I could start all the discussions I can, but why would 'youse guys' take my Dutch word for it..

Speaking of pumping out Hemi's... What about the differences between the early 392's and the new 392's.... ?

The older ones had a narrower skirt so they had shorter
strokes.  In some cases it's a fit problem that old Hemi
solves
Would that be the only difference as stated earlier

About the same as the "A" 318 and the "LA" 318.  All they share are the cubes.  The new 392 is merely a cubic-inch coincidence - it is a totally different motor.
 
No one has mentioned that Mopar in the fifty's had three different hemi "families."  Those mentioned so far were Chrysler specific.  However, Dodge and DeSoto eack had hemi motors of totally different sizes.  (All I know are the Dodge 270 and 345.)  Plymouth was not given a Hemi in the 50's.
 
When the 426 Hemi appeared, it could be found in Plymouth and Dodge, but it was the same motor for both.  Chrysler was not given this motor at all.

Ar, your halarious, and besides the idea of a 528 Hemi, In reference to
what Snotty has said, Chrysler's Hemi was called Fire Power , and De
Soto was called Fire Dome, what was Dodge and Plymouth's called. Also
since the engines each had their own catch name for the brand, were
these engines the same sonce they were all in the chrysler family or
did each division add its own twist. This of course is in reference to
50's Hemi's.

Chrysler and Imperial had theirs called the FirePower,dodge had the Red Ram, Desoto had the FireDome. the dodge was smaller(in cubic inches).
Chrysler and Imperial had engines in the following Cubes . 331, 354, 392.
Desoto had 276, 291, 330, 341, and 345.
Dodge had 241, 270, 315, and 325..

They each had their own twist, Tater.  That was what I was saying earlier.  Unlike the 426, these early Hemis were not "corporate" motors.
 
Also unlike a 426, you could take the heads from a 331 Hemi and put them on a 331 Poly.  All you needed was the hemi pushrods.  But this could not be done with the 426 street wedge and the 426 hemi - or any other later wedge motor for that matter.
 
Most people don't know that about the early hemis.  They will look high and low for a complete hemi instead of finding a good poly motor and just look for the heads.  (This will not work for the 318 "poly" motor, contrary to popular opinion.)

Ok Snotty,

Explain to me why Mopar fans call the Polly the Predate to the Hemi, what makes a Polly a Polly?
