kpgsx 1974 Plymouth Duster 360 roller cam LA360 crankup
After acquiring my 74' Duster in Feb. 2010 literally just a Roller with
boxes and coffee cans full of bolts and parts and a transmission and
drivesahft in the trunk, I removed the numbers matching 360, and built a
89' Roller Cam LA 360, I installed the engine in Sept. 2010. After
running into all sorts of missing accessory brackets, and transmission
brackets, I finally got all the crap worked out and primed the Edelbrock
1406 EC 600. It fired right off and I set the initial timing, checked the
idle oil pressure and looked it over for leaks,...Then I adjusted the
mixture screws, tightened a Exhaust
manifold bolt that was leaking coolant, and cranked it up for this video.,
The sound is kinda distorted due to being in my single car garage and the
resonance...but it sounds healthy, has good pressure, and doesnt leak
anything else, so I am heading in the right direction at least.
Ahh Progress. :)
Shane O'Sullivan VC Valiant V8 Chrysler 408 Stroker 10.25 PB Perth Motorplex Fast Friday 11.02.2011
It was great to see Westside Drag Racing Association Club President Shane
O'Sullivan out running a new personal best time of 10.25 at the Perth
Motorplex Fast Friday 11.02.2011, which was later followed by another 10.23
The Club Prez has been away working hard on offshore oil rigs, and it was
good to see him back at the track burning out and doing what he
loves...high speed drag racing!!
Shane's 408 cubed retro Valiant is Mopar powered, and has had EFi fitted.
Shane's PB also came about with the help from a set of custom Exhaust pipes manufactured by Dragtech
Fabrication (Rick Johns) which were fitted just prior to his new best time.
Shane reports that the time may not stand for too long however, with a new
intake manifold on the way.
Well done to all the team and people who have helped out.
