Hey guys, since my 68 Camaro is a reliable running driving Pro Tour car with minimal stuff left to do to it, i'm getting myself into a new project, a 1951 Plymouth Cranbrook Belvedere. The car has been modified over the years and currently has a 413 big block Chrysler and automatic trans. With the car comes a 331 Hemi. My plan is to build the Hemi and put in place of the 413. I know nothing about these cars or the early Hemi so i'll be leaning on you guys for your help. Thanks in advance.

My knowledge of Hemi engines is very limited. But here's something I've heard from some die hard friends, and just now confirmed at Wikipedia:

"Three of the four Chrysler divisions had their own version of the FirePower engine, with different displacements and designations, and having almost no parts in common. This lack of commonality was due in part to the three engine versions using different bore pitches (the center-to-center distance between adjacent cylinders)."

Nice to know when parts-hunting!
Thanks, I have a lot to learn
