440 SIXPACK STROKER


Hello everyone, I just wanted to share a few pics of my new motor, a high compression stroked out 440 sixpack built by none other than Bob “The Man” Karakashian aka Mr. 6pk and his faithful sidekick/daughter Kim. I’m excited beyond belief. Mr. 6pk did an outstanding job and exceeded my hopes and expectations! He always kept my best interest in mind, answered all of my questions, and discussed every aspect of the build with me. A true Mopar guy, Racer, and Friend. You’re one in a million Bob, thank you!

I’ll do my very best to keep everyone posted.

Re: 440 SIXPACK STROKER


Hello,
 
I'm happy to report I reached another milestone yesterday, I started the car up for the second time and it went well. The oil pressure and engine temp was good, and no leaks anywhere. Also, I drove the Bee up and down the street but I did have a couple of issues that I need to work on, the biggest issue being my charging system is not working right, so I'll work on that next.
 
But she sounds oh so nice! It feels so good to get my car off the jack stands and out in the drive way for a bit. Parked in the garage, it looks like it sits low like a low rider I'm so used to seeing it up on stands.
 
I have a video but I was unable to post it...the error message said it was to large.
 
A special thanks to Bob K. for keeping me on focused and on point from the tranny and torque converter selection to the engine installation and strat up process!

Please refer to the A12 registry under the FAST forum/thread for recent pics of the engine. I'd post them here but I haven't cracked the code, LoL.
 
Thanks, Juan.

Thanks. My goal is mid 11's. Although, I have a lot to learn before I hit that goal.

Dave, do you think you can squeeze out a 11.50 in the 68 Hemi RR you might be driving in the pure stocks?

Will you be driving a car at the June race?

Re: 440 SIXPACK STROKER


Howdy,

I started the car up for the 4th time this weekend, and I actually drove the Bee around the neighborhood and smoked the tires a little! I had a couple folks honking at me. I think the charging issue is fixed; I had the field wire from the engine harness connected to the ground not the field connector on the back of the alternator.

However, a couple other issues came up as I was driving it.

-the engine temp climbed to over 200 degrees-I think the radiator hoses maybe collapsing on me
-the car won’t start up after I’ve had it running for awhile
-the exhaust is bumping against the drive shaft loop causing a rattle
-the throttle linkage sticks every once in awhile-I have to use my foot to lift the gas pedal

But on the road the car feels like a rocket…I mean smoke the tires at anytime, the best part is sitting in the car while I’m coasting down the road. I can hear a deep rumble from inside the car…it reminds me of the sound from the CH-47 Chinook helicopters I use to ride in from my Army days…sounds like a turbine engine…must be all that compression, I love it!

Thanks, Juan. Below is a video from the start up.

Re: 440 SIXPACK STROKER


That is sweet juan. I cant wait to put my bee together.
Id definitely be scared about the sticking issue
I hope its not at WOT . Check for binding
On the six pack linkage. Gaskets and throttle blades, etc.
Im sure youll work past the Bugs, the exhaust is always
Fun to tweak. Maybe itll straighten out after some burnouts.
Hard starting, Ill bet youre peeing fuel down the carbs
After it sits. Check your float levels, better a little low now since youre on street. Better look at thAt fast . Dont
Want to Wash away the cylinder walls.

You can crank the float levels up higher when youre at the track.

Is the car overheating ?
200 degrees , wheres your timing
Initial / total .. ? Etc.
Do you have an a/f gage ?
What uou usin for fuel ? Forgot youre an auto..
Is your kickdown appropriately adjusted ?
Got a 69 FS manual ?
