Intermediate shaft for poly
on: Sun 22 of Nov, 2020 [16:48 UTC] score: 0.00
Hi!

I'm going to restore a 1959 Dogde 326 poly and I miss the intermediate shaft. Could any of the hemi engines from Dodge or Desoto have the same length intermediate shaft?

If not I guess I can make one work by shortening it. Wich one would be closest? (longer)

Thanks!
Jesper

392 fun
on: Sun 25 of Oct, 2020 [01:26 UTC] score: 0.00
Hello,
I am logged in as oldrat46, new phone lost password, actually been here awhile.
Anyway been playing with a 392 equipped 46 Plymouth for years. In an attempt to get it to run correctly I have changed many things carburetion ,timing ,advance springs ,and advanced stops. Always ran ok, never awesome.
Recently with a timing light on it, I noticed the advance didn’t happen while revving the engine. Thinking I had a bad timing light I switch timing lights same result.
Send the distributor back to MSD for the second time describing the problem this time they tell me the “ Fly weights“ were installed backwards.
Got the distributor back time the engine took it for a ride and boy was I astonished! Car now runs as it should! Of course I am still playing with it as I think I can get a little more out of it.

isky 505t cam

Is anyone familiar with the isky 505t cam? I found one for a 325 dodge and don't know if it would work for the street, if there are lifters available or if it could be reground? It does have the hardened inlays. Thanks.

If you call Isky they can tell you anything you want to know. I let them select my can after I tell them what I want the car to do.

DeSoto Oilpan Modification
on: Mon 21 of Sep, 2020 [17:29 UTC] score: 0.00
Contemplating using my S-23 330 DeSoto in a 60s A- or B- body project. Among other issues, the S-23 has a rear sump pan that will interfere with the stock tie rod location in those cars. I'd love to hear from anyone who has modified the DeSoto oilpan and pick up and any other issues that caused. Thanks in advance. tdesoto276

There was a significant chassis change for Desoto in 1957 and thus the 341 and 345 hemi engines of that year used a "center sump" oil pan. If you could find one of these I'm sure it would work for you. Bob at Hot Heads sells modified 340 oil pumps and a pick-up for this pan.

Good Luck,

Moparruss

From the Oil pump parts numbers there was one that shows as being used on all tall deck Chr/Desoto/Dodges. So the Melling 392 O/P & center sump pick up should work. Then you just have to get a welder to cut up your pan & a 392 pan & weld it back up.

Auto to Manual Transmission
on: Fri 04 of Sep, 2020 [15:07 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 [15:38 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.
