Re: [GFS] musical motors



Brian
Atleast you now have the story!!!
I agree..no compression is no compression.  No amount of clean up will
help that

I would say be happy with the FP31.  I did pick up on one thing you
said,,,the fellow still has the FP31 heads??
My P318 has standard heads( but atleast everything else looks to be
correct)  would he want to sell them

  Well, I just got off the phone with the guy I bought my Fury from...

  It is definately NOT the original motor.. :-(

  Apparently in 1971 or so, his dad was driving the car and threw a 
  rod - sound familiar? So they got this motor - strangely enough out 
  of another '58 Fury that had thrown a rod! So this motor had somehow 
  made its way from a '57 to a '58 and then into another '58 all by 
  1971. He wasn't even sure it was a Fury motor, but only suspected it 
  was.  When he got it, it had a 2-barrel style car distributor in it, 
  and a funky manifold of some kind.  When it was installed in my '58, 
  he swapped over to the correct distributor, and swapped the intake 
  manifold and carbs over from the original motor to this one. Says he 
  stil has the heads to the original motor to mine, but the block and 
  other parts are long-gone.

  He thinks this motor only has about 86,000 miles on it, and he put 
  less than 1,000 miles on the car from 1971-2001 when i bought it. He 
  said even in 1971 when he swapped the intakes, it was so sludged up 
  it was unreal. He thinks a lot of my smoke problems is because under 
  the valves covers is all sludged up probably, and probably the return 
  galleys are plugged up good.  Doesn't change the fact that I got very 
  little compression though...

  So, that's the story...  Still going to send off to Chrysler 
  Historical though..
