lincon Yblock

Hi i have been racing Fords Mercs and Lincolns since high school and i am 58 years old , i have never seen a Power Pack 272 , but i have heard alot about them , such as the Heads are different in the intake passage and when ported they flow the best of all Yblock heads , i talked to a guy with Jack Chrismans Comet Funny car and he used these heads on his 57 Factory Blown 312 ford , He had to post them to keep headgaskets from blowing, he swore by these heads , Dont sell the 272 Yblock Short , we put a 312 intake with Afb carb on a 56 272 in a 54 sedan and beat a 64 comet cyclone with in in the 1/4 mile , There is a GOOD YBLOCK Club you can join for info , magazine and parts yblockmag@yahoo.com ph815 433 1393 . they are making single 4barrel allum intakes, water pumps and working on heads plus repop 57 312 blower brackets pullys ect , the only down side to the yblock ford is the Tshaped Soilid lifters , you have to pull the cam to get them out, i race the Linc Yblocks and they use a 390 FE lifter , hope this helps .

Gary covered most of it, but didn't mention the carb. You are looking at a 2bbl with a single opening in the top...I would guess. I don't think that any Ford V8 since an early flathead came with a single barrel carb... I'm not even sure they came with on although I vaguely recall one in '32-'34 era...maybe a V8-60.

the carb that is on the motor don't look like that one, here is a pic of the motor and tranny,





it's a 2 barrel though.

Anyone interested in this motor and tranny though? we decided not to go with this combo, it is the orginal motor and tranny for this car so if you need a period correct motor come check it out!

That is no Power Pack Option-

Quote:
Beginning with the 1954 V-8, Ford had offered a "Power Pack" option with high-compression heads, four-barrel carburetor with automatic choke, and dual exhausts. Predictably, it developed a taste for premium fuel. In 1955, for $35 above the $100 cost of the base V-8, this package had higher 8.5:1 compression and a four-barrel carb, raising the horsepower to 182 -- but was available only with Fordomatic. Dual exhausts were standard on all Fairlane V-8s.
