bikeseamus is on a distinguished road
Default Totota Hemi engine


I am in the process of rebuilding a Toyota Alloy Block Hemi that was removed from one of their domestic market limousines.

No one anywhere in the US has one shred of parts availability for this little hand assembled masterpiece, and it is a little frustrating, seeing as how this mill was made from 1967 and into the nineties, in three different displacements.

I have hooked it up to a built Ford C4 automatic, and it is sitting in a 32 Ford Body... all mocked up very nicely.

I innovated a 440 Dodge distributor cap and rotor to work on the ND Distributor, and the little fella runs like a scalded dog... all cool, but it leaks coolant and oil... not cool.

I will upgrade to a complete Crane MSD ignition system, because my engine came with points, but to complete this Muroc Style Street Rod.

I need to buy a good quality gasket set for it, and have hit a wall.

Anyone who might have connections in Japan or anywhere else to acquire a gasket set for me would be rewarded with my gratitude and incumbent renumeration.

I never forget favors. Thanks, Jim
