440 Camshaft drive FAIL!!!
So our rebuilt 440 with only 300 miles (at most) on it, developed a problem when stopping at a traffic light, it wouldn't idle. It had lost 20 deg. of ignition timing, so we twisted the distributor, and it ran well again. Then a short time later it did the same thing again, another 20 deg. of timing lost. We couldn't twist the distributor far enough, so had to pull and adjust the drive gear, to get it firing at the right time, but this time it wouldn't run quite right, and lost top end power. We tried everything a group of us could think of, but in the end pulled off the timing cover, to discover that the single bolt drive with 1 locating pin had suffered a major failure! We hope no valves are bent, but are still determining that, 2 chrome moly pushrods are bent, the timing sprocket is trashed, and we are NOT Amused!!! These were all brand new name brand parts, so why did they fail??? We will be going with a 3 bolt camshaft sprocket retainer this time!

BAD ASS 440 MOPAR CAM FROM HELL * 4-SPEED DANA REAR FLOW MASTERS * START UP & INSANE IDLE
My friend just today bought this awesome '65 Plymouth Belvedere 440, 4-speed, Dana Rear and totally restored. The builder had not even quite finished it and decided to sell. He had never even started the brand new engine or driven it out the garage. What a damn deal. The guy cut no corners at all. Everywhere he could he bought the real Mopar Parts. The car as you can see is gorgeous. You are hearing it run for the first time on this video.
