534 vital statistics?

I'm kinda curious about these things. Specifically, what are the bore&stroke, compression ratio, head design (plank or wedge), valve sizes, port sizes, basically anything anyone on here can come up with. I figure, the more we know, the more we can modify.

Wouldn't it be great to wake up one of these beasts? I can imagine it now:

Mr. Chevy: Hehe, I've got a 454 BBC in mine.

Mr. 534: Naa, my motor is bigger than yours.

Mr. Chevy: -gasp- What the...!!!

hehe

Here's the 534 specs for 1959........

SD (Super Duty)
534 Cu In. Displacement
Bore & Stroke.............4.50 x 4.20
Compression Ratio......7.5 to 1
Compression Pressure-(sea level @ cranking speed)...150 +/- 20
Taxable Horsepower......65.00
Brake Horsepower- (@ specified RPM).......277 @ 3400
Torque - (Foot-Pounds. @ Specified RPM).....490 @ 1800-2300
Firing Order.....1-5-4-8-6-3-7-2
Valve arrangement.......E-I-E-I-I-E-I-E
Engine Idle RPM.....475-500

The intake manifold is water heated to assist in vaporizing the incoming fuel charge. It has two seperate coolant passages, two thermostats, an air vent valve, and a coolant by-pass passage.
It also has one fuel inlet into each cylinder head. The right barrels of the carb feed Nos. 1,2,3 and 4 cylinders. The left barrels feed Nos. 5,6,7, and 8 cylinders.

Have many more specs (from valve guide bore dia. to connecting rod length, etc.). Let me know what you need.

Nobody has posted weight data for these engines yet, but I believe I saw somewhere years ago that they weigh in the neighborhood of 1000 pounds. Definitely not a transplant candidate.

Do you have the width and legnth specs too?
I'm pretty sure you'd be hard pressed to fit one in anything other than a heavy truck engine compartment.

I'm just trying to get a grasp on these engines. FE's I know like the back of my hand, ask me anything about them and I can rattle it off. But these, just like any different engine they're completely different. I wish someone made a book on them.

I dont know, maybe I should just get one and start measuring. Now where to put it...

Do you know what the compression height of the pistons is, the rod length, and the deck height? Also, are the heads a wedge or plank design, and what is the CC's on the adverage set of heads if they're wedge?

Edit: What I'm really trying to do is to see how hard it would be to modify one. You know, port the heads, get the compression ratio up, have a custom cam ground for it, make some custom headers, that kind of thing. Also, I'm trying to see if any parts (like pistons for example) will interchange from other engines. If I have the time, and the will, and the money someday, I may just build one. If for no other reason, than to do something completely different.

I just got my 69 F1000 yesterday. That engine is BIG. Runs GREAT!! It also came with some extra parts. I have a head, exhaust manifold, rocker arms and rails, alt, and some other misc parts. If I can remember, I will take a picture of each and post them here...so you can see exactly what things look like.

That head alone....must weight 100 lbs at least. The Exhaust manifold is really opened up compared to most that I have seen. I'll try to take those pictures tonight.

I would love to see you build one...just for the sake of something different.

Thanks
AJ

That engine is HUGE! About 8.8 Liters? Absurd!
You should most definitely heat one up!

I would like to. However, it wont be this year, my FE project is taking up most of my time, and college is taking up the rest. I would like to continue doing the research though.

Does any one out there know what years ford made the 534. As far as weight goes that 534 was a very heavy motor. What motor replaced the 534 when it was discontinued.

Looks like it came out some time in the 50's, and was dropped in the 80s. As far as what replaced it? By the time it was dropped, applications for engines of that power range had all switched to diesel. AFAIK, it was not replaced

I have never seen one of these engines. Could you show show the dimentions of other ford engines to help me reference the size of these beasts.

Also, what applications could these engines be found in? Only medium duty trucks and up?

One more thing, what trannys did these things come with and is the bellhousing specific to the engine? or will it interchange?

Thanks for your time

Oops, should have read the other thread about the bellhousing.

These engines were used for irrigation applications in my area. Lots of them sold for that purpose.
