Connecting Rod and Piston for 368 cu in Lincoln Engine

Tom Mansfield is looking for a replacement rod and piston for this 368 cu in Lincoln Engine

 
Wikipedia describes this engine as the last in a line of Ford Y Block engines built between 1952 and 1963. Early engines seem to have been designed to use in both Ford and Lincoln heavy trucks with engine capacity and horsepower increasing steadily through 1955 – 57 when the engine appears to have been devoted exclusively to Lincoln and Mercury cars.
 
Topping out with the 368 cu in (6 litre), the engine produced up to 300 horsepower with a maximum torque of over 400 ft lbs.
 

If you don’t have the parts, perhaps you can give Tom a lead on possible sources.

2018 Members BBQ

May 27 was the date of the 2018 Members BBQ held at Eamon’s Garage for the first time

 
Many thanks to Brian C for donning his chef’s apron again as king of the BBQ. Thanks to Herman for making sure that the actual BBQ got to Eamon’s for the event and finally thanks to the 50+ members and their guests who participated.
 
This year we had the added treat of being able to see, first hand, the work which Ray Bouillet and members of the Eamon’s Historical Society have undertaken thus far in restoration of the Garage.
 
The weather was just about right. Not too hot. Not too windy. The social time was good. There was plenty of food, courtesy of the salad’s and treats which members brought along to share.
 
If you couldn’t be with us this year, then make sure to attend in 2019.
 
Here’s a few images of the classics on display.
