    New member here in Boise, ID. In the past ~6 months I've been rebuilding and restoring my Dad's 56 210 with the original 235/Powerglide. He was recently diagnosed with a terminal illness and was not able to rebuild it in retirement. He had a bulk of the "new" parts sitting on shelves throughout...

    I've had a leak on my 235 valve lifter cover. I ended up putting a rubber "Real Gasket" on this weekend, and there was still a small leak. I had tried to flatten out the dimples at the sometime over tightened bolts. Our friend Dragsix provided another cover which is in much better shape than my...

    I've had an oil leak at the valve lifter cover on my 235. Here are some photos. The cover is not warped, and the flange on the engine is flat. Could it be that the indentations at the bolt attachments are the problem? Are those indentations suppose to be there? Perhaps overtightening the bolts...

    Choke won't release all the way when warm? Choke coil adjustment seems over adjusted (lean) and when warm: the choke stays open a bit. You can open it fully with your finger but it won't adjust automatically..... Could the choke coil be cracked/malfunctioning? I could not find this part listed...

    I'm collecting parts for my '56 210 Build. My car presently has only a 6 cylinder engine block with a 3-speed. I really like the inline 6's, so I probably won't change to a V8. Anyway, I have a couple choices being offered to me. A running 261 engine from a '54 2-ton truck for big bucks, or...

    Hi guys I recently purchased a 1957 Chevy 3100 with the original 235 6cyl engine. The other day she just quit on me and I have not been able to get her started since. I replaced the fuel pump as th e lines were dry before and after the pump so I thought no big deal. She cranked right over after...

    OK - cheating a little here - I've got a 59 BelAir, but from what I see on this site, I'm in the right place to get my problem solved! 2 years ago she started flooding-out when hot. Took the carb (Rochester BC) to to the best carb rebuilder in Grand Rapids, who said it was full of rust, but...

    i know this is an old topic-I can't believe I'm the first to do this. I put a new fuel pump on my 57's 235. I got it on and it worked great-but the connectors were dripping. I tightened the in and the out and the in has been just fine. I tried tightening the connector and got it snug but it...
  15. Chit Chat Area, Anything on your mind goes here.
    hey everybody I have recently bought a 292 from a buddy who told me it was formerly in a 292 64 pickup. I own a 1956 210 with a 235 and stock 3speed tranny. I bought the 292 for $150 :) so.... I got to looking at the motor mounts from the 235 today, and comparing to the 292..... the 292 has...

    With a stock 235, what are people using for a replacement fuel pump (make and model number)? I'm having trouble locating the correct one. Also if you can suggest a location to buy one that would be great.

    Does anybody know if there are any hi-flow mechanical fuel pumps for a 235? I have found replacement fuel pumps but I would like to see if there is a high flow pump that will fit this engine. Thanks for your help. Steve

    I have a 235 that I rebuilt a few years ago with maybe only 100 miles on it since I replaced all the gaskets. I now have the car in a drivable condition again, but there is a pretty good oil leak on only the front of the motor. I snugged down all the bolts on the timing cover and oil pan (except...
