Re: Enquiry Dan Mathers


Just a quick overview on the Poly...Rods down are the same parts as an LA 318/340 (rods, crank, bearings, oil pump). Front of the engine is the same as well (timing chain, timing cover, harmonic balancer, water pump). One note is that the water pump must be 67? and earlier as the water outlet is on the drivers side...unless you have a later radiator. Distributor and drive shaft are also the same.

Pistons, cam, heads, and valve gear are the different parts. Do plenty of research before you buy your parts, and make sure your machinist/builder has a great rep with lots of experience. He may not be the cheapest, but you get what you pay for.

I'm at the tail end of my build and will be happy to answer questions and share info with you if you like. Just email me.

an excellent two page spread in the latest issue of Street Rodder... Bruce
Toth and I are working on our own resource guide pages but that's the least

spankin' Poly...

Thanks Roland for your quick response. I will get with the motor builder and
we'll come up with a plan then I'll start getting items ordered.
Do you have a parts book of some type for this motor?

Thank you

parts for any more. So with that I went and loaded up the pieces and put
them in my shop. Just trying to figure out what to do next. Not wanting to
put a chevy in my 39 Plymouth coupe like everyone keep telling that's the
best way to build my car. For some reason that just kind of made me sick to
my stomach.
