Enjoy the read. Part 2 (Sept. ‘69) coming soon!
Anybody want to join the Army with me? My recruiter says there is a Buddy Program and we can stay together during our two year hitch. He said if we sign up today we will be out by 1973. Says we’ll probably just go to Germany and party the whole time.
Thanks for posting this article, it was very entertaining! What happened in post #13?
That was an advertisement right after the Mopar article. Wonder how many guys tore that little card out and sent it in to the address listed for “Army Opportunities” back in ‘69?
Since the bore and stroke of the 340 seems to be the magic number, has anybody used a 360 block and destroked the 3 5/8 to a 3.31 stroke like the 340. I know it would be a custom crank because of the bearings, but look how many more 340's there could be. I had one back in 71 in a Duster and that baby ran great.
God bless’ them and thanks to everyone of them. More than a dirty job in a nasty biz. Looking forward to part two.
Have you ever spoke to Kevin @ SK speed. He loves the 340 and thinks very highly of it. IDK if you could destroke a 360 crank to a 3.31 throw. Is it possible? Hughes engines has a thing (that I’m sure someone else makes and be purchased cheaper) that would allow a small journal crank to be dropped in the large journal 360. It’s pricey but if it is the bore and stroke combo your looking for…… Hughes Engines
I’ll work on uploading the security nd part tonight. It’s great to have the magazines in hand, flipping through the old pages.
Thanks for posting...that was fun to read
No, in fact this is the first time I thought about it. I see Scat makes custom cranks, but I haven't spoken to any one as yet. I'm away now so will look into next week.
go-fish I dumped your photos into making a quick pdf with Libre Office. Nothing special just dumped 'em in there https://www.forabodiesonly.com/mopar/attachments/moparmanipulatin-pdf.1715765649/
It's a beautiful thing
They should reproduce those!
I agree to them both !
