roller block applications

I've been outta circulation for a while,

& can't even remember what I've forgotten...

Are ALL F4TE blocks cast for roller lifters? Will an F4TE block accept flat tappets (w/the corresponding cam)? Were F4TE blocks installed in any applications BESIDES Lightnings?

All info (especially links to reference sites) appreciated.

Much obliged,
Matt

Yes all F4TE blocks are roller ready.

Yes they will accept a flat tappet setup. That is what the Gen 1 has in it from the factory.

Not sure about other applications.

www.nloc.net for Gen 1 Lightning info.

I forgot to mention, the F4TE has the holes drilled for the spider hold down piece that holds the dogbones, but they have to be tapped.

the top of the lifter bore bosses were machined to the height for a hydraulic roller lifter starting about 1995..allthough not every engine was equipped with a hydraulic roller cam / lifter....
the block was in vans and other trucks that employed a hydraulic flat lifter and cast iron cam....

All F and E series trucks(except Lightning) from '94 on with a 5.8 had a factory roller cam in the F4TE block, that goes for the Bronco too and any cab & chassis combo.

DUNNO WHY IT MATTERS, because if it has a valve cover that LOOKS like it is a common 351.,
..then IT IS..

........because after the pushrod V-8...

there was NO OTHER variation...

other than a V-10 / modular type...


THE BLOCK WERE ALL THE SAME. from 1993
