Re: Help-What motor is this??
Are you sure its a Ford? That appears to be a Jeep body and it looks like a factory setup. I have never known Ford to build a straight 6 with cross fire induction like that. It is definately not the Ford 300 or 240. Judging by what the Ford 223 and 262 intake manifold setup is, I don't think it is any of those either. The intake/exhaust port alignment is not correct. I don't know of any other Ford straight 6's, but I haven't been around long enough to know what they did in the fifties and earlier. Are you sure it is not an old Jeep 258?
If it ain't broke, I can probably still fix it.
