Re: 1956 272 flywheel

The flywheels from the 215/223/262 Ford sixes will interchange with the 239/256/272/292/312 Ford Y engines. The bell-housings are different though. As previously brought up, the pressure plate bolt...

Re: Why Mushroom head on Lifter

The 215 Six when introduced in 1952 had the same mushroom lifters as used later for the Ford Y V8 engines. Before that, the Lincoln 337 CID Flathead used a mushroom lifter that was slightly larger...

Re: revisiting 1960 Ford 292 Y-Block PCV

I have had good results using the baffled valley covers and simply putting a grommet/PCV valve at that point where the rear mounted road draft tube originally exited. Years ago I put a PCV valve in...

Re: Oil to use?

The reason for using non-detergent oil in a non-filtered engine is so that the contaminates in the oil drop to the bottom of the pan rather than be carried in suspension where those contaminates can...

Re: '60 Y-block oil pump

If the oil pump is original to your car, it is a gerotor oil pump with an aluminum housing and will have a flat cover. Instead of a gasket under the cover, there will be an O ring in a groove. ...

Re: valve cover gaskets

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...

Re: Help identifying this dipstick tube

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.

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: 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: 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.
