condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Chrysler
model name / number: 340
1970 340 short block, casting date 7/8/69.
This short block is all standard and appears to have never been apart.
Stock 4.040 bore with NO ridge, at all.
Original cast 10.5 pistons and forged steel crankshaft.
Standard Chrysler main and rod bearings, dated 9/69.
All original factory steel freeze plugs with original paint, none rust through.
Original timing cover and balancer. Rubber in balancer looks good. Timing cover looks amazing.
I've had this short block for decades on the shelf, as did the last two owners of it.
It has spent the majority of its life on the shelf.
Engine serial # FW340P2980 0574 cast and assembled at Windsor Ontario Plant. Assembled on 9/24/70
Last 8 of vin on oil pan rail 0R126994 / 1970, Windsor Plant, serial# of vehicle
I pull the center main cap and one rod cap to measure and look at the crank, looked good.
The cylinders aren't rusty, just dirty.
I wouldn't be surprised if cleaned and honed, rings, bearings, and a crank polish could bring this back to life.
If it needed bored, it wouldn't be more than .020.

Also available with purchase of short block is a pair of rebuilt 894 X heads. [NOT AVAILABLE SEPARATLY].
Also available is these years factory iron intake manifolds, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72. [NOT AVAILABLE SEPARATLY].
Also available are a pair of 68-70 HP exhaust manifolds. [NOT AVAILABLE SEPARATLY].
