The 340 was pulled from the ‘Cuda’s nose and put on a stand for evaluation. It looked OK on the top side, but years of leaks and heat cycling really took a toll on everything below the valve covers.

The rear plugs were seeping a bit.

The distributor gasket was leaking as well.

The exhaust manifolds were correct, but looked pretty rough. The heat shield was surprisingly complete, but also kind of crisp.


Motor mounts were a bit greasy.
