=====================================================================
INTRODUCTION
============
This is pretty much the final edition of the Engine Chart.  While
there is no doubt that things can be added, it's getting pretty
big.

What started out as an innocent confusion on my part between the 3.8
and the 3.9 Chrysler V6's has turned into quite the pile of numbers.
Engines from 1914 to the present are listed.

These are assorted engines that have appeared in various Chrysler
built or sold vehicles.  These include Plymouth, Dodge, DeSoto,
Chrysler, Imperial, Hillman, Sunbeam, Rootes, Simca, Talbot, Jeep
and Fargo.

Maxwell, Chalmers, Nash and Hudson are not included.

Contributors, some unwitting.

There's also those I've forgotten. :/

There may well be engines missing.

Some of the engines are named the way they are because I don't know
the designation, so I just listed the first car that particular
engine family appeared in (eg:  K-Car for the 2.2 and 2.5)

I would consider an engine to be in the same family if it shared
major component (oil pumps, water pumps, say) and had the same bore
centers.  Thus, B's and RB's are the same family.

Some engine groups (the Europeans come to mind) are not split into
families, even though I'm quite certain that there were indeed
families.  I just don't have the info.

Measurments are Imperial (SAE) or SI, depending ...  A 318 is a 318
is a 318, even though it's now called a 5.2.  The 3.9l V6, which is
a 318 V8 with two cylinders surgically removed, has always been
called the 3.9 and not its' Imperial displacement of ~238 CID.  The
3.9 has its' bore and stroke given in inches (like the 318) but its
displacement in litres.  Confusion does not reign, it pours.
Generally, whatever the original designations was, is the one that
is used.

=====================================================================
STUFF NEEDED
============
Anybody know anything about Chrysler outboards?  ;-)
How about SnowRunners (is that the name?) for that matter?
Does Volvo-Penta have anything to do with Chrysler?
Anyone have extra info on the Cummins?
Could one of the Fordnatics get the Bore and Stroke of the
260 and 289 and the Flathead V8?
The proper designation of several engines would be nice.

=====================================================================
STUFF LEFT OUT
==============
The main thing that is left out is the horsepower (or for that
matter kw/h) ratings of the engines. These ratings varied over
the years as compression ratios waxed and waned and as emmission
regulations took their strangle hold.

The ratings also varied with carburation, cam timing and all
those assorted goodies near and dear to a gear-head's heart.

This thing is big enough as it is, without listing every possible
power rating that, say, a 383 (which one?) ever had.

=====================================================================
PAINT COLOURS
=============
   While this colour chart could be considered fairly accurate,
   never say never when it comes to what is and what isn't.  If this
   chart says that there's no way your engine should be this
   particular colour, but it is, and you know it left the factory
   that way, well...  You're right.

a. Black (P4120753).
   All production Jeep engines, as well as 2.2L engines since 81 and
   318 and 360 engines since 83.

b. Race Hemi Orange (P4120751).
   A bright orange colour used on Max Wedge engines (413 and 426
   Cross Ram) during 1962-64. Also used on 426 Race Hemis built
   in 64-65.

c. Street Hemi Orange (P4349216).
   A reddish-orange colour used on 426 Street Hemis built in 1966-71.
   Commonly referred to as "Hemi Orange."  1969-71, high performance
   383 and 440 engines, and 1970-71, 340 engines were also painted in
   this colour.

d. Turquoise (P4120752).
   This medium blue-green colour was used on all B/RB big block
   engines during 1962-71. Also used on LA 340's in 69

e. Red (P4349218).
   This is the bright red colour used on all 273 engines from
   1964-69 Also, the 1968-69 340 engines and most mid-1960s (and
   later) 318 engines were finished in this colour.  A lot of the
   60's slant 6's were painted this colour also.

   The "red" paint mentioned above is NOT THE SAME as the "red" that
   MP sells, nor does commercially available (Krylon, Plasti-Cote)
   "Chrysler Red" paint match the original colour on many '60-'69
   Slant-6s".

   There is an exact match for the slightly orangish red used on
   some 60-69 \6 engines.  NAPA farm equipment spray paint,
   International-Harvester red.  Made by Martin-Senour(sp?) paints,
   available through NAPA.

f. Blue (P4349217).
   This medium blue colour was used on all production engines from
   1972-1983 with the exception of the 2.2L engine.  Most 318 engines
   built from the late 1960s through 1972 were painted this colour.

g. Yellow (P4529144).
   Despite what the MP catalogue says, this colour was ONLY used on
   truck \6s, from mid '63 to mid '69.

h. Aluminum Silver (P4529148).
   This colour was used as far back as the 1940s and as late as the
   early 1960s.  Most of the early Hemis and 1950s engines were
   painted this colour.
   Silver was also used on all the flathead 6's except that
   the performance option in the 30's included a high compression
   head that was painted bright red. (Plymouth Testa Rossa? -- Cool)

i. Gold Metallic (P4529149).
   The "Golden Lion" engines of the late 50s and early 60s as well
   as the "Golden Commando" and DeSoto "Adventurer" engines used the
   colour.

j. Blue (colour code never appeared in manuals)
   Slightly darker then the standard blue used on the 70's LA
   engines. Paint also turned Turquoise with heat. Even Galen
   does not have a spec for mixing.

   This paint was used on a lot of 340' and other LA engines
   in late 69.

   Most of us use Blue (P4349217) to repaint and the judges agree.


=====================================================================
HANDY FORMULAE
==============
Displacement = PI * (bore / 2)^2 * stroke * cylinders

CID   = cc / 16.387
CID   = litre * 1000 / 16.387
litre = cc / 1000
litre = CID * 16.387 / 1000
* Watch for significant digits and rounding, esp. litres
* Make sure bore and stroke figures are both in the same units.
 (Inches, mm, cm, furlongs, whatever)
* When calculating metric engines, and bore/stroke numbers are in
  millimeters, divide the final result by 1000 to get the
  displacement in cc instead of mm^3.

eg: LA 318, bore     : 3.91 inches
            stroke   : 3.31 inches
            cylinders: 8

Displacement: 3.1416 * (3.91 / 2)^2 * 3.31 * 8 = 317.95 ~= 318 CID

In Litres  : 318 * 16.387 / 1000 = 5.211 ~= 5.2 Litres

CHRYSLER ENGINE VIN CODES
=========================
Version 1.4

Compiled by: Ed Hennessy, 
Sources: Hembree Blue Book (1966-1967)
         Hollander VIN Decoder (1968- )
Thanks to David Wright  and Lynn Travers of
the Shelby Dodge Auto Club MidWest  for 1966 and
turbo corrections.  Chrysler's TC by Maserati info courtesy George
Kulp .

Engine type is coded in Chrysler VINs beginning in 1966.  Prior to
'66, the VIN only distinguished a 6 cylinder model from an 8
cylinder model.  Chrysler used two VIN systems.  The first, used
from 1966-1980, has 13 digits, and the engine code is the 5th digit.
The second has 17 digits and the engine code is the 8th digit.  As
usual, there's an exception.  Chrysler's TC by Maserati has the
engine VIN digit in the *fifth* position.

(Jeep used the AMC system until a few years after Chrysler acquired
it.  Jeep then switched to the Chrysler conventions.  See below.)

Knowing the year of the car is often necessary to determine which
engine code to use.  The year is coded in the 6th (13-digit system)
or the 10th digit.  (In both cases, the year code is 8 characters
from the end of the VIN, or 2 characters before the six-digit
sequential build number.)  From 1966 to 1979, the last number of the
calendar year was used, and 6 through 9 were repeated (0 *was* used
for 1970).  Beginning in 1980, the year was coded alphabetically,
beginning with 'A' and skipping 'I,' 'O,' and 'Q.' (H=1987, J=1988,
N=1992, P=1993, R=1994, etc.)

This list does not include Dodge truck engine codes, which, except
for the minivans, are mostly different than those for cars.  In
fact, the truck VINs use a different system, and may even omit the
engine code.  (The Jeep list includes all codes from 1981,
regardless of usage.)

Below:

  Angle refers to:
    For inline engines:
      '|0', '\nn' or '/nn', vertical, or leaning left or right
      as viewed from the front (not bellhousing) end.

   For V-type engines:
     'vnn' for the angle between the banks.

  In both cases, nn refers to the angle in degrees.


  OHV  - pushrod operated OverHead Valves
  SOHC - Single OverHead Cam
  DOHC - Dual OverHead Cam
  SV   - Side Valve (Flathead)

-303 came out first, in 56, then the 301.
-The 301 and 303 may also be 'A' engines, based on bore and stroke,
 (and probably the 277), but don't know about the 241, 260, or 270.
-The 241 and 270 appear to be poly-head versions of the

-There were no Plymouth early Hemis. ( not from the factory d;^) )
-pre '55 Hemis were built in small, medium, and big block
 configurations. Parts commonality was superficial.
-55 and later engines started moving toward the big
 block/small block commonality of the wedge engines,
 but even then, parts interchangability was the exception.
-They appear to be the same engine among each make, at least.
-Seems to be some cross-over with Poly's

-All Iron block except Viper, Alumin(i)um block.
-318 & 3.9 received new heads & manifolding (Magnum) in 92,
 360 got the same treatment in 93(?)
-LA engines have same bore spacing as 'A' engines and
 could be considered and evolution of the 'A' series.
-The V10s have a deep skirt, unlike other LAs
-The Viper V10 is only loosly based on the LA

-The following information comes from Viper Quarterly magazine:
 -The 1st generation Viper engine was used for 1992 - 1996 RT/10
  production.  When the assembly line switched to 1996 GTS coupe
  production, the 1st generation engine was retired.  The 2nd
  generation engine will be used in all Vipers going forward,
  including the 1997 RT/10's.
 -Details of the 1st generation Viper V10
  -"wet" cast iron liners
  -liners are sealed by o-rings at the bottom and top
  -coolant flows 360 degrees around the liners along the
   full path of the stroke, and a little beyond (3.94")
  -coolant delivery tubes exteral from the block (a design
   borrowed from Lamborghini's racing engines)
  -thermostat at the rear of the block
  -the first 300 blocks were cast by Lamborghini in Italy,
   but the casting job has since been farmed out in the U.S.
 -Details of the 2nd generation Viper V10
  -80 lbs lighter than the 1st gen engine
  -permanent cast iron liners
  -cross bolted main bearings
  -coolant delivery incorparated into the block
  -thermostat moved to the front of the block

-Late 68 and later 440 could also be had as HP or HP2,
 internal differences for durability (con rods, crank etc)
-70 & later 440 HP2 blocks have a 1" wide strip that runs most
 of the length of the block across the freeze plug hole for
 extra strength. Likely all RB's got this strip.
