Auto to Manual Transmission
on: Fri 04 of Sep, 2020 [14:07 UTC] score: 0.00
Would like some advice, tips/tricks and or ideas for a change for a 1955 Dodge 2 speed Powerflite on a 270 Hemi to a 5 speed manual(Richmond or Tremec).
Also will be adding quick change style rear differential.
I realize a custom driveshaft will be required, complete pedal assembly change and flexplate to flywheel with bellhousing.

Thanks,

Mike

I built a hydraulic slave cylinder mount and used a pedal assy from a racing site.
Much easier than a mechanical set up in my opinion.
Then a kit from TR Waters will space out the 426 Hemi flywheel That you will need and fit a small block Mopar bellhousing to your block. Make sure you use a pilot bushing, If I recall TRs kit comes with that.
Tremec could probably tell you if they have a tranny that will fit the Mopar bellhousing as I used a OEM tranny. If not maybe they can recommend a bellhousing.
If you go with the SBM bell remember that there are three different input bearing sizes and the transmission input bearing has to match the bellhousing.
The 426 flywheel will bolt to the Dodge crankshaft and will take a 10 inch clutch, or was it 10 1/2" you can get that set up thru Summit racing as well.
Easy Peasy and only a A few thousand invested. (mostly in that tremec)
If you are running a QC a regular old four speed might work OK as you can match your gears to what ever you are doing with the car in a matter of minutes.

Water pump hose
on: Wed 26 of Aug, 2020 [14:38 UTC] score: 0.00
I have a 392 and have converted to using Hot Heads bbc aluminum water pump. I have a be cool rad which water outlet is on the bottom, passenger side. My problem is , I need a formed hose to go from rad to water pump. I’ve tried various universal flex hoses but they eventually fail and I leave me sitting on the side of the road. I need a brand name and a part number for a preformed hose. Please help. My next trick is to take a coat hanger and bend it into a similar shape. Nor all parts stores let you rummage through their stock. Thanks for your time, Ed Friesen

I have had a similar problem and ended up using just a couple of formed bends and a piece of exhaust tubing.
If you have a muffler guy he can even bend that up some for you.

My understanding is they went bankrupt & some who had sold them stuff didn't get payed. I imagine creditors probably siezed left over inventory.

Starter woes
on: Mon 17 of Aug, 2020 [20:29 UTC] score: 0.00
I have a 354 Hemi here with Hotheads trans adapter and chrome starter. I started the engine to break in the cam and can honestly say that I have never seen an engine fire up so quickly. Today I tried to start it again and the starter is not engaging with the flywheel. I have removed it from the car and it all works as it should. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem?

What is this?
on: Fri 14 of Aug, 2020 [19:47 UTC] score: 0.00
I am looking at a hemi that a guy I know has. He says he doesn't know what cu or anything about it except that he thinks it came out of a piece of machinery. It has two tall carbs on it that look like single barrels to me. It looks very old and I want to post a photo but I don't see that option.

Ok, the serial number shows that this motor is a 331 Chrysler, 1951 model year. It is complete but condition unknown. Can anyone give me an idea as to how much this thing would be worth?

Thanks

Hi, From the photo I took it looks like the intake is one piece. The intake has 2 horizontal tubes which go from carb opening to carb opening . The carbs also have 2 tall vertical velocity stacks on them. The valve covers read "Hemi Fire Power". I am going to try to go back and get some numbers tonight or tomorrow.

That probably is the 2X1 truck intake. Had one once, sold it w/o using it. A guy on Thehemi.com forum used adaptors to use two 2GC 2 bl carbs. Don't know if he ever finished the project. Fire trucks used Hemis, but don't know what intake those used.

330 Desoto front cover
on: Wed 12 of Aug, 2020 [02:25 UTC] score: 0.00
Trying to take off the stock front cover to install my Hot Heads aluminum cover.
Any tricks?
I can't break it loose with putty knife or any other thin blade.
Pan is dropped and crank hub off.
Don't want break anything!

Thanks!
