Re: [GFS] Re: 58/57 FURY



Brian
       The part # for a 57-58 fury 318 engine assy. is 1752 443.  The only
difference that I am aware of is the crankshaft. 57 is #1732 611, 58 is
#1827 435. The later is designated as a change or addition in the book. As
we know the 57 used a Canadian truck crank. If you look in the Hollander
it
interchanges the 318 crank from 57 to the end of the 318 poly head.
       I suspect  the reason the crank may have been changed in '58 is the
'57's were prone to throw rods. I purchased my '57 from the daughter of
the
original owner, threw rods twice, second time it was parked[1966]. I
bought
it that way around 1980, still setting in the garage.
        I know another man had one new, threw a rod, dealer installed a
new
engine.
