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.

Daihatsu Rocky wth 340 Mopar V8! Streetwize Performance Project Update Clip 3 of 3
Here it is gang....sorry it took so long to get the Video up, I've been going through some family issues so Rocky got bumped down the priority list a bit.
Please see the previous video for all the specs on the 341" Motor, this thing really turned out stout, it feels like it wants to jump out tof the frame. I can't wait for spring! I'm gonna try to make the Pinks ALL OUT event coming up in Charlotte in April. Still got to get the 4.56 Geared 8 3/4 Mopar Posi and 11" drum brakes up under her. Thanks for watching and feel free to ask any questions you may have!!
