Chevy II engine swap.
Permalink  
 


Picked up a 292 L6 from Mike P. awhile back for a friends wife's 65'Nova 4dr, and am finally getting around to swapping out the old one.

Did a complete reseal and ground the valves while I was at it, before the install.

Should be quite the difference from the factory single barrel 250 cid gutless wonder.

Set right in and only had to alter right side motor mount after installing a Nova oil pump and pan. ( front sump )

 

Working on headers now.

Took the old bent up truck header, and am in the process of chopping it up into a pair of shorty's.

Funny thing to the pink.

Misty was teasing us while we were working on the Nova one day, about how we were building it like a guy's car not a girls.

She made a teasing comment about some pink accents, thinking I would balk and be against it.

So I gave her a pink engine teasingly in return, and she loved it, so it's been pink engines ever since
