There is a bit going on realcrazy
440 on the right is a 11.5-1 10.90 engine that has been rebuilt and is going back in my sons Valiant, we did have the 547 (middle) in it for a year of fun and getting a 9.99@135 pass in thumbs
Engine in the Barracuda is a 528 roller cam (10.10@135) thing that has crapped a lifter and cam so the 547 in the middle is getting bearings and all the top end off the 528 then going into the Barracuda.
The 528 will then get freshened and I will have to make a choice between roller again or flat tappet.
Mocked up Max Wedge is a 67 HP 440 .030 block that I just scored for $50, about $40 usd .
The bonus of all this is I get to spend a lot of time in the shed with my son, priceless up

1963 Plymouth Max Wedge
1971 Barracuda

You don't have to go whacko to run a roller cam. Something with .660 to .700 lift and they are phenomenal in power and reliability. Looks great! Keep crackin'! up
