Big Blocks / 512 six pack in progress-- couple questions
« Last post by Cuda4u on Today at 05:51:57 pm »
I have been following all the striker builds for last 4 years (wealth of info on this forum) and now dropped my block off at a very reputable engine shop.
My car is a 70 cuda 440 six pack, 4 speed A833 passion overdrive with 3.55 gears. This was stock stroke and .030 over bore

The upgrade
Trickflow 240 heads--- I will port the Edlebrock six pack aluminum intake to match-- thermostat choke will be blocked off.
Comp hyd roller cam custom ground somewhere around 230 -236 duration to be determined from builder
MSD ready to run distributor with vacuum advance blocked
TTI 1-7/8" tube headers with 3" exhaust X-Pipe.
I will stay with the six pack carb setup for now-currently has the quick fuel jet plates in front and rear carbs

Question on the fuel system. I will get the promax billet throttle base plates for front and rear. I asked them about the center carb metering plate--- There will be no vacuum with this and they would like to know cam specs and can set me up with custom metering plate for center carb--------- Question#1- I could not find any feedback on internet for center carb metering plate other than you have to run the tightest vacuum diaphragm springs to keep front and rear carbs opening to soon. Anyone using this?

Question#2- I currently have carter fuel pump at fuel tank with stock 5/16" ID fuel lines- 3/8"OD --- I'm hoping this is sufficient. I will install a fuel pressure regulator/gauge under hood and is it necessary to run a fuel return back to tank to keep fuel from boiling off? I read a post on a forum regarding this

Thanks in advance for reading this and any feedback will be appreciated!!

Of everything I read about cams on this forum, it appears to be the Lunati 20200712--231/239 duration is what you guys with the 512 strokers like? This will be street/show car- maybe a pass down the track

Got a little bit of work done since the last post. Took the Challenger off the rotisserie, and put the major panels on to check how everything is looking. After just putting them on everything is fairly close, which is exciting! I was very happy looking into the car and seeing all solid metal. I even got a shoutout from Summit Racing on FB for a post after it came off the rotisserie, for their work-in-progress Wednesday.

Hi, Will here, thank you for having me. I've been meaning to pick up a 70 Cuda for the last 5 years and now I feel like the time has come. Need to do my homework first, so hope to get some advice and insights here. Will appreciate any guidance on the boards  :newbie:
Hello all,
I noticed my car seemed lower than normal. The drivers side rear is sagging. How do I determine what is the problem? weak spring? weak shock? torsion bar? Thanks in advance
Good points 'Cuda Hunter. I think that the original post  was long enough ago that he is no longer feeling nostalgic or has found another car and has moved on. I still want to find out if he and/or the original owner would like to help me out with pictures or documentation on the car.
I remember when Mazda dealers were doing this with the Miata when it first came out.  I think they were adding around $10000 to $15000 onto the MSRP Price at the time.

Jim S. at JS Restorations. He uses a stainless steel resistance coil wire when he rebuilds them, nobody else does. He is a member here (Slotts)  but hasn't posted on this site since September 2017. Click that Moparts link to see his work.
Interior and Gauges / Dash backlight dimmer switch, Best source for?

Greetings! I wasn’t sure if I should post this here or, in the ‘Electrical’ forums but, here goes:

am in need of a replacement dash backlighting dimmer switch for my 1973 Challenger — where’d be the best / recommended source for this part?

Thanks in advance! (I appreciate the assist as I am buried with work and replacing this part is holding up getting the dash backlights working again)  cruise-in weather is gonna be here soooooon!  :thumbsup:
