  • Beating on my 1983 Dodge truck. . .

    Click on the picture for video. . . Sorry for the confusion. Way to jump in with something, eh?

    Factory 318 4bbl, 727, 2WD shortbox. Optional factory rust package. I had a shop install valves from a 360 in the 318 heads and take .040" off. I knocked in new cam bearings and installed a Summit RV cam and lifters. It's not super fast, but I'm guessing she's stouter than she was in 1983.

    Thanks for looking,

    "factory rust package" must ate the whole truck.... or did you paint it camouflage?
    Doing it all wrong since 1966

      If you click on the picture it is a video. Go figure!
      Solutions are often obvious once you get the questions right.

        sounds good, looks like a neat old truck there is a 3/4 ton that runs low 14's with a mild 440, he was making 10 or 15 passes every friday night at the local test and tune a few years back
