Re: Lincoln 368 Y Block

be happy to help out with your Lincoln Y questions. On a PVC, use the hole in the block as an oil fill tube and an air intake, somewhere on the back of the valley pan put a hole for a PCV grommet and run it to some type of vacuum source on the intake. I might have an original road draft tube/oil fil...

Re: A shock...2018 Engine Masters thread

Anybody got any communication other than a request to pay up on entry fees? 5 weeks to go and everything is up in the air.. Anybody want to lay odds that it gets cancelled?

Re: Air flow vs compression

The simple answer is there is no simple answer.. IMHO it depends on what you are starting out with, and where you want to go. If you have an 8.0 to 1 351M Ford then adding a couple points of compression, spending your 1k on a set of pistons and rings might be the best route.. If you have a modest to...

I have some ported stock heads that will flow about about 300 intake and 220 exhaust.. The cam core is unique to a MEL

Kaase/Brechler EMC 473 MEL: Additional results

After the completion Jon mentioned that he thought with a bigger cam there was a lot more horsepower to be had. I was all for finding out, so the cam was sent back to Comp for a regrind. While Jon had the heads off he flowed them: 380 int 300 ex @.575 lift Attached is the dyno sheet from yesterday. ...

Re: Jon Kaase

I need to push back a little to the notion that the winning engines are just a result of spending more money. In the case of Jon's and my MEL effort, It had the same high quality parts as all the other engines when it comes to pistons rods crank etc.. The winning edge came from the creativity and sk...

Re: Jon Kaase

Moved the valves away from the cylinder walls more centered in the bore.. Gave the port a better short turn and created a modern shallow heart shape combustion chamber instead of the stock wedge

Re: Jon Kaase

Yes the early Lincoln Y Block has conventional vertical paired intake ports.. The Ford iron y block head is a quite good piece even given the unconventional layout. A Lincoln Y head is only capable if 10-15 cfm more flow even though the ports are physically bigger. It was a real pleasure partnering ...

Re: Ford MEL engine? Whaaaaaaaaaa???

57 TC engine is a Y block 58 is a MEL.. Easiest would be to replace what you have.. That engine bay looks huge, but look at a 61 Lincoln engine compartment with engine installed... not a lot of daylight there. There are plenty of rusty Lincolns out there that run. I would search for an original.. Li...
