Re: Another source for early Hemi parts gone

The website is still up, ( www.pawinc.com ) but all you get is a page with their logo on it and all the links to other sections of the site are dead. :(

Re: Compression Problems 426 Hemi

Just checked the compression on my 426 Hemi. Drivers side each cylinder is about 150. The passenger side each cylinder is 115. Big difference especially since the engine has just been done and has less than 100 miles on it. Any suggestions on what might be the problem or cause. ---------------- If ...

Re: industrial 331

The short bell industrial block is the same as the short-bell passenger car engine, so any flywheel, flexplate, bellhousing or adapter set-up made for the a regular passenger car block will bolt right up.

It's just a regular 2-speed Powerflight automatic. They were used an all Dodge, DeSoto, Plymouth and Chrysler cars in the early and mid 50's.
