Capper

I have a ’69 Road Runner with a worked 440 hooked to a beefed reverse manual valve body 727 and a 3.90 Sure-Grip 8¾˝ rear. It has a new Legendary black interior to go with the Viper red paint. This is primarily a street car that I

Catch Me if You Can

Thrust Forward

I have a 1966 Barracuda that I put a 360 in. I read on a forum that one of the bolts that fastens the cam thrust plate is drilled thru to oil the timing chain. The 1966 Plymouth Factory Service Manual I have doesn’t talk about this that I

Tell Me A Choke

I have a ‘68 Plymouth ‘Cuda I’m wondering what possible reasonsthere are for my engine running way better in warm weather (68° F and up) and crappy when it’s cold out (45° F in the morning).The engine is bone stock except I’m running a
