V8 Engines / Re: 318 to 360
« Last post by FORD F-150 on August 19, 2019, 08:18:09 pm »
As I did, everything should be compatible to the new engine. The only thing I had a problem after all the hassle was the 360 is externally balanced engine as for the 318 is internally balanced meaning you would have to have your torque converter removed to weld on some weights to balance the engine or get a flex plate off a 360 engine or order new from an auto parts store. I get my parts from summit racing all online for the engine, transmission and diff parts.

V6 or Straight 6 Engines / Re: 251 oil change

If you look under the machine, there should be a hole where the drain might be. Normally it is toward the back of the machine unless the motor was changed and the drain moved to the back of the engine (toward the front of the machine) if that don't help then someone whose been there might tell you

This might sound stupid but where is the drain plug on the 251. This motor has been sitting for 20 plus years and I want to try to get it going. Iíve looked everywhere can find anything.

Haywire keep us posted on the restoration. Pics and stories to go along with the restoration. Revive the activities on the website, it used to be a great forum but all seem to have died down after the site closed down. Everyone loves pics for more ideas of restoration.

The narrow guage is 59" while wide is 74".  I think they both have 2 seats.

There is either a wide guage or a narrow guage.  R12 were generally a narrow gauge.  Your looks like it is a wide guage. R18 is a wide guage.  I think that the R27 is just built in the late 56 or early 57 year and not really any different.
