Re: 223 performance build...questions!

Well update on the rebuild. Need to sleeve all 6 pistons. What we thought was a motor with 50K original miles actually turned out to be a motor that had been rebuild and bored out .06 over. SOOOOO ... we cross checked the numbers and it is the original motor to the truck, so I decided to save the mo...

Re: 223 Rebuild Kit recommendations

I went for about a 200 mile drive before coming to work. Before I left i checked all the fluids. Got home ... parked it. Next morning checked under the truck, no leaks at all. Pulled the stick and it was about 2 qts shy. Did not notice any smoke while driving (except at take off from a dead stop). W...

289 to 1 1962 3 speed tranny

Ok I figure I'd ask since my internet searches are very vague to non existent with the info i'm looking for.

What do I need to mate a 289 to a 1962 3 speed (on the tree). I have a 223 in the truck now. Needs a rebuild and I'm thinking about just dropping a 289 in it.

Thanks

223 Rebuild Kit recommendations

Thanks in advance.

Never fooled with one before. There is a line that runs form my oil fill cap to the air breather. I assume this i...
