I even found one reference that a newer big block Ford set would fit,
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.

Collector cars are the #1 cause of divorce. Ever go to an auction? A high-bucks bidder will usually have some younger eye candy on his arm; the first wife told him "It's those old cars or me!" And there you have it.

We've got a '53 327" 4-bbl core engine we've been wanting to rebuild. Are you interested in a completely rebuilt engine?

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.

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.

Anyone going to want a rebuilt 320" in the near future?

We've got one set of 320" .040" pistons on the shelf and aren't likely to see another. Before I let them go, thought I'd ask if anyone is contemplating having a 320" rebuilt. Now would be the time.

Good memory, Don.

I found this address:

Marc Auto Restorations
3232 Skokie Valley Road
Highland Park, IL 60035

and thought someone might have known him there.

Someone was asking me about this shop and I've never known the guy or when he was into Packards.

Re: 320 v8 pistons and valves.

It's probable your piston and valve damage was caused by the valve spring retainers. Packard Engineering learned through failure analysis the retainers were too soft and the keepers would pull through the retainer, dropping the valve into the cylinder.

Later retainers are hardened, so replace all of yours with hardened versions.

Are you going to replace all the valves or only the damaged ones? New valves have gotten really spendy, so if you only need a couple of used valves, some of us here can probably come up with them for you.

Some claim to have bored the 320" to 4" and used 352" pistons, but I've never done it. Again, I could come up with a used set of 352" pistons for cheap.
