ford 534 engine.

hello men. its been awhile.
i am trying to find any and all information on the ford 534 truck motor, due to its passing by the way side there isnt any information available without digging through old chiltons truck books, however i dont have one for these applications and dont have anyone around here who has one either.

need bore spacing, rod journal sizes, main journal sizes, head configurations, rod sizes etc.

i also read on a ford forum that the combustion chamber is in the block not in the head, dont know how thats possible being that the motors are supposed to be configured after the M-E-L engines...


please help

G'day Stinger460,

I don't know much about the 534 Super Duty motors but the following info. is out of a Ford Truck service manual. But I do know that the Heads on these Ford SD engines are like 409 Chevy heads, i.e. no actual combustion chamber area in the head, just valves and sparkplugs. All the combustion volume is in the cylinder. The top of the block is NOT 90 degrees to the bore centre line like a Cleveland or Windsor or SBC or BBC.

Following specs are all "standard" sizes for a 534SD.

Specs for 534 SD:-Bore 4.500" Stroke 4.20"
Compression 7.5:1. Combustion chamber volume 155.5-161cc. This volume is in the cylinder as previously explained.

Crankshaft:- Mains 3.125" +/- .004". Clearance spec (service tolerance):-0.0018-0.0039"

Conrods:-2.7096" +/- .004". Length 7.739"-7.741".

Sorry, no specs on bore spacing.

Hope this helps.

P.S. If required I can scan a pic out of the manual showing a cut-away of the motor with the aforementioned cylinder/head arrangement and post it here if need be.

Cheers.........Barry.

G'day Stinger460,

Just did a search on the net for "Ford 534 SD bore spacing". Lots of hits with the spec. of 5.25". Don't know if this is 100% correct, but it is looking likely ?.

Cheers..........Barry.

head design.

You could make a lot more horsepower with a 409 chevy by changing to pistons with raised areas to make a smaller combustion chamber in the piston , that was diagonal over the valves and spark plug.

engine machining equipment,

The ford small blocks were manufactured on the same machinery as the old ford Y blocks, back in the day there were a few modified forged Y cranks that fit a small blocks, the Ford Fe's were made on older machinery and the 429-460;s were also ran on old mel machinery ..so there are carry over dimensions
