In Ford Big-block Parts Interchange, Ford expert and historian George Reid covers these engines completely. Interchange and availability for all engine components are covered including cranks, rods, pistons, camshafts, engine blocks, intake and exhaust manifolds, carburetors, distributors, and more. But it's far more than just a list of numbers; Reid explains the differences between engines, and gives you tips on evaluating parts, deciding when to modify parts, and choosing when to go with factory parts and when to go with aftermarket ones. You'll find factory casting numbers (one of the few places you can find Ford casting numbers), an engine ID tag decoder, and specifications for engines and their parts. Expanding from the previous edition of High-Performance Ford Parts Interchange that covered both small-and big-block engines. This book cuts out the small-block information and devotes every page to the MEL, FE and 385 series big-blocks from Ford, which allows for more complete and extensive coverage. You'll see interchange information for each displacement, year, casting numbers (if you've looked, you know those are hard to find for Fords), and some specifications.This softbound book includes 409 black and white photos and charts and is in new condition.
