270 Hemi water pump
on: Mon 24 of Jun, 2019 [14:49 UTC] score: 0.00
I have a 270 Hemi which I ordered your small block Chevy water pump adapter for. There are two different small block Chevy water pumps a short and a long. To use all my original pulleys and retain same distance for belts aligning and all, which pump do I use??

1956 330 hemi conversion
on: Tue 11 of Jun, 2019 [21:33 UTC] score: 0.00
Hey guys. I’m wondering if you can help. I’m looking at converting my 330 hemi 12 volt generator motor to an alternator. Can anyone tell me what model alternator to use and where to get/mount the bracket?

Second problem is the power-steering pump runs off the back of the generator. So once that’s gone, what power steering pump and bracket can be used? Thanks hemi fans!

On my current car with OEM W/P the brackets were fabricated to bolt up to the upper left arm of the W/P with a fabbed bracket to hold the adjusting bracket that mounts on top of the W/P.

I've used Chr 331s, not DeSotos, but they should be fairly similar. On a '48 Plym I used to have, with the long BB Chevy W/P, I moved the alt bracket forward by drilling a new hole in it and running a piece of plate back to the rear mount hole on the intake. That allowed the Alt pulley to line up with the crank, W/P, and P/S ones. Car had an early 70s Chevelle/Cutlass front clip to I used the HH P/S brackets & the GM P/S pump that was there from the pulled Olds 454.

HH sells brackets for both, or have someone fabricate part or all on them. A wiring guy can wire up what ever alt. you get, but the GM 1 wire is popular.

Thanks George. HH only sells brackets for alternator and a/c if you convert the entire front end of your engine. And that still won’t solve the power steering pump issue. I’m hoping someone has mounted a power steering pump that isn’t factory on a 330? To make a custom bracket, the guys I’ve talked to have asked for the motor to be shipped to them.

Positive ground
on: Tue 04 of Jun, 2019 [01:59 UTC] score: 0.00
I just noticed that my 55 desoto 291 was set up for a positive ground.
I am putting it in a hot rod and I'm using a new model starter and distributor as well as a negative ground generator from a 55 Cadillac.
Any issues that I am not seeing in running a negative ground?
Things like this tend to sneak up on me and bite me when I am not looking.
Hate to have something weird happen like having it run backwards or something. Be just my luck.

Just don't forget to reverse coil polarity.

This might help: http://www.how-to-build-hotrods.com/6v-to-12v.html

I changed my 51 Kaiser over to 12v 40 years ago. I wish I had this to read back then.

Good Luck,

Should there be a gasket or o-ring between the distributor and the Block? I seem to have some oil around my distibutor

First time blower motor questions
on: Sun 26 of May, 2019 [20:59 UTC] score: 0.00
Looking for some basic timing advice for a mag fired 6-71 blown 392. This is a street driven car so don't need ragged edge timing, just want a good-safe baseline to go from. I am running less than 5lbs boost.

Trent: Unless a dyno tells you it likes 31 or 29 better, set it on 30 degrees total.
Thanks for using the forum, Bob

John:
I'm afraid there is no part number list. A lot is custom one off. If you're still interested, call Sonny Bryant and ask him the cost of a race quality 354 crank with a 3.875 stroke with Honda size rod journals.
Thank you for your interest in our engine,
Bob
