Wow, this is a really good read. Very techy. Thanks guys.
I think that I could actually figure out pushrod length from this thread. I didn't understand for the first half of the thread, but then it all started to make sense, and I read the first half again, and it all really makes sense now. And those pictures that steel put up are great, they really helped make sense of all of this!!!!
This thread needs to be a sticky or something!!!!!!
Yes the 272 Y-block you are referring to is the start of the 312. The 272 I am referring to is more common in the ag and idustrial market. The 272 F.E motor was based off the 272 Y block with the cyclinder head change and proved to good for tractor and stationary equipment application. Durability and a butt load of torque. The only reason I bring up an unfarmiliar engine size was it was the original Manifold-head split motor. When the stepped to the 390 a performance application came into play. Before I hear it, yes there are sizes in between. M
Ol Guy, I'd love to see some or any info you have or can get on the FE272. I thought I knew Fords but this is a new one to me. In the reams of literature I have on Fords I have never seen anything about a 272" FE. Now I'm the 1st one to admit that Ford has done some strange things so I would never say one way or another what Ford has done or not done but this new revelation of an engine I've never heard of, well I'd just like to see something on it. To the best of my knowledge the smallest FE built is a 330" engine for medium duty gasoline powered trucks. This is not to be confused with the 332" FE that was used in 58 and 59 passenger cars. If you have something please come forward with it so I can add it to my library of Ford data.
