Re: Nice local 427 Powered 65 F250

Did not say it was not worth it, just saying what it is. It is a top oiler, why? Cause side oiler was introduced in 1965, anything before is top oiler. A top oiler has oil passage under the cam oiling the top of engine before the bottom. A side oiler has oil passage that run on side oiling the crank and bearings first. Different is a top oiler will stand around 5500 rpms where a side oiler is on up there, a stronger engine.

As well a low riser cause it has the 6090-H heads , low risers, also heads came on some 390s. A low riser will accept a intake to match which the level on top of intake is all flat for the carbs. A 406 3 duce intake the back carb sits high, mid sits lower and front even lower like stair steps. All in all still a good deal. I think that truck if it runs is a fair price. Reason not sold though is it is a top oiler.

If it was mine I would pull the engine, sell seperate. Sell the trans. Sell the intake and carbs seperate. Sorty headers seperate and last through another engine and tranny in and sell that. Make more and I think I am correct in the above.

Well it IS a stepped intake but the carbs are level, the intake rises as it goes back.

The tranny is a run of the mill 4 speed granny low. Worth $300 bucks tops.

Top oil'er just like ALL other FE engines pretty much right? One head is the C3AE 6090G one head it the H C3AE6090H With two H's....

If I had $5K I'd offer it for the truck. and see what happens, but the kid thinks it's a $6K motor....

Re: Nice local 427 Powered 65 F250

It is the same engine as well date as the one I have below. Although mine has 406 heads, a few steps above H or G heads. Both blocks are cross bolts which a cross bolt still can bring 3500 at a low by itself. I gave 6000 for mine but brang new with no sleeves. You can put cobra jet heads on , add high rise but you have to have intake for hi riser heads and the engine will stand them. A cross bot is stronger than a 390 or a 406. Yes rebuilt alone that engine is worth 6 or so. With the truck and all I wish I had 7500, I would love to have it. That engine will still sit ya back in the seats. Truck looks a 66 and a 250 to boot. Right granny over drive sucks but can add a top loader easy. Make a nice truck with just very little work that will stomp the highway.

Re: Nice local 427 Powered 65 F250

Hey not saying the intake sucks. A t-bird intake and carbs, fuel log and linkage one can get 2500 for just that top set up. You look on ebay at what a t-bird set up is asking for it. You will see some will pay more. That stuff is getting harder to come by. I wish that truck was closer, I would give some cash and trade something along with it. Or sell a couple car trailers or something, good deal ya ask me.
