    Starter Relay and Voltage Regulator

    The alternator I am using is a one wire alternator that says 'internal regulator'. Does this mean I do not need to include a voltage regulator elsewhere?

    Starter Relay and Voltage Regulator

    I am trying to set up a Mopar electronic ignition system (part. no. 440-427 for 383, 4-pin). Going into an old 50 Ply. Coupe. This is all new to me. Does this system require an external voltage regulator or starter relay? The instructions mention neither. If so, how should they be wired into...

    383 Intake Bolts

    Anyone know the length intake bolts should be? The motor I have, has a mish-mash of bolts on rocker covers, manifolds, etc. I'm buy new bolts and don't have original fasteners on the motor to go by. Thanks

    Alternator Bolt Hole

    Right. That is kinda what I am concerned about. I am trying to get this motor running on the stand so I can get it set up in the car, then planning to rebuild it. I may try making a bracket first to mount on the head. I'll post pics, IF it works. LOL

    Alternator Bolt Hole

    I'll get a pic. this weekend when I am back out where the car is. The hole is 'hogged' to the extent that it looks like someone tried to drill it out. It is oblong at this point and the bolt is snapped off about 1/2 deep and I can see where they tried to drill into the bolt. If I try a heli-coil...

    Alternator Bolt Hole

    Looks like the alternator bolt hole on the front of the pass. side head of my 383 is hogged out with what appears to be the broken end of the holt about a half inch deep. Anyone have any luck repairing this with a heli coil, ez lock or Time Sert? Also, thought about making a bracket utilizing...

    383 Oil Pick Up Tube

    I like the Teflon tape idea before trying another cut. Anyone know if the basic white Teflon tape will be ok used here without problems from oil or heat?

    383 Oil Pick Up Tube

    So, like many others, I had to cut some length off a new pickup tube. It was about 1/2 inch too long so I cut it and ran a thread cleaner on it so it screws in nicely. However, all the way in and tight it is about 180 deg. from where it needs to be. I have to turn it counter clock wise to fit...

    ProForm 440-427 Distributor Set Up

    Thanks for the info. Looks like mine didn't. This is a motor I'm putting in an old coupe and I'm sure the people at the parts store won't have a clue what to look for. Anyone know if I go to the local parts store what I would ask for? Is there part no. or a certain year/car rotor I should...

    ProForm 440-427 Distributor Set Up

    Got this for my 383. First time dealing with pointless ignition. I don't see a rotor under the cap or in the box with the other stuff. Do these things not use a rotor?

    Gaskets and Sealer

    OK. I do have a can of Permatex High Tack Gasket Sealant (80062). Just didn't know if different parts required different stuff. Been decades since I have done a motor and there are way more products and process these days. Looks like this stuff will work for all of it. Thanks Guys.

    Gaskets and Sealer

    I'm updating a long block for a 383 big block. Is there a guide or resource to consult as to which gaskets need sealer and what kind to use for a new water pump and housing, timing chain cover, fuel pump, oil pump and oil pan? Thanks

    Exhaust Manifold Pipe

    I need to get the flange/pipe that attaches directly to the factory exhaust manifold on a 383. The motor is going in a 1950 Plymouth so I have to make the exhaust system but can't find what the piece is called or who supplies it. Anyone have any info I can use?

    Compression Check

    OK, thanks for the info!

    Compression Check

    Is it possible to check compression by hand turning the crank using a breaker bar or does it need to be spun up faster via a starter? (My motor is on a stand and I don't have a starter yet but when I tried turning by hand I couldn't get any readings. However, the timing chain is really...

    Headman Headers

    OK, I got the bolts that came with the headers but was going to try to avoid pulling the studs from the heads and just get some bolts. It is the size of the bolts I am looking for. So far, looks like they may be 3/8 course or fine.

    Headman Headers

    I got a set of Headman block huggers for my 68 383 going into my Coupe. The motor is an hour away from where I live and want to know what size bolts I will need for the exhaust manifold studs? The motor didn't come with any. What nuts size fits? Also, can I use the studs or will I need to...
