    Looks like a 216 or 235 chevy.

    I found it in the "cool pics" post and it was the only shot of it.

    Anyway, it's a beauty. I've got a '51 Fleetline (sans engine/tranny) that had been set up for a SBC when I got it. I was thinking of putting a 331 Caddie in it, since I've got a couple of them, but maybe I'll just put it back to an inline.

    Thanks for the replies,

  6. The Valve cover with the wing nuts on top is a 216 style of mounting

    I would bet it's a 235. The vavle cover bolts are adapters that mimic the 216 but are actually found on the 235s. The aluminum covers only mount this way.
