Re: what motors came in this bus?

i dont know buses well but i know fords. was probably a 331, 361, or 391. they all use the same block, but the bore and heads were different. essentialy an industrial 390 block.


but, hey, i could be wrong. (just dont tell my wife)

Do the pushrods go through the intake manifold? If sao, it's an FT (extreme-duty FE, basically), like Gromit said. Probably a 361.

Hard to say what you got, it's too old for a computer check. Give me the last 8 of the chassis vin and I can try and look it up in the Fische...

This Ford Engine list maybe useful to you....
