One of the big hurdles I encountered when doing my retro fit…and one that I found a hassle when pondering a change to forged pistons, was what were the parts I actually needed!!
The following list is designed to help the guys who may not have the benefit of an experienced Gen 3 engine builder, but need to get some parts lined up on the table to do stuff.
The list is split into four sections – sections –Basic technical specs of a standard stroke 6.1 hemi rotating assembly – Parts to complete a retro fit using carbs – a list of gaskets and fasteners you’ll need for any tear down or cam change – and some parts suggestions for an internal rebuild for a stroker or just a stronger standard stroke motor.
These lists are NOT comprehensive, but will at least give you an idea of what’s available and who makes what.
