What is the difference between the 426 Hemi OHV and SOHC engines?
The 1970 Dodge Charger can be built with a 426 Hemi engine (OHV) and the 1970 Plymouth Superbird races a 426 Hemi (SOHC). What are the main differences between these two engines? Specifications (hp, torque, weight)? And which one is the best?
ohv means over head valve(camshaft is in the middle of the block).sohc means single over head cam (2 camshafts, onne in each cylinder head)
I have never heard of a 426 HEMI with SOHC.
I do not think the Hemi head architecture would lend itself to an overhead cam. There was, however, a limited run of Ford 427 SOHC engines.
