putting a 318 Poly in my 1955 Dodge

Postby 37fleetwood » Tue Jun 16, 2009 8:56 pm

has any one put a 318 into an earlier Dodge using the Floating Power mounts? I have a 1959 318 Poly which I would like to install while I rebuild the 270 Hemi in my Coronet. I'm guessing I need the front mounts off a 277 or maybe a 301 Plymouth engine. 1955 was the last year for Floating Power, in 1956 they went to side motor mounts. I'm hoping someone here has a 1954 or1955 Plymouth so I could get some decent photos, and maybe even find someone who has some of these parts left over from a project.
Thanks!

well I 'm answering my own question. in 1955 the Plymouth V-8 was the 1954 Dodge 241 Poly. there was a 259, but it was also the other block. so now I'm looking for information on side mounts on a 1956 Plymouth V-8 car.
Thanks!
