Thanks for all the encouraging comments! If you'd like to keep up with the 1963 Ford Falcon Wagon build, check out all the stories here: http://www.myrideisme.com/Blog/tag/63-ford-falcon-project/
http://www.MyRideisMe.com builds a six cylinder Ford engine, step by step. With guidance from my pops, a retired Ford mechanic, he shows me how, then I give it my best shot, not always successful the first time, I hope everyone interested in building their own engine can learn a little something.
Cobra Engine Build Part 1
This will be the first in a series on the engine build for my Cobra. This
is a 351W bored 0.030" with a 408 stroker crank. The intake was converted
to fuel injection and featured in a previous video. I will list components
as much as I can.
How to build HORSEPOWER - Ford 461ci Windsor V8 by Dandy Engines
Engine specialists Dandy Engines building a small block Windsor 461ci
stroker for Pat Staplton. Follow the engine assembly as the guys aim to
make more than 820hp naturally aspirated on regular pump unleaded 98-RON.
Pat plans on putting this brute of an engine into a Ford Falcon XD/XF Ute.

Blueprint 106 - Cylinder Bore Inspection
We're close to the end of the 100-level series. In this video I show you
how to measure the cylinder bores using 2 different tools. I compare the
results and illustrate what to look for to determine whether or not your
engine is in-spec.
The block I'm using is a 6-bolt turbo
4g63 from early '92. It has 150,000 miles and this video also serves as a
testimony for the durability of Mitsubishi's cast-iron solid-decked Sirius
I engines. This engine will be cut for a new set of pistons, so these
measurements are needed to determine what size pistons I need to get.
.030" is as far overbored as you should ever take a 4g63. Boring larger
than that will take too much off the side clearances between the cylinder
walls and result in compromised strength from hot spots. The only time
you'll ever need to cut a bigger hole is when an imperfection prevents you
from using the pistons you have, or if you're changing to a larger piston.
If you cut the block to its service limit, you have no room to fix an
imperfection should one develop... so it's best to cut as little as you can
get away with. Boring a cylinder .020" over does not significantly
increase its displacement.
Hot Rod 292 six cylinder
This engine was a collaboration between my dad and his cousin. It's a 292,
.030 over. It's been balanced. It's got JE forged pistons that puts it at
about 10.5:1 compression. It has an Engle cam with 231 @ .050 duration and
.565 lift. The head is a lump port head by Self with Ferrea 1.94/1.6
valves, K-Motion springs, Bill Smith pushrods, and Harland Sharp 1.75
roller rockers. The oil pan is a Hamburger aluminum pan, and the timing
cover is a Frank pattern finned aluminum unit, and it has a custom made ATI
Super Dampner and aluminum Fidenza flywheel. The intake manifold is a
Clifford 4 barrel, with a 2" Super Sucker and currently has a Holley 750
carb on it., This is going in a '37 Ford pickup with a Richmond 5 speed
