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.

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

I mean, there's no reason that a six cylinder can't be built-up, but it's usually not a whole lot more expensive to build up a V8 that already starts with large displacement, so there's less reason to build the six.

In a coupe with a long, skinny engine compartment though, I like it when the engine fits within the sheet metal.  This looks very nice.

Pretty much identified as an XK Jaguar engine, don't know who it belongs to.

You are looking only at the "left" side of the 6 cyl engine block.
All I see is the 3 exhaust ports.
There no ports for the other 3 cylinders shown and no double ports.
So,,,,does this mean that there are exhaust ports on the "other" side of the engine??
If so,,then this is definitely a European style of engine with valves in the block and not overhead?

Must be a "twin overhead cam" 6 cylinder engine,,,,which leads me to say it is an older English Jaguar motor.

Figured someone would comment on that. It did move a little bit, not sure why the camera captured it so cartoonish. Sh1tty cheap camera.
