226 I6 Accessories vs V8

I finally got a 3spd toploader trans for my '46 1/2 ton V8. The "problem" is that I had to buy it attached to a ('48) 226 (H) I6 :-) So I was wondering if the starter and the generator would work on a 59A V8? What about flywheel, clutch and pressure plate?

I am planning on trying to find a "buyer" for the I6 but like most people will probably eventually scrap it. Its pretty sad though, the motor seems to be complete except for the aircleaner (I spun the motor using the fan and belt about a 1/4 turn when I got home last night, so it even seems loose). Are there any other parts that the I6 guys (carb, intake, exhaust, trans adaptor and starter plate, head) would want me to save?

How much would you be wanting for the carb? I have one of those engines in my truck now. And its running, roughly but it runs.

Too bad you don't live closer -- you could get the whole thing cheap and get lots of parts. I will PM you about the carb, but I was hoping to try to keep it as complete as possible for now as I put it up for sale. But I suppose I should take offers to buy parts seriously right now.

Still wondering though about the compatibility of the '48 I6 generator and starter on the '46 V8? Thanks guys.

Do you know if the Model G & H exhaust manifold are the same? I'm in need of a 226 Model G exhaust manifold. Mine has a hole in it.

Where are you at in MN.? I have a 226H in a 1952 Ford 8N tractor that needs rebuilt and was thinking about finding another, rebuilding it and then swapping the old for new. Also by chance can you send pictures> Thanks for you time.

I really am sorry, but I don't really know about any swaps between the H and G. I am really new to flatheads myself and still have a lot to learn, what I know so far is what is available for reading. The only things I have found out so far are simiarities between the V8 and the bigger M motor. It seems that the starter is the same as the V8 and that the generator is likely the same as the '49-'53 V8. I also found out that the wire holding the glass onto the fuel pump is the same as the '49 -'53 V8 (after I gave it away).

As far as the H 226 and M 254, it seems like the blocks were very similar. I have one fellow that wants to buy my H head for his M block, says that it will bolt right on and raise the compression ratio (which makes sense when you think that Ford increased the chamber volume in the Mercs to reduce the compression caused by the longer stroke). I have seen written on other posts here that the H exhaust will bolt right onto the M (so I suppose the intake will also, but I have read that the M carb has a 1/8" larger bore and bolt spacing, suggesting that the H intake and carb will not breath as well for the M).

The only thing that I know for sure about the G motor is that they likely used the same bolt pattern on the back of the motor for the adaptor ring. So the adaptor ring I have will allow one to bolt the V8 trans to a G motor, or at least that's the theory behind it.

As far as my 6 cyl goes. I listed it for sale in several places, about a month ago and got no offers but I got a lot of requests for parts (and now interest in the complete motor ;-)

Please keep comments coming on interchangablilty of parts between motors. What I have found out so far has been really interesting.

Thanks everyone.

51ford,

Do you still have the 226 manifold?
