Ed (Forty9), I have used two sets of those sway bar bushings (later style, 51-55). The most recent set was very tight on the bar (non-silicone, non aromatic, body lubricant is helpful). I think some people have reported a poor fit in recently bo

That is great news Mike! I know how its like sweating bullets on that initial run. I can't wait until I can take mine out. I am probably a good two years away from an actual drive.

Problem solved! I put new wires in and reconnected the coil wire. Runs like a top again! Thanks everybody! Still have to put in the other inline filter, but I didn't have any clamps, so that will come later.

Sounds like the original owner had that part right. Run a wire from IGN on the switch to one side of the ballast resistor. Run a wire from the the other side of the ballast resistor to the + on the coil. Assumeing you have a stomp start, run a wir

Pre68Dave's Blog ( http://chev235guy.blogspot.com/ ) is what you were thinking. Its important you don't use a 216 distributor in a new style 235/261 engine. The metals are different. Not sure if that causes wobble. If you run your distributor in a n

To go back to the OP first question. The "wobble" you observed. Can be caused by a bad cam, a bent dizzy shaft and...by a missing spring and felt/fiber washer under the grease cup. Make certain the fiber washer and spring are in place to ta

If you can see the flywheel, check to see if you have 4 teeth per inch (139 tooth SIX VOLT Flywheel), or a 5 teeth per inch 168 tooth (12 Volt) flywheel. You can drop the access pan underneath to verify. The starters are not interchangeable so its a

One thing I picked up from this site that was simple and effective. Offset the Neoprene seal. Just put it in so the ends of the seal do not line up with the block surface. Easy to do just push it a bit to one side. It ends up low on one side of the c

First of all Bishop, the oil filter for a 1954 engine only filters about 12% (arguable that it can be as much as 18%) of your oil. If both ports were completely blocked off, your engine will still get ALL of its oil pressure and run the very same as

I am in the middle of replacing the wiring on my 1950 3600. The previous owner had it wired in such a way as to make it run, with no concern for anything else. Currently, he had a wire running from IGN on ignition switch to one side of the ignitor b

The pressure should be coming into the canister at the midpoint of the side, and exiting out the bottom. There's a small (1/16") hole partway up the standpipe that controls oil flow back to the oil pan. If that hole is plugged up, there's no t

Hi folks, I have been reading tclederman's site, pre68Dave's site, and search on here trying to reason out the oil flow for the 235. I can't see why I would have pressure up the return line. I am going to pull the valve cover to re-verify my flow up
