276 Desoto hemi


I recently aquired a 276 hemi from a 52 Desoto from a friend who has had it for several years torn apart in his garage. It was complete when he pulled it out of the car years ago. I am working on figuring out what parts are missing or need to be replaced and freeing up a bunch of stuck parts and cleaning 60 some years of grease and grime. I got the rockers freed up and I am working on getting the pistons out.
I have been doing a bunch of research on parts availability and found this place is about the only game in town.
I am interested in the replacement timing cover. I know that I need to change the cam, but what exactly do I need to do? I would like to be able to use the Chevy water pump and drop about a hundred pounds of cast iron from the block.
I am looking forward to reading more about this monster and learning from you folks.

Thanks.
What needs to be done with the cam? Is a replacement available or can someone modify mine?

Odiesdad: Go to www.hothemiheads.com and click on DeSoto Parts, then 'F'. Then find front drive assemblies and options for a list and pricing. Let me know if you have further questions, Bob
