TwoLousGarage Posted January 10 Share Posted January 10 Hi all, I got my replacement ‘38 engine painted in the correct color green and am getting ready to install it in my ‘38 coupe. I noticed the head was only provisioned for the later 2 bolt valve cover and then researched the part number to reveal it’s a ‘51 263 head. The block decodes to a ‘38 model. My question: Will I have any other issues running this engine as is besides the valve cover bolt differences? This engine came with my car as a replacement for the original. It looks like it was fully rebuilt and run at one point, but does have 1 bent pushrod which is making me question its viability. Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
