I'm looking for the critical dimensions of Ford engines; in this case, the SD engines, but any and all others as well.
Specifically, I want to get the dimensions for deck height (crankshaft centerline to cylinder head mating surface, measured along the mutual bore centerline of a bank of cylinders), connecting rod length (between bore centers), bore, stroke, bore spacing (between centers of adjacent bores), main and crankpin diameters, etc., etc.
Finding this stuff for relatively modern US-native Ford V8s (Windsor, 335/Cleveland, FE, 385/Lima) is not particularly difficult (though I would like much more info than I've currently got); however, I'm having a really hard time getting it for the MEL, SD, Lincoln and Ford Flatheads and other older engines.
