    Question about a stuck 326 Dodge engine

    Got the heads pulled today. Cylinders look better than expected. Don't see any major scoring, rust or ring ridge. Still could not get the engine to turn over. Valves look a little rusty.

    Question about a stuck 326 Dodge engine

    Was able to pull the intake, distributor etc today. Tomorrow will pull the heads. Looks pretty gummy in the engine...especially the exhaust cross over. Definitely best I'm pulling the engine.

    Car lifts

    I have four post lifts, the mid rise Maxx Jaxx 2 post lift and a midrise scissor lift. Each has it's pluses and minuses. The 4 post takes very little set up but without a bridge jack it's harder to work on brakes/suspension etc. The mid rise scissor lift is nice but you can't do anything to...

    Question about a stuck 326 Dodge engine

    Thanks for the comments. I'm hoping to find time this week to take apart the original engine and just see how bad it is. I will post pics once I do. Thanks.

    Question about a stuck 326 Dodge engine

    Another member here offered me a good long block engine so planning on dropping that in for now rather than rebuild the current engine. I may rebuild the original engine at a later date. Someone on another forum said I should install a 383 and torqueflight. Is the 383 a drop in replacement? I...

    58 plymouth

    So true. I never knew about the 58 Plymouth until I saw the movie. Then I was on a mission to get all 3 cars from the movie: 58 Plymouth, 67 Camaro and 68 Charger. That movie turned out to be expensive !!!

    Bastardized 1959 "Coronet" build

    I agree...really enjoy seeing the progress on this car. I was so inspired I had to go out and buy a 1959 Dodge Coronet....didn't need another project but those pictures of wetskier2000's car were so cool I could not help myself....I knew I needed one also!!!!

    Question about a stuck 326 Dodge engine

    I think the transmission bellhousing has to come with it. I thought these engines/transmissions had a hidden bell housing bolt on the inside which was really tough to get too.

    Question about a stuck 326 Dodge engine

    Finally decided to throw in the towel and disassemble the engine. I've not had any luck in 3 weeks of soaking the pistons. The fluid does drain down some but not enough to make any difference. My only question is since the engine is seized I can't turn the engine to unbolt the torque...

    WANTED 1959 Dodge Coronet - parts needed

    Ironically I bought the car from John at Big M and he did not have any 1959 Dodge Coronet parts available. He did have a complete wagon but was selling it complete so could not part it out.

    I'm wondering if anyone has a factory 1959 Dodge Coronet cigarette lighter (goes in the dash by the gauges), a hood ornament and driver side rear trim corner piece. I've included pictures of what I'm looking for. Thanks.

    My new to me 1959 Dodge Coronet

    Just an update for everyone. I got my new borescope and inspected the cylinders. They are rusty as expected...so are the valves. However, they were not as rusty as I expected... given it has sat for 48 years with no plugs in it. However, I can see a few small piles of what I would imagine is...

    Question about a stuck 326 Dodge engine

    I agree, the motor may eventually need a good rebuild. However, part of the adventure for me is seeing if I can get an old engine running. I was able to get the 394 in my Oldsmobile running after siting for 23 years and the 318 in my Belvedere running after sitting 27 years. Both run...

    Question about a stuck 326 Dodge engine

    I posted this in the forward look forum but figured it would help to post here. The engine in my 1959 Dodge Coronet is stuck. I started about a week ago putting a 50/50 mix of diesel fuel and ATF in the cylinders to lossen it up. The story behind the engine is that the original owner parked...

    My new to me 1959 Dodge Coronet

    The weekend was busy. Got the interior floor finished and painted. Also did some temporary patch work on the trunk and got that painted (I know it's not the best but just wanted something to keep any fury critters out for now until I can do a better job at a later date). Need to install the...
