Hello,
I really hope there is somebody out there who is able to help:
Currently I am restoring a 1928 Mastersix 120 wheelbase. Unfortunately
I bought the car via internet and found out upon arrival her in Germany,
that cyl-head and cyl.-block had severe frost damage and long, big cracks.

Now I did find another motor here in Germany (no. 2554212) which seems to be a 1930 Standard-six engine with 257.5 cui and 80.5 hp- not too far off my
28 Master engine w. 274 cui and 77 hp.
But will it fit into my frame??? Can somebody give advice?

I will have to travel about 500 miles inorder to get to that one and will poss.
try to avoid a mistake. Since the 1930 standart-motor is missing sev.
parts I will have to fit my distributor, carb, clutch and transmission and
the front enginegears and cover to it - will those fit?

If this all does not work: Can a first generation chevy-stovebolt be
used in my 1928 Mastersix?


I will be thankfull for any kind of information.
Greetings
Alexander, alex688@web.de

Master series and standard series engines are different . I believe the 1929 and 1930 are different than the 1928 but not totaly shure . You could have somone who is good at welding cast iron weld up the cracks . From my experiences in welding cast iron the cracks need drilled at each end, v groove out the crack ,then it needs to be heated up in an oven realy warm then welded (while still warm) with nickle rod or what is known as nirod ( arch welding ) then the piece needs to be cool realy slow ( put back in the oven with the oven at temp then shut off oven and left in the oven to cool down slowly ) I belive your best bet is to try and repair what you have or find a good engine in the states and have it shipped to you or just the block componetnts you need , the cylinder section of the block dose unbolt from the lower section . As far as the stovebolt is concerned it will not bolt rite up to the trans ... hope this helps ..
