Re: ISO 393w crankshaft with 2.5" rod journals?
With the 268, it will have tons of low end power... and going in a heavy Galaxie with a tall gear, it could be exactly what you need! Compression might be a tad on the high side. Probably wouldn't hurt to polish the sharp edges off the pistons and combustion chamber.
Galaxie? I wish... just a junky Ford Maverick that I'm putting too much money into haha, but that's the life. I assume you're saying to polish the sharp edges due to hot spots? I've never done that and am nervous. What would I be looking for as far as being "too sharp"? Do I just need a nice radius on all the edges?
