Ford Y Block Engines  How to Rebuild   Modify

As Ford’s follow-up to the famous flathead, the Y-block was Ford’s first overhead-valve V-8 and it established an impressive high-performance legacy, winning many races in NASCAR and setting records at the Bonneville Salt Flats. This venerable Ford engine, which powers classic Thunderbirds, Crown Victorias, Edsels, and other cars, is enjoying a performance renaissance. Many aftermarket parts, including heads, can turn a sedate Y-block into a powerhouse. The engine earned its name from its deep-skirt block design that looked like a “Y.” This stout engine was installed in millions of Ford cars from 1954 to 1962 and Ford trucks from 1952 to 1964. Author and Ford tech expert Charles Morris explains each critical aspect of rebuilding a stock 239-, 256-, 272-, 292-, and 312-ci Y-block and building a modified Y-block. He shows you how to identify components and conduct a thorough inspection so you select a sound block, heads, intake, and other components. He explains the specifics for obtaining high-quality machining work and verifying clearances. In addition, he delves into the intricacies of each step of the assembly process so you can rebuild a strong-running and reliable engine. Most important, Morris details the steps to effectively remedy the Y-block oiling problems. This is the book Ford Y-block owners and fans have been waiting for. It’s an indispensible guide for performing a professional-caliber rebuild and buildup of the Y-block.
