Took yesterday off work to pick up a 270. This one is out of a '48 (1.5 Ton?) Fire Truck from a small town in SE Tennessee, with, I think, about 100k miles on it. No obvious signs that it's ever been apart, at least to my untrained eye. Hopefully it was regularly maintained. It turns over easy. Looking forward to getting it started and checking compression. Not that I think 1/32" on the bore or 1/16" on the stroke is a huge advantage over the 261, it's just that I'm hoping to get away without rebuilding this one. Will also be on the lookout for a vintage intake, and weighing carburetion options. Moving the radiator to the front of the support looks easy enough, so I'm not concerned about clearance there. What's the best way to accommodate the added length in the front motor mount? The frame is tapered in the area of the cross member, so I can't just slide it forward. Just make a simple rectangular steel plate with two sets of holes in it? (One to the motor, one to the frame, and cantilever it out?) Other things to watch out for when swapping the Jimmy engine into a Chevy frame?
