    not junk--but not good either...

    They used the 262 V8 in Chevy Monza's..a great motor for them,a lightweight car..not good at all for a full sized truck..its close cousin the 267 V8 was used in El-Camino's,Malibu's,and some early 80's Impala's..they were great on gas,I had an 80 El Camino "Royal Night" SS that had one,and got 22 mpg on the highway--it had a 2.56 posi rear,and I could get it up to 65 mph in low gear before it started to wind out--it was a slug on takeoff,and couldn't spin the tires unless they were on sand or ice!..I would not use one in a 4x4 or fullsized truck..its a gutless wonder,couldn't pull the foreskin off a misquito!.
    :p:

    I put a "305" and a "TH350" in a friends truck about 5 years ago..I suspected it was not a 305,because it had a tiny harmonic balancer,and a weird 2 bbl carb..so I "decoded" the numbers on the block--sure enough,it was a 267! :doah: --the 82 Impala that the motor came from evidently had this 267 swapped in--the tag on the radiator support said it was a 305--either that or GM lied!..and the tranny turned out to be a TH250! :doah: -

    The 82 C10 I put it in also had 2.56 gears,and it was sluggish too--but better than the 250 six and wimpy Monza style 5 speed it came with originally..(it was a telephone company truck originally!)..it ate the lobes off the cam in less than 3 months after the motor swap.. :( ..what a wasted effort!--at least the 350 was easy to put in after the 267 went in--they are identical externally.. :crazy:

    262 = 4.3L

    The V6 4.3 probably puts out more power too.

    According to Google, the 75-76 262ci SBC has 3.671 bore and a 3.1 stroke. It probably has more balls that a 267. :p: You would have to check the starter bolt pattern to see what size flywheel you can run.

    If you are looking at downsizing for economy, IMO, a 283 is probably your best 'small ci' smallblock.
