I think the 250 with its shorter stroke would be a smoother running engine and probably a bit lighter.
I'm very intrigued with Robert the Davis' latest effort and I think the 292 might be a bit more motor than I personally would need.

As Robert is fond of pointing out you have to work within the limits of whats downstream in the running gear for ultimate longevity.
Torque has a wonderful way of breaking stuff.



I've had Chevy trucks with the smaller engine and its a sweet running motor.

And the best part of these motors for you guys who want more power - they share a lot of common parts with the old Chevrolet V-8 - pistons, valves,rockers, rods and some other parts if I remember correctly - and anything else you need for better performance is available from Clifford Performance.


Their motto is 6=8 - we built up one hell of a Ford 300-6 back in the 1970's using their stuff - that's how we found out about the whole breaking stuff possibilities of a big torquey six cylinder. Like I said this is putting some very bad thoughts in my head....

Just wow! Very nice engine swap - you guys are being a bad influence.
I really like the valve cover and side covers.


What is the length of the Chevy six from the back of the block to the front of the crank pulley?
