Re: Desoto intake

The '59 will bolt right on. Be more $ but Quality Engineered Components has a hemi to late model 727 that would be a better choice. Strange that you're S 24 has a 2 bl. most DeSotos came with 2 bls though.

Re: transmission interchange

ALL Mopar trannys for the hemi, hemi based poly & "A" Poly up to '61 will bolt on except the 51-3 long tail 331 chr hemis. there were both 2 & 3 speed iron case trannys (PF & TF) available before the change for '62, think '57 was 1st year for 3 spd.

Re: 331 Worth Saving?

Do you mean a big chunk was busted out of the block, or they brazed a crack & put the patch over it for additional strength? If cracked you could melt out the brass & find a good welder to weld it up. You'll have to decide if worth the cost. How did the cyls mic out?

Re: 56 354 valve question

If valve was stuck in open position you would have contact. Yes, they are cool! :-) if 'years ago" you were probably lucky the pistons (rings) weren't stuck.

Re: New Cams for Chrysler, Dodge and Desoto Hemis

318 are the ones that work, just the right space for the cross bars. Lifter holes are too close together on the Dodge, and too far apart for the Chrs. Sounds like you received a regrind that has too much ground off.

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 gea...

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), 440. repor...

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 to s...

Re: 315 Poly Loses spark

Probably something like the condenser heating up. Might check & see if there's a Pertronix for your dizzy.
