Re: 1956 Matthews Martinique with twin 331 chrysler marine hemis

sounds like a great story! IF they make a Pertronix for your dist. you could try that. Or you'll have to lengthen the dist shaft (or the swap shaft if that works) or lengthen the Int shaft. The gears might be cut reverse, but there's a good possibility of 3 timing gears instead of 2 & a chain. 3...

Re: 1956 Matthews Martinique with twin 331 chrysler marine hemis

Some engines (truck/marine?) have 3 gears instead of the normal timing chain resulting in the dizzy turning the normal direction

Re: 1956 Matthews Martinique with twin 331 chrysler marine hemis

RB means Raised Block, the deck height was raised to get a longer stroke, this increased the distance the dizzy shaft has to go to get to the int shaft vs the original B block. Chr made engines in both B & RB blocks. B 350, 361, 383 (except in '59), 400 RB '59 383, 413,426 (Wedge & Hemi), 44...

Re: 1956 Matthews Martinique with twin 331 chrysler marine hemis

You can get the whole ignition system (dizzy, boxes, wiring) off a 73 through some time in the 80s Mopar or get a kit from Mopar performance. If one of the dizzys turns counter clock wise either the B or RB dizzy (don't know which) should bolt in.
What carb set up you have? 4 bl or 2X1?

Re: 1956 Matthews Martinique with twin 331 chrysler marine hemis

Assuming one is counter rotating, does the dizzys in both engines turn clock wise or different directions?

Re: 1956 Matthews Martinique with twin 331 chrysler marine hemis

You can upgrade the ignition by going to an electronic dizzy for the 318/340. either by cutting & extending the dizzy shaft or installing a longer intermediate shaft. reportedly you can install a shat ot of either a B or RB big block in the LA dizzy, one is the right length. Guy never came back ...

Probably. hemis can run a point higher C/R on the same octane as a wedge, so what octane would be needed on a 5.6-6.5 wedge engine?
