1968 Mopar 340, First Run Before Install
Here is a 68 Dodge 340 I completely rebuilt for my 68 Dart. Started it and made sure it ran good before install.
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.
