Hi Folks, Last week I purchased a 1959 Canadian Dodge Mayfair 4 dr. Sorta runs sorta stops and sorta steers. Body pretty sound for a car that slept outside in Saskatchewan for the last 6 years. Lower Mainland Vancouver before that.

It's sitting in my wife's parking spot in the garage, so I promised to put it in storage someplace until spring. BUT, before then, I would like to get it back on 8 Cyl's. Has a Poly 313 V8 2 bbl with a push button auto, power nothing. Did the compression and the back cyl. on the pass side has a broken pushrod on the intake valve.

I just want to do the one pushrod in the meantime as I can't bear to hear it run on 7. I fished out the top half and will try to get the lower part out. If not possible, I'll pull the intake.
Plan to do a total rebuild soon but just want it back on eight for now. Can anyone tell me where I can find a push rod, or a complete set? Same as 318 Poly A engine?? Waiting on the manuals to arrive.

Have restored 15+ cars in the past, but this quirky "plodge " is my first Dodge fin car.
