Default Re: Installing a Y-Block in a 36 Coupe

If you do swap...other engines are a better fit and generally capable of more displacement and power as well. In order of fit probably SBC, early Olds, early Cadillac. Many "Modern" (hey, NONE of this stuff is actually modern!) engines have long front cases and accessories and poorly placed sumps for early Ford use...the engines I listed are very compact endways and have rear sump. Remember, '35-6 Fords have VERY short engine compartments and steeply slanted radiators, and are much harder to fit with later engines than say a '32 or '40-48 cars.
