As I figure it, 7 liters is 'roughly' 427.1636 cubic inches. 61.02

5.0 is 305.1, so Ch*vy has it about right - Ford's a little optomistic with
the 302.
5.2 is 317.3 - isn't that what Chr*sler calls a 318?

RIGHT! The flywheels themselves are IDENTICAL! So you can use one from any
of the engines, as long as you are doing like Jeff and taking them in to get
balanced.

As I am doing with my 352 flywheel which I am putting on my 410, and having

Ford did sometimes refer to their 427 engines as 7-Litres. But the actual
66 Galaxie 7-Litre to promote the new 428 hydraulic lifter FE ( a bored and
stroked 390). Not many were sold as they were much more expensive than a
comparably equipped Galaxie 500 XL.

Are the vent window rubbers in good shape? I guess maybe the closers aren't.

So, you have to remove the vent window assembly and repair it.

If you feel like taking your door innards apart and take the vent window
assy out, I can email you easy directions (did it myself last weekend).

Subject: Re: Dead at 55mph

Well Dana,
My uncle bought this new Lincoln back around 1975. Everytime he got it
up to 55mph it just died and drifted off to the side of the road. After
it sat there for about 15-20 minutes he could start it up and drive off,
but at 55mph it would do it again.
Of course he kept taking back to the Ford Dealer, who was replacing
everything they could think of. They went so far as to replace the
motor and that didn't help either. Just about when they were going to
give him another new car more of these problem cars started coming in.
The Ford mechanics could had no problem replicating the crisis.
It got down to calling in the Regional Ford rep. As luck would have it
while they were showing him the problem cars, all the same model, one of
the old retired Ford mechanics came in to chat. Once he was told of the
problem he asked them to raise my uncle's Lincoln up so they could get
under it. He requested a mechanic stay in the car and rev it up to high
rpms simulating highway speeds. Sure enough at high rpms the engine
stalled and wouldn't start again.
Then this old guy walked back to the tank and pointed out the problem.
It seems Ford had used an inferior rubber gas line that went from the
gas tank to the steel fuel line. With fuel flowing through it at high
rpms the flow reduced the internal pressure of the short rubber hose
causing it to collaspe. It remained that way until pressure equalized
itself.
Yet, it took an old experienced retired mechanic to figure it out. And
to think that a short piece of hose costing all of 6 cents was taking
down one of Lincoln's most expensive cars.

Thanks Marko, but I guess I am not getting my idea across. Remember the
trucks with the big black bent shifter sticking up out of the floor
boards for the 4 speed standard transmissons. There has to be a plate
there with a hole for the shifter to stick up out of the floor. I want
a factory plate. I have found a factory plate with no hole in it. I am
not sure exactly where the hole goes. Besides the factory plate with
the hole would be a better and smoother hole than the one I will end up
cutting into a plate without the hole. Somewhere out there is a plate
for a top loader. As I said I have found only one in a '66, but
honestly somebody cut it up. I might be able to use it for a pattern,
but would rather just have a factory made one.

So what's the problem with 360 heads?
I've never been aware there was any difference between a 360 and

Why do you want 4V heads? I will assume that this is going into a street
driven truck, right? 2V heads are ALWAYS better than 4V heads for
anything other than an all out race engine. Unless you are planning a
high RPM WOT engine then you should go with a set of 2V heads.

I'm not really sure what you'ree gonna use the 4v heads for, but I've read
some articles that say the 4v heads, although having bigger ports and valves,
cause a good amount of torque and low RPM power loss.. You might be better
off gettin an aftermarket 4v intake... just a thought

Hey everyone,

I also picked up a rebuilt distributor today, for $69.95 Canadian (about 2
quarts of milk for you statesiders). It's an electronic ignition
distributor for a 360-390 (for my 410). It's built by AutoLine and it's a
D4008.

I have a question, it seems to be made of gray iron, not of cast aluminum
like some others. Does this really make any difference?

It says "motorcraft" on it so I would think it's probly just a later casting.

Okay, okay, I'll calm down. The 410 and 428 flywheels should be, when
bought from the parts counter, the same cause they have nothing to be
detroit balanced to until they are put on an engine then balanced.

So theoretically if I, say, needed to replace the flywheel on my 428 one
day, I'd go to ford, buy a zero balanced unit, then the machine shop would
counterweight it the same as the one which I was replacing it.

That's all I meant, sorry for the confusion. But if you got one 428
flywheel that was already detroit balanced, I would think you'd have to
re-balance it to your own 428 cause I don't think they were all detroit
balanced exactly the same.

Hey Marko,

I was a little shocked at the price also, but here's the real deal (I do own
the book you mentioned, and this is where I learned about the special 428
flywheel, check it out). It appears that these particular flywheels are rare
because 1) they are not zero-balanced, they have a counterweight molded into
them, 2) the 428's had different cranks (at least a few people have told me
this), meaning there is a difference between the standard 428 cranks (like
mine) and the CJ's and SCJ's, meaning that the counterbalance in the flywheels
might be different (this is what I'm assuming because a guy had one for a 428
SCJ and he said it wouldn't work on the standard 428), 3) since probably most
of the cars that the 428's were put in used automatics, the manual
transmission flywheel (which is what I need) was relatively rare, and 4) they
are still not in production (like the 390 flywheels still are)....no need to
go further, I think. You said you were working on a 410....you may have the
same kind of deal if George is correct (thanks for going to bat for me
George!).

The reason I said the 360 and 390 flywheels were different is that I held the
wheel from my 69 F-100 4x4 (360) up to a new 390 wheel, and, low and behold,
they were different. In fact, the 390 clutch wouldn't bolt to the 360 flywheel
since the 390 clutch was larger in diameter (and significantly
heavier).....Now, they both might not have been from the same year, but they
WERE different.....

You're right about balancing the entire lower end as a unit....The reason the
balancing was so expensive with the 390 wheel on the 428 crank is that the guy
was going to have to add counterweights....how he was going to do this, I
don't know, but I assumed it involved welding or drilling holes and bolting. I
figured this process might run the risk of doing something funny to the
flywheel, so therefore, to avoid a hole in my cab floor, I figured the real
428 was the way to go....

I think I've done my homework Marko, just trying to keep you honest.......

Colorado Jeff
