Hello,
My name is Leighton Knisley and I'm from Lovelock, Nevada. I recently purchased this 1938 Chevy from my Dad who bought it roughtly eight years ago. Before I bought it, I was looking for a 37 or 38 Chevy pickup and that took quite a while, trying to find one that I could afford. So after a long while, I was close on purchasing one but my dad said to hold off a bit because he might have found something. The next day, he completely surprised me in selling his to me! Since he bought it from Lemom Valley close to Reno, he hadn't done much to it. SO I'm starting to fix up the ole' Chevy and am looking forward to completing it! http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n611/19Chevy38Guy/38%20Chevy/IMG_1323.jpg

Welcome Leighton, You will have to load your pictures onto some site like photobucket and then you can link them here. See the directions at the lower left margin of this page.

Welcome to the Stovebolt Leighton. You have come to a good place. I've been hanging around this place since back around '97 and have found it very very helpful. Lots of nice guys and truck loads of knowledge. Good luck on the 38. Let us know if/how we can help.

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

I got a pair of those new Memory Foam shoe inserts. Hasn't helped much- When I walk to another room, I still can't remember why.

Allrighty, so far I've been working on first getting the motor to run through the tank and fuel lines. So I needed to order a few parts and they're on their way, hopefully by this weekend or the beginning of next week I'll have this running! Here's the engine I plan on cleaning up after I get it running properly: http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n611/19Chevy38Guy/38%20Chevy/IMG_1340.jpg
Here's another one of other side: http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n611/19Chevy38Guy/38%20Chevy/IMG_1343.jpg

I can't wait to get started on the rest of the pickup, http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n611/19Chevy38Guy/38%20Chevy/IMG_1336.jpg I have a lot of parts that came off of it when we disassembled it that seem they are the original parts. I'll be keeping you posted as I journey through this exciting time!

Yeehaw! smile Well, I got it running and it just fired up and sounded great! I started it right now to see if the fuel pump even worked, so I put a hose from the fuel pump to those red five gallon jugs of gas in the bed away from the motor, primed it up, had my brother put some gas in the carburetor to help it start since it hasn't for quite some time, and presto, it started! smile No real major problems (knocks,etc.) Just need to replace the gasket on the valve cover and side timing cover! What a joy, I was hoping that I could keep the old 216 in it! Now it's getting the tank put in and check the clutch. I have a video of it if you're interested, photobucket would take a lot of time to upload, even with my high speed internet. Anyway, just keeping you posted on the progress! smile Have a great weekend!

Grandpa and I spent about two hours working on the pickup, and from grandpa's personal experience in hearing certain engine knocks and noises, some I didn't hear at first, he says that the engine is fine, but if I would like to run it for a long time without having to do any major work on it, it would be better to have it looked at. So, now I'm on the hunt to find someone who knows their 216-six cylinder motors. If you know of someone near the Nevada area maybe if freight won't cost much and the job, I might be interested. That's the update on the pickup for now, hopefully soon I can locate someone and have the engine fixed the right way. Will keep you up to date! smile Thanks for looking in.

You should probably put this request in one of the other forums, as not everyone checks this one. Maybe try the engine and driveline forum, or else General truck talk.
