Need help on Dipstick length
on: Sat 08 of Sep, 2018 [15:11 UTC] score: 0.00
Hi guys, I would really appreciate it if you gurus can give some information on dipstick lengths.
I have two dipstick/tube assemblies. One is for a 354 rear sump and the other a 392 centersump that I have somehow mixed up.
I am now using the rear sump pan from the 354 on my 392.
Can you guys Inform me on what the length should be from where the flared area of tube seats on block to the high mark on dipstick.
Cheers and Thanks
John

Put 5 quarts in it. Let it run for a couple of minutes. Let it drain down for awhile. Check your oil, mark dipstick or cut tube to match.

SB vs BB ChevyWater Pump
on: Mon 06 of Aug, 2018 [11:06 UTC] score: 0.00
Which water pump is best for a 354 Hemi? A small block or big block Chevy? What is the reason one is better than the other?

The long BB Chevy W/P will fit over the stock timing cover.

750 cfm carb ?
on: Sun 05 of Aug, 2018 [19:36 UTC] score: 0.00
Hello,
I have been enjoying my 392 powered 46 Plymouth for years. Motor is .060 over, 10.5:1 , mild Howards cam., making 405 cu.in. Changed gearing awhile back from 3.0:1 to 3.55:1. Woke it up even more from a stand still.
Currently running a750 cfm Edelbrock carb, with a bypass regulator.
Using Autolite 65 ‘s
Feels like throttle responce is crisp, but tends to foul out the plugs.
Is this too much carburetor for this motor?
Adjusted the settings per Edelbrock recommendations.
Thanks
Russ

> Hello,
Well im thinking definitely not blowbuy. Doesnt use a drop of oil, probably not 6000 miles on it since a rebuild.
Perhaps a rejet might be a wise choice.
Thanks for advice

That might help. technically it's trying to be a band aide on the problem if the carb is too big.

I agree that 750 is to big.
But fouling plugs could be to big of jets. Or oil blowby.

ARP head studs hit valve cover?
on: Fri 03 of Aug, 2018 [20:47 UTC] score: 0.00
My ARP studs hit the stock valve covers on my 354 hemi. Is this normal? How do I correct this? Thought about trimming bottom of stud and removing the washer under the nut. Will that be ok? Also will the Hot Heads aluminum valve covers clear them if I don't shorten them? Thanks!

block casting numbers
on: Fri 27 of Jul, 2018 [11:51 UTC] score: 0.00
can someone help me with what this engine is from ,make ect , its a 354 /60 over low block and has a W cast on the p/side block, and the drivers side has a small number 8 on top of a larger W , also a W cast over the cam shaft area and looks to be a W with a 8 or B along the block edge by piston number 5 near the valley cover edge, best I can see with a camera on a stick. there no clear marking where the engine number should be and I do not see evidence of a plate on the rear drivers side of the block. alloy timing cover top holes are at 11 and 1 o'clock position,chev water pump and water outlets in the head ends. it is a rebuilt engine so heads may have been changed. I was trying not to pull the intake (runners are joined together so cant see through them) as it is running in a hotrod and not scratch the paint. have read where it could be a industrial, truck or a poly , I am new to mopar but trying to get it worked out. thanks crusty
