Mopar To Ya
Mopar Performance Parts has owners of Chrysler, Plymouth, and Dodge products covered, with more than 280,000 parts and accessories, though many are for late-models. Chrome-plated differential covers, HEMI Orange engine paint, eight correct OEM enamel paint colors, restoration decals, small-block camshaft kits, and pinion snubbers are just some parts that earlier Mopar fans can use.
Or how about the big-block cast aluminum polished valve covers (shown here), available for 383 and 440ci engines? Small-block covers are also available. Any Mopar fan could use Direct Connection logo fender covers, ideal for preventing scratches or dings while wrenching in the engine compartment. For more information, visit www.mopar.com.
Remember the ’65 Corvette Grand Sport with that wild Weber DCOE sidedraft carburetion system with those criss-crossed runners and eight-chrome velocity stacks? There’s never been a wilder-looking small-block Chevrolet induction system before or since, and Jim Inglese is producing them again. Each unit is custom-built to match the engine it’s going on, and what you see here is exactly the way it comes out of the box, fully assembled and ready to install.
Included is the complete fuel harness, a low-pressure fuel regulator with -AN fittings, stainless liquid-filled pressure gauge, Fel-Pro intake gasket set, stainless intake bolts, synchrometer, and a step-by-step installation and setup manual. Customizing options such as polished manifolds, chrome plating, custom-painted carburetors, and air cleaner choices are available, and can be viewed online. For more information, contact Jim Inglese Weber Carburetion at (203) 623-0659 or www.jiminglese.com.
Pump It Up
Performance Automatic has added two new Pro Pumps to their extensive line of transmissions and components. With the ever-growing popularity of the Ford AOD and 4R70W transmissions, the company felt the need to release its AOD Pro Pump (PN PA53436) and the 4R70W Pro Pump (PN PA45436) to the public.
Starting with the best cores, Performance Automatic checks for proper pump bushing centerline. The pump gear pocket is examined for correct depth and the pump gears are sized to Performance Automatic specs. The stator housing is re-conditioned and machined for a thrust bearing. This eliminates the plastic washer that often fails due to excessive rpm.
Modified stator rings are installed as well as a new pump O-ring and gasket. This Pro Pump is a direct replacement part complete with roller bearing suitable for any rebuild.
The AOD Pro Pump fits all AOD transmissions up to 1993 and the P AODE/4R70W Pro Pump fits all AODE and 4R70W transmissions from 1994-2004. For more information, visit Performance Automatic at www.performanceautomatic.com.
