  • Parts for a 245 six

    I have a '60 champ with a 245 six and overdrive in it. The engine is tired and the OverDrive needs rebuilding. However, one of the issues with the engine is a cracked head. Currently, it doesn't seem to have too very much effect on the engine as it runs just fine in hot weather. However the engine is really quite tired and could use refreshing. I figured it was time to start gathering the necessary items to rebuild this engine so does anyone have a good head lying around for a 245?

      as of a couple years ago SI still had NOS heads for trucks but not cars. I used on of the truck head on a car, only difference is a light lower CR. Depending upon the where the crack is it might be repairable.

            Thanks anyway Paul, I have good manifolds. It's the top of the engine, in this case, being that it's a flathead, where the sparkplugs screw in.

                Well, I know the topic is not Commander 6 exhaust manifold, but since one was pictured - it should be noted that the later truck engines had a three studs at the exhaust flange connection rather than two as pictured. Just something to remember if you are looking for a Commander 6 exhaust manifold.

                  I have absolutely no idea what to offer you. Just let me know what you would like to have for it and I'll figure out between that and Greyhound if it's do-able for me. If you don't want anyone else knowing your location, do please P.M. me.

                    I'll weigh it and see what it will cost to ship...do you have a preferred shipper?

                      Use Greyhound. I just shipped a 55 pound radiator to Sun Valley Nv. for 80.00. R&L truck lines wanted $235.00.

                          FedEx would be nice as they will deliver to my work. Greyhound would be okay if they're less expensive. Whichever is easier and costs less.

                            Greyhound will cost you a bit more. The advantage of bus express is when you have a relatively light, but over-sized item in which FedEx & UPS would give you a massive oversize charge.
