    Line lock- on rear brakes?

    A bud told me he was putting his line-lock on his rear brakes. I said that's not going to work but he explained that it actually works better. You hit the switch without brakes applied and then you will only have front brakes which you can pedal on an off if/as needed during burn-out. Finish...

    Racing Insurance and roll cage?

    I'm sure this has been discussed many times here before but my searches didn't yield anything, plus things change. Let me first tell how this came up again with me.. While building my 68 charger (with an insurable, street legal "roll bar"), I did a good bit of researching on how I could best out...

    stock 440 shift light setting?

    I'm running a fairly stock 440 in my 68 charger, headers, 750 brawler carb, 727 trans w/shift kit, 3.91 gears, 30.5" tires. Not sure about the comp ratio on the pistons. It is a mystery motor that I found and nobody knew the history on it. I didn't take the heads or intake off but replaced the...

    kill switch w/alternator questions

    On my 440 street/strip charger I have a kill switch on my tail panel which kills the battery connection, but as I knew already the alternator keeps the motor running. I think I've heard if I disconnect the wires to the alternator the motor will then quit when the kill switch is turned off. My...

    shorty header spark plugs?

    I need some spark plugs and just installed some summit headers on my 440 in my 68 charger and worried I'll have trouble with clearance, installing the plugs and wire boots. I also just installed a 1970 electronic ignition mod. Would the shorty header plugs be a good idea? Any reasons not to use...

    where to get slim front street/strip tires?

    I have some 15x6 rims and have been looking at 205-75-15R-@27"tall tires for my 68 charger after thinking the ones on my trailer that size look about right. There seems to be not many available that aren't for trailers or have they have low speed rating. I'd like radials for sure. Any help...

    mini starter for 440?

    Is this what I want for my 440 to give me more room for headers and easier install and removal.? And is this a good place to buy one? https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/dodge,1994,dakota,5.2l+v8,1087589,electrical,starter+motor,4152

    switching to electric fuel pump question

    When you remove the stock mechanical pump I assume you remove the shaft/pin that it operates off of also, and removing it doesn't make you loose oil psi or anything bad right?

    harness attachment?

    What are the pros and cons or differences between attaching the upper shoulder harness to the crossbar behind the seat with a bolt and welded tab, or just loop the belts around the bar? And while talking about harnesses, what's a good safe harness without killing my wallet?, for a 11sec car.

    Street/strip legal racing harness/seat belts?

    Are there any racing shoulder harness kits that are also street legal? Or is the only way to be street legal is to leave the stock belts in for streeting and then also have a 5pt shoulder belt set to be legal and safer for strip racing?

    which alternator?

    I see that summit sells these 1 wire alternators which seems like might be a good way to go for me. I'd like some opinions/schooling on what I should get. My car will be slowly street driven very little (maybe 200 miles a year) and strip raced a few times per year. I'm not going to run any...

    Where to put trailer tie down hoops?

    Looking for ideas on how/where to put some type of loops/hoops under the front of my 68 charger to hold it to the trailer. I guess I will just use some saddle straps around the rear axle housing., but can't think of a good way to hold the front. I hate to add even a small amount of weight to it...

    Is this a steel crank?

    I'll save it if it is steel but taking it to the scrap metal yard if not. Would there be a good reason to save a used cast crank?

I was looking at a CME 522ci/550hp stroker that said "not recommended for a locking converter". Why? Sry for my ignorance, I always ran manual trans, need schooling on these...
