<< Does any one have a diagram of the rocker arm assembly or the oil passage's
on a 235 thought some one might have an old Motors Manual or something that
might show the flow of oil.
Also does any one know the Miles per Gallon with a stock 235 with one barrel
carb. Duel Exhaust, three on the tree,stock rear end,15' tires >>
I'll dig out a MoToRs and see what it show, but in reality, the shop manual
problem shows the same, anyway, I'll see I I can find out anything...I can
tell you than many folks (dealers too) added a 1/8th line off the oil
pressure to the cannister, and routed it around the the pass. side if the
head to feed the top end.
As far as MPG's go, what I can tell you is this...
When I ran the 4.11's and short (about 27inch tires) at 3000rpms on the
highway I got 14.5 mpgs, with 30.5 tall tires and a 3.54 rear, at 3000 rpms
I still get 14.5mpg.
If I slow it down to about 2600-2700, I get about 16mpg.
Gonna have to fix that speedometer someday:) I keep forgetting the MPH's
I've calculated to the RPM's..so now I just go by the tach.
