I am beginning to see that as well. I just hate to see people misinformed on our great cars

Yes, I love jay lenos garage. He would know that the bore and stroke of a 288 is 3.5 x 3.75(288.63) and not 2.5 x 3.75 (146.26) as Derek states in his video. Makes me wonder how a mechanic as good as him could make such a fundamental mistake. Stubborn and obstinate I guess

That is true I read about it in "Iron Fist". But is it not true that trucks still use oil bath air cleaners? If so, why have they not changed over if the cost is lower? True the trucks are not racing but???

Yeah, I forgot about the lifters. What about the block? My guess is it could be the same.

other than the Crank and I am guessing rods are there any other differences between the 288 and the 5 main bearing 327? Thank you

Thank you for the reply. I wondered. I did just see a 200 on utube with what appeared to be a long ago painted green engine. It confused me thanks

anyone that uses utube for car videos. may have seen Vice Grip Garage. It very is well done. and Derek is a better mechanic than I will ever be but he just won't listen to me on the bore and stroke of a 1952 288.He insists its got a 2 1/2 bore. He even deleted my post. And blocked me from posting. It's simple math a 2 1/2 inch bore 288 block would be 147.26 Ci not 288.63 Check it out its worth a view

As far as engine color goes for 1951 to 1954 cars Excepting the 359 were they all grey? or was the "400" engine green? till the 359 that was bronze. I think they were all green 1950 and previous. I am unsure on 51-54
