Re: 230ci engine teardown

Cool. Just out of dumb curiousity, what was the hp/torque specs on that thing stock?

Time for a 265 slant six maybe?[img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: 230ci engine teardown

Cool readbeard! We are hoping to get away with NOT tearing down the motor (right away anyways) on my folks '53 USAF M-37. We are working on getting it running first, then it's cosmetics, canvas, and brakes/tires. We are hoping to get it running by spring and road worthy by the middle of summer. We will probably tear it down for paint (Strata Blue with signal yellow markings) next fall. Keep us posted on your progress!
