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.
Mark Donohue Javelin SST 1970 Stored in Trailer for over 20 years rescued unloaded forklifted
This is a video capturing the unloading of a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST
that was stored in a trailer for over 20 years. I was a little scared
filming this as I did not want to be posting a video of the destruction of
a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST, personally I would have cut the roof off
the trailer and taken the car out with a helicopter, not to worry though as
there were 2 guys inside the trailer ready to catch the car if it fell or
tipped over ...but alas, as risky as it was, a success!!!! 2 other cars
were stored in the trailer as well, a super low mile Gremlin and I think it
was a 1979 AMX, but this was the treasure we were digging for!!!!!! On the
spoiler you will notice "401", this was originally a 390 and if I remember
right it is a Big Bad Orange, Orange or Green, it was not a bad re-paint
but the inside of the door jam reveals the original color, a nice find!!!
The car is in fantastic condition! This was not accomplished on the first
attempt, a few mis-fires happened but it all was okay in the end!
Javelin Turbo 400 Install and an AMC 401 Update
The GM turbo Hydra-Matic 400
transmission has been installed in the 1968 Javelin. The modifications
needed for this are looked at. Depending on which th400 case you have your
trans may sit at a 4 degree angle as this one does. The tear down and
inspection of the AMC 401 is also briefly looked at.

Feels like a Porsche? Yes. 1969 AMX - /Big Muscle
When the American Motors Corporation (AMC) released the AMX back in 1969
the motoring world didn't know what to make of it. It had two seats like a
sports car, a solid live axle and a raucous V8 like a muscle car, and
styling that could've gone either way. Owner Jimi Day has been a long time
fan of the AMX so when he got the opportunity to construct his own he
pulled out all the stops, went buck-ass wild, and built what is arguably
one of the best AMX's on the planet Earth.
The Unfortunate History of the AMC Pacer
Behind all the jokes and insults, the AMC Pacer is actually a car with a
great deal of history. It began as radical new design from an underdog
company. In an attempt to combat the big, bland, boxy cars from Detroit's
"Big Three," little American Motors Corporation decided to build something
a little different. Their one-eyed car stylist Dick Teague proposed a
small, wide car with big windows and smooth areodynamics. Americans had
never seen anything like it.
This in-depth documentary tells the true story of the Pacer. Unbeknownst
to many, the car persevered through manufacturing setbacks, government
regulations, and many other troubles. Featuring a ton of old car
advertisements and rare footage of AMC's factory, the film helps paint a
picture of the Pacer's world. Director Joe Ligo sits down with AMC stylist
Vincent Geraci, author Patrick Foster, and television personalities John
Davis and Pat Goss from PBS's MotorWeek.
