Re: PAW power steering bracet HEM-5410

I was going through some old pictures of the items I have sold on eBay . I came across one of the bracket. Will email it to you if you think it will help. I think it could duplicated it if you really needed one by just looking at the photo & the way it bolts to the block. Buddy

Re: Hemi History - 331-A11 Hemi-powered Kurtis Indy Roadster

I am assuming the heads used were traditional earliest hemi heads with the smaller round exhaust ports since it was 1952/53, and not having the water crossover ports in the front. Guess they DO make some power :o . Or maybe Chrysler was experimenting with a revised design for the early intake/oval e...

Re: 331 Cylinder thickness

To George; again! The cranks share the same stroke, journal dimensions, maybe even the same casting numbers, and MOST physical characteristics. Except the counterweights and balance specs. Smaller bore engines have smaller pistons, which translates to less rotating/reciprocating weight. Modern stock...

Re: 354 bore limit

To George ; The difference in the stroke does not determine the final compression, the compression distance of the pin center to the top of the piston does. I think the 392 has a longer distance, therefore the compression will be higher. The added amount of material to the top of the piston acts as ...

Re: Lets talk trannys

Another advantage is the LOW first gear ratio of 3.06 whereas a 350 turbo is only 2.52. It helps with the launches for street racing. I put a 700R4 behind a worn out 350 small block a few years ago. The rear gears were 3.55s and the tires about 28-29 inches tall. It turned almost 3000 at cruising sp...

Re: Hemi choice. Need help

Find someone that will rebuild ONE of these for the rest of them with the best of the parts so you won't have to worry about "which one do I ---- " . Specify forged pistons, good cam, aluminum intake, Sealed Power bgs., adjustable rockers, rebuilt rods, etc.. You will be good to go. Buddy

The external sizes are only measured without any machining to remove material. Then each piston is weighed. The lig...
