Re: hemi-engine and trans

You need to post the numbers stamped into the pad on the front of engine,up by the distributor to verify exactly what you've got. But verifying exactly what car your engine came out of, even with these numbers will be difficult or impossible. Unlike GM, Chrysler didn't match the engine numbers to a ...

Re: Transmission?

I have acquired a 354 Hemi engine. Going to pick it up this week. It is a non industrial, short bellhousing block truck engine. It has a bellhousing attached with clutch pressure plate and flywheel. So, I have an A230 heavy duty Mopar three speed transmission. Does anyone know if it will bolt to th...

Re: Oil--- What type to use?

I like Shell Rotella-15W40 in all older, non-roller cam equipped engines. It's formulated for heavy-duty diesel engine use, so unlike most motor oils formulated for normal gasoline passenger-car engines, Rotella still contains zinc (ZDDP).

Here's a circa 1952 magazine ad I came

hemi-powered 'Victory air-raid sirens.

Re: 331 Marine Hemi

The factory specs show 8.2 to 1. That's nominal though and assuming the deck height, gasket thickness and cylinder head CC's are right on spec. With normal production tolerances, the actual compression ratio is likely anywhere from a half to a full point lower. mart =================================

Re: Restorer hopes to bring loudest siren to air show

In all the pics I've seen of those hemi-powered Victory air-raid sirens, I've noticed that they all ran dual upturned straight stacks off the manifolds. I guess mufflers on something like an air-raid siren would be truly superfluous! LOL! :D :D

Re: Engine Stand Worthy of a Hemi!

Nice job David! It'll look and work great when it's done! One question - do any of the casters have 'brakes' on them? If not, you might want to swap at least two of them out for a pair with wheels you can lock.

Re: Newbie

The 354 will be *marginally* easier to do and a better fit in an A-body than the 392. The 331-354's have a lower deck height and thus are just a bit narrower and about 40 to 50 lbs. lighter. It's definitely not a "bolt in" deal and will take some serious work, and fabrication skills - but it's do-ab...

Re: New Rockers and assembly for the '92

The video is great, but the sound quality is
AWFUL. Perhaps you should consider re-doing
it with with the background noise from original
sound track removed and then re-dub your
narration so that you can be clearly heard.
