You forgot the 392 :D I have never heard of a 350 or 361 dodge either. I just never got in to dodges. I was always a chevy guy.

the 392 was an early Hemi, its in the same family as the 331, 354, 392

I've always been a 60-66 and 67-72 chevy truck guy but have lots of Mopar in my blood

Well of course you already know I want a stick truck. I'm much more familar with the inside of a manual than the sloppy auto. Is that too much to ask for? I just might be interested though in a 400 stick truck or possibly an auto. As long as it's not a short wheel base truck.

Keep it coming guys. I enjoy the history lessons on the old Dodges and motors.

FWIW if you do do it 440source has there own big block aluminum heads for 899 assembled. a got brought some in the other day to the shop for us to work on. alot of room there to port . the only thing is you gotta open up the outside intake holes fot the pushrods if you run a hefty cam. (thats why he brought them in for us) al though they are limited on HP so if you want some really good big block heads i would straight to indy and get there B1 heads.By far the most superior big block mopar heads without spending boat loads of money. also just take a 400 block and put a hemi crank in it. if your lucky and spend some time looking you can find a billit top fuel crank an ebay for about 4-500 that is used. it might have a couple stress cracks but i know guys that run them in bracket cars and have no problems what so ever with them cause there made to handle 8000 HP top fuel cars. just a thought hope that helps out some.

A friend of mine has an early 80's 3/4 ton he wants to get rid of. Its in mid project stage with a 383 and a 4spd. I've got a few complete 440s and there was a pair of "906" heads in the local paper here last week for sale. It'd be a pretty good drive though. :shock:

You better just stop and find out. He'll be on that like white on rice on a paper plate with a glass of milk. ;)
It's right in his price range, which is cheap! :lol:

Just enough power to break everything behind the crankshaft.

I don't know much about that vintage. I imagine finding parts for that style would be even harder than the 70's trucks? I wouldn't mind knowing the particulars though.

Michael, and the rest of ya's, I've 'somewhat' located a 73 or 74 W300 dually, 70's front and rear, divorced 205, small block and 4 speed. I talked to the guy a little. He wants to sell it but doesn't know yet ;) :lol: . I figure this would be a good starter? Get me a big block motor and bellhousing, then be in business?

well i can tell from what i have seen on the truck you shouldnt need to locate any body panels as it appears to be a very solid truck. i should be able to stop and check it out good and possibly talk to the guy tomorrow and find out more.

Big block, bellhousing, clutch and flywheel. You'll need to have some truck/big block motor mounts, and a rear sump oil pan. If you can't find any locally, I think I can fix you up. I need to check my stash.

Start shopping Moparts.com and look for a motor. I don't have a spare, ready to run motor for you, Bill.

*IF* you get the truck, and its indeed a dually, be prepared for the whiners to start complaining about dual rear wheels being a "huge" advantage. :roll: There will likely be places that make you pull off the outer rears before they let you pull. Its not prevelant in the diesel classes around here, but the gasser street guys get pretty grumpy about it, not me though. I figure if a dually gets around me, its not because of the tires on the rear, its probably whats under the hood.
