292 y block oil type

I know the oil question has been beat to death lately. The Y-block is a stock 1955 solid lifter motor. I have a few gallons of the old Rotella T, before they took out the zinc, it is 15w-40. I was looking at the valvoline VR-1. The conventional oil only comes in 20w-50 and straight weights. Don’t want to spend the $8.50+ a quart for the synthetic.

FAQ 292 y block oil type

What is the difference between a Ford 312 and 292 block?

Be sure that the beveled side of the washer faces toward the head of the bolt when using ARP hardware. The 312 blocks have taller main bearing caps than the 292; the exception is the rear main cap, which is the same height. As a result, the 312 has two different-length main bearing bolts, with the shorter ones used on the rear cap.

Where is the oil pickup on a Y block Ford engine?

The oil pickup on the Y-block Ford engine is external. It is fed through a hole in the oil pan from the inside out. Two sealing washers are included in the engine gasket kit for the pickup. One goes to the outside (the thicker one) of the pan and seals the pickup against the pan.

What does a 292 engine rebuild look like?

With the rotating assembly, crankshaft, pistons, connecting rods, and camshaft installed, the 292 rebuild is coming together and the pile of parts on the workbench gets smaller; it’s starting to look like an engine again. If your Y-block has experienced oil starvation, your timing gears may be excessively worn or damaged and need replacement.

What are the idiosyncrasies of the Ford Y-block engine series?

Another of the idiosyncrasies in the Y-block engine series, and for some the most challenging, is the manner in which the camshaft and crankshaft timing gears are aligned when the timing chain is installed.
