laalaaWell, I'd bet that it is not a 1951 Chevrolet truck motor.nono

But, it is a freebie.

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

Looks like a late sixties 261, the valve cover is similar to a 292. No HEI and PCV and later style air cleaner are some clues. But like im said "Free is free".

It is most likely a 230 or 250 (see image below)

It is not a 261 (which were produced from 1954-1962/63).

Maybe someone knows 292s?

See above, the 292 has a different valve cover?

292 pushrod covers are about 6" tall, easy to distinguish from smaller engines.

230 and 250 engines use the same block casting and bore size. The only difference is the crankshaft. You'd need to check the stamped number by the distributor to get a good identification.

Its a 250 from 68 to 74. Probably from a car. It has a Mono-jet carb 68 up. The air cleaner is a car type. The point type dist was dropped after 74.
