300 crank

Post #1 by Ford1946 » Wed Sep 09, 2020 4:30 pm

Hello All
I have just started my engine project, which probably will take some years, but I enjoy beeing in the garage building an engine and slowly see it come together. I have 3 of the 240 type and all of them are from the 60:s (65 - 67). I have read in this forum about all kind of things and one of them is a 300 crank, early connecting rods from a 240 and another type of piston, which should be a popular combination. There is a small issue with this. I cannot find a 300 crank here in Sweden. All engines seams to be of the 240 type. I do not say that there is a problem with the 240, it is just that I want a 300. I will put it in my 46 Business Coupe and it is just the knowledge when I drive that I have something that no other have. Not a race engine, just something a little bit higher in torque and hp. Will try to port some in the head. I have three so I can use the worst one for practice. There will be cam, rocker arm and a lot of other things, but I will ask about all that in later topics.

My question, for this time is, do you know who I should contact to get me a 300 crank? I do not have one to send in return, which I have seen that some companies want.

Ford New Holland, dealers or owners have the 300 on many of their agricultural machines.it's a good place to begin looking. Secondly look at
Forklifts from a certain era
And ford industrial power. This would be generators, pumps and the like

I have several 300 crank cores, but they will all need work in some form or another. At the very least they have surface rust, but the price is free. I am not willing to ship them out of the country but will give one to a representative of you here in the states.

You cannot put together an engine using a 300 crank and 240 rods unless you use custom made pistons.

Hey guys , he is posting from Sweden remember. Freight and possibly damage due to salt air would make a stateside buy, incredibly expensive

I know that I have to have other pistons. The piston pin has to be higher up. I have read in some topics about it and if I have to buy new pistons then why not buy the other types. I Think it was from a Ford 331 or 347 stroker something like that. A longer rod and a longer crank gives too long total length if I use the same piston. I Think I did see some at Summit or perhaps some other internet side. Internet is great for shopping without buying, just look and Dream.
