250 Engine Length?

Post #1 by GreasyNRusty » Mon Jun 03, 2019 3:19 pm

Kinda got the hots to build a 250...but the project I have in mind for it requires an inline four or a (yuck) 60-degree (puke) V-6 :tabu: .

The kit roadster was designed around a Ford 2300, which is approximately 23", front of single-groove crank pulley to bellhousing flange at back of block.

I'm wondering if someone could provide a similar length measurement, front of 3-groove crank pulley-to-bellhousing flange for a 250?

Thanks, Eddie

Well mine is off at the machine shop but if you can figure out how long a 200 is the 250 is about 1" longer due to the length of the water pump, I guess I am not much help there but someone will have exact specs I am sure.

The 200 and 250 are the same length however minus the accessories on the front.

See Ya,

Great Bloke is da man, aka gb500.

See this in viewtopic.php?f=1&t=77062&p=593124#p593124.

31.5 inches for the 250, 29.5 for the 200.

Australians had an intermediate 3.1 liter and 3.6 liter block 8.425" tall in 188 and 221 cubic inches, and a destroked 250 with a taller 9.38" block in 200 cubic inch form.

US and Australian 144, 170 and 200 had 7.830" or so tall blocks from the crank centerline to the base of the head face.

THANK YOU indeed!

No disrespect for the 2300, either! The 2300 motor was my first choice and then I missed on a sorta-virginal '73 pulled from a '73 Pinto in 1975 for installation in a Model A, then put into storage; the kid inherited it, and...

...The extra length measurements of both 200 and 250 sixes over the 2300 four are useful to me; there is a frame stretch involved, no big deal mechanically but the extra length has to added between firewall and radius rod and accounted for in a stretch of the hood sheet metal.

I am curious if the extra hood length (hood length per kit, 31.5"; 250 +8.5" or 200 +6.5", i.e., 40" or 38") would throw the proportions off; the car involved is a Speedway Motors Track-T "kit" car, seen here: https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Speedway ... ,4010.html.

Please look beyond that horrible wheel/tire combination :shockin: (or, for true masochism, imagine that exact car built with separate freestanding RECTANGULAR headlights :boom: I have blackmail pics from '85, the horror, the horror).

That is cool, are you going to be ok height wise? I guess the Pinto motor is fairly tall anyway with the overhead cam.

It is cool, I wonder why a modern kit car still uses '49-54 Chevy spindles?

Wheel height, type and size. The whole package was the base for the early Corvette.
