Got one or more sets on the shelf you've been saving for a project that's never going to happen? If so, shoot me the details and a price.

Jack,
This question is asked on the 1955-1956 Packard Facebook page,
ď Iím looking to buy lifters for my Ď55 V8. Iíve read from multiple sources that mopar 318 lifters cross over, but to use part number 879 instead of 2011. What is the difference? Will using the 2011 cause a catastrophic engine failure?Ē

I donít know if you do Facebook or not, but I was wondering what the answer was.

Only the 879 number will work. The early Mopars and Packards were the same. After a few years, Mopar changed their pushrod ends from 1/4" to 5/16" and the pushrod cup in the 2011 does not mate up correctly with the Packard pushrod.

BTW- still need V8 bearings and pistons.

Greetings, All,

Need a set of .010" King main bearings.

PM me on how you'd like payment.

Jack,
If you find any, and there are extra's, please let me know. I have been looking for a set for my 352 and have come up empty. I even found one reference that a newer big block Ford set would fit, but after I received them, they were totally different. It seems that the only other option is to have the crank turned another .010 and get the 20 over ones that are easily available.

Just for the good of the order, where was this mis-information found? BBF has huge main bearings (3.00") so not even a remote possibility for use in the Packard V8. We need to get this fake news taken down or at least called out as wrong.

With appropriate machining, substitutes for main bearings 1 - 4 can be found, but the #5 thrust bearing is unique. There are no substitutes.
