The photos in this edition are black and white. From factory drag racing, to the AC Cobra, to the legendary Mustang, the history of the Ford big-block is a long and storied one. Making its debut in the late 1950s, the Ford FE big-block engine sat between the fenders of factory lightweights, Cobra Jet Mustangs, 427 Cobras, Cougar Eliminators, Talledega Torinos, and Mach 1s. While the FE engines remained in production through the mid 1970s, mostly in light-truck applications, Ford had plans for a new engine on the horizon. In the late 1960s, Ford transitioned the FE big-block out of production in passenger cars and performance applications in favor of an all-new design, called the 385 series, also known as Lima big-block. Originally used in luxury-car applications, the 429-cubic-inch version of this engine found its way into performance applications such as Mustangs and Torinos starting in 1971. The high-compression 4-barrel versions, called Cobra Jet or Super Cobra Jet, are some of the most powerful engines Ford has ever produced. An engine similar in design to the Lima series engine, the legendary 351 Cleveland made its debut in 1970. While technically a small-block in many ways, its oval ports, canted heads, and physical size made people think of it more as a mid-block than a small-block. The 351- and 400-cubic-inch versions (the latter known as M series engines) of the Cleveland engine were used in passenger car applications and in light trucks starting in 1975. The M stood for modified, as the deck height, bearing sizes, as well as pistons and connecting rods were modified for low-compression passenger car and light truck use, and they were used all the way through the early 1980s. All three engines are covered in full detail in this Workbench series rebuild volume. Included are step-by-step heavily illustrated instructions, that walk you through the entire process of rebuilding your Ford engine. If you want to breathe new life into your tired old Ford engine, this is the book for you.

Over the course of performance car history, and specifically muscle car history, big-block engines are particularly beloved, and for good reason. Not only are they the essence of what a muscle car is, but before modern technology and stroker engines, they were also the best way to make a lot of horsepower. All of the Detroit manufacturers had their versions of big-block engines, and Ford was no exception. Actually, Ford was somewhat unique in that it had two very different big-block engine designs during the muscle car era. The FE engine was a design pioneered in the late 1950s, primarily as a more powerful replacement for the dated Y-block design because cars were becoming bigger and heavier, and therefore, necessitated more power to move. What started as torquey engines meant to move heavyweight sedans morphed into screaming high-performance mills that won Le Mans and drag racing championships through the 1960s. By the late 1960s, the design was dated, so Ford replaced the FE design with the "385" series, also known as the "Lima" design, which was more similar to the canted-valve Cleveland design being pioneered at the same time. It didn't share the 1960s pedigree of racing success, but the new design was better in almost every way; it exists via Ford motorsports offerings to this day. In Ford Big-Block Parts Interchange, Ford expert and historian George Reid covers both engines completely. Interchange and availability for all engine components are covered including cranks, rods, pistons, camshafts, engine blocks, intake and exhaust manifolds, carburetors, distributors, and more. Expanding from the previous edition of High-Performance Ford Parts Interchange that covered both small- and big-block engines in one volume, this book cuts out the small-block information and devotes every page to the FE Series and 385 big-blocks from Ford, which allows for more complete and extensive coverage. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Arial}
