153 Chevy II 4 cylinder

I have purchased a running (60K) Chevy II 4 cylinder motor.

I wish to build a small pick up to drive around in my old age and speed is no longer an issue.

I have just about everything from the flywheel forward and am looking for specs and ideas about transmissions and just generalities of what the actual motor is so I can do repair work and order parts with some common knowledge of what is inside this motor.

Any information will be appreciated and I welcome all comments about this motor.

Thank you in advance for anyone that adds any information (to which I am willing to share) to this request.

My understanding is that it is basically a 230/250 Chevy six with 2 cylinders cut off and uses a lot of the same parts.......Sounds like a fun engine to play with

If it,s a chevyII engine [153 c.i.] it's NOT an iron duke .!!
Most any Chevy manual trans or auto will bolt up .

The Iron Duke was a series of inline 4 cylinders

starting in 1977 and most of them were in Pontiacs. This is a 1967 inline 4 cylinder from a postal jeep. It is the same motor that was in the Chevy II Nova from 1962 to 1968 or 69. It is not the Iron Duke motor, but thank you anyway. This is from they gentleman I purchased the motor from.

the 151 was increased in displacement to 181 and was used in marine applications for many years. I'm pretty sure the current production marine 3.0L 4cyls are the same 181 ci... Very strong runners.. My dad had a '73 Starcraft Chieftan mark 5 21' cabin cruiser, with the 140hp version. It would run a bit under 55 MPH on plane, and for a boat of it's size with that small of an engine is quite fast... anyway, the common hop- up for the 151 is the marine cylinder head. Should be very economical. IIRC the 151 was primarilly designed to break 30 MPG in a Compact car

The 151 is not the same engine, it is not the same as the 181, the 153 was increased to 181 & is still in production for various uses incl. marine .

One of my friends who is on various forums has a Model A Sedan Delivery with a mercruiser 4banger and a T10. You'll have to do some engineering to get the Hydraulic clutch correct, along with I think a jeep flywheel. Also you may have to have a machine shop shorten the pilot on the input or lengthen the splines on the maindrive (input gear)
