41 Chevy AK Work In Progress
Got a retirement project,
1941 Chevy 1/2 Ton Pickup (AK)

Want to rebuild existing 216 ci. engine. BUT its a mess, so I'm exploring purchasing one in better condition,
I hear they are all over the place, but I must be looking in the wrong places.
Any suggestions? Thanks...............

What parts do you need? I have several 216's in the scrap pile but no precautions were taken to protect them from the weather. One with a new carb, generator, starter, fuel pump, water pump, and gaskets appears fresh but it is split down the whole left side from freezing. It's been in the pile since last summer without a valve cover so who knows? If your block can be bored and babbited it might be of some use.

Welcome to Stovebolt.com

We are about 100 miles from each other.

If you want to contact a specific member about parts, do it in a Private Message.
Any Person-to-Person conversations/negotiations should take place in Private Messages.
If you want obtain a part (like obtaining an engine), do it in in a Parts Wanted ad.
If you want to ask about vendors of specific parts, post those questions in the General Forum.

I think you have to make about 5 posts before you can PM or place a Want Ad?
So, posts about your truck and where/how you found it, and what you want to use it for, and what you need to do with/to it.

Check out the Tech Tips for all sorts of advice/information (a lot of questions can be answered there):
"Getting Started" in the Tech Tips is a good place to start.

- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.
