Thumbs up Any other 534 owners?

We have a forum for the orignal "Super Duty" Ford Engines now
I would like to hear from others that have/had one of these monster engines! I like the stories from the old (& not so old) timers about how my 534 cu in Super duty grain truck pulled 6 chev^^s out of the mud at one time, etc....

I just purchased a 1969 F1000 Dump with the 534 cu in. Don't have any stories to tell yet! As soon as I do...I will post it.

Thanks!!
AJ

Hi AJ,
My dad used to drive a 1960 F-1100 single axle custom cab with the 534 Super Duty. He had straight pipes on it, and man would that thing bark! He said it was a real flying machine as far as tractors went.

Wow, I'd like to see a picture of that 69 F-1000! Want to put up a gallery by any chance?

My grandpa was on the fire dept., and on the first trip out with the new truck, which had a 534, left dual rear wheel posi marks on the station floor, carrying a full 1000 gallons of water(8400 lbs) 6 men(960 lbs) all equipment(600+lbs) and full load of fuel. If that's not enough, it threw 2 guys off the back as he turned the corner. Before the next fire, needless to say, it had a governor on it.

This probably don't qualify. My dad had a 534 ford engine on our irrigation well for close to25 years. Just retired that motor a few years back. Must have had a zillion hours on it. Avalve went out on it. Those valves were adjustable on that particular engine, The thing I hated most about that engine was the oil filter. It was a canister type located by the engine pan. Kind of messy to change. You also had to tighten the filter up just right or it would leak. A pretty durable motor otherwise. I do believe the 460 we have on there now has way more power. The 534 produced most of its power at a lower R.P.M. than a 460.

We ran one on an irrigation well for years. We bought it to replace a 800 cu in Minneapolis Moline engine that was nothing but trouble. The 534 ran for about 10 years, just pulling it's guts out. After it started using quite a bit of oil (a gallon every 12 hours) we hooked a 390 onto the front of the crankshaft to help it and oil consumption went to nearly nothing. Sure looked funny, those 2 tied together, but it worked really well. Some neighbors who found the 534 wasn't enough power, tied 2 of them together, other turbocharged them. It's a tough engine but not too fuel efficient, therefore they are all gone now. Most guys have gone to that big ch**y and twinned them up. I did install one 534 in my C-800 single axle grain truck. It is huge but it puts out a lot of torque and will pull quite a load. The truck regularly grosses a weight of 42-44,000 lbs. and will just walk out of a soft field with that load. It's not a hot rod by any means, redline rpm is 3200. The valves are too small to let it wrap up much tighter. It's just a heavy truck motor.

The 460 was amuch better motor than the 534 for power and durability. Have two of those on my wells right now. Couldn,t be more happier. Never have seen two motors like that tied together takes some real coordination there.

Twinned motors isn't rocket science. Both have clutches, separate safety guages and I had starters on both engines of my setups. The trick was some means of tying the output shaft of the front to the harmonic balancer on the rear. We used a driveshaft about a foot long. The rear engine has to have a heavy crank snout. The 534 and 391 worked good on the rear, the 428 on the rear would break the crank right behind the balancer. I've seen twin 460s but I haven't ran them, so I don't know anything about longevity. I know where there's a pile of them, though.

You must have some deep wells in your area.

I must be young, dumb, or too close to the city. The only thing I've ever heard of are the tiny well pumps that you put in drinking water wells.

Irrigation wells to irrigate cropland. These well typically put out500+ gallons per minute and are as deep as the water table is. They take pretty good size motors to run these wells. Learn something hear all the time don't we. Hope this helps.
