Hey all, I have a 62 Galaxie that has a 406 in it. It threw a rod over the weekend and I am looking for a rod and piston. Best I can figure they are discontinued everywhere. Does anyone know anyone making them or have a piston and a rod they might want to sell. Mine is a 4.18 bore. Any help is greatly appreciated.

thanks,
Jim

Jim,
You are lucky it wasn't worse. Was your piston an original Ford piece?
406 pistons are only available from the custom manufacturers. I would ask if the pistons are forged before plunking down $$.
The 406 rod is shared with any pre-lemans hipo application, 390 hipo, early 427(I think). Check Steve Christ's book.

Long time friend of mine died last year and had a 1962 Galaxie hot rod under construction with 390. He really knew the parts, but I don't . What casting or rod numbers are you particularly looking for? Will take a look in the pile in the shed. Have crankshafts too.
