I used to know where to find the number crunching for changing cubic inches to CC's, but I've lost it. (or brain farted it away).
In either case, what does 418 cubes come to in CC's?
(I'm thinking of making a custom plate for the side of the car).........


thanx in advance.

1cubic inch =16.4 cm3
418ci=6850cm3 or cc's give or take a couple.

For sure.......AT the local track here, I'd have even MORE DF's standing around looking at the car, saying WTF?


I think I'll start working on the 6.9 emblems today!
Thanks again, guys! You be da bestest!

Yes, Ford did use the 6.9 from 83 to 87. Unfortunately they (ford), didn't utilize any kind of decals/emblems whatsoever stating what size the engines were, just the fact that they were indeed diesels. Bummer.
I'll keep searching.
Tried searching for 4.6 emblems. figured I could cut 4 in half, turn the other 6's upside down and glue 'em together, but can't even find 4.6 emblems to trash........

Or you could have a local vinal sign place whip up some decals for you.

Decals just wouldn't have that 'factory' look to them.
I'll keep searching. Maybe GM or (gawk), dodge has something useable.

Well there is the 396. I think it would look kinda out of place if it was'nt the same font (is that the right word? style?) as the 5.0 badges.

Yeah, they'd be too small. (I still have a pair in the garage from the old brand x car).
I'll keep checking, tho.
thanx
