Re: 4.0l Dual cam

I need to consult my 60* V6 book

There are many european Cosworth parts for this engine family,
so if they are from the same block it could be feasible! Bet I could
do it


PSedit: Hopefully the Cosworth has a forged steel crank, better get that
at the same time. It will need it! My machinist thinks the 4.0 is junk, mostly
because of the bottom end. He's also a real stroker king, he built possibly
the world's first 408W using the 400M crank in a 351. He's made more strokers
than all the V6 shops combined. (all types of Fords from 4 cyl to big block and other brands)

Impressive, who is your machinist.

The name is John Walker, he works for Taylor's in Terre Haute, IN
There is also a crank grinding shop across the street from him, they
do all his crank work. Everything from stock re-work to welded strokers
I don't think either shop is on the internet...

Re: 4.0l Dual cam

RGR, I think where his reasoning might come from is this engine has been bored and stroked about to its limits by Ford, it started as like a 2.6L I believe, the OHC was added like around 10 years ago.

The 4.0 is a different block than the 2.6, 2.8, 2.9, 3.0 series, and is far from maxxed out More later * ...

The reason Walker says they are junk is that he sees lots of them getting
repaired, and I guess he has seen many types of problems. I will ask him
what some of these are and how to avoid them. His "junk" comment was
relative to other less problematic Ford engines, like the 3.8, that was the
context of his comment.

* As for the 4.0 blocks, they have the widest bore spacing I've seen on
anything short of a big block, and bigger than some of those off brand
big blocks. It is 4.76" and theoretically you could get 4.5" bores if it were
sleeved to the max.

If you poured the block I'd guess you could get a 4.100" bore give or take,
the stock bore is 3.95" and you could probably go 60 over no problemo.
I could see some nice high RPM NA setups with a big bore, stock stroke
making some great HP. Get a 4.2-ish OHC motor revving to 7500 and you'll
see some serious power if the heads flow really well. 450 BHP with 300 CFM
and good combustion at least, if the crank holds up
