Don't see these too often. This is how I got my two Hemi engines.

And there is that 2 x 1 bbl manifold again. Interesting that the exhaust valves were sodium-filled like the D501 engine.

All the marine hemis I have had experience with had sodium cooled exhaust valves. This one looks to be a 331.

How can you tell the difference between the 331 & 354 from the picture? These motors also came with solid lifters & adjustable rockers. That's how I obtained one of my sets too. I sold the marine valve covers for the same amount I bought the whole motor for.

I don't think they built the 354 with anything but single or dual 4bbl carbs. The two singles were common on the 331.

Sodium cooled valves and exhaust rotaters were very common in gasoline truck engines. The engines were worked much harder than in a car and this made the exhaust valves last longer without burning. The same concept applied to marine engines.

That's not true. According to what has been published about them, the numbers on the marine blocks were

M45S 331 2X1
M45S-3 354 2X1
M45SP-? 354 1x4 (Canada)
M45SP-3 354 2X4

In fact, my marine 354 originally came with a 2x1 manifold on it, and the tug boat it came out of had 2 motors; one right, and one left. Both were configured the same, except for the rotation direction.

Same as Powerflite. My engines were Marine APV motors. left and right. one 331 and one 354, a replacement motor, to the original it seems. but both had 2 x 1bbl carbs.
