Can any one tell me if a 291 desoto have harden valve seats.
Soft seats and valves. Designed for leaded fuel of the 1950's
We have a 291 in the shop now if you want to come and look at it apart. You are not that far away.
We are upgrading to hard seats and stainless valves for the customer.
Call me if you have any questions: Matt
In theory they should have them, or they were available on all hemis through '55.
Frontenginedragster are you doing a stock rebuild or are you upgrading cam and pistons. I was thinking of finding a 4x2 intake upgrading pistons and cam. I am looking for ideas.
Huh? Through 55 or from 55 on....?
Would like to know too 'cause I have a 291 Fireflite in the garage....
All pre '56 should have them. '56 & later only Truck, Chr 300 & "power package".
