Re: valve cover gaskets

Actually the 1954 thru 1959 valve cover gaskets do not have the tabs whether its a car or truck. Starting in 1960, the Ford Y covers be it a car or truck started using the tabbed valve cover...

Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

Peak numbers were 203 HP at 5200 rpm, 256 lb/ft torque at 3200 rpm.



The camshaft was indeed the Isky MAX #1.

Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

Frank. Thanks for the tip on the picture posting. When I get a chance, I'll go through the dyno computer and dig up the peak HP and rpm numbers.

Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

Because the Eaton Balancing website concentrates heavily on the Ford Y-Block builds, other engine builds are not posted on that site. I can see why there's not a lot of engine dyno information out...

Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

I have dyno tested several Ford Flathead V8's. The standard build for a street Flattie will make 150 HP while an all out build (normally aspirated) will break the 200 HP mark. I did dyno a blown...

Basically four different connecting rods used during the years of Y production with all being forged. Forging ID's would include EBU, ECZ, C1TE and C2AE. No cast rods there. If the connecting rods...

Re: Help identifying this dipstick tube

That tube looks correct for a front sump Y. Without knowing more about it, there's a good chance it was installed upside down in the block thus making the tab on the tube not aligning with the bolt...

Re: 1957 292 Y block horse power

My non-Ford book shows the 1957 Thunderbird 292 and the 1957 Ford car 292 both being rated at 212 HP. Sounds like a misprint in your "Motors Manual". Ted Eaton.


Addendum: As is being brought...

Re: 56 312 Coolant residue on rear main cap.

Not to be an alarmist but that antifreeze on that rear main bolt would make me suspect a crack in the rear main bolt hole. The front four main caps have longer bolts than those two bolts in the rear...

Re: Different firing order for 302 ci engine

I'll add that when Ford went to using the lightweight crankshafts in the HO 302 engines, there was a propensity for the crankshafts breaking at the first journal. Those lightweight crankshafts used...

Re: Drilling on carpet for safety belts

A tapered punch and a hammer works for me. Just drive the punch through the carpet and floor pan until the desired hole size in the floor pan is obtained. Ted Eaton.

Re: 292 timing cover questions

That upper coolant hole in the timing cover which doesn't transition to the block is a core hole to facilitate the removal of the sand used to cast the inner cavity within that cover.

Re: Y-Blocks Forever

The YBF forums are currently down. The owner of the site is currently on a road trip but will get a chance to determine and possibly fix the problem maybe as early as Monday.

Re: Is This Frame Worth Anything?

On the Fords, the VIN is also stamped on the top and right side of the rear frame crossmember. Don't know if the Mercurys would be stamped in the same place or not. Ted Eaton.

Re: 312 rebuild. Look what Ford forgot ?

Re: spark plugs

The compression ratio is a big player when selecting the heat range for the spark plugs. The lower the compression ratio, then the need for a hotter spark plug. The 272 with 7-8:1 compression...
