No I get it. There are folks that have told me the same thing that having the original engine with the car would be great for the future owner one day. But in reality does any future owner really care about a 318? Now if it was a 383/440 then absolutely, but if that was the case, I would have...
Haha! Actually if I had to put a price on it, I was hoping it was worth at least $500 for the combo.
I mean, I get it cause I just did the G3 Hemi as well and 318 ain't the most sought after combo.
But trying to find a running engine and shifting transmission would be hard pressed at...
Right out of my 1968 Dodge Charger.
318 engine with 2 barrel carb
Runs smooth and does not smoke.
88k miles on it. Never rebuilt according to my records.
I have videos on my youtube driving it around.
I pulled it last September and it's sitting on a pallet in the corner of my shop under a...
I run E85 (flexfuel) in my 68 Charger.
I have a 5.7 Hemi swap with fuel injection.
Engine is stock along with injectors.
I do have a return-style electric fuel pump (340 lph) and a custom tune for Ethanol.
Runs fantastic, more power due to more timing compared to pump (93) I was running.
Good luck with the project! I did same in my 68 and it was worth the effort.
Hardest part for me was figuring out the transmission control and getting it to work properly.
But today it starts, drives, and runs fantastic and gets much better gas mileage that my old 2 barrel 318 and 904 auto ever...
Thanks! Got a link to that -6 male fitting with the attached nut?
I appreciate the help. I am looking to get this AC working soon as the temps here (in NC) have started to see 80's to 90's this coming week!
Thanks. Question, what did you do for the pressure switch and wiring (if you added them)?
I have the hotwireauto wiring harness and the only wires I have are to the compressor itself. The harness has a blue trigger wire that when 12v is applied, it turns the compressor on.
I have considered...
Quick check in.
Car is doing great and running fantastic on E85! Love it!
Now it's getting warmer here and I need to fix the AC cooling system.
I have the G3 Hemi AC compressor that came out of the 2006 Charger on the engine now. I also have the condensor. However I need to make up new...
