Question about Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Hello my problem is this. I have a 69 440 40degree over bore forged flat top pistons. Heads are Int 2.08" Exh 1.75 3-angle cut. Cam 509" 292 duration. Every time I do a burn out oil leaks from the front of my oil pan. I just installed a new windage tray and new gaskets and still I have this problem. I have run this motor since 1997 and have always used the same evacuation system. The problem showed up around 2005 and continues to this day. I used to run 11:90's @ 114mph now 12:90's @ 107mph. Head gaskets are new as well. Motor does not smoke or burn oil or foul plugs. Can you help me find an answer to this problem?

use high octane gas and a high output coil, and straight through exhaust with no muffler, add a high performance cam, bore out the cylinders as big as possible, get the heads ported and polished, use dome pistons, etc etc.

IF YOU REPLACED THE HEADS WITH REBUILT/NEW HEADS:
A side effect of increasing compression when you bolt on fresh heads, is broken piston rings. It's beneficial to replace the rings & bearings and at least remove the ring ridge at the top of the cylinder wall if not re-bore when replacing heads due to the higher compression that will cause.


If you just put on a set of used heads.

There's also the chance that the new headgaskets didn't seal completely, (usually due to a problem with surface prep or a warped head/block), but if you've got high mileage, it's usually the rings.

A set of rings can be replaced, but you'll want to make sure they haven't cut into the bore so much as to cause blow-by once new rings are installed. Eliminating the ridge by carefully using a ridge reamer at the top of the cylinder to prevent breakage of the top ring from impact.
Hone the cylinder walls gently & reinstall pistons & new rings!
Good luck.

This is not so much a problem, but i need an old school engine gurus help. I am about to do a rebuild on my 318. I know what the specs say for the proper cam and lifters setup. But i was wondering what...


If you want 300hp out of your 318 this will get you there: Bowl port the heads and have the valves back-cut 30*, Edelbrock RPM intake(Airgap is more money and the rpm and rpm airgap are basicly the same), Any 600cfm carb, Comp 20-309-4, Headers and dual exhaust. This combo will give you great bottom end and will make 300hp.

The cam, intake and carb alone will not get you there, you need more head flow. So bowl port the heads, or install some 360 heads. good day ! or is this a bit much !!
the 1973 Mopar 318 has 150 hp at 3,600 rpm.
