Re: [GFS] Re: 58/57 FURY



Brian
I think most of the 57/58 Polys had bottom end troubles. I remember my 58
Poly Fury in 1966,,with those solid lifters and cam and carbs I would wind
that up like a top,,,62 MPH in 1st.  So I think a lot of the Polys had
trouble due to their own characterists.

As far as internals for the FLP8 and FP31,,, this is 2nd hand info,,but
semi confirmed. I have also talked to Chrysler about it,,no response
yet.....

Forgetting about the cam, carbs, distrib etc which were same....
The FP31 seems to have had its own crank,rods, piston which the FLP8 did
not have.
Certainly they would interchange, but why were these parts specific to the
57 FURY and in 58 they appear to be just common to other 318s???
Were the FP 31 pieces forged instead of cast?? or were the rods and crank
shotpeened??
or were they pre balanced?? or was the difference B.S.?

I hope Chrysler tells me some day.      ED

  Hi Ed,

  I would never downplay the FP31! It's just disheartening in that if I 
  had known the car wasn't "all original" I may not have been so 
  adamant about the transmission rebuild I just went through...  I 
  could have just swapped out my trashed t-flite for a better one, or 
  an "off the shelf" rebuild, instead of going through the pains of a 
  $2,600 rebuild... which had to be done twice!

  I thought the FP31 and FLP were identical motors...  is there any 
  refferences you can guide me to, to compare them? 

  thanks,
  Brian
