68 Dart 340 4 Speed Run
My 1968 Dart after I transformed it from a slant 6 auto to a car with a
1968 340 that I built myself, 4 speed manual trans., and an 8.75, with 3:91
ratio limited slip diff. In the beginning, the first car you see pass by
is a COP! I waited a few seconds for him to get down the road a ways
before I took off. Sorry about the poor sound quality from the camera.

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.

A burnout video as promised. Here is a big thanks to all the folks at
http://www.forabodiesonly.com/ who helped me turn a trailer of parts into
this restored 1969 Dart GTS. Those were some sticky Mickey's after that.
