Putting the Muscle back into Classic Cars

Getting the 318 running

January 29, 2022

The motor was pulled down in the engine bay of the Le Baron when we received it so out it came and sent off for machining. Once returned Shane put the motor together, it is fully balanced and blue printed, it is a 318 which is now 30 Thou up, has an ASR Sump with 6.5 Litre capacity, Keith Black pistons, scat rods, windage tray, valve train anti splash tray, 340 Auto Cam, full stud kit and high volume oil pump. It has Indy "x" heads with 1.5 ratio roller rockers and Edelbrock performer intake, which have been port matched. The car also came with Fast injection which, once the motor was in, had to be connected and fine tuned.
