Chevy II 153 Asheville, NC $500

• CATEGORIES: Engine

No pics, but this sounds like a good price if you want an upgrade over your existing engine. I’d put this in Biscuit if it weren’t so far away.

https://asheville.craigslist.org/pts/d/asheville-chevy-ii-cyl-engine/6959241104.html

“Chevy II 153 4 cylinder from 1962/63(?). The motor has been built as a high performance engine…has a 4 bbl intake, dual point distributor, header and (I think) the big valve head. Runs great and had it in an old Jeepster but replaced it with a V6. Seem to be hard to find as a lot were scooped up and built for dirt track racing. Ran fine in the Jeepster with good oil pressure and no over heating (has new water pump).”

Beach camping at Gander.

The crew spent the day doing some more exploring of Newfoundland. They began the morning on the beach at Gander Lake. It ended at Gros Morne National Park.

Another short driving day, with a wet drive from Gander to Gros Mourne National Park.

Gander Lake proved to be a beautiful place to begin the day.

While the beach is a romantic spot to camp, it’s not all that flat. So, Joe and Bill had to get creative with their equipment in order to have their beds passably level.

“134 cu in L head (flathead) out of a 1948 CJ2A. The motor is disassembled and has been checked out by a machine shop. The bore is currently .060 over, crank mains are .030 and the rod journals are .010. The block and head have been dipped and painted. I took two motors to the machine shop and had them pick the best parts to rebuild one motor. The leftovers are all usable. Motor still has to be rebuilt. Motor block with head, crank, cam and piston rods, oil pan, flywheel, manifolds, water pump, fan, and what you see in the picture.May trade, need a Weber carburetor.”
