Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Chrysler's B and RB engines are a series of big-block V8s which in 1958 replaced the first-generation Hemi engines. The B and RB engines use wedge-shaped combustion chambers. Design features include 17 capscrews per cylinder head, a cylinder block that extends 3 inches (76 mm) below the crankshaft centerline, an intake manifold not exposed to crankcase oil on the underside, stamped-steel, shaft-mounted rocker arms (race versions used forged steel rockers), and a front-mounted oil pump driven by the camshaft. All B-series engines have a 3.375 inches (85.7 mm) stroke. Plymouth called their version of the early B engine the Golden Commando. It produced 305 brake horsepower (227 kW). DeSoto's B engine was named Turboflash. It put out 295 brake horsepower (220 kW). Dodge's variant was called the D-500 and produced 320 brake horsepower (240 kW).show more
