possable misinformation on casting block ID # dodge hemi

Post by cudatoo » Sat May 08, 2004 11:23 pm

:-? I have (2) two old Dodge hemi's both marked VT 344 by all info I can find on the web Vt 344 is sopposed to be a 54 Dodge 270 truck eng. The head casting's are 241 casting's and the piston sizes are 3 7/16 ,this meaning of course these are 241's not 270 as the information is telling us. Just a note; the only way to tell is the bore in my case any way.

Hope this help's Thank's

My listing shows the VT344 as a 241 in hemi or a 259 in a poly. The numbers for a 270 start at VT346.

Early hemi to late sb Mopar trans adapters. Precision billet parts for early hemis.
