I just started my first big project, a 51 Jeepster mounted on a 2wd s10 (Jeepster51/10.) I got it as "mostly complete," it's a runner but needs a lot of electrical work. Nothings organized, just a rats nest under the dash, with the occasional inline fuse holder.
I've got all winter, so...
So the other day i traded some guy a cummins engine for the chevy small block engine, and i am having a hard time identifying it, all the numbers im searching seem to contradict one another
It is a 4 bolt main 4 inch pistons
Block casting on rear transmission flange: 3970010
that told me 69...
Pulling an engine out of an salvage yard
(Big Block Chevy)
I understand how to do the test.
assuming the engine is warm/hot
But What are numbers i should look out for?
What is considered red flag and what is not?
What is are good numbers?
and if the cylinder(s) has low numbers does that...
I recently got a 350 from a buddy of mine but I don't know what year the block is. The code on the block is K1216TPA. I've looked on all the websites with codes and none of them have TPA. And I've checked and re-checked and it is a "P", So I would really appreciate it if someone could help me...
