FS: SBC 283 and parts
Anybody interested in some old sbc parts? Will sell as an entire engine package, or willing to discuss specific pieces.....
This is an early sbc v8 - first year of the 283 i think...it was swapped into a project I bought. Maybe someone is interested in it - or maybe its just junk.
Here are the numbers:
Engine Code: FI28FC - as I interpret that, Jan 28 and FC is 220hp 283 with 4bbl carb and powerglide.
As many of you know, the very early sbc v8 have some unique features, and this one still has most of those pieces, although it does NOT have the original intake or carb - it has a later spread bore with qjet from 1969 sbc350.
no side engine mounts - just front cradle mount:
has a draft tube - no pcv:
has the offset valve cover bolt mount holes:
I do have the original fan, generator and VR (as well as the exhaust mount bracket):
Has the 168 tooth (14") flywheel, but will not accept an 11" clutch as they were only drilled for a 10" clutch:
And this engine was originally mated to a powerglide, so still have the powerglide bellhousing adapter:
I also have an original distributor for 1955-56 sbc v8 (265), that is pretty rare...model number 1110847
And now for the obligatory - this was running when I pulled it, but it is tired, and leaky and ready for a rebuild. I have videos of it running before I pulled - please request videos if you like. I can probably get a youtube link for them. Obviously, I think it would be great to sell the whole package, but always open to discussing price and or specific parts and pieces. thanks!
