FYI the chevy inline 6 you probably refer to is a 194/230/250 and
generally not considered a stovebolt.
i do 40's-50's GM trucks and the general term i have heard stovebolt
refer to is the original 216 inliner of which i am SURE beyond doubt
NEVER EVER found its way into a boat. It's a babbit poured bearing main
with splash oiling for rods and the engine wieghs 75# MORE than SBC and
150# MORE than the 62-76(up to 80mid) 194/230/250 size and class of
later model 6 cyl.
correct me if i am wrong.
i am also familiar with the 194/230/250 and they are in my opinion and
expierience probably the BEST motor out tehre standing up to TONS of
abuse and running ragged on less than 5 cyl... awesome motors with good
fuel consumption, strong reliability, and cheap parts.
