Hi. O.K. I cleaned out the stalls here of the fresh manure, dunno what all that was about.
To clarify a few things though:
of Stovebolt.com have always allowed discussion of the bits and pieces that are shared between the trucks and cars that fall into the pre-1973 category. Things like the engines, transmissions, axles... the drivetrain basically... maybe the heater assembly or the electrical system.
They are aware that some Chevy/GMC truck folks have old GM cars as well and would like to ask their stovebolt buddies about their engines or what not. As long as the post is about the bits and pieces and placed in the appropriate forum and it is disclosed it is about a car or wagon whatever, there is no issue.
Now, if someone started a whole thread about their non truck project, that would probably get the ax.
The original poster did nothing wrong asking for information about their 261 engine which clearly falls within the purview of the 'bolt and more specifically here within the engine shop.
Please help them out with any information you may be able to share.
Carry on and happy wrenching.
