China has second-most billionaires on Forbes' global rich list
June 20, 2013
Twenty-six Chinese nationals joined Forbes magazine’s recently published global rich list this year, bringing the country's total number of billionaires on the list to 122. The number of global billionaires hit a record 1,426 in 2013, with Mexican telecommunications mogul Carlos Slim claiming the top spot once again and Bill Gates, Amancio Ortega, Warren Buffet and Larry Ellison nabbing the next four spots on the list. The number of billionaires from the mainland has recovered from last year, when it was 96. The US took the lead with the most billionaires in a country at 442, followed by mainland China at 122, Russia at 110 and Germany at 58. Analysts attribute this year’s surge to the pickup in equity and property markets.

I had 67 AMC Rambler Rebel with 290 V8, What type of auto 3 speed tranny did it have? THANKS?
(asked by firstname.lastname@example.org on March 17, 2009)
A: Boy, you got two totally different answers!!
Both are wrong, Borg Warner made the three speed, "Shift Command" transmission for that year.
AMC did go to Chysler's "Torque-Flight" transmissions in 1972.
290 was a valid engine choice in 1966 (the 390 was not) the other engine available was the 343. (answered by a simple man on March 17, 2009)

The new-generation AMC V8 was first introduced in 1966. It is sometimes referred to as the "GEN-2" AMC V-8. All three engine sizes (290, 343, and 390) share the same basic block design — the different displacements are achieved through various bore and stroke combinations. All blocks share the same external measurements and thus can be swapped easily. Contrary to a popular myth, the AMC V8 was not built by Ford or anyone else. They did share some electrical parts (starter and distributor) with Fords, and some models used Motorcraft (Ford) carburetors, but the engine design is totally different. Bore center measurement was kept the same as the GEN-1 AMC V-8 so that boring equipment could be reused. Other than that, this engine is vastly different from the GEN-1 model. The GEN-1 engine is physically the size of a big-block Ford or GM engine, and is sometimes called a "big-block". The GEN-2 is closer to the physical size of US made small-block V-8s except for the bore centers, which are the same as some big-block engines. There are no shared parts between the AMC GEN-1 and GEN-2/3 engines.
The GEN-2 AMC V-8 was first introduced at 290 in³ (4.8 L) in 1966. It was used exclusively in the American model the first year (some reports indicate a few late production Classics had 290s substituted for 287s, but that hasn't been substantiated). The 343 in³ (5.6 L) came out in 1967 and the AMX 390 in³ (6.4 L) arrived in 1968. These engine blocks were unchanged through 1969.
The head used during this time are the so-called rectangle port, named after their exhaust port shape. The 290 heads use smaller valves, 1.787 in (45.4 mm) intake and 1.406 in (35.7 mm) exhaust, in order to prevent problems with the small bore. The 343 and AMX 390 used the same larger valve heads, 2.025 in (51.4 mm) intake and 1.625 in (41.3 mm) exhaust.
The base 290 in³ (4.8 L) 290 produced 200 to 225 hp (149 to 168 kW) with a 2V and 4V carburetor, respectively. It was built from 1966 through 1969. It has a 3.75 in. bore (95.25 mm) and 3.28 in. (83.31 mm) stroke.
The 343 in³ (5.6 L/5622 cc) 343 has a 4.08 in. (103.6 mm) bore and 3.28 in. (83.31 mm) stroke. The basic 343/2V produced 235 hp (175 kW) and was built from 1967 through 1969. Output for the optional 4V carburetor version was 280 hp (209 kW) and 365 ft·lbff (495 N·m) gross. This version had a 10.2:1 compression ratio. (answered by 69 FstBck on July 05, 2006)
A: IIRC it should. AMC was pretty good about stuff like that. any good junk yard should have interchange books that will tell you or you could compare the casting #s on the trannies. (answered by glen t on July 05, 2006)
