    8-3/4 Rear Axle Bearings

    The best way I've found to grease the rear bearings once you've cleaned them out and blown them dry is to use a pencil point tip on your grease gun and go around the big end of the the taper and pump em full.

    Starter too close to header?

    I had the same problem when I put a 11 inch clutch and bell housing in my charger. RobMC makes a great compact starter that solved my problems. You can loosen 2 bolts on it and rotate the solenoid and field assembly to any position to give clearance to your headers.

    Does this torque chain look ok???

    I like the turn buckle design. Made mine similar except I bolted a plate to the front of the block instead of the back of the water pump and used a sway bar link rod bushings on the bottom to provide a little cushion. It's a 512 stroker motor with tons of torque and a manual transmission that...

    Kick Down or Not?

    MoparMur knows what he's talking about. I've overhauled a few hundred automatics at the dealership. They all work basically the same. Some use vacuum modulator and kick down linkage to determine engine load others just a throttle linkage but either way it needs to be hooked up and adjusted...

    Trick Flow 240s vs Bruce Toth ported heads

    Sorry, I said Hughes. I meant Harland Sharp. A bit pricey but worth it.

    Trick Flow 240s vs Bruce Toth ported heads

    I built a 512 stroker for my 70 charger with a comp roller cam of similar duration and an edelbrock performer rpm and a quick flow 950 double pumper. I really the trick flow 240 heads. It is still pulling hard at 6000 rpm which means good flow. I went with the Hughes roller rockers. Be careful...

    Grinding Clearances for rod bolts on stroker 400

    I used a couple of small yet very strong magnets placed next to where I was grinding and they worked great. Still re washed with solvent and compressed air and brushes. I like the shop vac idea too.

    At a loss with my Drivetrain Vibration

    I know this is a B body and not an E but I had a 70 Barracuda with a drive shaft vibe I was chasing. One day I stood it up and I heard something clunk inside of it. I flipped it over and heard it clunk again. So the drives haft shop cut it open and inside was another piece of tubing with a...

    At a loss with my Drivetrain Vibration

    Oh, and only use Spicer or neapco U joints. They are the only ones I get consistant balance runs with. Others have too much play in them.

    At a loss with my Drivetrain Vibration

    Could be out of phase. To check it get a cheap angle meter with a little magnet on it. Put the car on jack stands under rear-end and outboard end of front A frames by the ball joints. Turn the drive shaft to where the cross of the u joint on the pinion flange is straight up and down. Stick the...

    Pure oxygen pump that pumps from a oxygen tank to thr supercharger

    If you add just oxygen to the combustion chamber it will get so hot you'll melt pistons AND you will loose a lot of power because the expansion of the oxygen in the chamber as it burns is not much. With nitrogen also in the chamber the heated nitrogen expands WAY more than the oxygen. The...

    What did I blow up in my 727?

    It's either the forward clutch or the front planetary gear carrier or forward ring gear. Chrysler calls it the front annuls gear but same thing.

    third member gasket

    Taper goes toward the pinion gear. Notice the radius where the gear meets the shaft.

    TF 727 Growls in low - Solved!

    There are are 2 sets of planetary gears in your 727. Both sets are used in 1st. Only the front set is used in 2nd. Sounds like there's a problem with the rear planetary gears, rear ring gear and the rear half of the common sun gear. The rest gear set is ALSO used in reverse without the front...

    Block strength

    As with any higher HP big block Mopar the girdle is great advice. I also went with aluminum billet main caps, forged Pistons and rods. Opening up the oil holes to the main bearings is a good idea too. The bottom end is the weak spot so beef it up.
