It is marketing mainly. If the numbers do not come to a whole, either engineering and/or marketing may fudge the number. Take the 427 for example. It is actually at 425 but it didn't sound good...

Post Re: wiper arm and pivot 55 crown vic

It may the transmission and pivot assy is different for either model (hi-roof / low-roof) so as to prevent what you are experiencing. I can't get to my MPC to verify it.

Or you have the wrong arm...

Correct.

But you would want a 61/ unit as it went from TV to modulator valve.

If it was my car and choice (and IMO only), I would do a later FMX install, getting a much stronger trans that...

Re: wiper arm and pivot 55 crown vic

The reason being is there were two roof heights in 55/56 depending on body style. My cataloging is hidden so I can't give you details right now.

The 1958/59 361 was a high compression engine meant for performance. It was also available as a POLICE option along with the 332/352.

The later 360 LT (1968-1976) engine was as a result of FORD...

Post Re: Help Quick Fuel SL450SV & Y Block 292

If you have the PHASE II engine, the OEM 2V intake should be 4-bolt plenum. Below is shown with a 2300 HOLLEY -

If true, the 4V to 2V adapter should work. That would at least make it street-able.

Post Re: 1955 Ranch Wagon/ Rear end Question

If the pinion seal went, did you re-fill to capacity? Also check vent as if the rear cannot breath, the excess pressure will blow seals.

Post Re: My T Bird is a 292 bored 40 over I found

You are actually better off as the 292 and 312 used the same block casting(s) but the 312 casting main web was weakened by machining protocols. The 292 block is much stronger.
