Troy,
The information I have varies, but for 1/2" studs ARP says 90 ft lbs with moly assembly lube or 130 ft lbs with oil. Milodon says 35 ft lbs for the 3/8" side bolts using oil.

Al did post 740 h.p., with 665 rwhp. At any case, it will be a test of the factory components.

It will be interesting to see how far Mopar will go with this design, as far a cubic inches. Does anyone know if the 6.4 uses the same block casting?

Unless you are racing, I would find it hard to justify the cost to get to 740 hp and 426 c.i.d., especially since the Hot Rod 5.7 Crate motor ending up making 712 h.p. Thats alot of $$$ for 28 h.p. It will however be a good test for the durability of the crank and block. Keep us posted.

The shafts are held into the end stand with grooved roll pins. You can carefully drive the pins out from the bottom side.

Chrysler often used the same casting number for car or truck applications. The truck or industrial applications will usually have larger diameter (ID)exhaust guides, as these applications used sodium filled valves.

Have I seen any of these blocks break apart? No. What I am saying is that 1: if you read the side bar in the Hot Rod article titled 712 HP time bomb , it tells what the Chrysler engineers have to say about anything over the 500 HP level. I am sure if the guys at MP thought they had a 1000 hp capable...

Its nice to see all the horsepower numbers people want to reach with these 5.7/6.1/6.4 .... 800...900...1000 with turbos, etc. The fact is that these blocks are not going to take it, and there are going to be a whole lot of people picking up pieces of block and crank off the highway. Yes, they are n...

Sure Pete...I could use a 6.1 crank. What's the info? Since there are none in any warehouse or parts depot, and none shown in any inventory, with no release date, having an in-service date of 2050 (yes, 2050) and only available someday maybe if ordered thru the Star Center.

My thoughts are that if and when the 392 hemi is finally available to the public, the 5.7-6.1 cranks will start to appear.
Its just the way Mopar seems to work. :-?

As posted, eBay is probably your best bet. If the seller doesnt list the length, take a few minutes and send him an email asking.
You will also need the flat steel washers that sit on the top of the seals, that the wire cover presses against.

Girdles, continued

The Dodge piece looks great. It wont be long now.

As for the Desoto, I have received 0 interest, so it looks like this one may wait.

Also, all kits are available with ARP bolts or studs. The best fasteners for the best (and only) early hemi main cap girdles. :D

This is sort of on topic..... who are the shops that you guys have had doing your crankshaft work? And are they equipped to weld, index, and offset grind? Thanks.
If you would rather not list shop names, please PM me or email twaters@together.net

So to answer the original question, I would say ( my opinion) its a question of how much money you want to spend for some peace of mind. And to clear one thing up..a girdle such as the one that I manufacture will increase rigidity of the bottom end, not clamping force of the main caps. It does not r...

There are a few options..... and even more opinions :wink: For a street (non 1200 hp :roll: )motor, stock caps will be fine. But.......... Remember that anything other than using the stock caps with bolts is going to require at the minimum an align hone. Using studs will require an align hone. Using...
