taking my hemi apart shows me what can happen in 50 years......
So how many of the cylinders where sleeved. I think that is what I am seeing. Are the jug's true from top to bottom or is their wear. Keep us up on the rebuild. Always good to see what the other guy is doing. Where the heck is that beer assistant?????**&^%%
Think something is broken and went it’s one way put in 2 new sleeves will solve this new pistons bore it over sell my kidney to pay the machine guy and i am done........
There is no vin nr on my engine and on my trans anyone seen this before?
Production date is in line with build sheet.....
It is most likely a replacement block. Most 69 cars got blocks that were cast in 1966 they made way to many of them back then. Any assembly date stamped on the flat near the distributor, that would tell the tale.
This is also blank.... no scratching nothing
And the gear box is also without vin number
This should be the place for the engine nr
Looks like a good usable piece to me. Was this a running/driving engine before you tore it down? Have pressure checked for any casting issue for leaks. Nothing wrong with having a sleeve or two if they were done correctly. Hell, I have some racing buddies that all 8 holes are sleeved.
it runs when it came out but smokes like hell done some pressure testing now looks oke
will have a total rebuild in the coming weeks
I think my 440 came out of a camper or a bus
That is very possible dmartin. Sgt Lee took one out of a camper to put into a charger. So like the history of the 383 it was put into all kind's of service. As long as it runs drive it.
Hello seems to bee some coolant leeks in the block who where badly fixed in the past
This is fixed now have the new pistons waiting for the machine shop to bore and sleeve
Sounds like your getting it done Oscar. Know you will be glad when it is done. I feel your pain buddy. Every time I turn around finding more things I did not think I would have to buy. Keep at it and it will all work out.
Keep up the good work it takes a lot of patients with these old cars
That is one that got picked up in the USA and shipped over sea's.
Get here done Oscar. Making progress. I am green with envy buddy. Have not even started on the motor yet.
