I was thinking of creating a list of available engines and the kits they are found in. I do not wish to reinvent any wheels. Does anyone know of any such lists posted? Is anyone but me interested in such a waste of time?

I would like to compile a list of reasonably available kits as sources for various engines, mostly street rod types.

Slant 6...AMT Deora
Cross Ram Inducted Mopar...Johan '68 Chrysler 300
Pontiac V-8...Revell 56 F-100

If this type of database would be a service maybe we could put it together here for future reference.

Here is a list of sources to get started.

Desoto Fire Dome Hemi, carb/fi x8 AMT 53 F-100
Chrysler Fire Power Hemi Supercharged x2 AMT 53 Starliner Cpe
Supercharged Blueprinter Engines
Desoto Fire Dome Eight carb x6 Monogram Lil' Coffin
Chrysler Firepower CrossRam (long) Johan 68 Chry. 300

Cadillac Supercharged AMT 59 ElCamino
3x2bbl AMT 49 Ford
4 or 6x2bbl Revell Parts Paks

Chevrolet 6 Cyl AMT 37 Chev Cabriolet, 51 Chev, 60 Chev P/U
Galaxy 48 Chev
Revell 41 Chev P/U

Pontiac 1x4bbl Revell 56 F-100
3x2bbl or Supercharged Revell Parts Paks

SOHC 427 2x4bbl AMT 66 Galaxie

W Block Chev 348-409 AMT 58 Impala, 59 ElCamino, 62 BelAir
Revell 53,54,55 Chev

Slant 6 Cyl AMT/MPC Deora

Ford 4 Cyl Winfield head Revell 29 P/U
Riley 2 Port head (OHV) Revell 31 Woody,Sedan

These are all engines in kits that I could verify from my humble collection.
I did not list obvious sources like Mercury engines in Mercury kits.
I did list some interesting and sought after parts combos.
Please add to the list, but only those that you know are correct so that we can have a reliable resource.

Looks like a good idea.

How about a standardised format to make it easy to sort them?

If we name each column, the table can be sorted in a spreadsheet.

How about?

Didn't know where to put these;
Supercharged Blueprinter Engines
Galaxy 48 Chev
Revell 41 Chev P/U
W Block Chev 348-409 AMT 58 Impala, 59 ElCamino, 62 BelAir
Revell 53,54,55 Chev

If they're in wrong spots they are easy changed, but I figure you would get the idea.

This is a great idea. Always wondering what engine is in what kit.

Steve,
The chart looks excellent. It is what I would have done if I wasn't just a hack with this computer thingy. When I made my list the computer justified all info to the left, so lines that start with ,for example "2x4bbl" should fall under the engine type listed above. Thanks for putting in the effort ! 8)

The list is great. I'd love to be able to see where I could find some offbeat motors and accessories, as well as some of the old standards.

I have a minor suggestion: In the engine type column, you might just go with the cylinder configuration such as I6 for an inline six-cylinder, V8 or I8 for V- or Straight-8 motors, Flat 4 for VW motors and so on.

Then maybe add another column for additional info such as Hemi Firepower or Red Ram or flathead, OHV, Riley or Winfield head. Btw, those motors with the Riley and Winfield heads are the same Model A flathead I4 motor with OHV or F-head conversions.

I'll be happy to help with any displacement or configuration questions...at least those that are in my knowledge base...like the 348/409 Chevy motors might be listed as V8 (W-motor). Smallblocks (283, 327, 350) could be described as SBC (small block Chevy) and 396, 427 and 454 could be shown as BBC (big block Chevy.)

I'm not to good on later Ford motors other than Y-blocks, so if Raisin is around here, he could prolly help out with that.

Slotbaker asked about the Revell 53-55 Chevy motors. I'm not exactly sure what's in the kit, but the standard motor for all these cars was a 235 cid I6 known as the "Blue Flame" six. in 1955, the V8 option was introduced and it had a displacement of 265 cid. The earlier Chevys (41 and 48 ) would have also had the venerable Blue Flame Six (also known as a Stovebolt 6) in 216 or 235 cid form. This Stovebolt was used up until 62 (and 63 in some cases) when it was replaced by the 194/230/250/292 I6 motor that was originally introduced in the Chevy II. I have a 292 in my 64 C10 truck and it's a great motor.

Anyway, I think it's a great idea. And if all else fails, I could host it in html form (and a link to download a spreadsheet) on my web server. Let's keep it going.

Sounds good.

Unless there is a better way, how about we use those headings for each column and post info here separating columns with ">" so they can easily be added to the list.

No spaces before or after the ">".
eg
Eng Make>Type>Capacity>Induction>Kit Brand>Kit Description>Kit P/n
Cadillac>?>?>Supercharged>AMT>59 El Camino>?
Chev>6 Cyl>?>Carb>AMT>37 Chev Cabriolet>?
Chev>6 Cyl>?>Carb>AMT>51 Chev>?
Chev>6 Cyl>?>Carb>AMT>60 Chev P/u>?
Chrysler>Fire Power Hemi>?>Supercharged>AMT>53 Stude Starliner Cpe>?
Chrysler>Slant 6 Cyl>?>AMT/MPC>Deora>?
Chrysler>Firepower CrossRam (long)>?>?>Johan>68 Chrysler 300>?
Desoto>Fire Dome Hemi>?>Carb/fi x8>AMT>53 F-100>?
Desoto>Fire Dome>?>Eight carb x6>Monogram>Lil' Coffin>?
Ford>SOHC>427>2x4bbl>AMT>66 Galaxie>?
Ford>4 Cyl Winfield head>?>?>Revell>29 P/u>?
Generic>?>?>3x2bbl>AMT>49 Ford>?
Generic>?>?>4 or 6x3bbl>Revell>Parts Paks>?
Generic>?>?>3x2bbl>Revell>Parts Paks>?
Generic>?>?>Supercharded>Revell>Parts Paks>?
Pontiac>?>?>1x4bbl>Revell>56 F-100>?
Riley>2 port head (OHV)>?>?>Revell>31 Woody, Sedan>?

Is there any value to add column for scale? I think it would be good, and not much more effort in the first place.

I'll go thru my humble collection and post my stuff.

:lol:

Looking good.

How about adding column for scale?

All modelers would probably get use out of it.

Great idea guys. Maybe Gregg would let you pirate the engine (& tranny?) list out of the similar "Best of kit parts" from the Nov 2004 issue #100 of Model Cars Magazine.

I was recently thinking about the same kind of thing. Somewhere I have a list of the big truck motors from many of the big rig kits, I found someplace online last year. I'll try to find it and post the info here for whoever volunteers to compile this thing.

Great idea :P

I'm halfway thru listing my kits, and will email spreadsheet to Ray over next weekend.

Hopefully Ray will add it to the site.

If we all add a few, the list will soon become fairly comprehensive.

Great stuff, man. I look forward to the new info.

Just as an aside and since I haven't had a lotta feedback on what I've done, are folks ok with this format and the way I've described the motors? Any suggestions for improvement?

Thanks,

Aaron: Thanks for the truck engine data. I've added them to the web page.
http://www.chevyasyl...odelMotors.html

Just a quick question. I'm trying to find out the cylinder arrangement and displacement of the motors. I'm givin it my best shot, but could you double-check the web page to see if I need to make some corrections?

One other thing....I'm assuming all of these are turbocharged diesel motors....is that correct or are some of them supercharged or fuel injected only?

If anyone else has data to add, please sent it to me at rbuck@aros.net and I'll get it done as quickly as I can.

Yeah, that's gonna be a problem for maintaining the list.

I think it would be good for whoever submits the information to fill in the gaps. That's what is taking me so long, I'm doing it as I go, so as not to leave gaps.

There are some kits with alternate engines (eg MPC Daytona with 4cyl & V8 fwd) that don't give any info on what the alternate is, so there will be the odd blank.

This is starting to look good, one thing I noticed you mixed up the CAT 3406 and Cummins NHC250, everything is right until the notes section, the 3406 is a CAT the NHC250 is a Cummins.

Caterpillar
3208 10.4L (636 cid) V-8

3406 15.8L (964 cid) I-6

Cummins
NHC 250 14.0L (855 cid) I-6

NTA 370 14.0L (855 cid) I-6 Turbo

NTC 350 14.0L (855 cid) I-6 Turbo

V-903 14.8L (903 cid) V-8

N-14 14.0L (855 cid) I-6 Turbo


Detroit Diesel

Series 60 11.1L (677 cid) I-6 Turbo

8V71 9.3L (568 cid) V-8 (2 stroke)

8V71T 9.3L (568 cid) V-8 Turbo (2-stroke)

12V71T 13.9L (850 cid) V-12 Turbo (2-stroke)

16V71 18.6L (1132 cid) V-16 (2-stroke)


8V92 8.6L (522 cid) V8 (2-stroke)


Volvo

N10 10.0L (610 cid) Turbo

N-12 12.0L (732 cid) Turbo


Thats what I could find online. I could not find anything on the Int. V-800 but I'm 99% sure is is a gas motor, nothing on the Macks and could not find the configuration, # cyl on the Volvos. I'll post a link to this thread in the truck section to see if someone that really knows their truck engines (like Dieseldoc) will help out with the missing data and maybe more kit engines.
