    Boingk's F250 4x4

    Evening all. I picked this up today. Let me know if the pics don't work. She's an early dentside F250 4x4, commonly called the 'Highboy' option. She has a 351C and manual trans, lots of rust in the floors and a fairly clean engine compartment.

    That's an 09/74 XB panelvan engine block. My 11/74 XB panelvan's VIN, starts with JG45PA.

    Boingk's F250 4x4

    Yeah roger that. I didn't think it was a 400, looks just like a regular-deck 351 to me. The heads look to be standard 351 castings too. EDIT: Just ran the engine number, it is apparently a September '74 date of production destined for a Falcon 500 Van.

    Boingk's F250 4x4

    Thanks mate, and yeah interesting setup. The engine number is as follows, I get JG45PB - 41814K. Chassis number below for reference. Interesting find on the rear axle code, though, it apparently is listed for a 1975 1/2 F250 4x2 pickup. Maybe this whole thing is a conversion? Wow.

    clutch cable reinforcement

    That’s very similar to mine dean. My sedan has some chrome under the bonnet so I got it made out of stainless as I couldn’t weld stainless at the time. I made my ute one out of mild steel and painted it white [emoji1303]

    Fun fact - the current range of FORD Motorcraft batteries, are also made by Century. (just with Motorcraft stickers)

    I prefer the look of the XG unless the XH is an XR6 or 8. Either way they are both equally as nice to drive.

    block only needs a bit of notching, I could clearance it with a burr, or just get it milled it while machining the rest of the engine, 347W also saw this while I looked up stroker clearance

    The first Windsor blocks (221/260/289) can theoretically be stroked with the 2M crank from the 302 but the pistons will stick out the bottom of the bores slightly at BDC. Hardly worth worrying about that minor issue but also hardly worth bothering with as Thom said, pre-65 blocks are 5-bolt and rare as anyway. On the subject of the 255, they only made them for 2 miserable years in the 80s (I think 81-82) then they gave up on that dead-end. I think they were good for something like 120 HP. But GM were doing the same thing with the SBC so Ford can't cop too much flak from it. This short production run makes them extremely rare, and pretty much irrelevant now.

    255 was a smog era us engine, I'd be surprised if there was any over here, apparently there's not a lot of parts interchangeability with regular 8.2 deck Windsors, but I've only ever read about those

    The 255 has a 3" stroke like the 302 but the crank is a lot lighter, the crank pins are semi-hollow and the counterweights are smaller. Racers in speedway stock classes used to hunt around wreckers for these cranks because they had a lower rotating mass. They could break more easily too but racing is about breaking stuff to win Sent from my CPH1920 using Tapatalk

    221 260 and 289 all share the same stroke, the biggest problem with 221's and 260's is the small bore size doesn't let you get a decent size valve without being shrouded/running into the bore, the other problem with 221's and 260's is most them are of the 5 bolt bellhousing variety

    I think you'd put on it whatever the LS crowd uses on their conversions... Plenty of different turbos kicking around and yeah, I'd go reversed manifolds into a big single mounted on the passenger side (opposite the battery) to simplify plumbing. You could go underfloor but that has its own issues of drain back, etc and ground clearance on a Falcon would be a hassle. That would be a hoot but the cost will go way beyond just the conversion. Even with a conservative amount of boost, you'd be knocking on the door of 600hp. I reckon you'd pop the borgy diff, even if it is a 28-spline 4-pinion. I think a built 9" would have to happen.
