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.
Rebuilt Mercury 292 Y-Block Startup
First fire-up of my 292 Y-Block that my father and I spent a year rebuilding. The opening photos are a montage of how it's looked over the past 12 months.
The video doesn't include the bloopers, like the first battery that had no juice, the leaky water pump, or of course, last week's spark plug wire mixup.
- '57 Ford ECZ-C 292 block, bored .040" over
- '56 Mercury ECZ-C heads
- '57 ECZ-B four-barrel intake
- Edelbrock 1404 carb, 500cfm, manual choke
- Crossover pipe for test purposes, but once installed in my truck, the motor will have dual Exhaust with cherry bombs.
That metallic ringing sound you hear early in the video is the pulley on the generator hitting the case. The generator is just there for belt tension.
