Re: 56' ford 223 I6, are there tranny adapters for this moto

Ford-y-block.com sells a 223 to C4 adapter for $650. http://www.willcap.com sells a Y-block to Chevy adapter that looks like it would fit a 223. Hope this help,

Re: 1964 Ford 262 fuel pump?

The 61-63 262s have no fuel pump lobe on the cam shaft because number 3 rod will hit it. Some 1964 models have a small lift offset lobe designed to clear the rod. Be sure to use the correct pump for interference reasons. 1964 full size Ford fleet vehicles also had 262 engines. I know of one cab comp...

Re: Narrowing down the build parameters on my 223.

I am glad to see you are going ahead with your 223 project. Here is my WAG on your projects. 1 The valves weigh about 110 grams and needs about 100 lbs of spring seat pressure to run a 255-270 degree duration cam@5500 rpm. The stock spring seat pressure is 75 lbs. Your cam grinder will put you on th...

Re: Narrowing down the build parameters on my 223.

I don't think your 1904 is going to make the kind of power your are after. I like carburetors with progressive secondaries for the street, 2 or 4 barrel design. If you mount one on a Clifford manifold, mount the carb with the primary venturis away from the engine. Clifford may have something else to...

Re: Narrowing down the build parameters on my 223.

Your little 223 makes 145 hp @ 4200 rpm and 212 lbs of torque @ 2400, not bad. The stock cylinder head will support over 200 hp. Do a 3 angle valve job 30-45-60 on intake and Exhaust. For all out air flow do a 30-37-45-60 intake. Never do a 75 cut to the intake bowl on these heads. I do a 38-45-blen...

Re: 262 rocker arms

I have run 223 rockers on a 262 and they work just fine. Lack of oil to the rocker arm assembly causes premature wear to the rockers and shaft. Cutting a grove on the number three cam journal will help supply a constant flow of oil to the rocker arm assembly. The extra oil helps cool the valve sprin...

WerbyFord
Thank you for the estimate, I think you are very close, but he is still sticking to the 7200. It sounds like a 200 hp 223 street build would be viable project.

Thanks again!!!

Re: 223 AIR FLOW NUMBERS

I like your numbers. We assumed similar performance numbers just bench racing with others, but we didn't have the Gonkulator. It would be nice to see some 223s competing in other forms of vintage racing. They are durable and respond well to modification. My racing partner campaigned a 53- 215 in the...

Re: 6 cyl oil pressure

Oil pressure doesn't usually go up on a worn engine. I would suspect something has gone wrong with the oil gauge or sending unit. Hook a manual gauge into the main oil passage and get a second opinion. 70-80 lbs. pressure is good for throwing extra oil on the cam and distributor gear, but not so goo...

Re: Valve seal size??

The .500 and .530 valve seals are for machined valve guides. You can get stock umbrella valve seals at any parts supplier. If your seals are worn, there is a good chance you need valve guides. The 223 suffers from a inadequate oil supply to the valve train assembly. Often valve spring loose tension ...

MY BAD. Use the 200 PCV valve and get the proper hose size, to match the valve and the carburetor. I would try a new PCV VALVE. It is not un common for the spring inside to break or loose tension. Carbon build up can also cause the valve to stick open and loose its seal. . If you still have a rough ...

Re: pcv or not pcv

PCV valves are sized for specific engines. Make sure you have a PCV valve for the 170 motor. PCV valves can flow to much or to little if the application is wrong, causing driveability problems.
