AAR Cuda Mopar 340 TA Engine block
In 1969-1970 Chrysler made a special 340 engine for the AAR Cuda and the
T/A Challenger. These engines were different than a standard 340 used in
other Mopars. The TA engines had the designation embossed on the block,
driver side. If you're buying a TA 340 also check the heads by removing the
oil cap on the passenger side. With the cap off look inside and the rear
rocker should be offset. You may need a flashlight to see it.
If you scattered the original engine you may have received a standard 340
replacement block. I've heard stories both ways. My buddy back in 1970 went
through 3 warranty transmissions before they said enough.
Some of the later blocks which were left over made their way into 1971 340
Road Runners and other cars. If you're looking at a 340, look closely
because the TA340 are still around.
I hope you enjoy the video and it helps you.
Saved from the Scrap Yard! Challengers, Chargers, RT's, Hemis even Winged Mopars!
Captain Right-time-right-place, strikes again! I was just out riding my
bike when I saw this black Challenger on the back of a flat-bed truck. The
owner was closing the gate and just about to set off when I leaped off my
bike & pulled my camera out.
It turns out he didn't just have one sweet Mopar (which happened to have a
426 Hemi) he had A GARAGE FULL OF THEM. It was all a bit of a blur and I
was still puffing from having been riding, and then being gob-smacked, and
then non-stop asking questions.
I wasn't able to catch the whole story but it seems the Brisbane City
(Australia) government had Assumed (confiscated/commandeered) his land and
had to remove all of his possessions with in 30 days or lose it. Had he not
done so, all would have been scrapped. If that had happened his only course
of action would've been to sue the government to reclaim damages.
That would really have sucked because the cash wouldn't have brought them

Mega Mopar - Huge Car Show Drag Racing Burnouts - Supercharged Action at Gateway MSP
This past weekend Jordan and I went to Mega Mopar at Gateway Motorsports
Park and it was awesome! They had a huge car show, a swap meet, nostaglia
drags, funny cars, a wheelstander, and more. We really had a great time! I
tried to pack as much action into the video as I could. There was a sea of
awesome Mopars....Daytonas, Challengers, Chargers, Darts, Super Bees...the
list goes on and on. It was a weekend filled with hemis, wedges, Superchargers, and dual carbs. If you were there,
and your car is not in this video, please don't dispair....I will have much
more coverage coming up in the days ahead. I hope you found it
interesting....thanks for watching!

How To Build a Chevy 383 Stroker - Part 1: Block & Crank
This is a new multi part series on how to assemble a small block Chevy 383
stroker motor (actually it is an internal combustion engine - "motors" are
electric - but I digress LOL).
MOST of the assembly applies to any small block engine. I have divided up
the assembly procedure into many parts so you can skip to the specific part
you are looking for, i.e: crank, camshaft, timing chain or how to adjust
This whole series was shot by myself with my iPhone so presenting, filming
and assembling could all be done smoother but "ir-regardless" I hope it
Thank you. Shannon http://www.corvettesandcustoms.org
