    where are the timing marks on the timing chain set?

    Just looked thru the link on the build thread, now I see what I'm looking for. Looks like a very small lite mark. I had better get some better light so I can see. Thanks guys.
  2. I am putting a dropped water pump housing on my 230 which means I have to change the plate with the motor mounts on it. It looks like I need to remove the timing chain and gears to get the plate off. I wanted to roll the motor over and line up the timing marks but I dont see any on my motor. Am I missing something.

    This is the tailgate of the truck that is sticking out of the back side of my shop. My wife wanted a garden bench so I used a bunch of cast off parts to build it. It sits out side my shop.

    Need to lower my fan.

    I'm striking out finding a late 50's 230 car water pump. My local napa doesnt have them, Andy Bernbaum says theres not enough demand for them for him to sell them. Any other options anyone can help me with?

    So I,m new to this mopar flat six thing. Can I go to my local NAPA store and find a waterpump?

    Need to lower my fan.

    That is exactly what I need. The motor I have is a 1959 230 out of a cube van. So what is that waterpump?

    Need to lower my fan.

    In building my single seat car using a 230 I need to lower the fan. Was there a double groove pulley and a fan carrier ever produced for a special application? Or has anyone ever done such a modification.
