    I have a '49 Fleetline that my boys & I are fixing up for them to drive. Yesterday, I picked up the entire drivetrain out of a '69 Camaro, washed it, and am now hoping someone can help me identify the components:

    Inline 6, casting #3921968, says GM 69 underneath that, then CON 2, and the "clock" is at the 4 position, serial #F0911AN. I found a place to run the casting #, and found out it was either a 230, or a 250, original equipment in a chevrolet or oldsmobile in 69 to 72. I would like to know if it is a 230, or a 250, and any other information possible.

    Can't locate casting or serial numbers on the head

    The intake has what looks like a casting #3923418, GM 36

    The carburator is a 1 barrel "Monojet", it says "Factor tested Carburators" on the side, and on the top it has stamped: 7041021, 134-71 1D

    The exhaust has a number, a big "GM", with "932" even bigger next to it, with 3915 underneath the "GM", which makes it look like it could be combined to make a casting #3915932.


    Powerglide, can't find any markings other than patent #s and a hand written #82272

    Rear axle, has 67890 on the axle tube, and then on the various webs it has: GM 71, 3969340(casting #?), NF, and 6309. The cover is held on with 10 bolts.

    Any help I can get, regarding displacement, original application, ratios, etc would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Just a FYI, the 194-292 chevy motors are alot longer than the 235/216... i had on ei n a 49 chevy coupe.

    you can do it, but i had to run an electric pusher, im sure i might have been able to slide the engine back more, but not much thats for sure.

    Thanks Tom,

    I was aware of that, and will probably also put in an electric fan. Have already installed a new wiring harness in the '49.
