Hello Friends,

Moving from one garage to another with the engine parts in many little boxes is not the best for the rebuilding process, at least for me....

So I lost the camshaft thrust plate, spacer, bolts and oil deflector, this last one called "oil trough" on the service manual.

The engine is a 1958  318 Poly.

Can anybody sell those parts to me, please ?

I am attaching a pic of the parts.

thank you for any assistance !

I don't know how similar those parts are to the early hemi, but I would bet that they are pretty close. The only question is the hole pattern. But if they are the same, you could get them from www.hothemiheads.com

http://hothemiheads.com/dodge/index.html#C

They are very knowledgeable, so I would give them a call and see what they say. (336) 352-4866

thank you.
as a matter of fact I have difficulties in contacting the ebay member who was selling the part.
I'll try these guys too, as you suggest.

In '58, all three parts are the same for all V8's, so the Hemi parts will work.

Thank you !!! Indeed this was one of my worries, as I have found the spacer for a hemi at the hothemiheads and I was asking just that.
So far I have found the thrust plate from ebay, the spacer from hothemiheads,
I just miss the four bolts and the oil deflector. But this one I can build it myself.
Need the bolts.
Thank you again!

The oil trough is the same as any A-LA engine and the bolts are 5/16-18 x ¾".

Send a pm if you still need the pieces.

Thank you Gary
Sorry for the delay in re-opening this page but my work keeps busy and off town for many days a week.
Thank you for the offer. Indeed It is better to have an original steel part than a soda tincan cut to shape ..... :-))
I am sending a PM to you.

...sure wish that this forum would allow for edits of previous posts....we don't always see our mistakes within 999 minutes......

So, for the record, in case anyone else is searching:
The retaining bolts for the cam thrust plate are 5/16-18 x 5/8.
As we all know, fine threads in cast iron are rarely used.
Additionally, these particular bolts use a captive external tooth washer.
