Re: [GFS] Re: 58/57 FURY



Paul
Let me give you the p/ns that I have for the FP31 only (supposedly)  Maybe
you can put this to rest.

P/N 1732-853     for 57 FURY AND 56 FURY 303 only       Con Rods ( ie: no
58  318)
P/N 1732-611     For 57 FURY only     CRANK
P/N 1818-597     For 57 FURY only     Piston  std

All of the other P/Ns seem to be common
ED

  According to my MOPAR parts book, the pistons and rods are the same part
#
  '57-'58, only the crank # changed.
