Subject: FTE Pre61 - Y Block ID

I just bought what was advertised as a 272 Y block complete engine less the
carb with 3 spd OD with drive shaft from a 55 F100. I was told this was not
the original engine in the truck, original 6 cyl.

The casting number on the left side of block is EDB 6015 with 8A F on the
right side of the block. I think this is a 292 from 1958 or 59. The heads
and intake all have the 8A F code and the 2 bbl intake casting number is
B9EA-9425-B and has 4 studs to mount the carb. Heads have 6090 casting
number under the rocker arm shaft. Can someone with a parts book decode
these numbers and tell me what I actually have? I want to rebuild the
engine and get the OD working then drop it in my 55 F100.

Thanks in advance
Roger
55 F100, 239 Y block on last legs

Roger, I have book "Ford Y-Block", how to repair and rebuild....
but it seems to be for cars only. Maybe #'s are diff. for trucks.
It is a very good book and has part #s and breakdowns, etc.
Available from Motorbooks International.
Best I could decipher from it was:
E or F code heads had single valve spring retainers
All head codes in book start with an E ei: EBU
Closest eng code to what you gave is:
EDB-D or E for 312 eng. of 57'
I know this isn't much help, but you may have to tear-down
and measure cylinders, stroke, etc. to compare to specs.
P.S. Closest intake # I have is B9A-9424-B for 57-59 292 2bbl.
Welcome to the confusing world of Ford.

Can anyone tell me what gauge of wire is appropriate from the ballast
resistor to the voltage regulator?

Thanks

I printed a color wiring diagram for the 55 F100 off a web site.

Can anyone point me back to that site? Lost my copy and did
not bookmark it.

Thanks
Howard

My 56 F-100 had a 79 Volare front clip on it when I got it. It's way low
with the torsion bars cranked down. I want to raise it, but it looks
like the upper control arm is almost at the outboard end of the camber
adjustment holes. Would I be compromising the control arms in any way if
I elongated the holes so I could raise the truck and still keep the
correct camber? Any other suggestions? control arm interchange?
