I'm looking for an intake manifold from a '57 - '63 302, 332 cu in engine that used the Holley 4150 carb. Anyone that wants to sell one or know where on might be at let me know, please.
I am Elgin Boy. I am looking for a 302/332 HD Y Block steel crank for my 368. I also understand the intake off the 302 / 332 has a higher profile, unlike the 4 barrel manifold on my 368 which resembles a squished spider. (NO Performance). I would be interested in buying a 4 barrel manifold if what I am saying is true about the higher profile for the carb mounting than on the stock 368. Any help out there would be appreciated. Thank you.
I've been looking for one of these manifolds for months and haven't found one. Be sure and get the heads too if you find an engine. The heads are steel reinforced and have special valves. The crank is forged steel so get all three.
I got a 4GC Rochester carb from a '65 Chevy 327 and used a TransDapt adapter which fits my '53 Lincoln OK without any clearance issues so I don't have to use a carb riser. The problem was I didn't have the original carb (Junk Holley) with my car. I couldn't find a Carter WCFB from a '56 or '57 Lincoln either. Right now I'm not interested in getting more performance out of my engine so everything should work OK.
Thank you for your input. I am not sure about the 332 heads but the heads I have on my 368 were better than the previous Y block heads for different reasons ...valve size better rocker assy, etc. Maybe best is to try to get a 332 engine out of a F7or F8. I am not sure but they may have had a solid lifter cam that could be reground for more duration. Like you said this stuff is nowhere to be found.
Cam duration and rocker arm lift were designed much different than the Lincoln passenger cars. Also I think the cams may have rotated in the opposite direction than the car engines. Heads, manifold and crank would fit the car engines OK.
There probably was some hi perf stuff around for the Mercury Marauder. Some had 2 4's from the factory. Last time I saw one for sale it was $3,000 on e-bay. Seems like there were some 3 2bbl setups available too back in the day but I haven't seen one anytime lately. Trying to do anything with these cars is expensive. Only reason I'm doing it is there's probably not more than 50 cars left like the one I have.
