    Yup, EarlyHemi. If you clean them up real good they will say Hurst unless they are re-pops lilke mine which are not marked.
    They also fit on early Cad blocks....

    Cool..... didn't realize that Trans adapt have been around that long.
     
  8. They could be for Cadillac if the block mounting holes are 7/16", or Chrysler if the block mounting holes are 1/2" diameter. there was a guy in Massachussets that was making re-pop Hurst mounts for Oldsmobiles, and Chryslers. I don't know if he is still making them.

    No way to know how many folks have made the various Hurst mounts. I have been making the EarlyHemi piece for about 10 years.

    Pretty sure they went into business just after the automobile transmission was invented.;)

    Although the instructions only list the Chrysler engines, these would fit the Dodge and Desotos as well, right?

    Not likely , as far as I have found absolutely no parts are the same between the 3. I own a Chrysler and a desoto. Of course neither are running yet so I'm far from an expert

    Well the bellhousing pattern is the same (excluding the extended bell), so it's possible the mounts are as well.

    Ears on the blocks (51-58)(Hemi, poly and A) are the same.
    The distance from the back of the block to the ears as well as the distance from engine centerline are different between the three.

    "The distance from the back of the block to the ears as well as the distance from engine centerline are different between the three."

    What in tarnation were the Chrysler engineers thinking? Make work projects?
     
  22. Who knows, maybe the engineers gave all the different divisions basic blueprints with no sizes or numbers on them? o_O

    When I first started reading up about these early Hemis many years ago I marveled at how the Chrysler Corporation could afford to design, engineer and build three series of engines that were all slightly different, so all the blocks, cranks, etc. had to be independently made up.

    Maybe the transmission department laid down the law and said "only one bellhousing pattern!" Well other than the integral style, of course.
