  • 84, Try asking at the sites below. Iirc, *someone* offered an adapter to bolt the '68 up engines to the '67 and older, but you could probably just use the '68 up TH400.

  • Eric, Afaik, the rwd car pan from the 368 is same as the rwd pan from a 425. It'll work, but the pu tube from a 368 may not work on a 472/500. If not, you could buy a new pu tube for a '77-'79 425 rwd car. If your 368 pan is the weird eldo pan with welded sump, I have no idea if the pu tube will work on a 472/500.

  • ljloffice, Yes, but I'm not sure that the 4100 is a good candidate. With that said, the turbo from the 3.8 is probably good for more than 300 horse worth of air, but it'll be much happier at 250-275 worth.

  • jgrh64, The "universal" mount kits sold by various vendors aren't wirth the money, imo. Just use rubber mounts from the engine, and fab whatever you need to go to the frame. The special pilot bushing is sold by various vendors for $20 or so. The stick flywheel is $300 or so. [ouch] You can use a bop bell, as long as it has the cut-out for the starter on the proper side. You can use...

  • RGermain, It'll work very well. On a 5 or so horse engine, like a go-cart, etc. Dave wrote: > > I read somewhere that somone used a smog pump as a > sort of supercharger. > > Using the output from the air pump to pressurize the > intake air > > --- Pollorey wrote: > > > Take the vanes out of the pump....it then acts like > > an idler pulley....not > > hard to do > >

  • Willys, Good deal. A set of KNs or e-bay Ross pistons, and you'll have a 10-1 compression bad boy. Dave hey thanks dave they have the heart shaped chambers.and the > stroke says its a 500

  • willys57pu, The 68-73 heads have a heart shaped chamber. A 74 -76 head will have a sort of a "D" shaped chamber. The 74-76 500 piston will be almost a flat top, with a very shallow, round, flat bottom recess of apx 2.5" diameter. If it does not have such a piston, it's either a pre '74 500, or a 472. Btw - I assume that you've measured the stroke, and it is 4.304" [almost 4 & 5/16...

  • Daniel, You are correct, rws cars were 472" in '74 [and before]. I stand corrected. I should have proof-read my post. Tony, The factory does odd things sometimes, but according to every expert out there, the 500 was eldo only in '70. [and '71, 72, 73 and '74].

  • willys57pu, '68-'73 heads [both 472 and 500] are 76cc. The 500" did not come in rwd cars until '74, so if your engine is a 73 500, it had to come out of an eldorado. 74 472, and '74 -'76 500 heads are 120cc.
