1960 F350 with a 292. Engine HP

Plate in truck says 146 HP but everything else I read says 185hp for a 1960 292. I know it doesn't really matter but I am curios.

What are your thoughts.

Whats the fourth digit in your serial number.
According to my book 1960 292 2v==146hp
The only engines showing 180hp +- was the 332 and up

Engine code C = 292 2v 146hp @ 3800 rpm


That information is right out of Ford parts and accessories manual (on CD) you can pick them up on Ebay for about 20.00

Good luck in your quest

Yes i have that information. But i also have Eickman's YBlock book and it shows the 1960 292 as 185. Some other online sources show the 185 for 1960 trucks.

3414 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
The 185 might be for cars.

For the trucks, there are two ratings for each engine (three if you include "taxable horsepower").

For the 1960 trucks, the 292 MD (2 barrel carb), the truck operator's manual lists 172 hp @ 4000 rpm. This is "gross" hp. The number on the plate on the glovebox door (146 hp @ 3800 rpm) is a net hp, or what is available when the engine is installed in the truck with all accessories (air filter, generator, muffler, and so on). And the horsepower does vary with engine speed. The max torque of 270 lb-ft @2600 rpm gives 134 hp

Just for grins, the taxable (SAE) hp is listed as 44.60. Not related to power at all, but related to bore diameter and number of cylinders.

Thanks 3414, that actually clears the numbers up quite a bit. Now that my curiosity is settled, I can get back to the real task at hand which is unloading that dump body so I can put the truck into the garage and fix the brakes and sheet metal.
