So, whilst snagging a 57 t-bird from her resting place for the last 47 years I happened upon a motor the PO had planned on using as the birds drive train. I offered a modest sum and backed my parts getter up and loaded up the disassembled motor. I have hauled it around in the back of my truck until I had time tonight after work to unload it. The mill is a 56 Desoto hemi. The block was magnafluxed, ridge reamed, tanked, new cam bearings installed and painted then bagged for the last 20 years. The PO had used masking tape and paper to seal it up and the residue lingers on the mounting surfaces. the cylinders are stock bore and lightly rusted on the surface. A light ball honing ought to improve that and I need to clean off the tape residue. While I was taking inventory tonight I found the spark plug tubes and head bolts A cleaned set of std pistons with new wrist pins. Cleaned and assembled rocker arms A box of pulleys, motor mounts, pumps, bolts and stuff I have no idea what they are. Yes, the harmonic balancer is there with the mounting bolt. A complete felpro gasket set and a nice little holley A cam in a box labeled only RV2 and a crank in a bag labeled std rods and mains, nicely polished like it was done yesterday. A new oil pump as well. A full set of push rods, new main bearings, new rod bearings, new rings, new lifters, new timing set And two nicely machined heads, assembled with new valves and springs. Valve covers were there but no wire covers, oil pan filled with bolts and the old timing set. no timing cover or distributor but I found the hold down and old fuel pump. Seems the OP was all ready to re-assemble but never got around to it. Kinda sad but I will take it over for him from here. I found a receipt in one of the boxes for the bearings/gaskets/lifters/etc, it was dated 1987. It is stamped S23, a 56 Desoto 330 hemi and I did find the 2 bbl intake that was mounted on it. I think a re-assembly is in order after a thorough cleaning. What a unique find. Makes you wonder what is in the shop/barn/garage you pass by daily. Now what to do with it?
