    Any 331 Hemi hot rodders on here?

    Has anyone messed with a 1954 chrysler 331 Hemi? I found a old car i am thinking about trying to get running or pulling the engine to use in another old project. Any Do's and Dont's?

    One other thing i am going to look out tomorrow is the bellhousing. I am thinking about putting a th400 behind it. If it is the short block people make a kit for this, if it is the hemi with the bellhousing made on they dont i believe. I was thinking i could use it anyway and possibly cut my th400 like i was going to put a ultra bell on it, but instead make a adapter plate the right length to get the convertor in and in the front pump. The hemi with the bell housing made on looks about the right length to do so.... Any old hotrodders?

    Thanks, Keith

    my brother [THE CHRYSLER MAN]-whose 48 dodge pickup is in the readers rides section of the Jan issue of a Mopar magazine 8) 8) had to throw that in here :lol: :lol: ---does the old hemi's :? :? he currently has a running 331 on a stand and a complete hemi for building later on for FUN!!!
    they are heavy -but-they are great looking stuffed into an old coupe or truck.
    they can be very expensive to hot rod and build -but!!
    if it is the old style with the made on bell housing--it can be cut off and redone that way--there are quite a few hemi nuts around that can help

    if you do not want to use the old anchor then contact me 8) 8) :roll: :roll:
    thanks Lively
