Ford y block ECG3ECG3


Ford was always the most conservative of the major automakers, holding onto older designs far longer than GM or Chrysler. But market forces pushed Ford to develop new designs in the 1950s. The company had designed the Y-block for a 1953 introduction, but a shortage of nickel due to Korean war needs prevented the company from manufacturing the engine in sufficient quantities.
Ford introduced the first of the Y-block engines in 1954 on Ford cars and trucks. The engine displaced 239 cubic inches and made 139 horsepower and 193 pound-feet of torque. This represented a 25% improvement over the standard flathead from the previous year. Ford customers were enthusiastic about the new engine. Mercury customers received an uprated 256 cubic inch Y-block rated at 161 horsepower and 238 pound-feet of torque.
For 1955, Ford increased the displacement and made engines at both 272 and 292 cubic inches. The 272 made 162 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. All basic Ford products received this engine. The 292 engine gave Thunderbird and Mercury drivers 193 horsepower and 280 pound-feet. With this engine, the 1955 Thunderbird rocketed from zero to sixty in just 9.4 seconds.

I have Chevy 400 engine with Numbers: T3402CTA and GM330817. What year was the engine made and what horsepower? Tx


The block casting is a 72-80 2 bolt main,,,used mortec.com ,,,,,,,,,to find out what it came out in you will have to look at the front of the engine left side,,where the head bolts down,,, should be a 1.5" flat spot with numbers stamped in it,,,that will tell you,what it came out in and hp,,if the the block has not been decked that is,then it will be blank ,,go to a gm website and look for vin suffix codes,,there should be link to decode the numbers stamped in the block

What are the engine codes and what do they stand for? ie: Y= 400 C.I. engine,325 h.p.


What kind of Pontiac engine you have? Is it pre-80's? Pontiac engines have a 2 letter stamp on the front top passenger corner of the engine block. The year is usually next to the distributer hole, and the actual casting number is located on the top rear of block. Some sites offer casting number searches. A good one is wallaceracing.com. They deal with everything from block and cylinder head numbers. If the engine is 1970 or newer, engine size is casted behind the dipstick passenger side of block and also on the front driverside of block too. There are many different variations of codes to list. A example it the engine is made in 1967, casting number is 9786133, code on the right front of block says YE, then it's a 1967 400, that originally had a automatic transmission connected to it, had 10.5 to 1 compression, #066 camshaft, 143 or 061 cylinder heads, 4bbl carb, and 325 horsepower.

Restoring....get your bank account in order,lol.Smallblock Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth...273,318,340,360 are all of the "LA" family and have the distributor in the rear of the engine,close to the firewall.Bigblock V8's,361,383,400,426,440..all have the distributor in the front of the engine,on the passenger side,mounted at an angle.This is the easiest way to visually identify small block or big block.Back then,they didnt use Liters,only cubic inches.When i say 273,426..etc...that is the engine's cubic inch displacement.You can order a parts book for your car from Year One,they specialize in restoration parts,and the book also contains information on how to further identify and decipher many things about your particular car.Also contains factory horsepower ratings for individual engines.I have a 1973 Plymouth RoadRunner with a 360 putting out about 450 horsepower at the crankshaft.Mopar or no car.
