  • The Chevy 235 is alive!

    Here is a Youtube lnk to it turning over.
    Not complete yet, but was good enough to have the owner see it running.
    He agreed that the ~ 10 RPM was a nice speed.
    Just need to come up with a switch box for the toggle and capacitor, make the chain guard, finish the welding, wire it.

    Just curious. Did you do the cut away or just the display and turning of the crank?

                Pretty cool Sid. Looks like something a guy could sit and stare at for a while.

                  It is Dan. Kind of cathartic.

                            I think that was the engine in my 1965 Chevy Malibu that I bought in 1970 for $675. Three on the tree, positraction rear, and ran nicely. Drove it with four other people on a cross-country trip from Baltimore through St Louis, Denver, and SLC, to Berkeley, up the coast to Seattle, then back through Spokane and St Cloud, MN. Averaged about 15 MPG. Drove through KS at up to 80 MPH (posted speed limit).
