The engine had not run for a number of years and was scrapyard bound so
after sanding down the points and giving it some fuel it ran wide open for
about 10-12 minutes before it threw some rods, the oil caught on fire and
ran out of fuel.

1950 Rat rod Chevy

the trunk, but they are still pretty solid. Everything else is fine. Fuel

1951 Chevrolet Pickup 216 Freed up from being seized up part 1
This is a 216 complete rolling chassie that I got from a friend of mine. It
was a running motor and it sat for a while with the cab and bed off of it
outside. Im guessing it rained inside through the valve cover or just
moisture? Anyway it seized up tight! I put transmission fluid down all of
the cylinders and let it sit for about 4 months. I finally got back to it
and tried to get it to move again from the front of the engine and couldn't
get it to move. So I took the dust cover off from the fly wheel and with a
little help with a pry bar, I got it to move a little and a little more
until it was turning over on its on. In the process it bent two pushrods,
where two of the intake valves were stuck also. So here is the process I
did of removing the rocker arm assembly and cleaning and reinstalling the
46 chevy 216 - it runs!!!
After close to 8 years of restoring this truck today 3/29/08, I finally
heard it run for the first time!!! More details here: www.46chevytruck.com
Chevrolet 235 Engine on Simtester
A 1960 Chevrolet 235 cid engine on the Simtester for a lost-stress
break-in. A great way to pre-initiate the cam and lifters prior to engine
start-up and break-in.
235 Fired Up!
Todd's '53 straight six 235 with a '56 head fired up and ready to go in.
Thanks to Jay for all his help.
1950 Chevrolet Truck; running 216 engine.
I saved this one from the crusher. Perhaps one of my favorite sounds... a
running Stove bolt engine. I was able to get the numbers matching
(original) 216 engine running after sitting for nearly 20 years. Splash
oil lubricated connecting rods; pressured mains, cartridge style oil filer
and oil bath air filer. Short block is; as found but, I had the cylinder
head rebuilt with new: valves, guides, springs and seats. At the time of
this video, I had been working on the truck for over 1 year.
The truck was named Cannonball by the previous owner.
Watch for Cannonball Restoration videos in the future.
