what? your old motor was shot? why just not get a new trans? or you grabbed a trans off a 318?


No motor was good but is 65 model & the bellhousing pattern is different so a previous owner removed the locating dowels
to get them to bolt together hence it doesn't line up correctly. So I have found a 60 model motor that will just need to rebuild it
original trans has been rebuilt.

Gees Graham, this really turned out bad for you.

Is the engine the last bit, or more surprises turned up?

Hi Mick,

This has been the only real surprise only other problem has been sourcing bits but
that's sorted & once the motor is built & swapped I'll be cruising. Although I still have to get engine parts so I shouldn't speak to soon.

Cheers Gra

I used falcon global engine rebuild kit for the dodge for a standard kind of build.

The cam I got re ground by wade cams (i think)

Gary Pavolich can also supply a lot, but at more cost

Depends on how you want to build it

Not sure if your on it, but there is a FB page for the poly

Hey thanks for the link I joined that group now. I will do a full rebuild hope to use the heads
I had done on it do you know if 1965 poly heads fit on a 1960 poly ? also need to find a intermediate shaft
The 60 motor has already been oversized it has flattop pistons I have to measure it up to see if I will oversize it
again or sleeve it back.

Only differences I know of is the crank and trans mounting mounting for the later blocks, so heads should be fine
