300-6 drawings

Post #1 by Zephyr » Sat Jan 12, 2019 1:47 pm

I need engineering drawings for the 300-6. Considering installing one in our 1940 Lincoln Zephyr to replace the
V-12. Want to assure that the 6 will fit without any major chassis modifications. Any help will be appreciated.

The 300 engine is 14" from the oil pan rail on the bottom of the block to the valve cover rail on the top of the head.
The valve cover is 3" high not counting the breather cap.
There are 2 oil pans, rear sump and middle sump.
The rear sump is 9 inches deep, 9.5" if you want to include the drain plug hump and 4" deep in the front.
It slopes down from 4" in the front to 5.5" just before the rear sump

That adds up to 26.5" rear and 21" front without the breather cap.

From "sandboxer"
Crank is 31 1/2” long
Engine block is 28 9/16”

Drawing for the industrial version of the 300-6, the CSG-649. This drawing shows a front engine mount.

Not to argue against a six, but is the Zephyr V12 gone or damaged or what? Those v12s are SWEET! Gonna be singing Hot Rod Lincoln all day now lol
1985 Bronco. 309ci I6, NP435, 4.56 gears, Detroit locker and tru-trac, 4" lift, and 37" swamper tires. The 309 is 9.75:1 CR with a Schneider 140H cam, 4bbl, roller rockers, larger valves, and headers.

Personal vote would be for the V12 with twin turbos (definitely intercooled), for more low RPM grunt & a totally unique appearance. Weak point might be the trans, but there are plenty of adapters available to utilize later manual or automatic gearboxes to update things. Zoom-zoom!

Flathead V8s were prone to overheating largely due to the center cylinders exhaust ports being routed through the cooling jackets. I suspect the V12s may have suffered from the same flaw. So low levels of boost may be OK, like 3-6 psi. Maybe a period correct McCullough blower might look sweet and not create overheating issues.
I'd go with a later (Flat-O-matic C4?) trans too.
