Well if that is the case, how are people making 482 CI with a 427 block ?,,,, I know "how" they do it, Ford could have also.
The stroke was too long. The lever angle on the crank is too shallow.

Re: 427 v. 428

There never was a period where they were both available. To get the 427 you had to order the GT-E. There never was a time when you had a chance to pick one or the other. There were GT-E orders that were filled with the 428CJ when it replaced the 427. Given all that the 428 was much less expensive an...

Re: 427 v. 428

The GT-E is now running a 735 CFM service replacement 428 CJ carb other specs as below. I am not saying that my experience is the right, or only, way this could turn out, but I do have two very similar cars with the two engines in question installed in them (nearly identical transmissions and rear a...

Re: Detailing the Engine Compartment.
