Re: Hay Yall.....

As far as pistons & C/R is concerned, the 7.5 is nominal. A few that I've read where actual measurements of C/R was done have come in up to a full point low. Custom pistons about doubles the pistion bill, but a measured 9-10:1 is a lot better than stock replacement that might be only 6.5. Yes, I ki...

Re: Hay Yall.....

Good GRIEF! What a hermorphordite sumbee this thing is! The bellhousin wraps AROUND the flywheel, so the only way to remove the bellhousin is to remove the flywheel first. Ya with me? Well, get a load of this. It had STUDS going through the flywheel with nuts ON THE FRONT BETWEEN THE FLYWHEEL AND TH...

Re: Hay Yall.....

Well the little motor has a pretty fresh rebuild on it despite its outward appearance. It is .030 over with fresh cross hatch in the cylinders. The valve guides have no noticeable movement and the lifters actually still have a convex surface. I honestly believe I could have fixed the ignition and go...

Re: Hay Yall.....

Wow. Thanks yall. Yall are really pourin on the info. Much appreciated. Now.......the only other hurdle I need to get over is how to raise the compression without spending a boatload. Because at 7.5:1, it's not what I would call stellar. I've read about the custom Ross slugs, but is there a less cos...

Re: Hay Yall.....

Hay mart, I called Hot Heads this mornin and talked to Eric again. He said this kit: http://hothemiheads.com/water_pumps/thermostat_kit.html will solve the truck head problem as far as water crossover. Other than that, is there any other reason NOT to use the truck heads? I don't mind replacing the ...

Re: Hay Yall.....

mart, Thaks for all that. One thing though. I spoke with Eric at Hot heads last week and he said all I needed for an intake was either the Weiand dual quad, or the Hot Heads single plane because the flanges on them were wide enough to cover the raised exhause crossover. Is he mistaken? Please unders...

Re: Hay Yall.....

David, thanks for your information. Might I ask what kinda book you have? I might want to get one. I doubt seriously I will bore it. Unless it has so much clearance that the pistons are swappin holes, it's gonna get a rering. I think even just a 331 I can make it pretty formidable. Thanks again. I w...

THANK YOU so much. This has made my day. I was hoping for a 331, 354....or of course a 392. But I am extremely happy. Thanks again.

Re: Hay Yall.....

I have a slant 6 block next to it on the stand so I can tell it's big. Here it is. It may actually not be a 354. I don't really care. I know it's not an industrial extended block. I don't think it's a Red Ram, because they were smaller and this is BIG. It even has a factory cast iron dual point dist...

Re: Hay Yall.....

The Hemi has landed. Spent about two and a half hours on the road. I will get some pics when I cool off for a few. It is rusty and crusty. But the guy said it ran real good and if his kids hadn't yanked the plug wires out and packed the distributor with dirt, it would still run. lol He would not eve...

Yes I can. I have done business with the Ebay seller "Falcon Global" a good bit. They are a good seller with excellent feedback. They list their phone number in all their adds. You can call to make sure they have them in stock. Here are your bearings. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Desoto-330-main-b...

Transmission?

I have acquired a 354 Hemi engine. Going to pick it up this week. It is a non industrial, short bellhousing block truck engine. It has a bellhousing attached with clutch pressure plate and flywheel. So, I have an A230 heavy duty Mopar three speed transmission. Does anyone know if it will bolt to the...

A 400 dollar 354. And it's supposed to run. Bellhousin, clutch pressure plate....and the large outlet 4 hole manifold...

Yes, I have spoken with Eric @ hotheads. Extremely nice people there. He even said I could call him on the spot and give him the numbers and he would let me know what it is. Since the seller said it's a truck engine, Eric told me that the numbers for those were not on their site and I could just cal...

I think so, too. I have done extensive reading on them. I am trying to sell some parts to get the money up. If I am successful, I will post pictures when I get the engine.

I'm Rob. I didn't see a place for introductions and since I am going to look at a 354 hemi in the next day or so, I'll put this here. Don't know the year, but it's supposedly a truck engine. Non extended block. It's a running engine and the gentleman wants 400 dollars for it. I am a complete newbie ...
