Rampside engine advice
Posted by: Trooper ()
Date: November 24, 2017 05:19PM

My F/C came with 2 engines. The one that's in it is hooked to a power glide block # T0414Y 60-63 manual 80hp and the extra in the bed #T0807YN 62-63 manual 98-102hp, head #3813516 62-63 102hp.

The power glide is staying.

I want a 140hp non turbo I think. Can I use one of my engines block, and build from there or should I find a 140 engine and rebuild it.

Thanks

Block can be used.... just a couple of places to be relieved for clearance... and a 164 ci ['64-9] cam must be used..

140 heads on an engine tied to a powerglide in most cases are only good for bragging rights, and that doesnt go very far. You end up with a sluggish combo off the line. Not saying it hasnt been done and cant be made to work right, but takes lots of effort. If that interested search here and read. IMHO put the effort into good 95 heads and a late 164 crank. An angle grinder with a sanding flapper disk will make short work of relieving the stock truck FC case for the longer throw crank.
