To add confusion they were still running the Poly in 66. So you do need to know what engine your gleeming parts off of.
The Poly engine ran from 1955-1966/67.
The LA engine ran from 1964-2002/2003.
A lot of parts interchange between the 1962 to 1966 polyspherical A 318 engine and the LA series of Mopar motors (318, 273, 340, 360), including:
Internally balanced 273-318-340 harmonic balancers
Valve springs, retainers and keepers
Main bearings (NOT 360 though)
Crankshafts (reground 360's included)
Starter, both standard and high torque
318 LA ring set
timing chain and sprocket
oil pan (not 360) “The 360 front and rear seal/front timing cover is bigger than those of the 273/318LA/340 to accommodate the larger main bearings.”
distributor pump drive gear
distributor, standard points or electronic
