Inline HEMI?

Hey gang,
got my gears working, if there are HEMI V8's, can there be an inline HEMI? Like a mopar flat six converted to a hemi if someone could make special heads? Has this conversion been done?


Just curious,

Mike

In the land down under, they used HEMI-6's. Pretty legendary engine down there. It was a cast-off Detroit design by Chrylser. But the stuck it in their Valiant-ish cars and made history.

Just look around under the engine section, I think.

Some four cylinders are hemi headed also. I know some of the European models are, not quite positive about Japanese, but wouldn't be surprised.

Hemi four

The Passat 1.8turbo is a hemi with 5 valves. My Alfa Romeo 1750 had a sweet hemi back in 1969 and even earlier. Gord

There were several OHV conversions done on T's and A's and not to forget the Ardun heads for the flathead ford..So yes it can be done and it has been done..

Chrylser used Mitsubishi four-cylinders in the Eightie's that had Hemi-heads on them. Some of them may even have been badged as "HEMI".

Rod and Custom had this big section about Rice-Banger powered T-buckets in the new issue(Stole my idea), it mentioned the hemi-headed ones.

There used to be a number of european ones,Jag(6), Aston Martin(6),Alfa Romeo(4&6),Fiat (4) as well as BMW and a bunch more if I engage the ol' noggin. But let us not forget my favorite from the early 60s, the Jeep (that's right) OHC Hemi six, I think it was called a "Tornado". Pretty trick engineering for an american mfg. in the early 60s, especially Jeep.

BMW designed a dual rocker head for the British inline Bristol engine. It used two pushrods in series to actuate the exhaust valves.
