      Thanks, Dan. Naturally, they would have to be STD, as everyone I see needs boring.

        Guess you'll have to use them in a 327/350" Chevrolet.

            Nope. Packard V8s used the older generation K-wall (.200") radial thickness rings while most everyone else had gone to the D-wall (.185") rings.

            All the repop pistons from Egge use D-wall and the custom forgings I order I usually go .043" width.

              Several years back I purchased a set of piston rings for a 352 CI Packard V8.....At the time the counter man told me the rings were also a direct replacement for a 392 CI Chrysler engine. (both 4" bore)

              He could have been wrong......I guess.

                And while we're on the subject of parts interchange, 318 CI Dodge-Plymouth hydraulic valve lifters will fit and function perfectly in the 320--352--and 374 CI Packard V8.

                (Speaking of early 318, not later "A" series small block 318)
