Starting an old 283 chevy engine part 1
My son rebuilt this engine in highschool about 15 years ago. We put this in a 67 chev pickup and ran it till the truck rusted away. I junked the truck out and saved the engine. It was sitting in my shed in my way for about 5 years now so I decided to set it outside. So I'm starting it up before I tarp it up for now. Its got about 35,000 miles on it since the rebuild. It has a some what of a high lift cam in, but I don't remember what he put in it.
My First Run With 1960 283cu. inch in a 1965 Chevy nova 2
I Pulled the inline 6 194 cu. inch. we put in a rebult 1960-1/2 283 cu. it has its original bell steal crank and forgded pistons flat top. federal berrings. i let the pro's ridge and hone the block. i put it together. steel oil shaft and big block pump. i re-routed oil pick up and using a morroso pan ,the heads are original too block, and have stainless steel valve's, harden seats, bronze guides. a sickle style alternator bracket. one belt. short water pump. Elderbrock Total Power Pack, lifters, head springs, cam, push rods, intake and carborator. the headers did'nt fit. so i used original mcdonalds manafolds, cherry bombs, and stainless steel pipes, police cruiser 78 caprice exhuast bend fits most gm cars lol. the gauges are on the engine's air filter. oil lines and fire walls cause oil loss. temp is a secondary ground when primary is shorted . amps shorts out thru dash and fire wall. put them on the engine and they will last for years and you dont have to go back n forth to read the gauges. original 3 on the tree manual transmition fresh clutches speacial order, yes thats a 67 chrome radiator. sweet.
