Post #1 by Tanman-67 » Sun Jun 10, 2018 3:24 pm

Hey guys, i have a 1962 ford f100 unibody with a 223 I-6. Im going to pull the motor out and bore it .60 over shave the head .60 over. Port and polish the head. Clifford 268 cam. Holley 4 barrel carb with clifford intake manifold and header. I may do a dui distributer. I am wondering how big of a lope the 268 cam will give me? I want this little 223 to be turning heads. I am also wonering if i need to do arp head studs for the higher compression or if arp even makes head studs for it. Thanks

The ARP Rod, Main, and Head bolts are available for the 223, so probally the Head studs are available too. You can see the ARP Head bolts in the below link of the 223 Performace build. Best bet is to contact ARP direct on what the part number is for studs that you would want. Good luck on your 223 build. It would also be a good idea to consider installing a set of the ARP Rod bolts too for your build up, and before you rebuild the rods. :thumbup: :nod:

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.
