Need a Engine.... Empty Need a Engine....

Post by DanTheVanMan on Mon Mar 09, 2020 1:09 pm

Well folks, literally just a few miles after the 65 Sportvan rolled over 1/2 a million miles I decided to reward her with a "new" carb (an actual Real NEW Carb , not a reman)...  Guessing is was just to much for the o'l gal because just a few miles down the road on the test run she choked, coughed and puked all over herself and she died a slow and horrible death as she limped home!
Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

Sooooo, Anyone even remotely close to the Florida/Georgia line just happen to have a good Chevy 250? scratch

Any help would be appreciated!

Sorry to hear it..

Every time I put in the extra time and money to make my car, truck, or van better..  Something expensive or time consuming happens to that one right after..

One step forward, two steps back.

Wish I were closer, I love to help you with it.

So, whats your plan now?

Scott, Just  going to pull the engine. Search Craigslist & Facebook Marketplace and be patient I guess. This has always been my preferred daily driver. Having the the 250 & Powerglide, it is the best pair for just running around with so want to stay with it. One will show up sooner or later. I have 3 jeeps and a motorcycle until then.... Hopefully it's not too long. Sad Sad
