    How to destroy a 440

    I stand corrected. I thought they looked like open chamber heads but when I zoomed in I see you’re right.

    I signed up for Carlisle in December (first time bringing the Charger) but all I got was a confirmation email. Do they send you a packet or something?

    How to destroy a 440

    Those don’t look anything like 440 Source heads. These are my new Stealth heads going on my 440 build.

    1971 Charger Stereo install - two different sized speakers?

    Hi all, I think maybe this has been discussed many times before... if there is already a thread please let me know. Here goes: Short question: Keeping the package tray looking stock... can I mount two 6x9 speakers from the bottom in the back even though the speaker holes are different...

    Just did a compression test - please advise…

    Just turned 60K miles, bone stock short block from 1971. .039 Cometic head gaskets. According to the service manual, the 383-300 stock cam has 260/268 degrees duration.

    Just did a compression test - please advise…

    1971 383, stock bottom end with fresh 452 heads milled .020. I had the plugs out so figured I’d do a compression test. These numbers look good to me but I’ve never tested cylinder pressures on a big block before so wanted to ask ya’lls advice:

    If you own a Dark Bronze Metallic 1971 Charger WP29N1G141820 I have your build sheet

    This was apparently stuck to one of the copies of my build sheet. Not sequential to my car but similar options and also a Y13 Dealer Demonstrator. Send me a picture of your VIN tag if it's your car and I"ll stick it in the mail.

    Sudden electrical spike, burning smell

    Sudden electrical spike, burning smell

    Turns out NAPA had the regulator in stock. Plugged it in and at first seemed to be fixed then the voltage at the battery jumped to almost 18. I went to move my work light and saw sparks behind the alternator. Turns out the green field wire was shorting out. Took this piece out and...

    Sudden electrical spike, burning smell

    makes sense. I cleaned up the ground anyway and started it up. At first it seemed to be okay, showing 13.4 at the battery but then the engine pulled down like it was under a load and voltage spiked up up to 16.8 again. I ordered a new regulator from NAPA for pickup tomorrow. More to follow…

    Sudden electrical spike, burning smell

    Driving my daughter to practice and very suddenly my ammeter spiked all the way past the “C” and we got a slight burning smell. Turned around and came back and my multimeter is showing 13.6 volts at the battery at idle and almost 17 volts at about 2000 rpm. Ammeter drops slightly at idle but...

    Factory repaired head?!?

    Makes sense. Honestly I’m not sure why anyone would spend the effort welding up a 452 head on a motor home and then machining the intake surface flat, since you can get a pair of them for a hundred bucks.

    Factory repaired head?!?

    I pulled a 440 out of a motor home with just over 32k on the odometer, engine is super clean inside… can still see the cross-hatching in the cylinder walls. Pulled the heads and one of the walls between the intake runners has been welded. It appears to be a solid weld. Would this have been...
