Okay after researching the web I found out a little about the FE engine. I know now what the "FE" stands for . Ford/Edsel engines are what ford used in their light duty trucks. My question now is it worth the time , energy and$$ to rebuild one? I'm not after huge HP but would not mind a little extra get and go. Any thought on what direction I should go?
Great motors but pricey to rebuild compared to 289/302/351w
truck is already set up for the FE better to leave it and rebuild , swapping in a SBF will end up same money just spent on different parts (trans ,perches,driveshaft....etc)

I've built a 360 with good results, it was just a gas hog so I went diesel instead.
Cast iron S code 4BBL intake, dual exhausts, Delta mid-range torque grind cam, and advanced the cam timing 4*. A Holley 4160 600cfm carb, DSII conversion, and a few other minor tweaks rounded out the build. That thing was great, it did 65-70 down the freeway with 9k behind it with room for more, it just topped out at 12mpg. I had about $1200 into the engine plus my time.
