It amazes me how we can make airplanes fly 3 times the speed of sound but we still melt and damage shit in engines.

Small block my ass. That piston in a small block with a 4" strock would hit the crank counterweight just past 90[SUP]o[/SUP] ATDC. That thing is taller the cylinder of a small block!

An expansion T slot?

Not sure what its out of, but it sure as hell isn't a small block
Thank you GN 7 I am glad you saw it too! The DS.

I kid you not. It is a small block Ford. :wink2:
Ive seen 4.5" arms in these SBF's.:))eek:))

This trivia should be right up GN7's ally. Whats that piston out of? The kind of racing these are used in can get as heated as prostock, and the building secrets more protected. It still amazes me the amount of money spent.

Caught this on teardown for a new build. Pulled the heads and #5 was full of oil and thats the #3 piston. It passed thru the exhaust to the other.

Its out of a Flathead. The T-slot, oil ring below the pin and the slight dome....Flat head for sure. And yes, 4" stroke.

As well as a round piston with a full skirt.
Yeah, its a flat head! Same bore spacing as a small block(think about that sometime) but the deck height sure as hell isn't!!!!!!
I have asked this many times before. Define small blocl. Is a 332 FE as small block? Why not? I think it even has a shorter deck than a flat head.

That isn't a 292 or 312 Y block piston is it? Haven't seen one personally, but I know they had almost 4" stroke in some of them.

Its a 8BA merc motor. Hahaha.
7 inch rods and a 3 3/16 piston, makes it a small block for shure. If I could get a 4" piston in one of these, get the deck down shorter, Id be a comfortable man for the rest of my life.:wink2:
Nothing like spending more than a SBC or SBF for a fraction of the power and the braggings rights at Bonniville.

A 7" rod with a 4" stroke already adds up to more than a SBF deck height, and doesn't even have a piston on it yet:D

The father of the guy that drives boat use to crew on this car. Its why I hate magnetos to this day. They use to sit me on the fender, plug the sparkplug wires on my fingers when they adjusted the valves. One night the guy "bumped it" alittle to much with the mag switch on and it lit on 4 cylinders. . It literally burnt holes in the ends of my fingers, but then cauterized them at the same time.

This thing hauled ass. It had a FULL main girdle in it that REPLACED the main caps AND bolted to the pan rail useing all the pan holes, then a special pan bolt to it. This thing was big bank back then.


Alot of people don't know it, but the flathead, the 292/312, the SBF, the 351 W and all the 345 engines all the way to the 400M all have the same bore spacing. For a reason!

I figured that there was a story behind your feelings for the magneto.

Tooling.

Same reason GM kept the same bore spacing of the 348/409 on the 396/427/etc...
