Re: Early 1958 430 rebuild

Are there provisions in a 58 Ford to bolt up your early 58 block without the side mount bosses?

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...

The Sting Of This Years Flu Season

Although experts say the flu season peaked a week ago it is not something to take lightly. Like our son most of us have toughed out the flu and were over it in a week.

Re: 1958 Export 383 and 430 specs

Hi there, I read about the "spacers" for the 383 and 430 in 1958, lowering compression from 10.5 to 7.14 or 7.25 respectively. I am wondering if anybody has the ratings (Torq and HP) for these low-CR "export" engines. Not that ratings are always accurate, but they might give a feel for how much was...

Re: 1958 Ford Police 361

Interesting article with car photos and engine specifications. I have a 332 from a 58 Ranch Wagon with machined chambers in the second link. I have sense learned from the FE forum the shim gaskets are 4cc bore volume. http://www.network54.com/Forum/74182/thread/1458241169/last-1458340863/View+Threa...
