Re: Distributor Interchangability

I have a couple of distributors out to compare. The left distributor is FEU-12127-J from a 1958 332 FE, the right FEW-12127-H from a 1959 430 MEL.

Re: Help Rebuilding 430 Cylinder Heads

The 63-65 430 Lincoln heads have small combustion chambers and the pistons are different from other 430s. For 66 - 68 the 462 had a flat chamberless design so they must have noticed the flat was a better idea. Other than that I know a builder that prefers the 462 head due to the smaller - higher vel...

Re: Water Diverters

Barry, Several post in the engine forum concerning water dividers and block thermostats. There were a couple of MEL engines in Engine Masters this year. A builder turned the dividers down and swapped gasket ends. It will circulate coolant like other engines but you will need to fill or block the coo...
