Shows and Events / Re: Beaver Springs 2018 Fe Reunion
« Last post by Rory McNeil on Today at 03:23:18 am »
The 2018 FE Reunion was one of the best events I have ever been to. Weather was touch and go, with rain, but it got completed. Met lots or nice people, and saw plenty of great cars. First time I have ever been to the NorthEast, certainly won`t be the last time.In addition to the FE reunion, we went to 4 other area dragstrips (Atco,Numidia, Maple Grove and South Mountain), went to S&K Speed in New York, visited the AACA museum in Hershey PA, and the Simione Museum in Phillidelphia, toured G Force racing transmissions, and Ray Barton Racing Engines. Had an absolute blast!

General Discussion / Re: 428 Overbore

Each block will be different because of bore core shift. Some blocks are ok at .060 some not even close. Anything assembling .040 or larger would be wise to get a sonic map.

Go Canucks !

Today I bought a 70 428 Police interceptor (date coded 9M13) nicely wrapped up in a 1972 F250. The engine was installed back in the mid 70s when the owner had a mishap with the original 360 and distorted it. Now I need to find a lot of little parts.

Glad you found a block!  It's all those little parts that will get ya :-/

Up date on my Cougar CJ, I have found a set of CL heads that work with the build date of the Police interceptor. I picked up a service replacement 69 CJ Carburetor, A set of reproduction cast aluminium valve covers a set of headers and a number of small parts. The car's trunk is nearly full. I hope to get on to the floor replacement after the first of the year. Maybe I will have this on the road next summer. But more likely in the summer of 2020.

Very cool!  Going to be a sweet beast when you get it all sorted out :-)

Hi, is there an acceptable maximum overbore for a 428 block? How far can you safely go? Thanks

Correct and this one is a Ford. Merc vin numbers start with 5 or 6 or 8 depending on plant and model.
