I have recently purchased a 340 cast date 6-21-67.
I checked the numbers on the rods and found 6 to be 2899496 that is 68-73 340.
I used info from the archives.
2 rods have different #'s 3418645. The list in archives doesn't cross that number. The odd numbered rods are floating like the rest but what are they? Cast,forged?what yr?
I'm a little dissapointed that they are not all the same and that the block was supposed to be std bore and is .040 over but still glad to have stumbled over it to buy.
The crank is still std and a good set of x heads came with it so I'm ok with it. It will make a good street screamer' regardless.
Any numbers crunchers out there?
