Don't know a whole bunch of specs but it is an FE engine much like the 352 or 390. Different crank, rods or pistons (don't remember which) will make it a 390 (I think). They were used a lot in the F100's starting around 71-72. Pretty good engine as far as torque for a F100 but always heard they were very bad on gas mileage. All I know in 30 seconds or less. lol
The pistons in 360 engines are around 1/8" below the deck at TDC, and they have a very low compression ratio.
The best thing you can do with a 360 is swap a 390 crank and rods into one. This turns it into a 390 and brings the pistons right up to the deck at TDC. Absolutely everything else about these engines is the same. Both engines are internally (neutral) balanced, so the flywheel and harmonic balancer are the same. They even use the same aftermarket pistons.
Swap on a 750-800 Edelbrock carb, Performer RPM intake, small cam, and a set of headers with a good exhaust... and you're in business!
On the valve cover on the drivers side is a tag the gives the specs as a 360,btdc timing at 6 degrees,and a bunch on other crap i cant tell because theres paint over the other stuff but so far it says it is a ford 360.
there is no way to tell what the engine is by looking at it.You have to measure the stroke.I bought what i was told was a 390,the guy swore up and down it was a 390,so i bought.I didnt measure the stroke cause its a 390,WRONGThe way i found out it wasnt a 390 is that the pistons were marked360so i junked it.The 390 is a lot better engine than the 360.The 360 is a gas hog to
Now befor you dump it. My dad had a 68 F250 camper special with a 360 W/4spd.in it. It hauled a 4,000 lb overcab 10' camper pulling eather a boat or a 1947 cj5 for over 20 yrs with no probleum.. when it was time for a rebuild and the dealer pulled it apart it had pop top pistons and some other hp stuff.. they swapted in a different 360 motor and it was a dog so they had to fix it to make it right wound up makeing it a 408 to get the hp and tq up to where it was with the orginal motor.. So you might want to pop a head and look in side..
just my .02
A 360 basicly is 352 bored .050(4.050...same bore size as a 390). The 352 and the 360 share the same stroke,rod length, and piston compression height. Basicly all non high performance FE's are junk What I mean is they all have the same weaknesses and "needs". There is no reason to even worry about which one you have as far as 352(non HP) and 360's go if it needs a rebuild because you are going to replace everything anyways. The cost difference is so little that all 352 and 360's when being fully rebuilt should go to 390 crank rods and pistons. The only added expense is switching to the 390/410/427/428 rod length. Well worth it I might add. Factory FE Hi Po parts are rare and usually very expensive. It is usually cheaper to use all aftermarket stuff. Plain jane 4V intakes are still pretty easy to come by but 428 CJ/PI and 427 LR/MR intakes(which are the good factory ones) are tuffer to find. The 428 CJ cyl heads are the best factory upgrade for the 352/360/390 but again usually a hard to find and afford part. Edelbrock makes great intakes for the FE and nice aluminum cly heads if you can afford them.
