Dodge Shelby Charger Rally Video
We rally a 86' Shelby Charger turbo that
we bought for 5 hay bails. This is the *first gen* charger before we
jumped it, cut the roof off, removed all the windows and re-painted it. Go

This $700 clunker was in the mood for a rustoleum paint job, so I gave it

Blueprint 103 - Connecting Rods
Connecting rods are the crux of the engine. They're responsible for
carrying the force of the explosions that occur in the combustion chamber
and using it to turn the crankshaft. Oil clearance specifications of the
"big end" and "small end" are crucial to maintaining consistent oil
In this video we take 3 measurements:
Rod Journal (also called Crank Pin) Diameters
"Big End" Bore diameter
Using the Journal diameters and the "Big End" Bores, you can calculate your
oil clearances of each bearing. The process is illustrated here. Anyone
rebuilding an engine who doesn't know its history should check all of these
clearances whether or not they're re-using the rods. If the crank,
bearings or connecting rods are going to be replaced, it's imperative that
you measure the new parts as well to ensure they're in spec.
1987 Dodge Daytona Shelby Z Cruise
I never seemed to have the opportunity to really give her gas in this. I
never got above about 60% throttle, and didn't get close to the red line.
Too much traffic. You can clearly hear the Blow off valve. Which, other
than a muffler, is the only mod. on this car.
I hope you enjoy the cruise. I had to edit out parts because I didn't want
to show other peoples tags on here. A while back when I posted the B.O.V.
someone asked me to post a video when she was driving again. So here you
I had an accident back in October. I spun out,(wet road, animal in the
road) and went into a ditch. It didn't hurt the body, but it messed up the
K member (broken in three places). I drove it home without knowing this
after the tow truck pulled me out. Any way, after a friend welded, and
reinforced the K member she's back on the road.
