Since you did bring it up, what is the standard angle for the Ford blocks, vs the oddball 30 degrees (I hope I worded all of that correctly)?


Also, which parts will usually not interchange?


Thanks!
I really think it depends on what exact motors you are talking about.
Some of them were quite different.
