I have just purchased my first project truck. I am what one would call a monkey wrench I guess, not too much experience. I was wondering if anyone had info on where to find used motors that need rebuilt. I am thinking about a 454 but probably am going to settle for 350. Do I have to find a motor for a 69 chevy or would any do? I want to try and keep it as original as possible. Thank you for helping a rookie:-D

If the truck had a small block V8 (350 etc), any small block (58 on) will bolt in with no problem. The big blocks (396, 454) used differant engine frame brackets that get pricey. The small block frame bracket form 67-72 are the same. These trucks also used the short water pump as oposed to the later long warer pump. Either will fit with the right accesory brackets and fan spacer. All chevy V8's have the came bolt pattern on the back. Any thing can be made to fit if you have the talent and know how.

"I want to try and keep it as original as possible."

With the price of fuel as it is and since it only seems to be going higher I would keep as small an engine in the vehicle as makes sense for your intended use. If you will be pulling a loaded trailer then by all means go for a bigger engine.

For daily transportation to work, small engine, etc.

I would suggest that you check out some books from your local library on engine swaps for Chevrolet. If they don't have any in stock they should be able to Inter-Library Loan some in for you.

No, a replacement engine will not have to be from a 1969. Chevy small blocks were nearly the same for many a year.

sbc were 55-95 years, any will go into the truck and work

for a big block you would need motor mount parts and exhaust manifolds and pipes and some other items, accessories and parts, and so forth


some 55 and 56 didnt have side motor mounts but that wouldnt matter in a big truck, as they used front mounts only too,
