is the total price in parts for this conversion so far?
I can drill and tap the rocker feed holes, right? No special block off?
Yeah...I was takin for granted since I mentioned the magnum timing cover that that went along. But thank you for nailin it down. lol That would suck if somebody put an LA pump on because I think they'll interchange.
The serpentine belt is much nicer, but I wanted the engine bay on my Dart to look almost completely old-school.
