Spring is here!

If you are bringing the old truck out of winter storage, or up from the woods, be sure to check the Tech Tip for a few helpful hints.

If you have some work to do before you go cruising, be sure to check out what parts you need from American Classic Truck Parts. They still offer a 10% discount to Stovebolters.

well I am not having much luck getting engine going and now I need another 216 block, so if anyone knows some one who may have one I would be interested in looking at it. I do live in Rockhampton QLD. Come to far in to resto to turn back, trying my patience.
Cheers

I don't know how many Chevrolet parts are floating around down under, patience is a virtue; hopefully something will appear.

Have you considered widening your engine selection to include 235's and 261's? They will fit and can be disguised to look much like a 216.
