An update to the search of a 356 block......

After many months of searching, I was able to find a replacement block that fit the criteria of being very early 1940.........casting date of 06 29 39 with a serial number of C500140. It was in great shape with the exception of a scored cylinder wall.
After the block was chemically stripped, magnafluxed, it was determined that a simple sleeve would repair the score and the balance of cylinders were bored .030 over to fit a new set of pistons.

Today I was able to partially disassemble the original motor and will finally be able to continue with the project.

One question that I have is the removal of the plugs in the oil galley. I would be much more comfortable removing them and provide a through cleaning of the channels prior to the rebuild.

Any recommendations on removal? Heat? They appear to be very very tight as I was unable to budge them with a punch and hammer. Amy input would be greatly appreciated.

Pair of front fenders. Rough, some bondo from past repairs and rust. Will need to be blasted and fully repaired.

Free to a good home. I can take to a shipper if you can figure out how to get them moved. Iím located in Norfolk, VA.

Bingo! If you open the choke so you can see in the carb, you should see a squirt of gas when you move the throttel. That is the function of the accelerator pump. It squirts fuel for starting, and accelerating (transition). The rest of the time, your engine will suck the fuel it needs.
Your accelerator pump is not working. Time to rebuild your Carb. An enjoyable diy Job.
Or have a reputable Shop do it.

Thanks for that insight, Ross. It sure looked like it wasn't a problem area, so that helps me decide what to do.

Thanks and I shall definitely do that. As I said before, I'm afraid of damaging the gauge perenantly. I did see the screws on the back of the plate and was able to remove the gauge from the instrument cluster without hurting it.
Thanks for your input and yes, I'll go with your suggestion.

John Uhlrich reproduces the gears, quite reasonably

Thanks for finding that. My first thought is that the sequence was cost reduction>>service problem>>remedial action.

Yet, the vast majority of trans that have been through here over the years have the two steel washer and bronze washer combo and that is not usually a problem area.

Well, I found the 1953 Service Bulletins where the Reactor Thrust Ball Bearing is replaced by the thrust washer, and the 1954 Service Bulletins where the thrust washer is re-replaced by the ball bearings.
