Chrysler engine nomenclature[edit]

Greetings, Richard. Your edits to List of Chrysler engines ran afoul of multiple Wikipedia principles and protocols. Every potentially-questionable assertion must be verifiable, and supported with references to acceptably reliable sources. Does anybody but Richard E. group the Hemi engines into "1G", "2G", and "3G" categories? If so, can you prove it? If not, that nomenclature doesn't belong. Just asserting "The 426 Hemi is now known as a 2G Hemi" isn't good enough. Same goes for "Trans four" and "Trenton-4". That's not admissible even if an insider told it to you, because a conversation you (or I, or any other editor) remembers having doesn't qualify as a reliable source. Neither does "common knowledge". Also please note it would be problematic if you were to use Mopar Action as a source for your assertions, for the obvious reason that your own original research doesn't become admissible just because you put it in a magazine you edit before you put it here.

Furthermore, the detail you added was not appropriate in the overview article List of Chrysler engines, which serves as a hub for all the articles in that category. Details such as you want to add belong in the relevant articles themselves. Thanks for editing cooperatively! —Scheinwerfermann T·C19:42, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Scheinwerfermann-
The latest (2009) factory / Chrysler LLC / Mopar Performance catalog refers to '64-71 426 Hemi engines as "Hemi - 2nd Gen" and the new 5.7L and 6.1L engines at "Gen 3". Admittedly, this was at my suggestion, but it is now official gospel. I will be happy to e-mail you a copy of this if you wish (big pdf file).
By default, this would seem to make '51-'58 Hemis 1G, no?
"Trans Four" was also an official advertising / sales brochure / fact-book designation, easily provable, see early Reliant / Aries brochures, etc. They were apparently hoping the catch phrase would stick and have positive connotations, as in "Slant Six".
"Trenton four" was, yes, an "insider" term.
You can put back my edits - or not! No big deal.

Rick, it's best to keep any given conversation in one place, so I've moved your response from my talk page to yours here. The "official gospel" nature of the 2g/3g nomenclature you suggested is questionable for the same reason that it would be troublesome for you to post stuff you wrote for MA here, then cite MA as your source, and no, what might make logical sense to any particular editor "by default" doesn't qualify it for inclusion. "Trans four" might've been an attempted marketing name, or might've been a simple abbreviation of "transverse four". A citation beyond "go look at early brochures" would need to be provided. —Scheinwerfermann T·C04:03, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Scheinwerfermann-

Somebody has to make up names. No matter whether I, or Walter P. Chrysler, came up with the 1G / 2G / 3G Hemi nomenclature, it is now used in an official Chrysler LLC publication, as I said. The 2009 Mopar Performance catalog, with those designations, is now available online at the MP site:[1]

Some documentation of the "Trans-4" nomenclature:

1981 Plymouth Reliant sales brochure, pages 2, 5, 10 Chrysler publication 81-1005-1008

1981 Dodge Aries sales brochuure, pages 2, 6. Chrysler 81-205-1007

1981 Dodge Omni sales brochure, pages 3, 5 (with cutaway drawing), 80-205-1004. 500,000 copies printed

Hello Rehrenberg. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article Threshold braking, you may have a conflict of interest or close connection to the subject.

All editors are required to comply with Wikipedia's neutral point of view content policy. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to inadvertently edit in ways that make the article either too flattering or too disparaging. People with a close connection to a subject are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject, but they need to be especially careful about ensuring their edits are verified by reliable sources and writing with as little bias as possible.

If you are very close to a subject, here are some ways you can reduce the risk of problems:

  • Avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.
  • Be cautious about deletion discussions. Everyone is welcome to provide information about independent sources in deletion discussions, but avoid advocating for deletion of articles about your competitors.
  • Avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).
  • Exercise great caution so that you do not accidentally breach Wikipedia's content policies.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies.

For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you. Dennis Bratland (talk) 03:40, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
