Difference between industrial and truck engine

Post #1 by Monte97z » Sat May 11, 2019 4:12 pm

Hey guys quick question for you, I tried to search but could not seam to find a definite answer, sorry if I missed it. I was picking up a 300 from a guy for parts and he happened to mention the he had a friend with a new in crate Ford 300 industrial motor, he thought it was for a forklift, and asked if I was interested in it. Does anyone know if would work in the truck or even be worth trying to buy it? I did not discuss price with him on it yet. It would be for a 66 f 100 with a c4, I'm looking to do a build on in the near future.

It would probably work fine. It has lower compression ratio pistons - maybe 8.0:1 I think.
Make sure of the induction system. All kinds of manifolds were used on those things - natural gas, propane , gas with a governor, etc. You may have to upgrade. Likewise the exhaust may need upgrading. Good luck.

Ok sounds good. Thank you, was planning on a rebuild anyway, so I could always change the pistons to get the proper compression, at least I would know the rest of the rotating assembly would be good to go.
