Re: [GFS] Re: 58/57 FURY



Paul and Brian
Looks like the FLP8 and FP31 are pretty similiar after all.  Certainly
different crank ,,,,,,but rods,,,,who knows,,,maybe Chrysler will advise
at some point.

Just for the heck of it-was the 57 crank forged or shotpeened or even
crossdrilled to make it 'better' than the 58 and later cranks???

  Eddie
        My book shows '58 Fury with 318 same piston part # as '57 Fury.
#1818
  597. They are listed in seperate columns bur same #.
          The crank we agree on. Numbers that I posted earlier.
           The rods 56-57 Fury #1732 853
                 Also listed 56-58 LP2, LP2 Fury w318  #1618 697,
FOOTNOTE 1
                      P29 from engine #1001-40000 &80001 - 250000 and
after
  P29-274101.
                Since a '57 is after the P29 wich rod does it take????????
                            Paul
