HotRod, name that engine
« on: March 09, 2017, 12:00:39 AM »
Chevy 3 window, with a six.  Remember the hot rodder axiom,  Six in a row just won't GO,  I think this would change some minds.  What kind of Six is it?

Is it a Jimmy 302?

That engine topped with a Wayne 12 port head is on my bucket list for a hot rod. I love me a buzzin half dozen, mostly because I'm a diesel guy.

Not sure what 6, but would love to hear it! I loved the sound of my old 235 Chevy powered GMC Panel. All stock but sounded sweet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNZsuwkT6iY

I PMed John that when looking at the front of the valve covers, and the location of the freeze plugs, it looks like a slightly modded Jaguar XK inline six.

Seen a few 6 bangers that were screamers.. I thought it looked like it was an OHC motor and Jag was next thought.

Yeah looks like Jag rocker covers.
There is a very fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

Does the need justify the want ? Or does the want suffice?
