Manufactured from the late 1950s through the mid-1970s, Ford FE engines served as the large-displacement drivers in the Ford lineup. With the FE standing for “Ford Edsel,” these engines were designed to increase displacement over the earlier Y-Block engines. As the model grew, the FE performed admirably as a heavy passenger car and light truck engine—as well as became quite accomplished in performance circles.
Part of CarTech’s Workbench series, Ford FE Engines: How to Rebuild walks readers through rebuilding these legendary engines, including identification and selection, disassembly, cleaning, parts cleaning and assessment, machine shop processes, selecting replacement parts, reassembly, and start-up/break-in techniques. Author Barry Rabotnick also shares tips such as performance upgrades, trouble spots, and special tools needed—as well as a few of his own professional secrets.
