    Are you a Y block hoarder ? Specifically a hoarder of y block parts and rare old y block speed equipment and other goodies ?

    If so identify yourself and show us what you have :)

    And while you are at it, dust off a pair of Edelbrock script valve covers and sell them to me ;)

    I'd only want you to sell them to me if you had more than one pair. :)
    Sharing is more rewarding than hoarding ;)

    I have come to terms with it I am a Y-Block Horder.
     
  6. I have some y block parts. Mainly a tri carb intake. no y block in site. :D
     
  7. I have two garages, both have a crap load of y block parts, getting ready to sell some. My favorite part is an edelbrock aluminum 3x2 intake. I plan to refurb some of the holley 94s I have and put that on my 56 Fairlane.

    I'm an accidental hoarder. Nobody wants the engines around here. So under the bench they stay.

    For my part I have a 57 312 with the good heads and a complete 292. I have an Offy tri power manifold and a pair of finned Offy valve covers.

    My tri power was rebuilt by dickster27.

    I now have an Edelbrock 573 tri power manifold arriving soon. :)

    But I need those valve covers to go with it for my 26 RPU.

    I collected and liquidated two pretty good piles of Y-block stash. One in the early 70's based on a 57 w/E code complete induction, a tri power and several complete 292s and second pile 10 years ago based on a nice 56 Customline w/57 4100 Holley flange intake and distributor, tripower, two complete 312's, one w/Jauns popups, a 3 sp w/ OD etc, etc . Wish I had a digital camera then. Both times I had an epiphimy that there is NO way a Y is gonna go fast as I need to go, so out the shit went. However Y's run great even with out much love and they ain't SBC's. Nothin' makes me more weary that a rod w/350350. WTF.

  11. IMO, nothing sounds as good as a y block with some glasspacks.

    Yer exactly right, that's the way my Customline was, rapped great when ya shifted. It was 3 on the tree, never had a shifter hole dug in the floor, nice tight car. Sounded just like my moms 56 Country Squire did 50 years ago, it was white woody w/ T-bird mill and stick shift. Customline was a 2dr post black cherry body was painted on the rottisery in and out, I sorta miss it some times in a way.

    So far I only have a pair of 292's. 1 from a '61 unibody and the other is a '59 from an unknown source.

    Also have a clean set of ECZ-G heads with a nice set of ECG rockers. Also have a ECZ-9425-B intake.

    Planning to put one together for my Unibody.....eventually.

    By the way, does anyone have pics of fenderwell headers installed in their F100?

    I have a few 292s, and few speed parts. PM if you have a pair of thunderbird valve covers and/or thunderbird air cleaner you'd like to sell.

    I have a whole storage room full of y-blocks, approx 20+. I was (destroying) one every year drag racing with my factory supercharged '57 Ford sedan, I had to soinic test at least four blocks every time I started another build to find ones with thick enough cylinder walls, for my blower engines. I used to turn them down when offered as I had so many at one time and was running out of space, now I pick every 292-312 as usable cores are getting impossible to find.

    Do not use stock rods, no matter how modifed they are on a supercharged y-block. They will break! John Mummert can get you a drop in set of rods for a good price that are much stronger.

    I have had great luck with Eagles rods in my Y's. I even broke a crank once, and the eagle rods did nto break.
     
  30. Not all Y Block parts have to be old to be hoarded :D

    Howzabout a new set of John Mummert aluminum heads for the might Ys
