Since I don't really know too much about my Mopar 440, I spent a little time in the university library looking for information. Lucky for me they have shop manuals going back to 1940! I found basically everything I needed except for the cam specs. An interesting note is that this engine is rated at 195HP@3600RPM's (
) but has a torque rating of 320@2000RPM's.
Also, when I was looking at valve lift, all they had was for the 440 High Performance engine, which I'm pretty sure mine is not!!
(well, at least it isn't yet
So, if anyone knows what the stock cam was in a 1978 Chrysler 440, leave me a message or send me an e-mail. It's not going to be very big as this was smack in the middle of the whole emissions era. Any recommendations on a cam?
