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.

Casting of Valve cover for Chevy Inline 6 250 292 foundry aluminum
Video showing sand casting of a automotive valve cover. Interesting but
yet boring. Enjoy! This valve cover is the product of Autowerks. It can be
bought at www.12bolt.com . It fits the Chevy inline 6 194,230,250 and 292
engines. One of a few videos to show some of the effort that goes into
making a product.
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
1948 Chevy Fleetmaster barn find, rat rod
Nice old 1948 Chevrolet we found in an old barn in hollywood FL. This car
is all original except the 216 has been replaced with a 235. Almost the
same engine the 216 has poured bearings, and the 235 has inserts. Runs and
drives nice but needs a master cylinder. If any one has one let me know.
Also need to find where they put the vin#
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
SOLD 1951 CHEVROLET 5 WINDOW PICKUP " SOLD " Drager's 206-533-9600
Been looking for an affordable 5 window maybe this is the one. Was restored
over 20 years ago and has been garaged ever since. When we did the service
and safety check we installed a new master cylinder, new 12 volt electric
wiper motor. Its missing the right wiper arm. Installed new heater motor
and switch so you have heat. New door latches on both doors. I drove it
home from Old School Garage about 40 miles on the freeway and I will tell
you its geared low. Patrick's Automotive (520) 836-1117 has a ring and
pinion gear set that will make this 51 freeway driveable. The engine is the
216 inline six with 4 speed compound low transmission. Spilt Exhaust system just gives it a great sound. It
has been converted to 12 volts so you can put any kind of sound system you
want, as it does not have one now. Has a diamond pleat interior that looks
good. The head liner ???? its glued in felt. Easy to get the original
headliner kit and easy to install. Why didnt we do it? Keeping the price
down... I spent over $1,600 to make it drive well. Has a great body, very
solid. Chrome looks great but you can see some aging. I like these old farm
trucks as you can see by my red 53 PU. Cond. # 3.
