Everything from two cylinder diesels up to a 572 Big Block Chevy. probably 7-8 four bolt main 350's, I lost count. Turns out this 151 engine is junk. The guy screwed me big time. I specifically asked him to turn it over and he siad he rotated th crank three full revolutions. Well. I just pulled the head after I could only get a half turn each way. One cylinder is solid rust at the top. This thing never turned one revolution let alone three. Postimage is down right now but I will post pictures once it is back up along with this guys info. Watch out for him. He apparently does work with a museum that sells on consignment.
He even sent me his web page when I old him I was uneasy with postal money orders. Learned THAT lesson!!!!! I don't give a finless brown trout if you have a site, an address or a phone number, credit card or Paypal or it don't happen!

That address will take you to one of his sales.
I also have his name and address but I am not going to put that on an open forum and open myself up to the lawyers. If you want it I will be glad to pm it to you. He is in Illinois.

Pulled the head and as I suspected the number three cylinder was rusted far too bad for that engine to ever have turned over!
Pressure washed all the grunge off of it and it is a nice color, I didn't get any pics of inside the bell housing but you might see a little of the dark green around the back of the engine behind the flywheel. Never saw that on the other engines. Also check out that oil filter, I don't think I have ever seen one of those.

No clip holding the oil return line to the rocker.

Don't recognize that brand, I have heard of Crown but never saw one.

I got all the crap out of the cylinder and off the pistons and got it to turn. I have seen better looking cylinders but I am going to clean off that gasket and spray it with ultra copper and bolt it together and scrounge up a starter and see what happens. I am not really thinking it will run and if it does , probably smoke pretty bad. I also do not expect the head gasket to hold for all that long but I am not throwing any new parts on this thing right now. I am just waiting on parts to finish putting my car together and then get some promised carbs done. Then I will get back to this.

Are you talking about the numbers by the flywheel under the oil pressure sender?

the number above the part number shows typically a casting date. However in your case I cannot decipher the meaning. Engine color reminds me of Pontiac engine colors. Somebody build also the generator mounting bracket

This is the third engine I got in this color, one was in my 151 when I got it and the other came from a 61. This one had a Holley on it so I know it is an early one. I will try to get a picture of the inside of the bell housing today, it is a dark green. It is also a very early bell housing with the starter release hole.

so what does the casting date say? I looked at my 151 earlier today and it shows a full date with day/month/year

You tell me. I'll have you know I went out in the wet dreary morning cold just to take these pictures. I am sure you feel sorry for me. :roll: :lol: :lol:

Those look like VW Beetle Spark plug plugs/seals on the ends of the wires. There were used to keep air from escaping the holes in the cooling tin for the sparkplugs.

Yep, sure do. Take the ends off the plug and you could probably use the whole VW plug wire end.

I take it you can't use a civilian spark plug with that Distributor ?
I hope you didn't get screwed too bad on that engine.

There was an adapter set made by the military to do just that. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=8413
