Jeff Lee - October 05, 2013 NHRA Stock Eliminator Dyno 1970 AMC 390
New 1970 AMC 390 engine built per NHRA Stock Class Rules & NHRA published
specifications effective 02/22/2012 for 1970 AMX run in C through E / Stock
class with weight adjustments per class.
Wanted view of secondary throttle rate opening so I stood next to the
engine and took this video. Yes, I see the carb flange nut is vibrating
loose. Some would argue I must be a "loose nut" myself to stand next to an
engine running 8,000 RPM and you'd be right!
Clatter is valve lash and we also found the roller rockers were hitting the
valve covers slightly. That has since been corrected.
No published HP or TQ presently as we are still working on the tune. Carb
is getting work to the emulsion circuits and new MSD Grid ignition system
and back to some more pulls October 8-9, 2013. Then back in the car and
race immediately thereafter.
It's been a long road but it's coming together nicely.
