Ford Y-Block Pistons
Vintage Product Cast in U.S.A. With High-Silicon Aluminum Alloy
In 1954 Ford introduced their new OHV V-8. The Y-Block has the same
displacement and compression ratio as the famous Ford flathead, but the
overhead valve design and a new Holley Model AA-1 Carburetor combined
to raise horsepower to 130 in the stock application. In an attempt to
differentiate its V-8 from their competitors, Ford characterized its
deep-block construction as the letter "Y" and referred to the engine as
a Y-Block. In 1956 the Y-block 312 cid was introduced with a variety
of performance options to increase compression ratio and horsepower
from 202 to 260 with the Dual Quad Holley set-up.
Rebuild this classic with the L2018 pistons from Egge, manufactured in Santa Fe Springs, CA.
