1. Re: [oletrucks] 216 look-a-like valve cover for 235 (score: 1)
Author: Andrew Roberts <>
Date: Tue, 27 Mar 2001 20:52:00 -0800 (PST)
I thought the look alike valve covers were the real thing. Jim Carter's sells a kit with the studs, seals, and nuts to replace two of the rocker pivot bolts with studs so that a 216 valve cover can b

The shaft is pressed through a stamped steel bracket that is bolted to the frame in four locations, two on top of the frame rail and two low on the side. The outside end of the shaft protrudes throug

Author: Andrew Roberts <>
Date: Sat, 29 Jul 2000 17:10:29 -0700 (PDT)
Is a 3/4 ton OK to buy? That depends on what you want to do with it. Most of the 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton parts are interchangable. The only place where the sheet metal is different is the longer bed side

I got a pair of fiberglass boards for my 3/4 ton from Creative Glass Works in Oneida, TN. I didn't ask about smooth ones, but they advertise both smooth and standard ones for 1/2 tons, so I suspect t

The parking brake return spring is located under the cab, under the drivers seat. The spring should be pulling the linkage back. The tension in the linkage helps lock the pedal down, so this is most

Whether your rear brake lines are original or not, they are set up correctly. Since the rubber hoses are much more likely to fail than the rigid lines, minimizing the number of flexible hoses increas

It sound's like you have too much current running through your horn button. The horn button should not be directly connected to the horn. Instead it should ground the horn relay when depressed. This

Author: Andrew Roberts <>
Date: Sun, 23 Apr 2000 19:07:23 -0700 (PDT)
I'll bite. The GMC hoods don't come down as far in front as the Chevy hoods, so a GMC hood strip should be too short for a Chevy. Granted, I haven't actually measured, but the difference sticks out p

I'd like to lose the loose linkage that's currently affixed to the side of my 235 and replace it with a more modern throttle cable setup. I see several relatively easy ways to get the carb end of a c

Switching to solenoid starting also leaves an unused hole in the toeboard. I'm considering retaining the pedal and part of the linkage to fill this hole and maintain the original appearance. A non-fu

If the latch mechanisim is working properly, closing the door will unlock it, unless it was locked with the key. There is a lever just outboard of the door latch on the door that is pushed up by the

You might want to see if your wiring harness has a specific year on it. My '49 has a large fuse box (about 4" X 6") with headlight fuses, like yours. In '50, Chevy decided that using both the therma

Maybe the TFs are different, but my AD's bed wood is 3/4" thick. Carpenter's glue may be sufficient when covering the wood with sheet metal or plate, but a good epoxy such as Gougeon (West System) or

I'm trying to get my 235 running before I put the front end sheet metal back on. One of the last things I need is the fan. I've heard enough stories (here and elwhere) of these old fans cracking and

No. The post '54 style pumps have a different mounting bolt pattern. I'm betting that your block is really a '55, cast in Sept. '54. Andrew Roberts '49 3600 with a '54 235 oletrucks is devoted to Che

I used 10 guage in my truck, but this is probably a little heavier than I need. I've seen as big a wire as 8 guage used, but that seems like real overkill, even with a 110A alternator. 12 guage shoul
