Re: 241 Dodge Hemi 1954 block & heads

Von: The 3/8" pushrods clear. The only times you may conflict is if your rockers are worn against the stands. If that's true, you needed to shim them back anyway. The other condition is large i.e. roller cams. For big cams, the 3/8" pushrod is standard and we drill the pushrod holes to 1/2". The 3/8...

In addition to the 6x2 log manifold, Hot Heads can get a fabricated 3x2 or 4x2 or even an 8x2 log manifold.

Gullwing:
If you're going to use a Hot Heads bellhousing adapter and flywheel, the pilot beading will be built into the flywheel and no machining is required, If you're using a 50's or '60 adapter, the crank will probably need to be drilled. A mock up will be required to find out for sure.
Have fun!

New Fluidampr

Lee: Fluidampr built a damper for 392 only a while back but discontinued it. Fluidampr contacted Hot Heads last year and asked us if we would help correct the limitations in its use and put it back on the market. The new Fluidamper works on ALL early hemi engines, is indexed for all aftermarket timi...

354 stroker

Scott: We've built several 354 strokers. Due to the shorter rod length, I think it's a better set up than the 392. In addition, the 354/331 block is a stronger unit. We use a 4" stroke and stock length 354 rod. The block needs to be clearanced and custom pistons ordered. Thanks for your effort on th...

Vagabond:
Obviously, the figures listed above were for the 354. For the 392. add 25 to 50 HP. The 392 in my boat makes a strong 500 HP and still idles well.
Have fun,

Vagabond:
Any early hemi with 10 to 1 comp, HP cam, electronic ignition, late model intake system and headers will make in excess if 1 HP/CI. 375 HP w/ comperable torque should not be difficult to make or difficult to drive in traffic.
Have fun with it,
