    it would be cool BUT i think you will have alot in a old 392 as of now i hear getting main bearings are hard to find ? MIKE P would know .but a big rat will do just fine and alot less money and will work much better for bang for the buck .if the 392 is any thing like the old buick nail head i am doing right now parts are VERY pricy but if you have deep pockets ? i will sell this to you 731 CID HC DONOVAN BAD MUTHER F C K E R 11.500 deck this will make all them ford guys run

    I think the water pump/timing chain cover on my 331 weighed around 50lbs. Each iron head is 75lbs or so, cast iron intake manifold at 40lbs.

    Hot Heads used to have a table on their web site that showed the early Hemi's weight with their aluminum heads, intake, and chevy water pump. I want to say it was in the 525-550lb range complete.

    Cheers, Mark

    .....Mark, early Hemi's were small blocks??? I had no idea, I thought I read somewhere that the 392's were really heavy. I guess not!

    Pat, yes a big block Chev would be more 'bang for the buck' but I want the killer looks of a hemi!!!

    Wow! I LIKE the looks of the old style Hemi that Hemi T coupe posted! The one with the blower in the rail! That would/will look AWESOME in my '32!!!
