Sorry to revive something so old but the 6.8 rods that are being referred to are they BBC rods? And what king of compression can be expected on a 4.6 stroke 570 or 572 mach1morgan described with say a dove-c head

No worries. Love old threads. That combo with 76cc Dove heads and flat tops will make slightly over 14 to 1 compression. Getting the compression ratio down below 10.75 to 1 for pump gas or boost is actually really difficult. It requires a 30cc dish.

Iíve been up all night and Iím getting warmer
looks like a good thread to light up
Some of you goofballs are down the lane that Iím looking for, Crazy that is
Now Iím not trying to be a smartass, Iím just poking at you all because itís been almost 10 years and I mean no harm
I basically know little about car engines, outside of I hate oil and grease and these all have some of each, but I like being around people that will try anything to see how far they can go
Iím wondering if itís still as easy to get under your skins, as when this crap was flying during this posting, shoot you know what im saying, one smart guy passes on that forgot more, than most will ever know, and two dummies try to fill his space
Enough said, so here is where Iím at, and Iím betting everyone one of the COOL cats above have the correct knowledge I need, bull ****ters and story tellers need not reply, so as to confuse me
I have been putting together some custom cars and trucks for a few years since retiring, from basic scrap that Iíve dug out of the ground with a shovel in neighboring farmers fields here in Iowa, and putting them on later model crown Vic p71 cop car chassis and just having fun, making something from nothing without breaking my bank
One of the digs netted me an original 63-1/2 galaxie 500 390 4 speed coupe that was special ordered just shortly before he was drafted and sent to Vietnam along with 8 ford pickups from 46 to 63, all laying on the chassis
David was fortunate to make it home alive but not the same as when he left as a kid and he just left the galaxie sitting for almost 50 where it had been parked
We became pretty good friends, crap it took me almost a month to get them rolling and moved to a friends farm about 10 miles away that had only met him shortly before talking me into buying them all which was the condition to get the one I really wanted
Thanks, buddy, but not so much this time for talking me into putting the galaxie body on an asphalt full perimeter stock car chassis that has totally screwed me up because it put me out of my zone
Iíve repaired and built a lot of collision damaged salvage vehicles over the years but never had to redesign a complete off set chassis and suspension that is built to go left only at speeds of 150 mph or more, nothing is plumb, level or square
I built a jig for the chassis, and now it is square with a 16Ē longer wheelbase, redesigned hand fabricated spindles from the original off cambered ones, and I have an early 70ís 429 C6 stuffed in a small block hole and I have to run an external wet or dry sump system thatís going to be around 4 grand over the counter and everyone I know has no ford know how
Iíve been unable to find any ford big block oil specs, about 90 percent Chevy and the rest small block Ford
There are a lot of used sump parts locally, but I canít take a chance on miscalculation of a pump from another engine and ruin the only one I have like this
if any of you can help, or steer me to someone that can, I would be in you debt, Randy

Welcome to FTE

Serving suggestions:

--Start your own thread in the 385 series engine forums.

--Get to the point, the story is good, but...

--Punctuation and paragraphs and brevity are your friends.

Engine Tech - 460 Ford Forum

Seems like the dry sump for the BBF is a bit hard to find. As you note, expensive as well.

If that motor won't fit in the chassis without a fight, sell it and put in a 351W. Yet another serving suggestion.

Good luck!
