My Dads' 272 Ford, which he has rebuilt with new cam, Weiand triple intake and 3 94's. The engine wasn't bolted down at all on the stand, so it couldn't rev too hard as it tipped a lot. Still needs headers and a later distributor with mechanical advance. Will be hooked to a 4-speed toplader.
Y-Block powered FED at Famoso Raceway
This is me (Tim McMaster) and my Y-Block Ford powered front engine gas
dragster Elwood. It's our first time running the 1320 at Famoso Raceway
just north of Bakersfield, CA in Oct. 2010. We did fairly well for our
first time out, the car ran great and had very few problems. All this on
my spare pickup engine.

FORD 292 Y-BLOCK ENGINE RUNNING AFTER 35 YEARS IN BRAZIL
Funcionamento de um motor Ford "Y" block 292, retirado de um antigo
caminhão F-600. o motor estava parado há 35 anos, em uma granja no
interior de São Luiz Gonzaga/RS, de onde saiu para vir a equipar em breve
uma Ford F-100 ano 1960..
O engenheiro agrônomo Luis Fernando Graeff, antes de ligar, trocou óleo e
filtro, instalou uma bobina, lixou o platinado, e instalou um carburador
DFV 444 usado no lugar do original, que precisa de reparos. Feito isso,
bastou recolocar motor de arranque e bateria e fazer o motor funcionar!!!!!
Cabe salientar que após esquentar, ficou insuportável o cheiro de urina
de ratos oriundo do velho bloco Y 292!!!
