Intake up date.
Looks like the intake on my 318 is a 69 340.
I looked up the casting numbers
Going to look for some numbers on the heads tomorrow.

look at the numbers on the block, too. A 340 would be a way cool engine to have. I am guessing you already did that... Ah, the stuff dreams are made of.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Thatís the one thing about Mopars, Skip.
They stamp the engine size right on the side of the block. No guessing needed. 318... The question is what heads does it have.
Thatís todayís research project.

both 340 and 360 heads will drop your compression.
If you`r after better performance I`d use 360 size valves in ported 318 heads.

I`ve owned a bone stock `69 318 Belvedere 3sp manual. 1 barrel Carter. Reliable as heck and burned rubber ,no sweat.

Not after more performance dutch.
Just looking at what may have been done to this motor.
My Aunt that spent her entire working career at Dodge main had a 69 Coronet with a 318 2 barrel in it.
It was a quick car.
I found the head numbers but can't make out the first digit.
Should be a 7 digit number.

Looks like a 4 to me, looks like the number is 4027593, which according to the link below is 4027593 Ė 1977-1984, 318 LA-series small-block, 1.78/1.50 valves.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Not seeing where you are seeing the 593 snopro.
Looks like Unreadable number-8-9-4-6-0-7 to me. Or am i reading it up side down and backwards???? I believe you are right about it being 318 heads. Make sense that someone would just find a factory 4 barrel intake to use.

Going to be 90 with thunder showers here tomorrow, so I got out to the shop again this evening.
Started to work on the PS door fitment. It has the same issue the DS door had.
Forget to take any pics till the end. Its a bit better now but still needs work.
These doors have very little adjustment built into them. I guess Mopars are just built that good.
Next I tacked on the rear gravel shield. This will get fully welded then molded in.
I threw the bumper on because I'm tired of tripping over it.
That's all for tonight.Thanks for stopping by...
