Our engine short block showed up yesterday directly from Ford Racing. This is a 351W based aluminum block bored and stroked to 427cid. This thing is beautiful; it’s a shame so much of it will be covered up once the engine is assembled.
My buddy John was in town for business and is staying with us for the weekend. He helped me assemble the engine stand and hang the engine from it. We turned it over a couple of times to check clearances and ensure everything was moving smoothly then wrapped it back up tight until we’re ready to work on it.
