Hello. I have a 1941 GMC 2-ton which was born as a fire engine, has been a pick-up, and which I intend to make into a flat bed. It has a 1960 Chevy 261 engine in it. It is a challenge to drive because none of the gears are synchronized; I have to double clutch. It is close to being on the road. I am busy learning about the engine and your forum is very helpful.

Welcome to the show! You’ll find what you need here. I’d start looking for a later model SM420 transmission that has synchromesh. You’ll enjoy the truck so much more. The 261 mod is a good one. I have it in my 1 ton with the 420 and 4.10 in the rear and it is very nice to drive.

Welcome Spencer, agree with Fox, I had the SM420 4 speed in my half ton panel. They are not very expensive. Please get a few pics of the truck.

Fox, Leo, Justhorsenround and Gord&Fran: Thanks for your welcoming comments; I appreciate them. I have an interest in auto mechanics but not a lot of kowledge. My head is full of a thousand questions. The first thing I would like to get straight is the issue of oil filtration in the 261's. I have read one or two of the threads on this topic, and I just cannot get it straight. Where do I go from here?

Welcome Spenser. Consider yourself at home. Your 261 oiling question should go in the engine forum. Be patient, give it a day or two as not everyone may see the question at the same time. The 261 is a good engine.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
