Cam Identification
on: Tue 09 of Apr, 2019 [18:17 UTC] score: 0.00
I am looking for the complete specs on a vintage Crower 392 cam in a motor I bought. Unfortunately the seller only had the following from the cam card.

110 lobe separation
107 intake centerline

If someone has an old Crower catalog, maybe they could fill in the blanks just based on those two stats?

Thanks, Pete

325 Intake Adapter
on: Wed 20 of Mar, 2019 [22:44 UTC] score: 0.00
I have an aluminum intake for the 241/270 low decks. I am wondering, if anyone makes adapter plates for using it on a tall deck 325's? I have seen adapters for the Desoto and Chrysler engines now and then for sale, but never the Dodge. I saw one on a Dodge years back, but the guy said he bought the engine that way with the manifold in place.

'56 354 head crossover
on: Tue 05 of Mar, 2019 [21:31 UTC] score: 0.00
Hi, this is my first post so be gentle!

I have a '56 truck 354, there's no water crossover between the heads, I know it comes from between the intake runners. Is it possible or worthwhile to open up the casting pads on the fronts of the heads & make a crossover to keep things tidy?

It's been suggested I just buy a pair of passenger car heads, if anyone wants to sell me a pair for reasonable money & pay for the shipping to England, we can have a deal!

Cheers.

How are things in England this day?
Another option is to look at any of the Hot Heads intakes. Between the first and second front runner on each side we have a pipe thread boss drilled and tapped to run fittings and hose to a remote thermostat block. The remote thermostat block is part #21409. You can use hardware store fittings and heater hose to connect them. We make one but it's A/N fittings and stainless braded line (expensive but looks cool).
Those threaded bosses were designed for truck, marine and '54 and older engines.
Let me know if we can help further, Bob

I think T. R. Waters makes the adaptors to open up the front of the heads for a crossover. try googling him. Or buy a '54 331 4 bl intake.

T56 behind a Hemi
on: Fri 01 of Mar, 2019 [18:52 UTC] score: 0.00
Been noticing a lot of T56 transmissions on the resell market. Had one in a Viper I used to own. Got to thinking, I thought I heard the V10 was just a 360 with two extra cylinders. If so would the bell housing be basically a small block bolt pattern and in turn work with one of Hothead's transmission adapters.

Here's some food for thought: I put a Quick time #8076 bell behind a 291 Desoto with a Ford TKO600. This is a G3 bell with the starter on the right. They also have the 318 Bell and I believe the T56 bell is #8077. I made my own 7/8" adapter, but I believe Bobs torqueflite adapter is compatable. My challenge was putting the starter on the right required relief under the oil filter pad to accept the 2009 hemi starter. I used an aluminum flywheel and for my offset I had to stack a second ring gear on it which has worked for over 2 years just fine. I spent a lot of time with the dial indicator and had to use a ford clutch arm as my offset was too much for the hydraulic internal throwout. I also had some lathe time to make an adapter for the throwout bearing. Since then I have seen some new part #s come out that may work better. Bolt holes align but dowel pins do not. You need to be creative.

RS: A few years back, I bought a T-56 Magnum trans from the Keisler Bros. with a PO that specified it had to fit a '55 Chevy V8 bellhousing and have the throw out bearing installed. Keisler is out of business now. I had some trouble getting the correct Chevy bolt pattern but when the trans arrived, it was beautiful and everything I wanted. Using our Chevy manual trans adapter I had it installed in one evening.
The car and driver both enjoy traveling at 70 MPH @ 1,800 rpm.
Have fun,
Bob

Podunk: For a '55 331 I would use an Autolite 65 and read them. If your air/fuel mixture is correct you will stay with the '65's. Thanks for using the Forum, Bob

392 exhaust valve stem seals
on: Tue 12 of Feb, 2019 [17:39 UTC] score: 0.00
I'm using positive valve stem seals on my intake valves, but unsure about the exhaust valves. Umbrella or no seal at all? I seem to remember that it's best not to run any seal on the exhaust valve, but not sure. What has everyone used on the exhaust side?

Modern seals in modern engines, not necessarily relevant to an early hemi.

George you speak from rectum, Any oil not burnt means more power in any engine. Keep oil out of the chamber . The same physics applies to both . Your not thinking . If we still build engines like the 1950s we would be going backwards. I know you just throw out statement s and try to look smart . I'm not smart I read a lot.
