Go over to the fordfe.com forum, they have a lot of FE information.
Very nice engine, did you make the valve cover adapters or does someone produce them. We CNC'ed a set to put BBC valve covers on a BBF (429-460, 385 series) because there really aren't any nice "old school" type valve covers for the 385 series engines.
Pump gas (10.2-1), hydraulic cammed, 521 CI engine that will either be going in one of my '63 Galaxies or replacing the Y Block in my '62.
The Y Block, 292

Not exactly Ford powered but some of these had Lincoln motors http://www.96trees.com/edwards/edwards.html
Some of these old Glasspars had Y-blocks too I believe
It's o/t but I saw an AMC Concord Wagon with a 5.0 in it a while ago, thought it was cool as hell lol
My '57 F100 with 272 Y-block
My 34, its a 66 289.
That is cool as hell, love the cheaters on the back too.

And speaking of big blocks, heres a 523 going in my '46 pickup. It will be used as my race car tow vehicle.
Radical built 302 in my chopped Merc in progress.
Sure hope you have enough torque......

347 in the 34 Coupe
289 in mt 53 F100
347 65 Mustang
302 in my 32

Roush 353 in John Buck's 34
Blown & Injected 351C in my Anglia
Ford BDA in a 69 Escort

I just sold one of those set ups but mine was one of the factory SK units, shipped it to its new owner a half hour ago, it wouldn't fit on my FRRP SCJ heads.
460 in my '32
Would you explain why it wouldn't fit? I can't imagine why. Mine is a Blue Thunder intake for those who want to know.
here's the roller 302 in my maverick, and the banger motor in my T.
351Cleveland with C6
Love the crossram on the Mav, I saw that over on mmb.maverick.to, it's probably the only cross-ram Mav out there, I love it. I'm glad there's so many Fords with Ford motors out there, let's keep them that way, keep them coming please...
Lke the car in your avatar, there's a 57' that runs around here with a Y-block called Squeaky, it's been racing for years, and by any chance would you know what happened to the TASCA 401-powered 57'?
this whole thread does my heart good. Hell, I didin't know there was anything else . . .
Pic is the cleveland.
Nice I love Pantera's, Mangusta's too...
That is just the coolest!
Don't see too many heavies like that still around. Is it an F7 or F8? Looks to be a twin screw, is that correct??
