02-06-2011 12:59 PM 1930u Header Flanges
I have not been working on the Plymouth to much this winter. I plan to get back at it in a month or two. I've really just been getting some odd and end things together so that when I start the engine build it will go smoothly. I have made a little progress on the header flanges. I actually have two sets now. Fortunately I have a buddy that has access to a half million $ computer laser milling machine. It made easy work to produce the 7/16" ss flanges.

Here are a few pictures of the latest set of flanges with the Hemi D-port and a transition nipple. The primaries are going to be 2". Can't make the headers until the engine is in.

Here's the rods and pistons. The stock rods have been reconditioned, shot peened and re-bushed. With the light pistons and mild boost the rods should be good for the application.

Over the last 5 years I've been gathering parts for the Hemi. The parts are hard to find and costly for a 392, so I had to pace the purchases over a long period of time. I also had all the machine work done along the way.

The blower pistons are .060 over Arias. These $uckers cost a fortune. I could have got off cheaper but I wanted durability and I may try to run this thing on hydrogen at some point in the future. Here's a old and new pic.

I will be dragging the Hemi out of the corner this weekend. Can't wait to get the engine in the cradle.
