I ran a hardhat freightliner triaxle with one of those l10 engines it was about 325 or so hp. I was less than impressed. I drove a 3406 325hp and it ran rings around the l10. Years ago I had a 59 autocar with that 262 and a 4by4 and it did ok. It would be nice to keep that 262 in that truck. Nice birthday present.

i hope to be able to salvage the engine  but after draining about 30 gallons of water out of it today its not looking to good. back rocker cover was off and the hood funneled rain water in. came out clear & no oil :angry:

what's the old saying "their is no replacement for displacement"  horsepower is way over rated "torque" is what gets it done !

 

 I think a buddy of mine has another 262 in an A-car but its on the wrong side of the country for you.

That's just EPA approved pollution free water based lubricant. You run it for a few miles and the engine ceases to emit pollution when it seizes up.

if you happen to stumble on to any useable 220 pieces let me know`  other side of the country is not that far away

I kept pouring ATF in the spark plug holes of my farmall f-12.  Eventually I was able to knock all 4 pistons out.   Idk if it would have made it run but like was said it helped it come apart easier.
