The only one I recall being a Chevrolet "SMALL BLOCK" was the 265 that came out in 1955. As far as the earlier ones I thought they were a different design than the "SMALL BLOCK".

I an referring to the traditional "Small Block" Chevy engine.
And the answer is, no not the 265.

Everything I've found about Chevrolet v8 engines are the one built from 1916-1918. All references to specifically the "small block" date from it's inception in 1955. In 1976, Chevrolet introduced the "small block" in the Monza for only 2 years at 262 cu in.

Yep, the good old 262 Chevy. It was also found in the Pontiac Ventura.

Before someone asks, 1941 was just in there so someone didn't come up with the 1915 V8

Wasn’t the Monza’s other claim to fame the limited access to the spark plugs.
Required engine be lifted or inner fender removed for replacement. I don’t remember exactly which.

Old wives tale. Said the same thing about 390 mustangs, Corvettes and anything tight. I still have my Mac 36" 3/8" extension. That and a Apex wobble socket, they came out.

They could have kept the design of the 288 cu in 1915-1919 some refrences say 1916 -1919,,but any way the plugs were mounted on top near the edge of the intake,,but they would have to do something with the valve covers,,

I know they had their V-8 in 1915. I saw one in the Lemay Museum in Seattle. Only one I've ever seen.

Yeah, that's what they said. I built a V-8 Vega using all Monza parts, and I could change the plugs in less than an hour. No engine mount or exhaust disassembly required. IIRC, #5 was a royal pain since it was behind the steering shaft, but came out. I've worked on cars that were worse. My daughter's 95 Z-28 for one. By the way, no Vega ever came from the factory with a V-8, wagon or otherwise.
