Thanks for the links. I wrote questions to the sellers. quite an interesting option would be as ultradog wrote. 4.4 "x4.2".
As I mentioned, Ford did build a 192 CI. 4.4x4.2
I think they were used in the 3910.
I see you have a Simms pump. Dont know if those can be reset like the CAV rotary pumps can to run the bigger engine.
Too bad you are SO far away...
I have a used 4.2 block here I would sell cheaply.
Needs overhauled. I would sleeve it.
Together with the new 175 pistons I mentioned earlier it would fix you right up.

Díky za odpovědi. Píšu vše, co mohu, ale zpráva od ultradogu mě velmi potěšila. je hlava válce stejná pro vrtání válců o průměru 4,2 "a 4,4"?


Thanks for the answers. I write everything I can, but I was very pleased with the news from the ultradog. is the cylinder head the same for drilling 4.2 "and 4.4" diameter cylinders?

thanks for the links, but so far it looks like no one has an engine. I would just ask the cylinder head if it will fit from 4.2 "to 4.4" and on ebay I found the pistons. I will assume that I am building a Ford 3910 engine. and they write on eBay that they are the same as the Ford 4000.

in truth, it already gives me a headache.

Okay, here's what I know for sure:
1) Any 3 cyl diesel head built from 1965-83 will fit any block that was built from 65-83.
The head gasket is different for 4.2 and 4.4
2)In 1976 they changed the head from square intake ports to oval intake ports. The newer oval heads will still work on the older block IF you use the corresponding oval manifold. Exhaust manifolds also changed in 76 but old will work on new and vice versa.
3)If that red block is machined for 1/2" head bolts you can use it with your existing internals and head to build an engine. If it is machined for 9/16 head bolts you can use your internals but not your head.

would it be possible to drill a hole in the block from 1/2 to 9/16? I have to reckon with all the possibilities, because the information from the seller is quite poor. And nowadays I can't take a car and start measuring the engine at a dealer. they won't let me cross the border

The bolt problem is solved by using studs with 9/16" threads for the block and a 1/2" shank with 1/2" threads on top. Same problem for the timing cover bolt holes as for the head bolt holes, but I think those are 5/16" and 1/2" threads.

See under tab "More info":

The head studs would solve his head interchange. I had not heard of those.
Pricy though.
He shouldn't need the timing cover studs. The timing cover bolts to the front block plate - both of which he would be reusing from his old engine.

I checked some parts lists, the threads for the timing cover bolts changed from 5/16" to 3/8" during the 30-series production. These blocks are probably made as one size fits all, and therefore they have 3/8" threads.

On ebay.de the same seller has a block for sale. The pictures are the same as on kleinanzagen, but here is also one with a ruler showing the bore size.

On kleinanzagen the block is new:
https://m.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-a...-ford-2000-3000-2600-3600/1493158754-276-2638

On ebay.de the block is used, but further down it is new?:
https://www.ebay.de/itm/Original-FO...940991?hash=item1cf1fc7f3f:g:BKgAAOSwxuNfSd6P

Perhaps there are two different blocks for sale, one new and one used, and the seller just reused the pictures from one of them. If so, that has to be mentioned in the ad.

There are some signs that can mean that this is a remanufactured block, but it can also be a returned new block. Nothing of that means that there is something wrong with it, but if it has been machined in any way you need to check it personally before buying. The bores may have been honed to a point where you need oversized pistons, for instance.

yes, dry sleeves are also available in the Czech Republic, but my mechanic, who specializes in engine repairs, told me that the hole is located on the lower edge of the liner and the coolant will not hold it and will flow back into the oil.
It would be interesting to watch some pictures showing the damages.
You say liner, does your engine have liners?
How far from the block top surface are the damages?

Ok
The 30 series is newer than I am familiar with.
I have both a 1973 block and a 10 series block here. Both of them use 5/16" bolts.
Boy those parts are expensive!
If he was just closer...
The 1973 block is 4.4 and has new sleeves and new cam bearings in it. I would sell it real reasonable.
By the time he buys the ebay block, plus the head studs, plus the timing cover studs he could probably buy my block and have it shipped there.
Then there wouldn't be any question that all his internals would fit too.

[QUOTE = "Ultradog, příspěvek: 352223, člen: 1514"] Dobře
Řada 30 je novější, než znám.
Mám tu blok z roku 1973 i blok ze série 10. Oba používají šrouby 5/16 ".
Bože, ty díly jsou drahé!
Kdyby byl jen blíž ...
Blok z roku 1973 je 4,4 a má nová pouzdra a nová vačková ložiska. Prodal bych to opravdu rozumně.
Než si koupí blok ebay, plus čepy hlavy a čepy krytu časování, mohl si pravděpodobně koupit můj blok a nechat ho tam odeslat.
Pak by nebylo pochyb, že by se vešly i všechny jeho vnitřnosti. [/ QUOTE]
I would buy everything from you, but shipping US-Czech costs about $ 1,000

[QUOTE = "Hacke, příspěvek: 352217, člen: 18738"] Na ebay.de má stejný prodejce blok na prodej. Obrázky jsou stejné jako na kleinanzagen, ale zde je také jeden s pravítkem ukazujícím velikost otvoru.

Na kleinanzagen je blok nový:
https://m.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-a...-ford-2000-3000-2600-3600/1493158754-276-2638

Na ebay.de se blok používá, ale dále dolů je nový ?:
https://www.ebay.de/itm/Original-FO...940991?hash=item1cf1fc7f3f:g:BKgAAOSwxuNfSd6P

Možná existují dva různé bloky na prodej, jeden nový a jeden použitý, a prodejce právě znovu použil obrázky z jednoho z nich. Pokud ano, musí to být uvedeno v reklamě.

Existují určité známky, které mohou znamenat, že se jedná o repasovaný blok, ale může to být také vrácený nový blok. Nic z toho neznamená, že s ním není něco v pořádku, ale pokud to bylo nějakým způsobem opracováno, musíte to před nákupem osobně zkontrolovat. Otvory mohly být vybroušeny do bodu, kdy například potřebujete nadrozměrné písty. [/ QUOTE]
Seller also sent me this scaled photo to the engine block on the Kleinanzagen site. do you think that block is used or wrong?
