There will be a casting # on block between the head & valley cover on pas. side toward the back. There is a code stamped on a flat just in front of valley pan on pas. side, sometimes they're readable sometimes not. Post the #s!

casting?

I was a bit fast with the head casting. It seems that # was used on 361, 383,413, & 426 wedge engines. You probably have an original 426 Max Wedge engine, not a Hemi, but what a place to start a mid 60's project!

.060

.060 is how much of an oversize,in thousands of an inch,the cylender bore is. Check the "calculator" section of this site. To get a 426 out to 477 you would have to increase the stroke(distance crank turns) to get that big. Most engines are limited to about .040 for street use,thou some blocks can g...

331 ind.

There are adaptors for the long tail 331. I believe Hot Heads & wilcap both have them. If yuo're going to use it you will have to have cam reground or replaced,a 354 cam would be best choice. You can run a 340 timing chain if you use a spacer w/354 cam. Make shure vibration damper will fit on crank....

RR Vs SRR

My guess is: freed up name to use on the poly engine Poly is Red Ram Hemi is Super Red Ram, reduces confusion where both engines are same size in the same model year. Saw a study a few years ago,80% of new car buyers don't know #of cylenders under thier hood!

56 354 dual quad intake question

On the 354 & the 55 331 You can use the manifold by putting a Chevy water pump on & using a 392 water crossover. The long BB Chevy water pump fits over the stock timing cover,of course using the W/P adaptors

cam swap

You can put the 354 cam in the 331 & use 318/340 timing set. You must use a spacer between the cam & timing gear or it will lock on the block when you tighten it down.

It should be noted there are long tail 2v 54s & short tail 4v 54s. People new to Hemis should get Tex smith/Ron Ceridono's" Complete Chrysler Hemi" fromHot Rod Library (208)354-8133. Over all it a great book,very few errors. You didn't say what frame your using up front original or sub frame? it can...
