The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den
Thanks John. I just recently checked the 59 Plymouth brochure and learned that a 4bbl 318 poly engine was standard issue in the Sport Fury. That means that I have to create the 4bbl intake manifold for this project. It'll give me a chance to check the fit in a model as the frame is from the AMT 58 Belvedere.
This project has been shelved since, well, pretty much since the last post. What happened was that I unknowingly left the body in 91% alcohol overnight. As you can guess, complete disaster. Last week, I scored a perfect Excel hard top on the bay and received it Saturday. Today I have a beautiful resin copy I cast and am now ready to finish this project.
The difference between the image size and stl. outline seen in the front view is due to adjustments made to compensate for resin shrinkage and printer calibration. After the block was printed, it was checked against the 340 LA engine in the 71 Duster. Same size.
So because of this I would bet the 392 block would be pretty close the same length of that Poly is its done right as they were built to interchange! There was only 2 Poly-Head block that were unable to interchange with Hemi Heads, the 277 and the 318..... And there was only ONE Hemi block that Poly Heads weren't made for, and that was the 392...... Just because the deck height of the 392 block was higher and that makes the need to have a different intake! The 277 & 318 Are A engines. My engine is an A engine. Per your on words, the heads won't fit. In creating a usable 3d file, mega research has to be done in order to make it as precise and accurate as you can. Here is the contents of my poly engine folder:
The Chrysler 392 hemi is a long engine measuring 30" and won't work. The A engine is inches shorter. To compensate for the shortness of the poly A engine, the heads were designed with the upper most part holding the rocker assembly larger than the deck length of the block. The LA engines are most likely longer. Here are the 318 A engine poly heads:
What cad program did you use? Blender If you make a 2-bbl intake for this, put me down for at least 2-3 of these. I'll make the manifold and either Carter ball & ball or DDB carb. Maybe both. Will there be transmission or is the idea to use the 300C unit? I used the 300 trans as it is available now.
