    oil canister

    i was looking for parts for my 230 i found this oil canister at a auto flea market so i picked it up it's an a/c -6 housing i thank it's for chevy 235 engine i had it for awhile so now i'm ready to put it on i noticed that the top of the housing port is marked outlet and the bottom is marked inlet so it look like the oil is pushed up the center tube .and out the top. it looks opposite of the illustration in the book has anyone run in to this before ? do you plumb as marked in book or opposite direction.thank you
  5. thanks for the info on lines and fittings ,that by pass filter look's neat and cool.. i have and old canister type i'm going to use ,
  6. what size oil lines are used on by pass oil filter, and what are the the fittings used for the canister and block, i have a few fittings, but the holes in fitting look like it would restricted oil flow ? thank you
  7. so i put the harmonic balance from my 218 on to the 230 every thing was fine until it was time to install the bolt, the bolt is to big, thread 1 1/8" across and 1 inch deep,16 pitch. i think i need a 3/4" across x 1 1/4 " long 16 pitch ,can anyone confirm ,or has someone run in to this problem, thank you
  8. thanks for the info ,
  9. picked up timing cover gasket set for the 230 , fel - pro ,when i took it apart it looked like a pretty straight forward job ,changed the timing cover crank seal ,cover gasket .when i took it apart there was no felt washer seal. where dose the felt washer seal go?and the round gasket that comes with the kit.look's like it might be an other cover crank seal of sorts , i'm not sure i have no book to look it up . thank you.

    230 flywheel

    okay ,i was under the impression that it was the crank flange difference between the 218 -230 , i though that if you used the 230 flywheel it corrected the spacing problem.and the bell from 218 was use able with out starter ,interference
