Re: Aluminum Desoto heads

Why not see if there's a bigger market - see if someone like Hot Heads is interested ?

Also, in part two, there's mention of NEW - not remanufactured - blocks and cranks.

Re: Shaker hood

Where did you get it from ? I'd try the suppliers first, and, if no success, try the likes of Year One.

Somewhere in the recesses of my mind I think the likes of Mopar Muscle magazine, and High Performance Mopar (are they still going ?) have cover this. Try them too.

Good luck !

Re: Hemi crate motor problems continued

Is that Hemi really as tight as it looks ? I know they weren't a loose fit in the A-bodies, but that doesn't look as if there's room for the engine to move under throttle response !

Neat though !

Re: HEMI 5.7 accessories

Have you tried contacting AEV - Link: http://www.aev-conversions.com/

They do Hemi's into Jeeps, so they must encountered this before. They might recommend some websites too for V8 Jeep conversions.

Will they make a kit for the Ram 1600, the one that the majority of Hemi's go in ?

Alan,

There's a couple of UK contacts you could try:

http://www.jeffbullraceengines.co.uk/

I'm not trying to complicate things, it's just that you might not get the answers you need straight away.

Good luck, and keep us posted !

Re: Lets talk trannys

From a stock point of view, the A518 is the stronger unit. But, people such as SMR Transmissions have gone to an awlful lot of trouble to negate any weaknesses in the original design of either transmission. Your best bet is to talk with them. Remember that the A904 based o/d is physically smaller, s...

Re: Lets talk trannys

There were adapters to fit the A904 based OD unit, the A500 (?). I think T. R. Waters was one supplier of them. Not sure about the physical dimensions though,. It might be quite bulky compared to the original 904, as the OD part was an add-on to the original design. Do Bouchillon Performance do thes...
