Re: JOHN FORCE QUOTE

You mean like when someone has an idea and suddenly it's a FORD idea (like intermittant wipers for example), or when someone paints a Chrysler style HEMI, blue, and calls it a FORD?

HEMI and INDY Collector's Edition DRAG RACER

The September 2014 DRAG RACER magazine has an historical article covering the HEMI from 1951 to present day. Actually a pretty good read; it brought me up to speed on a couple of things that I was vague on. $6.99. On display until September 23/14. Four chapters from pages 24 to 48.

The illustrated HEMI is 417 cubic inches. It's undersquare at 3.950 x 4.250 bore and stroke. 11.3:1 compression. 700 horsepower @ 6500 rpm. 621 ft/lbs torque @ 5200 rpm. Top horsepower of the meet. Nice. I found the undersquare interesting as it reminds me of the 225 Chrysler slant six at 3.40 x 4.1...

Max wedges would have an additional mark of "MP", and if a factory installed block in a lightweight car, the mark of "HC" would also be found. The only max wedges with an "HP" mark would be the 1962 413 MW. In 1964, the "...
