The Chevy small-block 400 is more of a drag-race engine than an endurance engine, but this one has held up fine through repeated floggings. The 400 is topped with a Quadrajet carburetor and, as a result, runs well at off-camber angles. Dan decided it was a pain to check the tranny fluid with the stock dipstick, so he fitted one from a van that's much easier to reach (circled).
