Just a few thoughts, I am close to having the 59 F100 on the road but it burns alot of oil. I think that the rings are stuck. I plan on running quite a bit of magic snake oil through it to see if I can get them to free up. But if I can't then I will need to change out or rebuild the motor. So will 292 and 312 interchange? I also have a spare, fresh
SBC but if I went this route I would like to retain the factory 4 speed. It has a hydro clutch and sounds great in all gears. Does anyone know how or if you can mate a SBC to the 59 F100 4 speed?
