I am doing one for a customer.. 54 Chrysler New Yorker. Not cheap!!

This engine had extensive rust in cylinders. Had to be bored at least .060. Could not find any sources stocking decent compression pistons, so I bored it to 3.875" to get readily available rings and ordered custom pistons for that bore size.

Also had problems locating decent undersize bearings. Hot Heads Research & Racing Early Chrysler Hemi Home has been some help.
