For Sale: 1958-62 Early 283 Chevy Engine & TH350 trans. Ready To Run!

Complete early 283 Hi-Po Chevrolet V8 motor and TH350 trans.
This is a really good running motor and trans that is super smooth and tight and very fast.
The motor is a rare 1958-1962, High performance 315HP model.
It was purchased by the Kennedy brothers in Pomona, California about 4 years ago and was pulled from a local Deuce 5 window where it had been sitting since the 60's.
After being stripped and inspected and finding it was good condition low mileage engine the heads were rebuilt for good measure, full set of gaskets were installed as well as a new Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock carb, chrome alternator, starter, water pump, plugs, wires, distributor cap, points etc, before being painted orange. I have maybe done 600 miles since all this work done and it has never skipped a beat and does not leak or burn oil. it has great oil pressure, 40-45 when cold and 25-30 when hot. The trans was also a low mileage item and fitted with a new high stall converter, kick down linkage and an old chrome B&M shifter and it works great and shifts good.
The 4 barrel air cleaner is a rare old aluminum Nicson marine style unit. The headers are old modified tube style and were on this very coupe since 1964. The aluminum valve covers are vintage 60's finned Corvette. I even have the original cut down fan for the front pulley!
I have decided to put an early Cad motor and manual trans in my coupe so that is the reason this good running set up is up for grabs.
I will be pulling it all out as one thing, so this really is a bolt in a car and go deal!!
It's all still in my car so if you are interested you can check it out, hear it and ride in the car!
It is located in Hollywood, California is local pick up only.
$1500.00 firm.
The original chopped down Deuce grille shell & insert, custom made radiator and electric fan will also be available soon if anyone is interested.

Gary Scott

Ironic photo, since it appears he riding a Triumph ! ?
Scott was an AMA Grand National Champion in 1974.  He raced Triumphs, then raced for Harley-Davidson factory team, then as a privateer.  Gary Scott was an excellent professional motorcycle racer, but sometimes he could be a real asshole.  I guess he slugged Bill Werner in the mouth once over something?  Maybe he deserved it?  Scott claimed a few motors, said a lot of words . . . but hey, gotta like the dude 'cause he goes like hell ! 

TECH: Piston Skirt Slot ( WL Pistons )

There's "Nice to Know" and there's "Need to Know"
I'm not sure which may apply to you ?
This angled slot is factory on all oversize WL (45") pistons. 
Standard bore (2.745 std. size) pistons do not have this slot. 
The slot is only on oversize pistons
This piston (pictured) is +.040 oversize.
The slot is only on one side of the piston - Not both sides. 
Slot position is towards the front of engine(opposite thrust face)
The thrust face of a piston is on backside of each cylinder.
Correct installation = slot towards front-side of cylinder.

Harold broke Cannonball Baker's 24hr record . . . then ended up being killed while testing when a horse stepped out in front of him.  Many top racers die in testing accidents. 
Today is his birthday.
