    Slant 6 timing cover

    The timing covers will physically fit between all the different years and sizes of the slant sixes. The thing to watch out for is the timing tab. It is in different places for different years, some are welded on to the cover, some bolt on.

    Driver inlet rad on slant 6

    I actually have a pic of that hose on a slant, but I am having trouble locating it. I have a 2007 Magnum and happened to notice that it might work on a slant with a radiator outled on the driver side. You may need to use a tie wrap or two just to keep clearance for the belts.

    Driver inlet rad on slant 6

    The lower radiator hose for a 2007 Dodge Magnum 5.7 L looks like it would work well for something like this. I have some pictures somewhere. I'll post when I find them.

    Oil pump model fitment question

    Thanks for the kind words, my wife and I have been battling some health issues, but things are looking up. I ran out of the oil pump gaskets but I am having more made and should be back in stock soon. Now, back to the regularly scheduled post.

    Cam Gear Beveled Washer

    I am pretty sure it is the same as the big block Mopar engines. I don't recall whether the small blocks used a washer as they have that fuel pump eccentric bolted to the front of the cam (and wouldn't really need a washer.

    Slant 6 progress

    Personally, I would notch the fan blades for clearance. It would be fairly easy and have a negligible effect on the air flow.

    Parts Interchange

    Here are some pics of the tube/pan junction. The tab on this particular tube was bolted to the engine mount.

    Parts Interchange

    FYI, the trucks have a dipstick tube that goes into the oil pan itself. The good news is that after unbolting the tube supports, the tube will pull right out of the pan. You will not need to remove the oil pan. If I recall, there is a tab bolted to the motor mount that secures the tube in place.

    /6 engine removal with hood in place?

    It is much easier with the hood out of the way. I have pulled many engines by myself. Keep the link between the hoist and the engine as short as practical. Start lifting. If the hood gets in the way, that's when you remove the front bolt from each side of the hood (where it bolts to the...

    /6 engine removal with hood in place?

    I have had success by removing only the front hinge/hood bolt on each side. This allows the hood to "open" further while leaving it 'mostly' in place. This may help: 225 Engine Specs WIDTH Outside Valve Cover to Prod. Exhaust Manifolds 17.3" LENGTH Bellhousing Face to: Front of Block 27.7"...

    Dana 60 with upgraded slant six

    IIRK, early Dakotas used 8 1/4 rears, and they are fairly plentiful in salvage yards.

    I think I'm missing a nut.

    FYI, that is a 3/4-16 bolt roughly 2 1/4 inch in length. Takes a 1 1/4 inch socket.

    Very Cool Slant 6 Product! Camshaft Button

    The 'bolt and stud' setup is a proven method of limiting cam walk on the slant six. However, not everyone has access to welding or the items needed for the ‘bolt and stud’ method. This button is an easier way to accomplish the same thing. With the cam bolt properly tightened, there should be no...

    No Oil Pressure

    The oil pressure relief valve could be stuck. You should take it apart and clean it.

    balance point for SL6

    Of the two bolt holes on the head between the manifolds and the valve cover, the front hole will balance the engine by itself. The rear hole will balance the engine/transmission combo. I designed a steel bracket that takes advantage of this, it isn't exactly low profile, but it makes hooking...

    Widening exhaust outlet

    I just used a die grinder and various stones, sanding drums, and such to grind away. I opened mine up to just over 2 1/4 inch diameter, but I could have easily gone to 2 1/2 on the manifold I did.

    Comp Cams Slant 6 problem

    The cam bolt is 7/16-14 x 1.25" and the washer is 1.5"dia, 1/8" thick and slightly concaved. I just measured these items from an 84 slant six.

    Thermostat housing different sizes...

    The 'standard' slant six (all engines) thermostat housing is the same for all slants. It is angled for the hose to install basically straight up, or 90* from the outlet hole in the head. Other outlets fit if you need to use different radiators and/or hoses. Stant 84837

    What timing gear do I need?

    All the timing chain sets are interchangable between the years and engine sizes of all slants. Either one will work.

    Never pulled a 6.

    The front boss is to lift the engine only on a level. The rear boss is to lift the engine/transmission on a level.

    Slant 6 leaking from water pump bolt.

    I think 10 mm metric bolt is just slightly bigger than a 3/8". That could be a possibility.
