Hey Guys thanks for all the help so far, you guys are the best....I have a 50 Deluxe Coupe w/ a rebuilt 216 that runs like a charm...but looking to the future & from what I have read the 216 due to it's oiling problems, Babbit rods, lack of oil filter and sooo many other problems have made me think about a swap. I just bought a Fenton dual carb set-up & love running a I-6 so I have been thinking about a swap to a 235(all parts-header & intake will fit both). From what I've been reading the motor should slip right in, motor mounts won't be a problem, and the trans w/ torque tube will still work(3 on the tree). What I really need to know is, what are the benefits of the swap????? Is there a lot more power from the 235, is it more reliable? What are the pitfalls with this swap? And I guess lastly is the 216 really that bad of a motor???? I have had the car for a month, besides the carb being jacked up-hence the 2 pot swap, the car runs great & I love driving it, but I want to continue driving/restoring/showing and loving this beast.....Just looking for an opinion, a little sage like advice. So guys hit me with your best shot.....& please be kind, no assholes telling me to junk the whole car & buy a import, or send them the car for free and they will give it a good home, or anything super negative. Just looking for your .02 cents. thanks again!
