428 PI Stroker build

Here is a start to my 428 PI stroker build for my 64 Gal fastback.Original Low riser intake,2-600 Holley carbs.I chose to be different on the air cleaner choice,a lot of people go the oval dual quad air cleaner,but I chose this set up.The block is .40 over and with one cylinder slightly scarred so I hope no more boring is needed.I'm going with a 4.25 Scat crank and my biggest problem is deciding on a hyd. roller cam or flat tappet. I'm leaning to flat tappet due to budget. This build is for the street and maybe an occasional trip to the strip. More pics to come....

Re: 428 PI Stroker build

Just one comment. If those are the cleaners that use foam as a filter, they are fire hazards.

Re: 428 PI Stroker build

Isn't a paper filter a fire hazard also K?

No, as most (of the non-CHI-COM variety) are treated.

I am just saying they make one hell of a mess and are hard as hell to clean out of a carburetor.

Use dualing open element K&N's if you want performance and appearance.

I should have just kept my mouth shut.

OH GAWD. I hear DANIELLE pecking now...

Re: 428 PI Stroker build

I was going to say the same thing about the air cleaners. They don't belong any anything that ever gets started.

The motor is looking great. I'm looking forward to hearing the final results after install.

Re: 428 PI Stroker build

You guys are absolutely right about those air cleaners. I let a friend talk me into them,but I have a dual quad oval air cleaner lined up AND a 428 badge for the air cleaner too ! Those 428 metal badges are hard to find,I could use one more if you know anyone who has one.
Hopefully the engine will be ready to put in by the weekend.My only concern is the drive shaft length. My 64 Gal came with a Richmond super t-10 tranny and I am putting in a 390 4 speed top loader out of a 65 Galaxie and I haven't measured to see how much difference there is.

I have a scatter shield that I can use from the T-10 or should I just use the bell housing I have ?? I'm just street driving with a little horse play now and then. LOL

What type of final engine appearance are you trying for? Do you want to use the OEM one piece cleaner or do you want two separate ones?

I'm up for either one , I like both looks. I'd like to look at the two separate cleaners behind door # 2 Monty !

Re: 428 PI Stroker build

My taste is mostly factory original or a very mild restomod thereof.



These cleaners were popular back in the early sixties. I don't know what style rocker covers you will be using. You could most likely source color keyed filters (blue - ACCELL).

Here is some more eye candy for you- Carl's Ford Parts

Like the car...

If I had the choice, it would be the scatter shield.

Re: 428 PI Stroker build

I hate it but I agree with K, I like the 60's air cleaners and You should use a scatter shield.

Re: 428 PI Stroker build

I'm torn between the OEM air cleaners that K posted ($175.00) or my buddy has an original oval air cleaner for $150.00 that I can put a 428 badge on.

I'll use the scatter shield off of the super T-10 if it fits,won't know that until we get it off. If you know anyone who needs a Richmond super t 10 with around 3500 miles on it ,I have one.

Those I showed were not OEM but STELLING & STELLING. Variations were used on the fifties 8V MERC. FORD used a variation of them on the 427 COBRA.

Just so you know. They were high class back when.

The oval aluminum cleaner will be correct for FORD HIPO of the period (1964).
