Don Fromader's webrodder.com article


Poking around on the internet the past few days I've come across at least a dozen references to Don Fromader's article on building up a Dodge 315 hemi on a website called webrodder.com. I've been there, and there's no such article anywhere. Does ANYBODY, ANYWHERE happen to have a copy of that article? It appears to me that website is just not what it used to be somehow. Many, many dead links. Anyway, I'd be one very happy camper if someone could send me a copy of that article to charleypete1957@yahoo.com. Thanks so much!

Wrong thread. and...an early hemi isn't a modern engine.

Yes it is not a modern engine yet specs given in early manual do not apply .Are you fitting the pistons at .001" . No you must use modern methods . Or all you will have is an old tech fifties engine. You fit the forged pistons at what the maker wants not the Chrysler service manual from 53.

Charlie:
The last time I talked to Doc, he had been terribly ill and was hoping to recover soon and get the site back up. That's why I left it in links.
It's been so long now I guess I need to remove it. I can always put it back.
Doc has a lot of knowledge and is glad to share it when he can.
Lets all wish him a full recovery, Bob

Apparently the tech guy who set up Webrodder used a propriety system & after he & Doc had a falling out he quit working on the site & it imploded with a loss of all data, according to a tech guy who Doc had try to save the site.

I went to have a look and could not get any of the links to work.

There were 10 or 12 separate articles detailing the building of a stroker, but it also had lots of good information for anyone doing a build. The articles were incomplete and with minimal photos. The end game was to sell a complete set with all photos which came as hard copies by US Postal. Cost was around $50. I bought a set and was happy with my purchase. I would not copy them for anyone unless the site never comes back up and they are no longer available for sale. Not sure how we would determine that unless the site disappears.

Used to,before they closed down,the WPC Museum in Dearborn Michigan provided access to their archives,but last time I tried I got nowhere. Bummer! I was trying to get all the data they had on the '57 Chrysler 300C Code 399 Stick Shift Coupe. (They only built 18 of em)
