You guys mention siamesed cylinders, but it depends how much they "overlap" over each other (how much they interfear). Chrysler 2.2 and 2.5s had siamesed cylinders and I've known people who got...

I'd give the 250 the torque edge over the 240, not trying to argue though.

I would have thought the 250 would pull better than the 300 based 240 being it has a longer stroke. I had a FE powered pickup I bought new in 68 and drove it until a few years ago when rust finally...

No, I've had a few 240 and 300s. This is a 250 with the intake cast on the head. It's a "tall block" 200 with a real long stroke. Almost what the 300 stroke is. Engine came out of a Torino, I helped...

I've spoke to several RV owners through the years and they all told me the same thing, the 454s ran hot and from their experience the 460 Fords did not. Brother in law had a 78 van cutaway with a...
