292 rebuild

I got my block and crankshaft to the machine shop yesterday. Going to rebuild from the bottom up. They will provide and install the cam bearings. As soon as the machine shop gives me the final bore and crankshaft journal sizes I can order the pistons, rings and bearings.

Anybody have a good source with good prices on parts? I am leaning toward buying them from www.Ford-Y-Block.com website. Prices are pretty good compared to some of the catalogs I've seen and other online sites. Looking for cast pistons, moly rings, rod bearings, main bearings, rod bushings

I have a reground cam, rebuilt heads, new oil pump, timing set and a complete gasket set.

Getting closer to having the engine out of the machine shop. I was on vacation in CA and UT when my parts arrived. Gave the parts to the machine shop and they are going to check the pistons before the final honing of the cylinders for a good fit. The cylinders cleaned up at just .030 and the crank was turned .010/.010. I gave them the rods to replace the bushings in the small ends and check the big ends for wear or out of round. Gave them the cam to make sure cam bearings are a good fit. When they are finished I will bring everything back home for final assembly. Should have reground lifters back next week. They are the first part that has to go in the block for assembly.

When I get started on the assembly I will post pictures in my gallery.

Roger, sounds like fun. That's going to be a good looking pic when it's on the frame.

All right! I have my engine back and ready for assembly. I had the flywheel resurfaced and the pressure plate, flywheel and crankshaft balanced together. Also had new rod bushings installed and the rods resized. Total for the machine work was $595. Total for parts was $700. Getting the heads rebuilt was $375. Original cost of the engine was $160.

Just waiting for my reground lifters to come back and new block dowels. I did assemble the pistons to the rods this weekend. Due to the mushroom design of the lifters they have to go in the block first. I will take some pictures of the bare block and parts to start and place them in my gallery.

I have posted some pics in my gallery of the progress. I received my lifters today and started on the assembly. Just got the lifters and cam installed and checked the main bearing clearances tonite. Unfortunately I can't change the order of the pics in the gallery. When I added photos today they did not all stay in the order that I uploaded them.

Hey Rogerf100. Sorry I can't help you. But I do have a question that you might be able to help me with.

I have a 77 F-150 I am about 80% finished restoreing. I also have a 79 F-150 I haven't started on yet. I am going to pull the 351m out of my 77 and pull the 460 out of my 79 and put it in my 77. I have a set of 429 heads I need to have rebuilt. I was wondering if you know a good machine shop that is ford oriented?

Thank you.

I used 2 different shops for my 292. I took my heads to Cylinder Head Specialists on Reno in OKC. They did a great job with a pair of rusty old heads and the price was reasonable. They had to replace all valve seats and 3 valves. He understood that they were hard to find heads and needed to be rebuilt for my project. I used the heads from 1958 that have the large valves and high compression.

I used Folks Auto Machine Shop in Norman for the rest of the machine work. Again they have good prices and they take extra care. They will work with you and do just what you ask but will also recommend things you might not have thought about. I thought I would just have the block and crank work done, but they pointed out that I should bring in the flywheel and pressure plate so they could balance them with the crank. While the flywheel was in the shop I had them resurface it. The total was $595. Folks only takes cash or checks, no credit cards. Cylinder Head Specialists only takes cash.

Hope this helps.

Thanx for the help. I'll check them out in a couple of weeks when I'm ready to do my heads.
