I'm not sure how many people have been benefitting from you threads but I must say that you rock!
I'm working on a Desoto 291 for my "A" and you have unearthed a treasure chest of knowledge and information for all to share.
Thank You!

With my unofficial count of 73 Hemi owners and 150ish Hemis here on the HAMB, I would say that the Hemi tech threads are more than worth the effort put fourth and very much appreciated. Thanks! Axeman39.

Thanks guys!! I appreciate the nice words! I'm glad they're helping someone. I know they're certainly helping me!! I've been spending so much time just trying to get the subjects up that I've hardly had time to even read them! I'm excited to sit down and start taking notes myself. The HAMB rules and with the amount of Hemi knowledge on here the HEMI Tech threads should rule too!

Thanks for the help gathering info everyone! We still have a long way to go!

BTW... This isn't just for Chrysler FirePowers! We need info on Dodge, DeSoto, the poly motors, the small cube Hemis... EVERYTHING!

Default Re: HEMI Tech- INDEX

Just wanted to bump this up for you guys. I added a couple catagories for your viewing pleasure. It will take some time to get all these catagories filled out, but the topics are started. If anyone thinks of a topic that's NOT coverd here, let me know or start it with "HEMI Tech- xxxxxxxx" and I'll add it to the "Index". Just check to make sure it's not covered. Had some thoughts of some other ideas like Video rentals and things of that nature for resources. Have to figure out how to handle those yet. Not sure if that will be addressed in these or not.

We'll get there!

In the mean time, check out Harmonic Balancers and Identification and see if there is any factual information you can add!

Cheers!
Scooter

Just wanted to bump this up in case it hasn't been seen yet. Let me know if there is any way I can add or improve what's already been started.

Also... there are some subjects still virtually blank. If there is any info anyone can add to those sections, please do so. This seems to have been a great thing for anyone needing Hemi info thus far...

Bumping the Index back up to the top since there has been a lot of Hemi talk lately. Still trying to keep these updated. If anyone sees information that can be linked to under these topics, please add it.

THANKS!

Going to bump this up so you guys can take a look at the topics and see if there's anything we can add. We have very little in several catagories. Amazingly the HEMI Tech- Examples and specs!
has very little in it. Hopefully those of you with Hemis completed or in the works can kick us down some pictures with specs. Maybe even links to your build or something.

Thanks guys!

Going to bump the Index back up to the top. I updated the intake/exhaust thread with a link to some Offy 6x2 stuff. Maybe some of you will have some fresh new thoughts and info to add somewhere to some of the other topics involving Hemis.

Keep the info coming! Some of these topics are looking pretty bare and need more discussion.

Cheers!

Thread the flange for 1/2-20 and use bolts instead of the oem bolt/nut setup.

Check with HH they have the fex plate bolts which are 7/16 with nuts or the 1/2-20 for tapped cranks. You can tap your crank to use the 1/2-20 the holes are the right size to run the 1/2-20 tap through. Just make sure they are tapped straight.

Hey guys, drop these questions and answers about flexplates here:

These are good questions and good answers, but won't help too many people here. Better posted here. THANKS!

Well... we haven't talked about Hemis enough lately... so let's see bump this Index back up so you guys can add to some of these threads where possible.

Been thinking about adding a reference for machine shops in everyone's area going state by state. Please let me know what you guys think about it. Last time I brought it up it got a good response, but it was brought up very unofficially. So shoot me a PM if you think it's something worthwhile or bump this back up.

Also, I still haven't done much with feature builds for this section and I've been seeing some very nice progress on a few builds. I may need a kick in the rear or a reminder of who's building what so I can get some featured Hemi builds up for everyone's reference and reading pleasure!

Thanks everyone!
Scooter

I was doing a search back in 2004 on hotheads swap meet forum for shops in my area SE Michigan and got a few hits which are Thomson Automotive in Redford, Mi (313-538-0044) and also Dowker engines in Charlotte, Mi (517-543-0249) and one finale one is Angelucci Performance Macomb, Mi (586-412-8442) I personally have not done business with any of them just wanted a source if I did need one down the road.

Thanks man! It looks like I better start a thread on this so there is a set place to post this info. I'll do it state by state in a few. The thread will probably get VERY big. Let me think about the best way to handle all the info that will be posted. Maybe I'll do it by alphabetic sections or something. It will take a lot of effort to get it filled out and will take everyone's support here. I will get started on it though.

Thanks!
