Re: Early Y Block OHC 239 Spark Plugs

Early Y Block OHC 239 Spark Plugs

Did the early 239 Y Block have 18mm spark plugs, or, 14mm? Heard it both ways. I argue this once a week. Please, someone put this to bed. Thanks.

The engine came out of a 55 F 100. All I have is the engine and the 3 sp tranny.
