Re: What year did Ford drop the rear oil slinger and go to seal?

Ron, I have a 2.498 main crank, with the double slingers.

I'm guessing it is a one year only ('38) crank but, maybe there is transition period, into '39?

Re: aircraft type steel tubing

Will you need to thread one or both ends of the rods you want to use?

Re: Production years for G and H 6 cly flatheads?

Another thing about the H, is that it can be found in HD Ford trucks, in the 254 ci version.

Re: 21 stud deck height, gasket thickness, etc. questions.

A couple of other things that might help, regarding Ford factory specs, is that the nominal, specified deck thickness of the 21 stud block, is .25 and I'm attaching the head bolt pattern for the...

Re: 21 stud deck height, gasket thickness, etc. questions.

I have explained my use of a 2.139 crank pin and offset grinding, to set the deck clearance, in at least one other thread on this forum.

I've also (in the same thread, I think) talked about the...

Re: 21 stud deck height, gasket thickness, etc. questions.

Thank you, Brian.

That's all doable, I was going to rough the mains down anyway for the crank grinder. I'll just measure the main to main distance and machine that too.

Re: 21 stud deck height, gasket thickness, etc. questions.

So, your saying that there is more to it than grinding the mains to 2.399 and using the later seal?

If I need to know, because that is what I intend to do with my '37 block.

Re: 21 stud deck height, gasket thickness, etc. questions.

As I said, in my first post, if you use a crank, with the 2.139 rod journal, you can offset grind and adjust the stroke, for any deck clearance you need.

MY intent is to offset the crank to give...

Re: 21 stud deck height, gasket thickness, etc. questions.

The double slinger rear main, would be a '38 crank, I believe. It should be the same as the '37 but, with 2.499 mains, instead of 2.399. Maybe someone could verify that?

Edit:
The second slinger...

Re: 21 stud deck height, gasket thickness, etc. questions.

I have a early double slinger crank with 2.5 mains, that has std rods but with surface rust.

If you like, you could have it for $25 (cost of crating) plus shipping. I could even send it down to my...

Re: Draining FE coolant through block plugs

I would use a shop vac and try to reduce the hose down to a piece of 3/8 neoprene hose.

Re: Draining FE coolant through block plugs

The only other way to do it, is to knock out a expansion (Welch) plug, on each side. That's no fun either but, if they are steel plugs, that have been in a long time some, may need replaced anyway.

Re: Quest for lincoln yblock pistons

The L2098, is listed as a flat top piston. Ford didn't use any valve relief, in their pistons, until about '63.

Re: Quest for lincoln yblock pistons

First, I've been interested in this engine since the 60's so, I've kept up on it but, I would only have the 368 version.

The stock, compression ht of the 3.5 stroke (317-3.800/341-3.94 bore) is...

Re: Quest for lincoln yblock pistons

There maybe a option for pistons, using the gas, 172 Ford tractor pistons. They are 3.900, .088 over size. I think the 317 would bore that large w/o any problem. That would give you a 334 CI engine....

Re: 21 stud deck height, gasket thickness, etc. questions.

This is what I'm going to do with my late 21 stud engine, if I ever get going on it.

I'll use a .060 Victor gasket, with my flat 40-A1 aluminum heads.

If you surface your block to Ford's...

Re: 390 camshaft

I meant to say the left side (drivers side).

410's are usually C6ME blocks, so it's doubtful it would have a 410 crank.

Blocks, in general, through out the FE years, can have quite a mix of...

Re: 390 camshaft

With the better picture, it looks like it must be a C5AE-A. No other number has that sharp corner like that.

The C5AE-A block was used for 352, 390 and 427. It is, of course, not a 427, as all...

Re: 390 camshaft

Those casting numbers are very hard to make out!

The casting date is either 1965 or 1966 but, the month and day are Jan 16th. It looks more like '66 to me.

Same with the casting number, it...
