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.
