Hello I am planning on replacing my outer and inner tie rod endings as well as my upper and lower ball joints. I have a 1972 Plymouth Valiant. Does anyone by any chance know the torque specs? and if anyone has advice of any kind that would be help full.

Cars I Almost Bought

By · Comments Comments Off on Cars I Almost Bought
The one that got away; there are always those cars that for whatever reason we considered, then dismissed. Sometimes we look back on those near misses and thank our lucky stars. Other times that hindsight results in feelings of regret.

I regret passing on the pristine AAR back in 1984, I didn't like the Deep Burnt Orange color so I couldn't justify spending $3500 on it.

I'm sad about the '70 Green Go convertible Superbee I didn't buy because it had a little rust on the quarterpanels.

I don't mind having passed on the '73 318 green Charger with a green interior, or the giant, gold Imperial with a gold interior although it did have a 440.

In the mid 90s I passed on a 4.0 Ford Ranger and a nice 4WD Comanche in favor of a more pedestrian 2.9L 2WD Ranger, the first and only vehicle I've had to take to the shop because of a lightening strike.

I regret buying a Plymouth Acclaim instead of a Stealth back in '91. Not that the Acclaim was a bad car, it wasn't even my first 4 door, but it had to be one of the most boring cars I've ever owned.

The last vehicle I regret not purchasing was a last year LHS, I bought a used Dakota instead because the deal was just too good to pass up.

400 Engine Recommendations

By · Comments Comments Off on 400 Engine Recommendations
Hi guys,

I just purchased a 440 RB engine. The casting number is 3698830 400 5.

It has been rebuilt and now has a 30 over bore. I'm planning on putting this into a 1972 Plymouth Duster which was modded for a big block with a 727 trans.

Other then that I do not know to much about this engine and I'm trying to find details but online searches aren't providing much results.

I've read multiple sites that said RB engines all have cast cranks? But then I read other sources saying that 418-440 have forged steel cranks? Anyone know which it is?

I'm also looking to perform a few minor upgrades to get a few more ponies out of it. Any recommendations?

The heads are off of it atm, only thing done is core, crank, cam and pistons.

While its open I have a chance to do some changes to it. Was thinking of replacing the Cam and get some good heads for it etc... any recommendations?

Converting over to power breaks

By · Comments Comments Off on Converting over to power breaks
I'm looking to convert manual brakes to power brakes do I need new brake lines? I've already converted the front disc brakes and I also want to convert the back to disc brakes. I have an 8 3/4 posi rear, all wheels are small bolt pattern. I was also wondering if someone can post a link to a brake system that I can use for a 1970 Dodge Dart It had a six cylinder and that has been changed to a 318. Thanks guys. oh also i have an adjustable portion valve is that ok to use? Or do I need an original.

What are User Defined Parameters?
If you have information on parameters (Switches, Scalars, and/or Tables) that we do not have defined currently in VCM Editor, you can now add them yourself and edit them right in VCM Editor immediately. All you need to do is define the parameters using TunerPro, save the TunerPro definition, and import the TunerPro definition right into the User Defined Parameters feature in VCM Editor. If you would like parameters added to VCM Editor permanently, you can still email support requesting they be added. Please Note: Not all controllers supported by VCM Suite support User Defined Parameters, please email Support for more information.

How do I get to use the User Defined Parameters feature?
The User Defined Parameters feature can be purchased by logging into your customer page and purchasing the one-time feature unlock for $99.99. After you purchase, you will be provided with a new application key. Once you receive the application key, simply enter it into VCM Suite and User Defined Parameters will be available for you to use.

How do I define my own parameters for VCM Editor?
If you have the necessary information on a parameter that you would like to define yourself, you can define and import your own parameters by doing the following:
Define the Parameter(s) using TunerPro (To download TunerPro, visit: Download TunerPro)
Save your .XDF file with the parameters you wish to import
Open your .HPT file in VCM Editor
Go to Edit -> User Defined Parameters
Open the XDF File and your parameters will be imported into VCM Editor for editing.

Please see the example TunerPro .XDF file posted below for an example of each parameter type:

What are the "Allowed Addresses" in the User Defined Parameters window?
The allowed addresses are address ranges that you are allowed to define parameters in. If you try to define a parameter outside these ranges, they will not import and you will not allowed to edit them.
