Reading the great information here every night and learning a lot. Thanks to all who so willingly share your experience and knowledge.

I have a Rebuilt 235 Engine out of fully restored 1957 Chevy Belair. Reason pulled out the engine is to go to LS motor swap and switch to automatic trans. I can offer this to you. It was last running September 2019. I wasn't smart enough to take a video of it running prior to removing it. I may be able to start it up on the floor it neccesary . I am about 2 1/2 hours west of Philadelphia toward York PA

I think we're OK here. The OP says he's looking for an engine. Our purpose is to put those looking in touch with those who have. I did remove the items not asked about by the OP.
