I've read in a few places that the Licoln engine in my F-250 is making around 360hp, its a 69. This seems a little high to me, but I know before the emissions laws alot of engines made more HP then what seems normal. Does anyone have a book they can look for me in, or know a place where I can get one with specs on this engine? Thanks.
Prior to '72, car manufacturers advertised gross hp. Those numbers were taken from an engine with no emissions equipment, no accessories, open exhaust and carefully tuned. In '72 net hp became the standard, testing for hp with full emissions, full exhaust, and lower compression ratios. Big drop in advertised hp.
The online store here has several books that can provide you with full specs on that engine.
