352 versus 352 360hp

I have my 352 engine on ebay right now. I am rebuilding a 390 that is going in it's place. I have had a couple of guys ask me if it was the 360hp version. I had assumed it isn't, but how would you check for sure?

One person mentioned the 360 hp having solid lifters. Any other clues?

Mr. Cook probably knows for sure, but I believe that 360 HP version is relatively rare. Maybe a police engine?

There were some 360 HP Police versions - 4BBl aluminum intake, solid lifters, I think about 10.75 to 1. Blocks were marked with a large cast X on the back and the oil galleys in the back were not drilled.....Hope that helps.

I believe the large cast X is in many of the 352 blocks, but the non drilled oil galleys were better suspects.

If I recall correctly, a 360HP 352 will have solid lifters, aluminum 4 barrel intake, shorty cast iron headers, and heads with heart shaped chambers with the intake seats & valves ground on a 30 degree angle instead of 45 to improve flow. I had a set of the HP heads a few years back, they were sweet.

352 versus 352 360hp

Way back in ancient history (1960), I was at a dragstrip in NY state one Sunday afternoon. (Place was so popular, they ran four cars at a clip.)

Most cars were Chevys, but there were two 1960 Ford galaxies with the 352/360, one was a red convertible, and the other was a base 2 dr sedan.

Well, the guy in the comvert had elected to write all crazy things on his car like "built by Ford to beat Chevy" (you get the idea.) The base car was just a sleeper.

The convert got beat by a Chevy, and as he came down the return road, some idiots in the crowd threw Coke bottles at him.

But, the base car did real good, until he missed a column shift and got knicked at the end.

Ford got some dragstrip respect that afternoon.

for an engine that no body cares about, 352's sure cost ALOT! even for a basic rebuild. stock head bols cost me over $130 because...

call to parts store in calgary

Them- "We dont stock 352 head bolts"
Me- "Ummmm, got any 390, 428?"
Them- "ummmm, Let me look!"
them- "Yea! we do!"
Me- "Yeaaaa, its the same thing... howmuch they cost?"
Them- "about $12 each" (i cant remeber the exact price, was a wile ago)
Me- "Holey F*... Send em my way"
Them- "The boxes have 4 more bolts then you need, you get the whole box"
Me- "WTF?"
Them- "Thats the way it is"
Me- "......... Send em...."

Definitely look for it to be an original aluminum 4V intake and solid lifters... As for the X, like said earlier it was in many of the 352 and 390 motors....
