352 Engine

I was reading some of the links regarding what years of the 352 engines will fit in a '67 Ford Truck. Is it true that only 352s starting in 65 will fit in a 67? I currently have a 360 that burns a ton of oil, and I'd like to get the original sized engine that came with the vehicle.

i'm not sure exactly where the cutoff is- but the older FE engines have a different bolt pattern for the engine mounts. you can put a newer motor in an older car...but not an older motor in a newer car.

the cutoff is somewhere pre-65.

I have 67 camper special and it has stock FE 352. I pulled the engine for work and I replaced the mounts with stock replacements from LMC.

Mine is also a camper special, are you saying I could possible use an older 352 engine and get mount adapters through LCM? I found a 352 from a 62 Ford with 72,000 miles.

No, I wasn't trying to say that. After I reread your question I realized I didn't answer your question... I don't know the answer you're looking for. Good luck

If that is a 352 in a 62 Ford truck it is a transplant. 352 was not available in a 62 truck. What type of 62 is this motor in truck or car.

The FE was first introduced in 58 in the Edsel. The early engines used a different mount system, and I am not certain what year the change was made. All 65-76, 352s, 360s, & 390s are identical on the outside, all engine bays from 65-79 are darn near identical, so swapping any FE in those years shouldn't be a concern.

I would like to suggest that your engine isn't burning a ton of oil but rather leaking it. Valve covers and intake manifolds combined with the huge amount of air that is blown through there can leak a ton of oil.

Look under the truck at about the rear of the engine to see if it is all wet down there. I believe without seeing your truck that you have the ol blow out & down thang going on.

Bet the truck still runs good, right???

Jowilker: Yes the 360 does run well, and it has had that leak pattern behind the engine on the floor. Also when driving I have a nice cloud of blue smoke following me. If it is just leaking oil, what would you suggest for the fix?

I had a 390 out of a 64 Galaxie that didn't have the proper motor mount bosses, I had to make up an adaptor for the mounts. So I would say 65 or newer.

IIRC, "old" FEs are two-bolt, the latter FEs use three-bolt engine mounts.

What ya got?

The intake needs to be pulled and resealed, the valve covers need to be pulled, (blocked to be made flat around bolt holes) new gaskets installed and torqued to about 15 in. pounds.

Heck of a lot cheeper than replacing a good engine. IMHO

here's the info, cut/pasted from here:
FE INFO

Another change to watch out for is the engine mount bolt holes on pre-1965 “FE” blocks. Blocks before 1965 had two-bolt engine mounts while those from 1965 and later had three-bolt engine mounts. This isn’t a problem if you plan on using a 1965 and later block in a pre-1965 vehicle.

Problems abound when using a pre-1965 block in a post-1965 vehicle because some machining and drilling are required.



this thread has a picture of the old-style mount:
