I have a 1958 Super Meteor and I am having a hard time find a drive side cylinder . Threw a rod last summer .
 I was wondering if a Trailblazer cylinder would fit ?
Does anyone out there have a cylinder? Constellation would do ....or maybe a chief
 I have tried Hitchcock's their price would leave me crippled  ,-)    cost an arm and a leg
I would appreciate any info

All the 700s should do, including Apache, Trailblazer and Chief. The only difference I know, is in the little holes drilled or not in the front and/or in the back of the cylinder sleeve where it meets the cam shaft tunnels.

I blew a connecting rod last summer . I had the case welded but the rod and the cylinder were damaged

Could the damaged cylinder be bored out an re-linered?

I reckon the other connecting rod will be blowing soon as well.

Might want to investigate steel con rods before you have do do it all again.
