I just picked up a 1948 KB5 International Grain truck with a six cylinder Flat head engine. This truck been sitting outside for a long time with the hood open am not very optimistic about it running again. Will have a better outlook if it is not stuck and I can get the rusted off spark plugs out.

Would a 1954 235ci six cylinder Chevy engine be a good choice for a transplant. I have an extra engine that came out of a running pickup. In spite of all the gearing I want more power for what I want to do with this truck.Cleddy

The 48 KB2 I had a 216 GRD in it. Have seen Ford 223 6cyl in one. What was done to make fit have no idea.

I think Chevy put the 235 in similar sized trucks to the KB5. I would expect it to work as well as the original IHC Green Diamond engine. I have a Chevy 235 in my KB1. Doing the swap is not a bolt in by any means.
