I have a complete, good-running 250 with 61k original miles on it sitting in my shop. Came out of my '71 Pontiac Ventura. It's available if you're interested. I also have some split headers for it.

As others have suggested, it depends on whether you have a Mopar 230 or a Chevy 230. Care to share?

George Asche- 814.354.2621

Nobody better, plan to spend an hour on the phone.

Like said abouve, Stovebolt is great. Shave the original head .70, get stovebolts split exhaust, dual carb manifold and talk to edgy about a crank. You should be good to go.

I used a shop in Waco to do my machine work, bought all of my parts from Terrell Machine in DeLoen, Texas. I thing that the shop in Waco was Landsdale machine or something close. I can get you the name if you want it you can pm me, also a man in Gatesville, Texas that does Flat head Fords and has a complete machine shop in his back yard. He did the crank in my 218 MoPar.

Awesome SSD... Wish I would have asked him about one last week, you'd be SOL. ha! I am building one for the future, I just hopped up the 201 for now. I have a 50's hemi, but decided to keep the flattie in the '34! Good luck and have fun. Let me know how the 230 works out.

Thanks SSD... PM me and let me know what he said about pricing to your door. That way I can make an informed decision. I found a 218 local for 125$ and can build from there.

If you want to rebuild your own engine the flathead six is a good one to start with. Very simple, parts are available cheap. Speed equipment scarce and expensive but you can get nearly as much HP by modifying the stock parts.

Wow... Terrell Machine is still in business? I bought a lot of stuff from them back in the late 70's.... LOL

I have an old Dodge flat 6 at my shop, not sure if it is a 218 or 230.

I am in Ft. Worth if I can help out with your motor!
