Hello all, I am in the process of restoring my Chevrolet fire truck and just found out that my engine block and heads are cracked. I am now looking for a replacement engine.
I would like to stay with the same year so that the bell housing, motor mounts and all will work without having to do any modifications. I have already had the starter, generator and carb rebuilt so I want to be able to use those also. I have enjoyed reading some of the threads on this forum, there is a lot of knowledge here.
Any leads will be appreciated. Asheville, NC. Welcome to Chevy Chatter. I'm sure someone will hop in and try to help on a replacement engine, but meanwhile just wanted to say hello and let you know that there are several of us with early Chevy fire trucks.
I have a '29, as does "Chipper" on here not the same guy -- much older and uglier. There is a forum further down the page devoted to Chevy fire trucks, too.
Plus lots of other interesting early Chevy stuff. Sorry, but I don't have a '33 engine. I do have a '32 engine if you run out of leads Again, welcome.

Does the original engine in the original car have matching s or can one replace the engine with another and not worry about the s? I want my car as original as possible. Also, what do you think about "Shell" bearings replacing babbiting? I was told that the shell bearings were better but suggested running an oil filter.
What do you think? Re: engine codes and babbiting. Remember that you only have a three bearing crankshaft with iron pistons if it is stock and you want to keep the revs down.
They made constant improvements on the from to There is a twenty horsepower difference from 33 through The early had the spark plugs at right angles to the side of the engine, while later engines had the plugs angled upward. There is no such thing as a numbers matching Chevrolet of that era, but the casting date on the engine plus the build date on the cowl tag gives a clue as to whether or not the engine could have been in the car originally. VCCA deducts, I think, fifty points for the wrong year engine of correct displacement, one hundred points for the wrong displacement.
Each year after that many improvements were made. One was full length water jackets. This means that the block was extensivly revised so the water cooling was brought down to almost the full length of the cylinder wall. This cooled the engine better and lowered the oil temperature. Also the oil flow to the main bearings was built into the block.Discussion in ' Engine Topic ' started by 64BoxcarMar 27, Mar 27, 1.

We build a lot of circle traxck engines and we have used a lot of the blocks, But the first thing we do is sonic test the cylinders for cylinder wall thickness as that should be the major area to look at. And if you can find one with on the center caps and it sonic tests good you should be all set. Mar 28, 5.'36 Chevy Engine Reassembly
Yeah the I have has the K on the caps the has the same number on the caps but no K I belive the number was or somthing to that efect its not siting in front of me so. I may be a letter off.

Only one problem, it doesn't run. No problem, you say, the classic Stovebolt Six was virtually unchanged from '29 through '62, right?
How hard could it be??? How hard, indeed. Here's Barry with a reality check you can cash at any bank in They were built from and were quite different from the which came out in ' The later 's ''62 were basically a refinedand will easily replace a You may also have to change the front crossmember or build motor mounts.
A friend of mine here in Minnesota is just finishing a restoration of a '31 2-dr. He says if he could do it over, he would not put the money into rebuilding the He would swap in a instead. He swapped his for a later recently and we e-mailed back and forth alot of ideas before he got it in.
He seems to be real happy with it. Done right, swapping out a or for a later would give you a better driving engine, but you would have to do some modifying. It all depends upon the level of originality you want to retain. Your choice. Before modifying anything, though, talk to everyone you can who might have some experience with this.
