Dear Dpb,
We can supply all gaskets and seals for a y-block. You can install
without removing the heads, use an air chuck or bungee cord.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - 57 F100 - Oil Blockage

Hello all,

My name is Geoffrey and I just bought a 57 F100, and I love it.

I do have a problem. The engine is a 272 V8, and the right side does not
get oil up into the valves. In other words, I took the valve cover off,
and it is completely dry. The left side looks fine. My question is this:
What is the best way to find and clear the blockage? Has anyone done this
and found a good way to do it?

Thanks for your help

Geoffrey

Replying to Mark Ames, Red saw the posting and said that with the engine
and front clip installation, you will have a choice about where to place
the engine. that will make all the difference on what exhaust you can
run. running efficient exhaust is critical if you are building up the
engine. if there's no room for the rams horn or the truck 4-into-1
style headers, you may end up with y-block passenger style headers or
something you have to make yourself.
It's good that you are thinking through to the exhaust at this point.

Michelle your absolutely right and I stand corrected electric wipers were an
option in 51 and 52. My shop manual does show an electric motor and it does
not show the connection to the dash.
