Differences in I6 engines...


I just joined the forum...
My girlfriend and I just bought a 1960 Strato Chief with the 261 I6, to teach her to work on and that we can cruise and show in the summer.

It needs a fuel pump and the local part stores of course don't have a listing for the exact yr/engine.

Is there any difference between the fuel pump for a 64' 216ci I6 and the 261ci I6?

That is the closest listing Napa has to the year and engine. The fuel pump does look very similar..


Thanks in advance!

Welcome and try asking for a fuel pump for a Chev 230 or 250

The 230 and 250 are a different family,  the 235 and 261 are the same and I think the 216.  There are plenty of guys on this site that have the same engine that would know for sure.

TRY ANOTHER SUPPLIER AND ASK FOR CHEVY 235 CU.
PONTIAC ALWAYS GETS INTO US MODELS.
I WORK AT A CARQUEST PARTS STORE AND WE WILL HAVE A LISTING FOR IT.

Always ask for the Chev equivelant when trying for parts, The Napa and other stores computors and book will go to a US part.

Thanks for the help!

Also, what models are the windshields interchangeable from?

sixtywagon- are you on the Impala SS b-body wagon forum?

Here's some CP glass numbers to help you find what will interchange.

Your Strato would be either a model -11 (2 door sedan) or -19 (4 door sedan)

Looks like all 1960 2 and 4 door sedan models and all 4 door wagon models (-35 -45) will work.

I'd bet that 1960 Chevrolets of the same model types would interchange.
