Why not put in a nice 302 other fine F-O-R-D engine????????? For the life

personally because I also have a '64 Custom Cab (292 Y-block, thank you

My reasoning is as follows: I had the 350 block, I've got friends with
350 knowledge, and you'd be amazed by what is actually powering a lot of
vehicles out there, namely 350's. There cheap, parts are available almost
anywhere, and it's different, I've never been main stream.

My dad has a 57 ranchero with a 312 Y block with a 4 bbl and a t-bird 3sp
w/overdrive. In my book that beats any motor gm makes. Sounds great! lots
of horsepower (sets you back in the seat) and it runs whenever you want to
drive it several thousand miles per year, plus it gets about 18 mpg. Use a
F-O-R-D in a FORD. What's the story with the 262? In my 53 F100 I have a
223 with a hand built stainless 3 1bbl intake and hand built split stainless
headers with the original 3 sp... Wow is that truck fun to drive and it is
more reliable than anything I own, it also gets about about 20mpg. If you
want to get rid of the 262 e-mail me at myoung sojourn.com

In SoCal we are forced to use a new low sulfur diesel fuel. Fleets with
the 7.2 and Power Stroke engines are finding premature wear on injector
springs and injector pumps. Anybody else having these problems? Any

recently tuned and seems to run ok. Is it best to stick with the Carter
or is there a better setup. Again I really only care about mileage, I'm

Subject: RE: Powerstroke Breakin
Message-Id:

I have a '95' Powerstroke and followed the breakin recommended by Ford
in the information packet you should receive with your truck. From what
I remember there was no special procedures although it is always good to
accelerate and decelerate a lot in the early miles. I have 26k miles on
the engine and it never needs additional oil between 5k mile changes.
As far as power I haven't compared it with other Powerstrokes but have
compared it with a friends 460 powered motorhome that has a full Bank's
kit installed. When I am loaded with a large camper, a comparable load
to his MH, I can out accelerate and out climb him. Can't say that
breakin had anything to do with how my engine performs but whatever I
did it seems to have worked. One thing I did notice was that it took
over 10k miles for the fuel mileage to reach its maximum. My experience
is that modern engines that were properly manufactured need little
breakin but when an engine is rebuilt breakin is much more critical.

Enjoy your Powerstroke. I seriously looked at the Dodge before buying
and am not sorry I chose a Ford.

Something has to be drasticly wrong, unless you carry 3 or 4 tons of stuff
around with you. I have owned several 6 cyl ford trucks, and they genrally
get around 16 to 17 mpg. I would suggest having your carburetor looked at
or may the fuel pump has too much pressure...good luck

It depends on your engine and what you're looking for. You said you
wanted more "umph." I'm running a souped up 390 that really snaps
your neck. With 3.25 I can still get off the line pretty quickly, but
I can't smoke the tires (at least not too much!). My next set of tires
will be smaller as I went to 35s to try to improve my milage - it didn't.
Because of the tire size most of my performance comes between 30-60mph.
The 390 is a gas hog any way you look at it. If I wanted to smoke Mustangs
I would definately run around 3.7+

There are additives for low sulfur fuel for diesel engines, but the
Powerstroke and engines since that time are designed to operate on low sulfur
fuel. California is not the only state to require the use of that fuel.
Most of the additives for increased lubrication are avaliable at truck
stops, fuel inj shops ect.. use of 10wt and autotrans oil is not recomended
by most inj pump manufactures. I can say that I used autotrans oil in Alaska
with #1 diesel for years in a 6.2 diesel that went over 200,000 miles. And
have used it in 6.9 and 7.3 engines as well. I would not try it in a Pwr
Stroke engine though.

You are correct. Brain fart on my part. If memory serves correctly
(my truck is at home right now) it looks like this:

intake-------------|
______V______
/\ /\
/\_\_________/_/\
block---> / \ / \
\ \ / /

(actually closer to center of
the valve covers than I can draw)

So, to be correct, the push rods come out, the distributor comes off
and the _valve_ covers are removed.

I don't recall what the original poster was talking about so I can't

Hi All

As far as the engine goes, it doesnt really require an extensive break in.
The engines are fully dynoed at the navistar plant before shipping. The
Powerstoke is the name for chose for the navistar T444E that international
uses in its 2 ton trucks http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.navistar.com) They dont require any
breakin for the engine other than good warmups and cooldowns. Most of the
breakin (varying speeds ect..) is for the rest of the drivetrain. You
should be happy with your PS, I know I am, and I have seen what the StarPower
marine powerstokes can do in boats, and they are impressive. Starpower
offers the marine version of the powerstroke up to 330hp and 720 ftlbs of
torque. International offers the T444E at ratings of 225 hp and 630 ftlbs of
torque in 2ton trucks.

Message-ID:

Okay, all you ol' Farts -
What happens when you put a modern detergent multiweight oil, say a 20W50
racing oil, in an old flathead V8 designed for straight weight non-detergent
oil?
My Merc flathead has some oil pressure with 40 weight ND & STP, and the
oil's black as coal as soon as I put it in. Bearings sound fine under load,
etc, but you can hear them for a split second on startup, till the
aforementioned 'some' oil pressure builds up ('tween 15 and 30 cold,
occasionally 15 warm). This is with new oil and filter. I don't remember
hearing the bearings on startup when I got the truck a couple weeks ago, with
what appeared to be prehistoric sludge, I mean oil.
Any and all comments appreciated.

>Dear Jonas,

Engines were never designed for non-detergent oil -- it was all that was
available at the time. Any engine can bemefit from the newest oils!

Racing oils have some unusual properties, too -- they are generally not
intended for norma driving and in many cases they are not as good for your
vehicle than regular high quality oil.

I think I would recommend a straight weight oil for your car if it is
burning oil or has little compression -- both symptoms indicate mechanical
wear and tear, thus indicating an overhaul. Good luck.

Anybody have a book or just a memory that tells what color the engines were

black with red intake and valve covers. This is what I remember from my
dad's '64 that he sold in 1979 and what I gathered from the engine I took
out, purported to be the original (but it was so grease soaked it was hard
to tell). I am pretty sure this is right, tho. Now I am getting ready to
rebuild the 223 Six in my '61. It's already been out at least once and is
currently painted blue.

Is this engine supposed to be black with red valve cover too, or is it all
red? Or neither? Anybody know?

Hello: Ford Power Parts of Norwalk California specializes in FE engine
parts. They have the oil pump of choice in any high performance engine
and also would have the other parts you need. I don't have the number
handy, but if you can't find it through information, I can get it when I

A word of caution in putting a det oil in a engine that has burned ND oil.
If you do this and the engine has a high amount of buildup of sludge and
other things the detergent oil will set alot of this stuff free at once. To
switch over an old engine like that I have removed the oil pan cleaned it out
and on OHV engines removed the intake and the valve covers and removed the
buildup there as well. Then only ran the engine only 100 miles or so and C/O
the oil. The new generation oils are much better than the old oils and offer
