    Just thought I would post up some pics of the progress of the latest build. Got the cam dialed in. 08E775E4-080A-411B-9C28-BDD3E8190839.jpeg 17E08217-2275-4360-BA47-65736E31E16B.jpeg F1E312E0-DAA8-4D71-8F71-AA148EF65803.jpeg 73177CA7-DA4A-4369-A889-A8F5B24A7EB1.jpeg 705CF999-33C7-4159-8922-A76B29020861.jpeg

        The cam button and one of AndyF’s sweet billet timing covers. Very well designed for rollers and cam buttons.
        and an aluminum water pump housing fits right over it.

            If you’ve ever built a hemi then you gotta know how
            terrible the factory valve geometry is. So I had to move up to better rockers to correct the geometry
            problem with the factory rockers. So I went with the Stage V ones just seemed fitting since I had their heads. Problem solved! 64073773-9D1A-431B-9CE6-E3414DABD135.jpeg

                I’m now working on valve covers and oh boy! It has been a real challenge so far. The repop covers are...
                well let’s just say the need some work. And you have the spark plug tube length to get right. So that’s where I’m at presently trying to make some valve covers work. 1EFA1421-CBE7-422E-9996-8C6FFC1ECABC.jpeg 0ADA47BC-780A-427E-9E0A-B508D98F5905.jpeg 96D5F625-5C5B-4EAD-ADE3-5C3C803891DD.jpeg

                                      Have looked a lot of old Hemi parts/engines for sale. Very expensive. Appreciate someone doing a good job building one right.

                                                  Barton told me the replacement head was no longer available and wanted to sell me the custom stage v with stock valve. Any idea what the port size and flow numbers are?
