> well the deal fell thru on this engine but I'm picking up another 354 with the numbers L8-D7 , Dodge truck motor ?? Been doing a little bit of reading and these engines might not be ideal and need a bit of changes to make them street usable ( hotrod wise ) . I havnt seen it yet . I know it's got the flywheel , bell housing attached . $500 is the price . Any things to look for or are these pretty much the same . Thanks everyone , Richard

On any hemi check for freeze cracks around the freeze plugs. For $500 I'd jump on it! Should have the fat stem sodium filled ex valves, but you would want to replace 60 year old valves anyway (and the ex guides. Heads may have the square under carb car passage or the tall & narrow ind type. Some I have has the square ones. Any chr intake will work. Tall & narrow would take the HH intake.

> thanks again George . This engine is from an long time hotrodder . He was going to put it in one of his cars but decided he was done with modifying and will leave it as is . He sounds like he's got lots of stuff from years of building so I'm excited just to meet him and for as far as $500 goes these days i get my money's worth just in the experience . I'll check the plug areas and not sure what else I'll look for . Is there a way to tell the square or rectangular area without taking things apart . I read there are pan differences too , anyway I should be able to tell some things when I get there and the seller seems knowledgeable and a straight shooter . Thanks , Richard

truck, Ind., marine and 51-54 car pans are the same. Supposedly the only difference on the 55-58 car pans is the front bolt holes on each side are in a different place & you can just redrill. the 392 pans are center sump

The intake is fairly flat in that area on the square passage, noticibly high on the tall.

It is a 354 truck engine. VT452 = 354 and 1414 is the serial number of the engine. Good hot rod material, depending on price, condition (free or rusty and stuck). Good luck.
