Chrysler sold industrial hemis to what seems like anyone who would buy them. They were used in irrigation pumps, windmills, generators, fire trucks, airport tug vehicles. Most were 331 or 354. 392's were NOT used.
The marine engines were very much the same as the industrials.

I just bought a 354 that was used for power on an irrigation pump. I've got my eye on another, too. The guy I bought this from said it would push a mile of water thru the pipes at an idle!!
