Could someone please email me a picture of the correct heat Riser spring placement on the 216/235?

Thanks

Let's hope that someone posts a diagram/illustration of the heat-riser assembly.
I cannot find one, but, I dimly recall that a GM manual has a good illustration.

- 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.

Here you go. Two pages from the '48-'51 Chevy Truck Shop Manual that describe function and show the spring (second link/page).

Heat Riser Function - '48-'51 Truck Shop Manual p. 6-4
Heat Riser Spring Image - '48-'51 Truck Shop Manual p. 6-5

excellent, drdoug

That is what I was looking for - my aging memory and new laptop/keyboard/screen and OS-version is making searching slow-and-painful.
Change and aging is a pain.

I hear ya, Tim. I'm off topic, now, but good news in my case... my orthopod doc told my wife my knees wouldn't take working under a vehicle on jack stands any longer. Guess who has a lift in his shop? LOL.

That’s too funny drdoug. Getting your doctor to convince your wife to let you install a lift! Genius! I still have to roll over on my stomach, get on my knees, and grab onto something to help me stand up. Only 67, but a bad car accident, knee surgery, back surgery, and ankle surgery leaves a guy aching all over.

I had a battle with my new heat riser spring. I was convinced I had it right like the picture in the manual, but after a call to JC they told me I had it in backwards. It was harder to install the other way, but works perfect like it should. I would post a pic, but my truck is in hibernation. The way it looks on mine, when the engine is cold the counterweight is upright, with the heat door open. Soon after starting it rotates down and closes off the heat from the exhaust manifold. If I remember, trying to figure it out the spring would wind-up tighter with a heat gun, and it can be installed backwards I found out.
