Chevrolet Inline-6 Engine - Tom Langdon

It's a decades-old story: Someone gets hold of an old General Motors car or truck from the '50s, '60s or '70s, and immediately replaces the original inline-6 for a small block V-8 (I've done this myself). And why not? For the money, nothing produces more power for less money than a small block.

Hello i just purchased a 49 fleet line car with a 216 motor. It looks like it has been wired to a 12v system. my question is my starter some times engages and most or the time doesn’t. can i change out the plunger style solenoid to a different one or what starter can i use. thanks
