  • Inline 6 170 Champion engine

    I'm looking for a new block because mine is to fare gone. Thats all I need but if you have an engine that could work to. 1950 Champion inline 6 170 or also known as a 169.5 I believe.

      I saw that but they don't have one for the 1950, I forgot to put the year.

        Rob....I recently pulled one from a PU which I'm parting out. I believe it to be in very good shape. I'm down in Santa Barbara.

          I have a completely rebuilt engine that's ready to go. Everything that could be new, is. It came out of a '51, so you'd have to use your '50 oil pan and a few other parts.

          I also have a late 50's NOS short block, but it has pitting in the cylinders. Could be bored and rebuilt.

          But, I'm also in Atlanta.

              My son has a running champ 6 in his 55 HT which he is getting ready to pull in favor of a V8. I'm in Sacramento

                My older brother pulled a perfectly good running flat-six and 3 speed tranny out of his 1949 Stude pickup, and replaced it with a 289 & T85. I think the flat six & tranny went into a holler somewhere

                  Remember that a 54 and older engine will fit, but a 55 and newer engine will need either a special oil pan or to have your oil pan modified.

                      If the cylinder walls are messed up, they can always be sleeved. You don't have to do every one if only 1 or 2 are damaged. If keeping the original number engine is important, that's the way to go.

                          I've got a '52 vintage edition here in Visalia. It's been lying here about a dozen years but was a runner when it was given to me. Free for the taking!
