Re: AERA Engine Specification Sheets

You Know Gary... I wonder if the deck height is measured to the inside of the cylinder bore as this is where the actual quench area is? To calculate proper deck height you would then use a formula to allow for the ten degree cut in the deck (to say square the block on a machine)? Broken link to phot...

Re: AERA Engine Specification Sheets

Like I Said, No score for this post December 3 2004, 7:34 AM I was very disappointed in the material(s) received.

AERA Engine Specification Sheets

I finally got up off my lazy butt and contacted AERA (Engine Rebuilders Association) for information pertaining to spec. sheets and if such a thing was available. The guy was really friendly and accomodating and said he would send the pertinent sheets (58/65 and 66/68) for the MEL engine. No charge ...

Re: Relationship betw. MEL and Ford Gas Truck Engines 477-53
