I've looked around and heard that while not as powerful as a Buick straight 8, the Pontiac straight 8 is quite reliable. But I've heard a couple of people tell 'horror' stories about pistons splitting in two on the 268 of the 1950s. But is this a common problem with the Pontiac 248 straight 8 as well? Are there any problems that the 248 is prone to having? Thanks in advance.

in 42 years, i've never heard such stories about the pontiac straight eight engine. so well known and said, is that pontiacs were built to last 100,000 miles. there are no common problems with the pontiac straight eight engines.
