We were having a discussion at lunch about a member of our party who just purchased a new/used crate hemi. We were trying to recollect when and who started building the crate motors after Cummins. Any knowledgeable members out there that can help us fill in the blanks. Maybe some insight of the time frames?

I think it was Bill Hancock that used to own Arrow? A couple of my friends keep me in the e-mail loop with him a few times a week. All kinds of car & airplane stuff going back & forth. I was working at McCormick Racing in 1997 & as I recall, Arrow was trying to build-up some of the first Hemis out of the new molds & they were having MAJOR problems. Arrow was right next door to McCormick. Chrysler had to go back & rework the block tooling as I recall. they simply did not go together with the heads & all the other components.

Yep - it was Bill: http://www.aetconline.com/speaker/bill-hancock-2/

I've had lunch & beers a few times with him in the group. He is QUITE a character!
