Re: Off topic 71 Plymouth



Probably not a 340, if its "matching numbers"...unless it's a Duster.....it'll be a 318 and, again, not a Poly (wide block, which is misnomer by the way) if it's a numbers car.

It is a 318 org 230 hp made in Windsor, he had it bored.40 over (sounds like a lot), high rise carb, cam of some sort, it's a race car he says.  He thinks is poly but he says it was the stock motor, he said the oil filter runs the same direction as the block, like a starter sits, if that helps.  Weird sounding I know.  But this car is out of my knowledge base. He also said it's a number matching car.  He took this thing apart 15 years ago, and is now trying to put it together again.

If it is the original V-8 1971 Valiant, then it is a 318 or 340, both LA engines. You'll have to find out which it is. 340 seems probable.

If someone put a Poly 318 (A engine) in the Valiant that's very cool, though.

Thanks,
