292 Carb Question

I'm still new to FTE and really need some help with my '55 F100. I bought it with the oh, so reliable but incredibly boring 223. I recently picked up what I thought was a '57 272 long block as this would be a stock transplant. Turns out the engine is a '58 292 from a F100. I'm trying to keep it original - for now - and am picking up parts to finish the build. I'm stuck on the 2 barrel carb which is original equipment per the head casting #'s. Does anyone know the original part #'? Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you

If you are trying to stay original, the 55 F100 came with either a 223 six or a 256 Y-Block. Only a keen eyed F100 guy would be able to tell if you had a 256, 272, 292, or 312 though. It looks like in your picture you have the correct carb for your engine.
Make sure you get TRUCK exhaust manifolds (crossover) as cars wonít clear the steering box on the drivers side.
I donít see a distributor so Iíd recommend a 1957 to 1964 distro. They have both vacuum and centrifugal advances. Iíd also tell you that changing to the EZC-9425-B four barrel and a small 450 CFM Carb will make your ole 55 fun to drive.
55 F100 engines were painted yellow with Argent valve covers.

BJ, the Yblock in F100s in 1955 was still a 239. It had a few more horses than in 54. The bigger trucks did have bigger engines.

are we talking about the engine pictured on the stand? That engine is set up for a car application. Has car oil pan, front position dipstick and car front cover that will not accept a truck front mount.

Good catch Kevin!
Thanks Abe! Thought I read the 55s had the larger engine.

First, thank you all for the your time to send me multiple replies. They really help! From all I've read, the 256 was the available V8 in the US built '55 F100. The 272 was built in '55 but only for cars with the exception of trucks built in Canada. Per the VIN, mine was built in Kansas City, MO. Since the frame was the same for all F100's, I picked up what I thought was a rebuilt 272 long block to swap with the 223. I checked the block casting # and found out it was a 292. The casting #'s for the heads confirmed it was a 1958 292 built for a truck application. So my plan is to finish out the 292 build as a stock engine and swap out with the 223.

You're right on with the intake and carb in the picture. I learned that they are for a '55 272 - not the 292 which has bigger intake ports. So I found one on eBay that's on its' way. Summit or Speedway has a reman 2B carb that's OE for the correct intake.

In the spare parts I got with the engine, I have an extra oil pan with the pick up at the back vs front in the picture. GOOD CATCH! I hadn't gotten that far but was wondering how the engine mounts would work with the pan the way it is in the picture.

Here's my question - you reference the 'car front cover' that won't fit on the truck motor mount. Is the 'car front cover' also the timing chain cover? If so, I'll need to locate one.
Again, THANK YOU to all who responded and please keep those comments coming! They really help as I'm figuring out how to finish out the engine correctly and make the swap.

Yes the timing cover. The truck one accepts the front mount bracket which you will need and the v8 trucks use an additional frame cross member since the v8 is shorter that the 223
also the radiator bottom hose connection is on the opposite side for the v8

Wow! I didn't realize there was a difference in the cross member as well. Is this a bolt on to the frame that lets me mount the shorter V8? Also, any pointers on where to look for this? My parts list just keeps growing!! Thank you again.

Have you priced a new harmonic balancer in? Almost 300 bones. With shipping added in, it's probably there or near enough. Dayton 1199N, made by powerbond. Originals or used can be rebuilt by guys like Damperdudes and Damperdoctor, but any used or NOS is going to be junk by now. Just another one for the pile. I feel your pain only moreso. I paid good money for a "rebuilt" engine many years ago and ended up doing half of it myself eventually.

You're planning on dual exhaust with steel pac mufflers right? (Nod your head yes....)

Yeah, I just paid $250 for a new Power Bond harmonic balancer from summit. That hurt a bit but I figured it was worth the cost to get it right the first time. I'm finding the finish build is a pain without knowing some basics - like what cam is in it??? Would be nice to know. Guess I'll just wait to fire it up and see if it idles smooth - or lopes at 2500 rpm. I wish! Yes, duals are in the exhaust picture. I found a good set of original truck manifolds. Yeah, there's a crossover pipe but I'll figure out a way to fit 2 mufflers into the final version.

Thank you for the front and rear engine mount pictures. That gives me a lot to work with.

My timing chain cover casting # is EBV6059 G. I'm trying to find the correct part number for the 292 truck timing chain cover and also the front engine mount and cross member. Does anyone know where to find an online listing or parts book to buy that has part numbers? Or is there a website where this NOS/OEM is still available?

Thank you again to all for the messages and support. Very helpful!

Thanks for the pic. That looks so cool! I've read that the ram horns have a great sound. Some video I watched said the old F700 school buses were outfitted with them. Speedway has aftermarket's for $389. I may end up selling my truck crossover version on eBay and going the Speedway route. Thanks again for the pic's. Learning so much!
