i recently became a proud owner of a 60 2 door falcon wagon. i have been under the impression that the engine is a 144 according to the aircleaner. i had a bit of trouble finding a new pcv valve for it. in which i was told that my car should have a dump tube, instead of a pcv valve. also that the cylinder head is from a 200 because the throttle linkage does not sort of fit, causing the throttle to be stuck partly open. earlier this evening, i found online photos of the 144 and my engine does not even look close to it. so my question, is how can i tell exactly what i have.
Post some pics of it. I believe what you may have is a 240 i believe it is. Or it may be a 260 i cant remember. Back in the.60s.and early 70s.many of.these.cars were.changed from the.stock motor.to th WV e mustang straight 6. They.were easier to find and had nearly 45hp gain so instead of.speandimg.the.money.to rebuild the.144 or the 200 they were. swapped.i hope this.helps plus the.parts are.interchangeable
