I just ran across this forum and I think it's great to see all the great info and help on these engines.
I'm trying to put a 1956 Panel Truck back together from a box of parts the previous owner was collecting over the decades. I believe I've got a 272 ci and T-98 4 speed. When I first bought it, I was planning a late model motor and updated suspension and all that jazz, but I think it would be nice to just fix up what I've got with only a few minor upgrades here and there.
I picked the truck up 4-5 years ago and had to put it up in storage to take an assignment in Germany. I'm back now and trying to sort through the parts and get a restoration plan together. Active duty Air Force, 16 years. I'd really like to have it on the streets before I hit the button for retirement.
I'm looking forward to picking your brains for Y-block knowledge and wisdom.
