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

You could vacuum it out, threw the water pump holes.

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: Valve lifter

There is a factory valve adjustment for hydraulic lifters, for this engine and the range is .100 (.090 - .190). When the valves are closed, at TDC, you force the rocker arm, to bleed the lifter and...

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 was referring the space between the cylinder wall, inside the block, accessed threw the expansion plug hole(Welch plug).

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...

Re: V8 conversion in an 8N

Basically, a 8N is 21 hp, a 650 34.25 hp and a 850 39.55 hp. Those numbers are based on the actual Nebraska Tractor Tests, the industry standard.

The 8n can pull as much as 2550 lb, the 850,...

Re: V8 conversion in an 8N

About 7 years ago, I bought my first tractor. I was looking for a 8N, because my father had 2 of them in the 50's, for his asphalt work but, a 641 came up and I bought it. I've since bought another...

Re: Isky 1023

My question is, if that cam is designed for a radius lifter, won't the edge of the stock lifter cut into the cam flanks?

Re: Adding turbo to classic FE block

I just noticed that you only included one picture and it's the flat carb pad 360HP manifold.

The 390HP was a completely different manifold and was also used on the 385HP, 406.

The 360HP, was a...
