It's not a 428................

It's a 427 medium riser! The "so called" 428 that I traded a 360 for last week turned out to be a 427 Medium Riser out of a 1966 cop car! Needless to say I'm VERY happy......

SCORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, I need....... And one of these.........and some of them........and maybe even those......... I'll trade this broken lawn mower for them, but, it ran last season. Never hit any rocks with it, except that big one over there (pointing over to the one that has pierced the bottom of the oil pan under a lifter off road vehicle). Just kidding.....That is some luck though. Did that guy even have a clue? Duh, stupid question, obviously not. The only thing better, would be a factory cammer motor.

Anybody need a flathead V8 from an early '50's F-1? Look on the Salem Craigslist auto parts.

Not sure that will work Fabmandelux, 332 and 352 were pre Edsel. I don't know what it stands for, I'm just curious , as for MEL, no clue.

Well that makes twice I've been wrong in my life, but I'm still not sure about the first time. Still don't understand tho, in '58 Ford had a 332 and 352 interceptor engines and no Edsels?
