I need help - engine

Won't run? Engine, cooling system, fuel pump, carb, clutch, tranny, brakes, etc. The old messages from the NPCA 'Engine & Mechanical' category are here.

I agree. I should have stayed with my gut and not ventured down that avenue. The idea of a Chevy engine made me uneasy. I think it’s cool but not for me. I’ll rebuild the P engine. I’ll continue my research. For now I’ll sit in the driver seat and dream of driving haha

Yup. You've had a taste of how cool they are to drive now. You've got incentive to get back there.
Beyond any hope for intervention

I'm stunned that you could drive it with all that sludge in the engine. And as for the fuel filter :o

Maybe pick up a second hand engine and get it running first. Its easier to swap engines rather that rebuild - well it is for me anyway.

That way you will prove its drivable and you can the sort out the other issues (brakes, diffs etc etc). You can also have a bit of fun. Then rebuild the engine.
Not sure if I will get there.
Not sure if I will get back.
But I usually do!!!
