A real handy item with a chopped top to see traffic lights - a prism of sorts. They used to be about a buck when I was a young tad

Why do I do this to myself

When did Chevrolet go to a fully pressurized lube oil system in their 'stovebolt' 6 and in what specific case was it first used?

A second part, how were these non-pressurized lube oil system engines lubricated??

I had forgotten exactly why and when it was introduced but Wikipedia did remind me - and yes I did remember approximately from actually working on these engines, but wasn't totally sure of the year.

I'm guessing here but probably around 1930 and in a truck.

Okay how about this.
In 1954 Chevrolet produced their famous "Full oil pressure 235 cubic inch six cylinder" in trucks only and it soon proved to be one of the greats among engines. However, at the same time a lesser known "big brother" to this base engine was being used. This was the quality built 261 cubic inch six cylinder! This 261 was available only in 2 ton (6000 or C60 series) trucks and school buses. Both of these engines had the full pressure systems. That is what I found on the web. But I'm not sure about this because it was probably put in the 1953 corvette first.

And I always heard the older style oiling system referred too as "Dip and sling".

Chris - you're close enough. For the passenger cars, it was the Powerglide equipped models with the 235cid engine as well.

The old oil system is the dipper type - and if you have ever taken a vertical cylinder Briggs & Stratton lawn mower engine apart - same thing (hmmmmmm). Ford did their pressurized oil systems in 1932.

If you changed the oil regular like the book said, how many miles could you get out of the bottom end on an engine that had the dipper type oil system?

I didn't start turning wrenches until about 1975 and I started out in body work first so I missed working any of the sixes with the old oil system.

The original owner's manual for that vintage of Chebbie used to say 1000 miles between changes, use 10W in the winter and 30W in the summer and to use a straight oil, non-detergent.

There were probably 30 fittings that got greased at the same time. Even then, lube($1.50) and a 5 quart oil change($2.50/$3.75) was $5 to $6 max. A 10,000 mile tuneup(points, plugs, condenser), or at spring and fall was $10 to $15.

Sorry - reverie took over, an age thing!!!
