  3. I've got a '57 292 sitting on a stand, not sure why. Sold the car it was going to go in. I still kinda like the idea of dressing it up a bit.

    Still have my '57 312 'Bird Y, gifted to me by my bud Lenny. My orig. 'Bird valve covers were 'lifted' by some a$$hole, probably just to sell...I have the '56 312 intake, single Holley. Thief that got the valve covers also took the Edelbrock three 2 intake, w/orig. 97s...
    I also have my '54 239 original mill from my '54 Ford Coupe, that now has a fresh 406 FE. Wheee!

    I am by no means hoarding any y-block stuff, but between my son and I, we have two 292’s in drivers and a 56 312 waiting on a rebuild to replace the 292 in my 56.

    I could . I hate LS engine more. I have all the stuff to do a 302, which I bought because someone is LS swapping another poor 59 . If the 312 runs, and I hope it does,I'll run it. But 20 years of bad storage doesn't bode well. It's a cost point thing. I have everything to do a Chevy small block, but, a Chevy in a Ford isn't right, and not worth considering. I have had nothing but bad luck with Y blocks, and prefer any other Ford engine, but the keep falling in my lap. I have had multiple tri powers, valve covers, distributors, and manifolds pass through my hands, and not one decent Y block to run them on. It is a boat anchor to me, but I would walk before an LS swap. Maybe the wrong post to say I hate the Y block, but the Irony of finding so many cool parts over the years is striking.

    Is it hoarding if you use them?. 1 for the hot rod and one in my 57 Tbird which has 2 4barrel original converted to twin throttle body fuel injection. I do keep some spares maybe 6 sets of heads, a 292 crank, 312 crank, manifolds, intakes and a spare long block 292. Maybe just enough “spares”. MIKE

    Late last year I picked up a 64 truck 292 to get the distributor and PCV system but since it has a truck timing chain cover and a rear sump oil pan it might get built and installed in a 40 ford if I ever find one I can afford.

    Looks like a box to contain a carb for a supercharger application.

    Tim McMaster is right down the road-so to speak (well 3 hrs down I-5). I am driving down on thursday to drop off my 312 for him to fix up. I can't wait to get it back so I can stuff it and run it.

    Lots of cool stuff here. I'm just starting my hoarding, picked up a standard bore 1957 T-Bird 312 Special E code a couple years ago that spins freely. I hope $300 wasn't too much too pay.

    It will be too much if you disassemble the engine and check for cracks in the main bearing webs and discover that it’s cracked which is common to the 312 blocks.

    However if you end up with a useable 312 crank and usable ECZ- G heads then you can find a good 292 block and go from there.

    Ran across 2 pairs of NFS ( not for sale) 471 heads. 292 truck heads - low compression - not factory authorized but can be used with superchargers. Easier to find than EDB-D heads.

    I think those heads with screw in studs are SBF heads. Y- blocks have rocker shafts.

    Pretty hard to hoard Y block parts when you don’t even know what they look like. :D
