Hello, Have an L6 out of a 54 chevy pu but no casting #'s are on the block just stamped on a boss are the following, 0736296 F54X. Maybe this was a "replacement" engine back then, possibly for a one ton? (X) I'm looking for the full pressured oil sys to go in a 36 2dr sed and keep the orig drive line and wheels. I have #2 250 L6's dated 1966-67 but really don't want to use them. Thanks Don

1936 was the first production year for the 216 engine, I believe, and your 1954 235 will be almost a bolt-in swap for it. The 1936 bellhousing should bolt up to the 235 block, and I believe the flywheel, clutch, and other drivetrain parts would require little, if any modification to work. Be forewarned- - -you're going to get your knuckles rapped by at least one old curmudgeon for mentioning "car" on a truck-related website. Send me a private message if those 250's need a new home- - - -I might have a few parts to help out with the 235 engine swap.

1937 was the first 216.
Almost nothing from the 206 engine will fit a 235.
1954 casting number is down by the fuel pump.
If you search 235 in a 1936 you will find lots of info I have already posted.
It is a easy swap with the right parts.
