        Oops I thought you were talking about the value of the rods. My bad. It's by Galen Govier and this one came from A&A Transmissions but most Mopar parts sellers sell them.

                  I've never seen a factory floating rod in a 360.

                    were those not pressed pin 318/360 rods that someone bushed? Larry Shephards book says those were pressed pin 360 and 318 numbers...? 2899495 were stock 340 floaters

                    Not all were bushed. Most of the 318 and 360 2bbl's were press fit.

                      I wonder if the 340 rods were bushed and the 318 and 360 rods not.

                        I sold a set of 645 rods and pistons that came out of a 1972 Duster 318 that were bushed. Plus I have sold another set here that were bushed.

                            Everything I see online says 318, 340 and 360. We all know the 340 rods were all bushed so.....

                              Here is a 645 rod from 1970 340
                              Free Floating Bushing Style
                              (e-bay pic)

                              Slip a wrist pin in that bushing end to see how wore it is. If it is out of spec it gets to be some bucks to have them re-bushed and fit. That affects the price of their value.

                              Can sell them as cores for rebuilding too. 340s got run hard, usually need the re-bush.

                              Little hard to read, but says 645.
