Hemi Intake Gaskets!
« on: August 16, 2013, 10:43:57 AM »

426 Crate engine that's never been started that I bought about 6 years ago. No one has gaskets and you call a Chrysler dealer and they just about pass out when you tell 'em it's only a 6 year old motor! They don't even have a Mopar Performance parts book for them. I've found intake gaskets, marked as Mopar Performance gaaskets, at Summit but they are marked not for D4 - D6 engine. What are D4-D6 engines? Any suggestions where I might get these gaskets from?

Early Hemis of the '50s - if I am right.

That is correct, but I still find it difficult to imagine finding the intake gaskets being this difficult. Nothing on a 426 is cheap, but they do still make them. Mr. Gasket has them # 303G intake manifold 426 Hemi gasket.

Finally found a Chrysler dealer that has a Mopar Performance catalog, or is just willing to admit it, and a parts guy who loves the 426 big block Hemi! Ordered the gaskets and a flex plate but found out Mopar cancelled the flex plate to crank bolts years ago. No problem, ARP makes them and picked them up at a local speed shop. Getting close to finally starting this engine after many years of just looking at it! Hoping to hear it rumble, no mufflers yet just open headers, sometime next month, or sooner! The neighbors are gonna love me!

What are you going to put this elephant into? Did I miss something?
