I didn't think there were enough questions on here yet so I figured I'd add to it... Ok, first off, I put a new (Used) engine in my 260 - in doing so, I found out that it's a 280 block and trans. it has a 260 intake on it... the head I'm not too sure on. Anyone heard of this?? Also, I'm having a heluva time with the clutch... I bled the line and everything, but the pedal has no pressure - it will not engage. The slave cylinder is the non-adjustable type... Any thoughts for a solution?? I suppose that's it for this installment. As always, thanks in advance for any help you folks might be able to offer!

It's very common for people to interchange parts for 240/260/280 models. As long as your replacement engine runs okay, don't worry. In fact the 280 L28 block is usually considered preferable to earlier models.

No idea on the head, but you can identify it by the casting stamp on it.

As long as your "new" engine runs good, consider yourself lucky.

The clutch master cyl might be bad. A $30 part available at most auto stores.

Make sure you bled your clutch slave cylinder properly. This take 2 people. One presses the clutch pedal all the way down - then the other person opens the bleed valve on the cylinder. Then you close the valve by tightening it back - then the other person releases the pedal. You repeat this until all the air is out of the lines and you have pedal pressure.
