Crank but no start. Grandpas_48 Wed Jun 29 2022 04:51 AM Hello everyone,
Going to get straight to it. I have a Chevy 235 that cranks over but doesn't start. About a month ago it started up and idled fine. We changed plugs, and wires. It has spark, and fuel but doesn't start. I have it rigged with a toggle switch ignition and all that wiring is still the same. We haven't changed anything. The links below are videos of what I am getting. Hope they work. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you.

Thoughts, Opinions & Suggestions - 1947 4400 Rat Rod Project CTrujillo Wed Jun 29 2022 03:03 AM Hello Stivebolt Community,

I want to start off with, I don't know a lot about my truck and how to achieve the end result I am looking for. Hope to learn and get some ideas here. I have a 1947 4400 dually. It was a stakebed farm truck in another life that now gets put in the yard for Halloween and taken on beer runs to the general store.

I really have three goals at this time. 1st is to lower the truck, 2nd is to put a big block in it and 3rd is to keep the original chassis.

Spoke with Sid's Drop Axels and there is no hope for a drop axel to lower the front end. This pushes me towards removing the leaf springs front and rear and adding air bags and trailing arms if that works.

For the big block I am thinking of an older carbureted 454. Dont really care about the horse power as much as reliability and sound. Always loved that sound.

Curious if anyone has taken on either if these and wouldn't mind sharing any thoughts, concerns, lessons learned.

This would be done in stages over the next few years. Should I lower it 1st then motor or the other way around?

Are there any other lowering options out these for a 1.5 ton while keeping the original chassis? I have considered an axel flip but heard that's a no no.

Again, any thoughts, opinions or suggestions are very appreciated,

Curtis

Help with chassis number and engine number Ron E Dodge Wed Jun 29 2022 02:06 AM I have a 1937 GMC Model T14B. The wheels are 6 lug.

1) Does the "B" in the model number indicates that it is a 126" wheel base? Or, does the "B" indicate something else?

2) The chassis number is metal stamped into the data plate (positioned center on opposite firewall side; inside cab) and also stamped on frame on passenger side slightly forward of the RF wheel.

3) The chassis number is: 21333

4) The engine number (stamped on the horizontal surface of the metal pad, front left of the head) is: F616294

Any assistance with this would be appreciated.

Thank you.

54 Rear Bumper and brackets roaburto Wed Jun 29 2022 01:48 AM Southern California- I am looking for rear bumper and brackets for my 1954 Truck. Chrome or painted. Will consider all conditions. My truck is a daily driver and isn’t a perfect show truck. Looking for something functional that I might clean up some.

Thanks, RA

bellhousing questions dirtball Wed Jun 29 2022 01:26 AM I am installing a 1955 chevy 235 into a 1955 1st series 3600 pickup. I have a bellhousing 3837001. This is a 55-59 235 bellhousing that has the angles pads that are needed for 55 1st series trucks (correct?), and the bolt pads for foot starter. The question is.... I took the flywheel cover tin off another 1st series truck 235/4 speed and they are different bolt patterns than the 3837001 bellhousing. I dont know the casting number of bellhousing in other truck but looks exactly the same. ........ are there differences in flywheel cover tin for the 235's? are cars and truck tin different? do 3 speed and 4 speed transmissions have different tin? do different diameter cluctches have different tin? Just want to confirm what the exact issues are before I go searching for correct items. thanks..

1960 C60 steering shaft Joints robVee Wed Jun 29 2022 12:49 AM Hi all. I have a 1960 Chevrolet C60 dump truck. The steering shaft joints, top and steering box end need replacement. Looks like I will need to remove the steering box to remove the shaft. At that time I can count how many splines. Looked around just a little. It was suggested I put in a U-joint type. Anybody been here before? Any ideas appreciated. Thanks.

Cracked block - need direction on swap or replacement kcolg Tue Jun 28 2022 11:22 PM Hi all.

I have a 1941 1.5 ton truck with the 228 motor, and I'm located in Western NY. I noticed a crack in the side of the block that is leaking antifreeze pretty good, I was hoping for suggestions on three points.

Any idea/suggestion on a repair? I read a few forms on here about using extreme temp JB, which is my current plan. I called multiple engine shops and places that specialize in cast iron. No one wants to touch it or will guarantee their work.

Does anyone have a line on a replacement block or where I should begin to look?

I read the motor is pretty hard to find, so I was also considering a motor/tranny swap. Any idea, or suggestions on what might work? Shower thought was for a 350sbc and manual trans, something that would make driveability much easier. Maybe the drive line out of a Chevy pickup?

The truck is a fire truck, all original and in really great shape, it's a real shame this happened but I'm guessing it's been this way for years, if not decades going back to when the fire department owned it.

Thanks all, appreciate the help.

Kansas City Area Craigslist - Grizzly Mill Gdads51 Tue Jun 28 2022 02:50 PM NOT MINE

New add found this morning in Kansas City area (Prairie Village) for a Grizzly horizontal mill plus host of tooling equipment.

https://kansascity.craigslist.org/tls/d/prairie-village-grizzly-horizontal/7502119806.html

Not sure of how much of a deal this one may be, but looks to be basically unused.

Just in case a fellow "bolter" has a need (lol).
