    I got the engine mount stands made and am still working on getting the LH upper housing mount made. Little by little I guess.

    That Hemi looks really good in there Ryan. Looks like you’re going to be in the same place I was with clearance between the crank pulley and rack,……close but adequate and almost a straight drop from the PS pump to the fitting on the PS rack.

    I don’t know if you’ve figured out pulleys yet (looks like you’ve already changed out the upper one). A 3 or 4 groove BB Mopar lower pulley will bolt to the crank hub. I’m running a 3 groove on mine and using the outer groove for the belt.

    If you’re interested the Federal (Mopar) PS pump I’m running on mine worked out good as far as pressure and turning the rack. I think there are some decent pictures in my build thread on how I adapted it to work on the Hemi.

    That is going to be so neat when you get it going.

    I did get mine aligned this week and was planning on trying to get a couple of small things taken care of so I could start driving it. That plan lasted until I get home to find a dust devil had gone thru the arena and taken the roofs on some of the tack buildings. The fun never ends around here.

    It's all looking good to me, it reminds me of stuffing my 348 in the 53.

    Mike, sorry to hear of the dust devil damage.

    I think I got a big block mopar pulley for the bottom pulley per your Hemi Tech Info posts. (thanks again for those) I think I've got it in my cupboard of parts for the 40. Maybe some day I'll get to that point of installing the 340 balancer and installing the pulley. I'll have to check out your thread for the PS pump. I have a GM Saginaw one I was going to adapt to it but that was just plan A.

    I haven't had any time for the 40 lately. Between work, and getting ready for another kiddo, my brother moving and needing help moving, and the 3 kids, there's not much extra time. I always think of stuff I want to do or change on the car. I came up with an idea to make a bat wing air cleaner for on top of my carbs. I surely won't buy one for what they want for one. Then I had an idea. What has the similar shape as a bat wing air cleaner? The belt guards on a lawn mower deck! Luckily I have a friend that has over 150 lawn mowers. He had some extra guards laying around. I purchased 4 of them and will cut them how I need them to make my own air cleaner.

    Now I have to decide how I want to do the actual air cleaners. the original ones have a housing around them and are under each side of the bat wing. I have an idea to get a couple of air cleaners off a Farmall H tractor, and modify them to hold 2 3" elements. Cut the bottoms to allow the air to be drawn through the covers. Or, get 2 6" or 7" air cleaner assemblies. Use them and attach one under each side of the bat wing. 2 7" air cleaners should allow for enough flow. I've found some high flow filters I think will work. I can't really do anything until I get the top built though so it all looks proportionate.

    I gotta be straight with ya, I think what you said can be done and it would be unique, but those bat wing air filters would have to be pretty expensive before I would go through the work you explained. On another note, he has 150 old lawnmowers? And does this mean your going to sell me that T/A shaker you have ?

    The T/A Shaker I have got smashed in shipping and I got stuck with all of the extra pieces to it for no extra charge.... I haven't seen any bat wing air cleaners for less than a grand. I've been looking for a while.

    I'd like to make it look similar to the black one but we'll see.

    looks like it is going to be heavy. Nothing the hemi can't handle, I'm sure.

    That is one thing I am worried about but I'm hoping I can add some support straps on the sides in the middle to help stabilize it. I haven't held an original one but i'm guessing they were pretty heavy too.

    Reminds me of my 73 dodge charger: to get RT grill and headlights, it was cheaper to get a whole car. You can't touch a complete RT grill assebly for under a grand.
