I know this is not within the 47 and earlier threads but interesting none the less. I have had 312 and 292's in various cars/trucks before but never heard of this.

I am pretty sure that is the Lincoln version. Pretty neat.

That is a Ford. It is a marine engine, for boats.

Interesting. I've seen them for sale on Craigslist before. I've also seen a building backup generator powered by a 292. They also used them in forklifts and log loaders. All kinds of applications. The water cooled exhausts are neat, although I've seen them used on backup generators that were actually inside the basement of a building.

Huh. With rams horn manifolds and straight pipes, I'd be kinda hopin' for a power outage now and then, just on general principles. I can hear the boss now, over the building PA "Whoever keeps pulling the main breaker, they need to knock it off. That's three times this week."

256 was a one year Mercury car engine.

I can't find any history of Mercury Marine offering this engine, and they say the stern drive setups started in 1961 and the earliest listing I can find is 1963.

Mercury cars and Mercury Marine are NOT related.

To make a 292 out of a 256 would take the stroke from 3.1" to 3.3" via the 292 crank. But the bore has to go from 3.625" to 3.75". .150" overbore? Maybe.

Probably a good runner, Maybe some interesting parts there.
