I'm in the process of putting in an early C...sler hemi with a Warner T-85/R-11 three speed OD transmission in my '59 F100 4x4. It has the stock Spicer 24 T-case and 9" rear, but with 4.11 gears. So far, so good. There's a lot of room in the engine compartment, although I'll probably wish for power steering at some point. Another thing on my "hopefull" list is a fiberglass hood like the one from U.S. Body Parts, in Florida. Anyone have any experience with their parts? I'm also shortening the frame 8" to take a 6-1/2' stepside bed.

I have a 70 something 360 which was rebuilt to a 390. A c6 auto trans.
The engine still has the stock 2bbl carb - has plenty of juice.
What kind of headers are you guys using to fit with a stock front end axel etc???

Headers are something I have been wondering about to. I will be looking for some big block headers that will work with a M II clipped 51 F1 as well. If anyone has bought any they really like I would appreciate any info.

Answers to other engine questions below.

*A look at the dyno sheet or at least a list of the hp and tq numbers in 500 rpm increments from 1000 rpm to 5000.

"The numbers start @ 3000 & stop @ 4600 on the print out."
RPM SF-TQ SF-HP
3000 397.7 237.6
3500 397.8 264.6
4000 381.9 288.8
4500 351.4 297.7

*Why they opted for the 6.3 rod (stock 300 is 6.2097"), instead of going directly for the 240 rod (6.7947"), which would have given a more desirable rod ratio.

Rod Angle was @ criticle.

*Is there any flow data for the ported head?

NO, Not Available

*Were stock valve sizes used?

NO, Oversize Swirl Pattern S.S.

*What brand pistons were used, if possible what was the part number?

Ross custom made.

*How was the camshaft installed: straight up, advanced or retarded?

2* advanced

*Was the crank offset ground? If so, what is the final stroke of the crank?

NO, 20/1000s under 4" arm as is.

600hp??? Assuming you've ridden in a vehicle with this much power, you know how hard that is to control in a short wheelbase vehicle. A friend had a speed shop build a 540hp bigblock for his '71 2WD pickup, and my rides in that consisted of wondering how he was ever going to keep that thing on the road, and it was a longer wheelbase pickup with the 8' bed. Just something to keep in mind, it's very hard to control with that much power when combined with terrible weight distribution and a short wheel base. (but it can be fun trying, as long as you don't pile it up)

Big Block

I am running a 351-c, c-6 tranny in my 56. My buddy had a 289 in his 55 and it looks so small when the hood is open.

Im running a Ford Racing 460 crate engine and a race built c6. The engine has the new John Kaase aluminum SCJ heads and makes 550hp and 545 ft lbs of torque. I have a Fatbar 4link with a 9" and 3.89 gears with a detroit locker. You can see all my pics in my gallery.
I just need a better torque converter and an 850 double pumper carb and I will be deep in the 11s. Runs mid 12s with stock TC and 750 carb now so its still great fun.
