Ford 312 Y Block 1956-1960 Master Kit
After years on back order, this kit now includes a set of NEW Sealed Power mechanical lifters!
in 1956, Mercury model cars were powered with the 312 engine with 4 bbl carb. Our engine kit is built with the flattop pistons which will give a 9 to 9.5 to 1 compression ratio depending on the cylinder head used. The 312 v8 varied in horsepower from 210 HP version in Mercury cars w/ manual transmissions to the 260 horsepower version in 1956 with a dealer installed Hi Performance camshaft and revised cylinder heads with 4 bbl carburetor.
Please note… Occasionally we will substitute top quality brand names in our engine kits. Some examples are Melling & Sealed Power, Perfect Circle & Hastings, Clevite & Federal Mogul. Thank You.
