I'm guessing here (not being any sort of expert), but...  What I'd try
first would be this: make a copy of ot1c.etx, re-name it 8rc.etx, and
change it to load 8r.etx rather than ot1.etx.

Then...  Maybe a line like:

\installfont {ptmbc8y} {ptmb8r,latin} {8yc} {8y} {ptm}{b}{sc} {}

in a fontinst file would do the trick.

It might be that:

\installfont {ptmbc8y} {ptmb8r,8y} {8yc} {8y} {ptm}{b}{sc} {}

is a better idea.

(you'll need to add some other lines around that one, including something
to create ptmb8r.mtx from ptmb8a.afm; ask again if you don't know how)

Hope this helps
