Re: 1955 desoto 291

You'd still have the risk of loss in shipment, but..check with Gary at Quality Engineered Components. May be a bit cheaper & if originality isn't a problem he can change out the hub to take a modern fan.

Re: Early Hemi Identification

Dodge block Hemis & Polys were used in smaller trucks, but as far as I know only Chrysler Truck version hemis were used in big trucks, not Chr Polys.

Re: Blown Early Hemi Makes 670 Horsepower

OK, reads like an old article from back when parts were hard to find, guess he's used to SB Chevys! Wonder how you convert a 354 to 392? :o Put a 392 crank in a 354 block, it's been done before. I can't see where there's any advantage unless you have a bad 392 block and can't find another one and j...

Re: Blown Early Hemi Makes 670 Horsepower

Wonder how old the article is. Should someone tell him the 340 HV pump is only 3.5% increase over stock? The article was dated Feb 14, 2013, so my assumption is it's pretty new. But I don't know for sure. OK, reads like an old article from back when parts were hard to find, guess he's used to SB Ch...

Re: DeSoto Adventurer II Should Have Been Production

In '54 the Corvette was a I-6 power slug. Ford also had a Euro look sports car prototype that was Y Block powered. Wonder what could have been if they could have made these cars.

Re: NEW MEMBER / OLD HEMI

If you have a filtered air inlet up top you should rig up a PCV valve in the tube, unless it's so low, close to the oil that it'd suck oil. If so use that for the inlet & put the PCV up top.

Re: pistons and cam selection

On a 392 the C/R is good, even if it's a little lower than advertised, so the cast replacement pistons are fine. If I had a low deck Dodge or DeSoto with low C/R it would be an intirely diffrent matter. a 241 with nominal 7-7.1:1 measured out @ 6.19. :o Custom forged to what you need on something li...
