Further to the topic of motor mounts.

Here are two photos Neil sent me to show the 4 bolt exhaust flanges. I zoomed onto the UNIQUE motor mount ears welded to the x-member. These are DIFFERENT from the regular ones we see on 57-59 Dodge, Plymouth and probably Firesweeps. These were specific for 354 engines, factory mounted on these frames. Restoring CDN, 1958 Custom Royals where 354 engines were standard, I had seen these "ears" many times before.

Next two photos should show what I call "regular" ears. A Dodge and a 58 Ply frame.

Next photo should show my CDN, 1958 CR 4 Dr. sedan with it's 354.

Hope I load these photos in the proper sequence!!
Greg

IIRC, those 501 pictures of the engine compartment are of the Red 501 that was featured in Hemmings. I think it is also the one that passed through 57 Heaven. Now I have to look at my motor mount brackets. There was some discussion about whether they were the same as the poly ones a long time ago but nothing was resolved, until now! Thanks Greg!

BTW, all 501s are righteous!

Someone told me that the D501 used the 1821345 truck & marine connecting rods. Is there any truth to that? I believe the 354 poly used the standard 1324222 car versions, but I haven't checked my motors to find out. Looking at them, I'm not sure what the difference is between them. Maybe the marine/truck ones are slightly heavier?

Nathan: I wish you luck trying to figure that one out

There are a couple of problems:

1. *IF* the D501 program is similar to the D500-1 (race) program, many of the engine part numbers, while listed for awhile to satisfy NASCAR and/or NHRA requirements, they never made it into the mainstream parts books like the 55-58 Mopar Parts catalogue. Gone. Evaporated.

2. As we know, the part number for an engine part, like the rods, is not the same as the number that is cast into the web of the rod. To quote from the 55-58 Mopar Parts catalogue:
"9-31-0 CONNECTING ROD Note: Connecting Rod includes Bearing Cap, Bolt, Nut, Lockwasher and Bushing but does not include Bearing". So more than just the rod. Only things like intake manifolds with no add-ons seem to carry their casting number as the PN (but even that isn't all the time)

For example the 354 Poly 1324 222 rod number you suggest might be the casting number but the catalogue says the rod assembly for 1955-56 Chrysler V8s was 1323 338. The fact that the PN starts with "13" implies that it started as a 1953 part number. Since the 1951 331 had a stroke of 3 5/8" as did the 1956 354, it is conceivable that the normal Chrysler V8s (including the 55 and 56 300s) all used the same rod over those years.

Not surprising, the 57-58 Dodge truck V8 rod PN was 1630 396 which is the same as all the 56 Dodge V8s including the non-race D500s.

I am guess that you will have to find a Chrysler Marine or Industrial engine parts book to answer your question and even then......
