Preston Herrick's "Blown" 440 Duster - Initial fire-up
Highlights from initial fire-up. Assembled another '70 440 shortblock with
lower compression (8.5:1) Speed Pro forged pistons. Topped off with 6-71 Supercharger and dual 750 Edelbrocks.
Waiting for electric pusher fan to arrive - no space for anything between
radiator and blower drive.
Can already tell this will be a different beast from the NA 440 it

Building A 440 Six Pack [S2 Ep.5-3]
When it comes to classic hot-rod components, nothing gets people going like
a multi-carb setup. And the king amount these is the Tri-power. Long
admired for their stellar performance and macho attitude, the tri-power has
become a hard thing to find. So why find one? Why not build your own? Today
on GEARZ, Stacey walks you through the process of building your own
tri-power out of old derelict parts. After that, Stacey pulls out the big
Mopar guns and shows what it takes to put together a six-pack. If
multi-carbs are your deal... you?re gonna love this show! Then Stacey gets
down and dirty and shows you how to build some simple, ultra strong axle
dollys by using some old scrap metal like the kind laying around YOUR
garage. Who said gearheads aren't into recycling?

Beating on a Dodge 440 big block truck fail
my friends 'smiley truck' taking a friend girl for a drive. i figured it
would do her some good but ended up breaking in an awesome way when it hit
a pothole. well, i guess it was exciting anyway.
The other truck is a 1951 ford f100 on a 1991 dakota frame.
Dodge Challenger Engine Build
This is my 73 Dodge Challenger, I need to build an engine for it so watch
me go from building diesel engines to trying my hand at a 440 build,
440 Camshaft drive FAIL!!!
So our rebuilt 440 with only 300 miles (at most) on it, developed a problem
when stopping at a traffic light, it wouldn't idle. It had lost 20 deg. of
ignition timing, so we twisted the distributor, and it ran well again. Then
a short time later it did the same thing again, another 20 deg. of timing
lost. We couldn't twist the distributor far enough, so had to pull and
adjust the drive gear, to get it firing at the right time, but this time it
wouldn't run quite right, and lost top end power.
We tried everything a group of us could think of, but in the end pulled off
the timing cover, to discover that the single bolt drive with 1 locating
pin had suffered a major failure! We hope no valves are bent, but are still
determining that, 2 chrome moly pushrods are bent, the timing sprocket is
trashed, and we are NOT Amused!!! These were all brand new name brand
parts, so why did they fail???
We will be going with a 3 bolt camshaft sprocket retainer this time!
1967 Plymouth Fury wagon with Crossram Sonoramic Longram induction on a 440 ci engine. Wild
Here is one of my first overall build up projects, Every nut and bolt came
out of this car over a 5yr period. I figured that since I was building a
weird car (at that time in 1994 no one was in to station wagons except me I
think) That I should have a wild and weird engine compartment, What you
see is a factory Chrysler intake with a few modern tweaks and upgrades ,
such as billet throttle linkage, carbon fiber air cleaner tops, Indy car
suspension mount for an engine torque rod. It was a great and fun car that
won many awards and was featured in several national magazines, it was even
on the cover of Mopar Collectors Guide! looking back now it seems funny,
I sold a 1972 340 Challenger Rallye car to build the wagon , That E body
is now worth a whole bunch more money than when I sold it. Even so, if
I had it all to do over again I wouldn't have changed a thing, I had so
much fun with the big wagon that it wouldnt have compared with just a
"plain" O'l E body
Triple Black Attack: 1970 440 6-Pack 'Cuda - /BIG MUSCLE
Each and every muscle car enthusiast has that one experience that has
helped define the way in which they view the automobile. For Northern
California's John Cross that experience came by way of riding in the back
of his cousins 1970 440 6-Pack Plymouth 'Cuda when he was a kid. It was a
car that provided him with memories, stories and of course, a goal - that
being, to one day own the very car which got his engine running all those
years ago. It's now 2012, 42 years after that first faithful ride in the
very 'Cuda you're about to see. This time however it resides in John's
garage, not his cousins, which can mean only one thing... Sometimes dreams
do come true.
