235 engine id
I purchased a '48 chevy stepside that has a 235 in it. I have not been able to find if my engine id search is correct. I see different data on different sites...
The engine has JAD349909 on the block, just behind the distributor. From "googlin" it seemed that the engine was from a 1951 Passenger car. And there are two hold downs in the valve cover, so I take it that this is not the desired 235.
I hadn't tried starting it yet, needs fuel cleaned, oil change, wires, points etc... and I am worried that enough of the wiring looks in terrible shape that I fear putting power to it.
My 59 apache (running) has an engine # F1215J, the only thing I could fathom was it came from Flint plant. Not sure it is original but it does seems to be the right 235... i guess.
thanks in advance
