Just letting you all know that I found the answer to my problem last night. I found a company that said that the early 235 6cylinders from '54 on back will not interchange with any chevy v8's, they said from 1955 to 1961 the 6 cylinder motors had been redesigned to accept a v8 bellhousing. So in the mean time I,m hoping to get started rebuilding another 235 6cylinder, and maybe hopping this one up, with a new cam, lifters, a dual carb intake, and maybe a set of fenton headers. My question is has there been any performance updates on the '53-'54 chevy powerglides? If so please let me know.
