Re: Adding turbo to classic FE block

I must make a correction to the CR, it was 10.5, not 10.8 (hit wrong key) but, still the highest Ford CR for the FE.

I bought it from the guy that pulled the engine but, I didn't want the ...

Re: Adding turbo to classic FE block

Here's the sonic test, after it was bored to 4.110 and a before and after chamber picture.

I'm installing a Eagle, 428 crank and .060 over 410 pistons in it so, it will be a 423 CI engine now,...

Re: Adding turbo to classic FE block

I was a mechanic from '62, until '70. Most of that time (2 years in the Army as a mechanic), I worked in SoCal and the shop had a tow service and a wrecking yard. I had access to all kinds of things....

Re: Adding turbo to classic FE block

I'm the proud owner of a '58 Edsel 361, cast in Sept of '57. They were also in the '59 line up and were a 2 year only engine.

The stated bore size was always a mystery to me. It was called out at...

Re: combustion chamber design

As a competition engine, against other L heads, I like the 21 stud better than the large cube 24 stud applications and I like FT pistons, over domed.

With FT pistons, you can, potentially get a...

Re: 21 study cylinder head differences

Bob, I only suggested the measuring cup as a way to see if there was a obvious difference. Not as a exact measurement.

If you have a good level and plane the head surface at 3 points, with jack...

Re: 21 study cylinder head differences

For me, the one at the top of Pete picture, looks like the smaller chamber, because the valve pocket, looks shallower. The extension to the cylinder, is longer than the bottom one but, it is also...

Re: Max Tyre Size for M47 Pickup 16" Rim

I run 215 x 85 x 16's on my F350. They are 30.39" tall.

Your 215 x 70 x16, should be 27.85". The 85's should give a extra 2.5+".

If your rim width will except the 235's width, you'd have a tire...

Re: What year is this truck?

I'm guess it's a '35 Model 51, short WB. These are pictures of my, unmolested '35. It looks the same to me. If you look lose you can see the "X" , same s mine and if you look even closer, you might...

Re: 400jr cam

Ronnie, are you talking 119 for the LSA or the ICL?

ICL can be changed but LSA can't.

These are made with Farmall "H" cranks, that are 4 1/4, to start with. curiously the bore & stroke of a "H" is 3 3/8 x 4 1/4, 152 ci.

They can't be made with...

Re: 286 Dyno Results

Speaking of cams and compression, how many are aware of the Dynamic Compression Ratio (DCR)?

It is the actual compression that the engine sees, when the intake valve closes, on the compression...

Re: 286 Dyno Results

This was a high end build, with bigger valves and nice port work. It was also relieved but, I don't think that does much but, reduce compression and compression is very hard to get!!

I've only...

286 Dyno Results

First this isn't my engine. I stumbled across it yesterday.

Since there are very few dyno results for these engines, I thought I would post this to show what even a high end build might produce.

Re: 1965 352V8 very rough idle with back fires

I agree with the info on the condenser. Change it out with a new American made.

Regarding jumping timing, in the years I was a mechanic, I found that if the timing chain, jumped 1 tooth, it would...

If anyone has ever seen a "spun" bearing, that is all the evidence that is needed to prove that tangs do not keep a bearing from spinning.

It's the crush that holds them, once the crush has...

Re: ford in Germany during the war

The aerial photos prove that.

It seems to me, that if they leveled that plant, early on, it would have shorten the war.
