Transmission and Drivetrain / Re: Torqueflight to manual conversion?

Another suggestion; if do this come back and start a thread, the members can then give you very specific timely advice that should help you through this with a lot less drama. One point reference the hump is not to cut a hole until you mount the transmission (without the shifter attached), you then can see exactly where the shifter will need to come through the floor, this gives you a data point for cutting the floor. The hump is for clearance for the shifter and itís rods so you donít need to cut a big hole first. Once you have the shifter location you will see how the hump fits the existing trans tunnel and then you can cut. You will not have to cut the entire size of the hump, only some of it to allow the shifter and rods clearance. Basically itís cut s little, test fit, repeat as needed.

Personally Iíd wait for a 440 car. I had a 340 Cuda but sold it. Now building a 440 Charger. Nothing like the torque of a big block.

Thanks.  I figured that that the fracture occurred from a "jam" like iced wiper blades but I'm not familiar with this engineering.  :bigsmile: I've seen a NOS gear on line, and I thought that I saw a crack. I'm thinking that it is intentional but it seems odd.

Mine looked like that as well. I was told it would be ok. Check with passionformopars on here. She repairs these and may have a gear if you want 1. Have also seen new on e-bay once in a while

Electrical / 2 speed wiper motor output gear
« Last post by redo1973 on February 22, 2018 - 07:19:02 pm »
I'm in the process of restoring my two speed motor, part number  3431606.  In the process or cleaning the "gunk" to get the switch working I notice two fracture cracks on the output gear part # 3431560.  Does anyone know if this is built into the design?  I'm trying to find a NOS item but am unable to determine if this is a stock design.

Big Blocks / 512 six pack in progress-- couple questions
« Last post by Cuda4u on February 22, 2018 - 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
4.250'stroke,4.360"bore
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
