Speaking of 427 side-oilers........I didn't want to hijack CbtEngr01's thread by posting this. Thought you'd get a kick out of it.



And on the seventh day the Lord did walk close to his Thunderbolt, and it came to pass that he popped the hood, to gaze upon the 427 He had created, and He saw that it was good. There were 8 venturis upon the aluminum intake, gilded flags upon the aluminum fenders, and this too was good.

So the Lord closed the blessed hood and did drive from the garden of Dearborn, until He came to the house of Chevrolet, where Satan was again lamenting that his camshaft had once again walked through the tin can timing cover.

And the Lord didst ask "Why art thou persisting with such mechanical heresy? Turn thee to the light, and see that the Oval is Blue".

And Satan grunted, for his waterpump-on-a-stick didst fall upon him, he was of foul humour, and he knew that weak small blocks and rear-mounted distributors would not cure the ills he had passed upon gullible men.

Seeing this, the Lord didst spin His tires all the way into 4th gear, and lo Satan was enshrouded in a curious blue mist that not being of oil, didst confuse him, and he was unable to see the light through the heavenly cloud of burning rubber, and the smell of leaded race fuel.

And so it came to pass that Satan remained loyal to the house of Chevrolet, wasting away whilst his manufacturing facilities churned out engine blocks cast from recycled Corona bottle caps.

    Words well spoken, but I really need to find that passage in the bible.

    There's many ways to top that side oiler.

    I picked up a "How to hotrod Ford engines" book a couple years ago. That was the first time I ever saw pics of the Tunnel Port. Wow! Looks like you could fit a tennis ball in the intake ports! I bet that setup made gobs of power![:0][8D][:p]

    So is the Cammer as well as the 406, both 4V and 6V. IIRC some, very few, of the SO'ers also came with High Rise heads.

    Then of course there was always the SideWinder. My memory is defective, but I seem to recall it coming on HR heads. Maybe TP also?

    That one would suit my needs just fine![8D][:p][:D]


    Late last year, on the local Craigs List, a guy had a 427 SOHC for sale. All disassembled, cylinders had never been bored out, heads never touched. It was all there. Asking price was $35,000 as is, where is.[:0]

    While not a steal, 35k was good for an un-molested Cammer.

    Went into Auto Industrial down in Wichita a number of years ago searhing for parts for a buddies build and found one of these.

    NOS, not a bolt turned on it, along with a bare pair of HR heads. We walked out the door with the whole package for under $200.[:p]
    Used a 352 truck block (mirrored cast 352) and a 2U crank to build a 410.

    My local FORD dealer leaves the doors unlocked on all the cars in their lot. It lures people like me to get in and sit behind the wheel. They know that the chances are MUCH greater that I will part with $ 34K after I sat in the Mustang even with no salesman around.

    I am a total idiot for taking the bait today. No salesman around, but I am likely to buy a car I don't need now. Once you get in it, you get on it.

    Not quite. I misspoke.
    Had the Sidewinder confused for the X-Ram previously.

    Sidewinder.

    I'm still torn between using my slant deck 6V set-up on my Thunderbird, or staying with the '61 Police Interceptor she came with.

    Seems like nowadays, "Special Order High Performance Parts" means plugging a little plastic box in under the dashboard.[V]
