There are myriad threads started by peeps who are crying for 223 exhaust manifolds. Obsolete since the late 1970's, not reproduced, no Ford Dealer or obsolete parts vendor has any.

I know where exactly one is that's not cracked. A pal a mine (and Col Flashman's) has been hoarding it, cuz he's been driving a "well patina'd" 1954 F100 223 as his daily driver for 30 years.

Col: I was speakin' with JB aka Ferd Berfel t'other day on the Ameche. During the course of the conversation, he said FoMoCo's Mileage Maker Six promotional name for the 223 I-6 is ridiculous.

Even with O/D, he said he's lucky to get 15 MPG...highway.

Interesting......I have 4 of these engines, 1 215, 2 223's,and 1 262. None of them have cracked exhaust manifolds. Where exactly do they crack at?

I drove a '63 1/2 ton pickup with the 262 and 4 speed for 7 years as my daily driver and got a consistent 15-17 mpg.....not bad, I thought. Love those motors.....

I've had one crack around the bolt holes in the center. It was a pretty long crack. The replacement had a small crack in the neck going up on the right side. It wasn't all the way through yet, so I had it welded.

stump up is starting off with a positive reputation.
I have a 60' f100 with what I believe to be a 223. I ordered rod and main bearings and the rod bearings are 1" wide and wont fit into the crank journal. The original bearings are only 7/8" wide. fedmog prt#1830cp is the correct # for the 223. Am I missing something?

Why don't you call Green Sales Co to see if they have any NOS. They're not that expensive.

Resurrecting and old thread as this is my casting # as well. I just recieved some rod bearings, better check to see what I have. What about piston rings on these? Same? Sure hope so as I just got a set of them too.
