You're right, a '64 truck engine isn't going to do much performance wise and simply bolting some heads on will not make it into a fast vehicle, either. However, that 292 can absolutely be made to...

Don't have a 240, so I can't say, but 15 is pretty good.

To improve mpg, better ignition, induction, exhaust, more compression, and overdrive. These are not necessarily cost effective. If you...

If it wasn't boiling over, then it wasn't too hot. If you didn't measure the temperature then you don't really know anything, other than the fact that the temperature dropped from one thing to...

3, 5, 8, ... and 2 use the same side of the carburetor. 1, 4, 6, and 7 use the other.
Since you have 3 of 4, my thought is a carb problem.

Ignition is pretty easy to rule out. Attach a timing...

Something is wrong. The sender location on a Y Block results in a temperature reading that is actually about 10 - 15 degrees lower than the temperature at the thermostat. So that 225 is actually...

There is a mounting point on the bellhousing but it is for the hydraulic clutch in '57-'60, and that mounting point carried over through '64. The bracket for the mechanical linkage mounts to the...

If you look at a bare block, you will see that it is impossible to remove the pistons from the bottom.
I'd just soak it for a while to get it as free as possible and try to fire it up.

Use a small drill bit to clean the vent. Could be the reason you had the leak.

Is this the replacement z bar? It could be a glob of grease, but it looks like it is cracked in such a way that would cause excess travel to be required. Have you removed it and cleaned it for...
