Crane Cams Rocker Arm Shafts for Chrysler LA and B/RB V8s

Crane Cams is proud to annouce the release of rocker arm shafts for Chrysler LA and B/RB V8's.  Designed and produced specifically as upgraded parts for the 1964-1991 Chrysler LA V8 and the 1958-1978 Chrysler B/RB V8 families of engines, these shafts are precision machined from heavy wall seamless steel tubing, heat treated and carburized, then centerless ground.  All bolt holes and oil holes are chamfered, reducing the possibility of stress cracking, and promoting oil dispersal.  The heavy wall thickness will also reduce the possibility of distortion in the event that the hold down bolts are excessively torqued. End plugs are also installed.  These are sold as pairs, for one complete engine assembly.

These shafts have standard dimensions for use as replacement parts, and can also be used with the Crane adjustable ductile iron rocker arms (part numbers 69770-16 1.5:1 ratio, and 69771-16 1.6:1 ratio) for the LA engines, and (part numbers 64770-16 1.5:1 ratio, and 64771-16 1.6:1 ratio) for the B/RB engines.

These shafts are included in the Crane roller tip aluminum rocker arm kits (part number 69790-1 1.5:1 ratio, and 69791-1 1.6:1 ratio) for the LA engines, and (part numbers 64790-1 1.5:1 ratio, 64791-1 1.6:1 ratio for standard heads, and 64792-1 1.5:1 ratio, 64793-1 1.6:1 ratio for Stage IV, V, and VI heads) for the B/RB engines.

MSD Introduces Atomic EFI

MSD has led the automotive world in performance ignitions for over 40 years and now we are rewriting another industry standard. Using current aftermarket options to convert a vehicle to EFI can be difficult and time consuming but with the all new Atomic EFI, all that is going to change. Atomic EFI is a throttle body kit designed to update old engines with outdated carburetors to a fuel injection system with all of the modern benefits of EFI.

Atomic EFI was designed for the car guy. It can be installed by anyone with access to basic tools and a car with a 4-barrel carb. No laptop is required and the owner doesn't need to understand how to tune a fuel map because we do all that for them. In fact, we do a lot of the wiring for the user too! Instead of having countless sensors that have to be installed on the engine, we incorporate the TPS, MAP, IAT, and more right in the throttle body so the user never has to worry about them.

The best part of the Atomic EFI system is the returnless fuel feature. MSD uses pulse width modulation technology to control the fuel pump so that you only need one line. This means most users can keep their existing fuel tank pickup and never have to modify the gas tank. A small external Power Controller is required for the fuel pump and fans, but MSD implemented CAN-Bus technology to keep wiring minimized.

The Atomic EFI is scheduled to be on store shelves in January 2012.
