Front Cover
CarTech Inc, Oct 15, 2015 - Transportation - 144 pages

If there is one thing Ford enthusiasts have learned over the years, deciphering which Ford parts work with which Ford engines is a far more difficult task than with many other engine families. Will Cleveland heads fit on my Windsor block? Can I build a stroker motor with factory parts? Can I gain compression by using older-model cylinder heads, and will it restrict flow? Is there a difference between Windsor 2-barrel and 4-barrel heads? These are just a few examples of common questions Ford fans have. These and many other questions are examined in this all-new update of a perennial best seller. 

Thoroughly researched and, unlike previous editions, now focused entirely on the small-block Windsor and Cleveland engine families, Ford Small Block Engine Parts Interchange includes critical information on Ford’s greatest small-block engines and goes into great detail on the highly desirable high-performance hardware produced throughout the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. By combining some of the best parts from various years, some great performance potential can be unlocked in ways Ford never offered to the general public. Following the advice in Ford Small-Block Engine Parts Interchange, these engine combinations can become reality. You will find valuable information on cranks, blocks, heads, cams, intakes, rods, pistons, and even accessories to guide you through your project. 

Author George Reid has once again done extensive research to accurately deliver a thorough and complete collection of Ford small-block information in this newly revised edition. Knowing what internal factory engine parts can be used across the wide range of production Ford power plants is invaluable to the hot rodder and swap meet/eBay shopper. Whether building a stroker Cleveland or a hopped-up Windsor, this book is an essential guide.
