Sherman Tank Engine

Hey i thought you motor swappers might get a kick out of this.
Click the image to open in full size.
somebody please, make it happen. lol

Article:
My rod project involves building up one of these engines and putting it in a 1984 Ford F350 cab / chassis donor truck... engine as built up is stock except for carburetion and ignition. The 2 Stromberg 2-bbls have been replaced by 3 Demon 4-bbls and the very weak WW2 era ignition has been replaced by 2 MSD distributors with 6AL controllers.

With the GAA, its tough to grasp just "how 'big' is 'big?'" Its bigger than (3) Chevy 350s, bigger than (2) Dodge V-10 rams plus an additional PT Cruiser 4, bigger than 2 1/2 Chrysler 426s, etc. If someone had a built-up Boss at 550 cubes, it would only be as big as one of the cylinder banks on the GAA. If somebody had a GM 502 crate motor, you could say, "another 48 cubic inches and you'd be half as big as my Ford." And all the power is right at the bottom end where its needed for street use. How about fuel economy? My trans has a 30% overdrive, and with a converter lockup, an add-on US Gear (0r Gearvendors) 22% overdrive, a 3.54 gearset in the Dana 70, and 265/75x16 tires, the truck will pull around 1080 rpms at 60 mph. I think 5-7 mpg is reasonable, which is in line with many other street rods, especially those with tunnel rams, blowers and / or gears.

Woooow... What does this thing weigh???
Gotta love an all-aluminum, 4 cam, 32 valve Ford engine with 1100 cubic inches!
Here's one running after first startup: YouTube - Sherman Tank Engine
and here is one in the Mustang, and it gives a good idea of how huge this thing is!

The engine was in use in some mil. stuff until maybe the 1970s. Some truck pullers use this engine.

It's got me thinking of what tank varaints there are for engines. Something for a tank, but smaller would be just as impressive, IMO.

Here's something you guys might get a kick out of. This is an M47 tank engine (air cooled) we added twin turbo chargers and fuel injection to for one of Jay Lenos's project cars. Total output is around 1600hp. Enjoy!
