So it has been a little bit on this one. I have been jumping around on different builds to get some of them "up to snuff" and to bring them up to par with details and on a few their getting some changes done to them, like this one for instance! I just got it out one day and looked at it to see what else I needed to collect for parts to pick up where I left off on the build..... And got to looking at the engine and well, it was GREAT, for a time, BUT I as mentioned in a previous posting, wasn't 100% happy with the original engine, it needed something........ MORE! Well as posted, I pulled out the parts for that engine the 2nd one, and bagged it up and put it in with the truck., Well within the last day, I was bored a little with all the "common" stock building I been doing and needed some PLASTIC HORSEPOWER.... So let the engineering rage flow. right into be what your all about to see with this build! Engines, is the same basic engine, that I had originally started with, the AMT 426 DOHC Hemi.... Same basic principals too, DUAL EVERYTHING. (almost) in some cases will be QUAD! As you'll see! -BUT I am thinkin' to change the engine size from a "426" to a "528" just because of the like I have remembering when the 528 Hemi came out in the early to mid 1990's.... Laid out to show the parts, I am adding a different Intake! As it sets on the engine after being assembled, its not glued, its merely just setting there! The Intake however is going to be a whole other ball-game, I'm adding DUAL 14-71 blowers in-place of the original DUAL 6-71's I had originally went on to use, till now! Then, I began more assembly to the engine! The heads, are my resin castings! I used my own castings to leave the factory AMT ones for "work bench detail" as they are nicely detailed parts, and on an engine those same details won't be seen! I also added the oil filter and such to the block, for painting purposes. BUT that filter will NOT be on the engine as I thought this wasn't the greatest place for a "competition" engine! So having said that, The oil filters (YES 2 of them) larger ones, will be on the frame somewhere! So after basic assembly, I got right to painting the engine! The block got stock Mopar Hemi Orange, the heads this time around will represent those of the real thing and be cast Aluminum. The valve covers seen here, are only "placed" for building. They aren't glued and I did NOT choose to use my resin ones for this build anyway, (I opted to use the AMT factory ones for a reason as you'll see in a few updates from now!) BUT, my resin ones are PERFECT for "sizing" things to fit! The black timing chain cover is just gloss black as its to be chromed!!!! SO thats one step ahead on the chroming of it.... -Also notice the oil filter has been cut off as well. As I said, those will be mounted else where other then on the engine! Engine side shots. The block will not be getting the mechanical fuel pump (I'm using an electric looking fuel pump), as the oil filters will be on the frame with the fuel pump! SO, there will be a black plate cover for that area of the block. And speaking of that area, the timing chain recess, is NOT the stock one from AMT. That part came from Lindberg, off the Little Red Wagon kit, as it was chrome, BUT I didn't want it chrome as far as the block section, that part the extends out from the block was actually part of the block so it got stripped and was painted to look like part of the block, and then I chose to re-chrome the cover only, which is the part painted in gloss black! Front of the block showing the timing chain cover a little better. Also, notice no water pump! I'll also be using a electric water pump as well, a detail part from a Drag Racing engine will be used where the cam would normally be behind the timing chain cover. As mentioned the intake will be completely different from the first & second engine! -I forgot to mention this engine has been changed 3 times now. The first 2 engines were from the SAME engine, just stripped down and rebuilt, this time, the whole thing is being replaced! But, the intake as you see it, is a 2 piece "medium" rise Tunnel-Ram, thats gonna have A LOT done different to it! -As you'll see during the build. In these last 2 pictures however the intake is merely just "placed" and is not in-place to stay. I sat it in place to get some pictures to give something for those watching to ponder as it all comes together! This is one of my resin castings! And so is the 2nd part to it, but I have yet to get good pics of that part and whats to come of it. BUT, having sat and looked at it in the pics, myself, I think the color of the intake is going to be Testors Model Masters Metalizer "Magnesium" polished and coated, to look like a competition light weight part, as when done, its gonna be a rather BIG intake, as you'll see in a few updates! (Probably the nest one as I get the intake done for pics!) Thanks for looking, as always, comments welcome ENJOY!
