Well currently I have an inline (250hp) 4.1L L6 in my series station wagon and was curious if anyone has put an Chevy 292 in a series before. if so, can you use the same gear box adapter?

I had a Chev 250 c.i inline six and had a Scotty's adapter, not sure if the 292 is the same.
Bill, my motor went into an old 1960's Chev car, I can't remember the model...

  • Vehicle: RRC, Defender 110, LR4. Plus a bunch of other stuff that doesn’t run.
They have the same bell housing bolt pattern as the 230 & 250 sixes (and V8’s).
The 292 was a truck only engine and had a taller deck and I think the fuel pump is on the opposite side compared with the smaller units.

Great engines.
