Wow, that seemed like an unusual place for the engine to let go, out of the throttle and not high rpm's (if I'm hearing the video correctly).

Have you decided if it was a valve that let go or something else?

Speculation at this point because its not fully apart yet but its looking that way. Either valve head broke off and destroyed the piston or the valve got stuck in the guide and the piston smashed into it.

Should be out and at the shop tomorrow so I'll know in a few weeks how bad it is and what I'm in for $$$.

Sorry for your loss, but those Ford crate engines are essentially street engines. I don't know who assembles the Ford heads, but I would be looking at what parts were used. PowerNation TV just built a 363 using a Dart block as an endurance engine for a road race team that should be able to withstand just about any abuse.


My air compressor just blew up and made more of a racket than that 363 when it let go.

The Fauxstang. Dynacorn 67 fastback. Dart SHP 363, Close ratio Magnum 6 speed, 3.70 Eaton Truetrac in a fabricated full floater 9", SorT coil over suspension. Still in pieces.
'14 SHO with most all the bells and whistles. Stock for now.

Yeah, I'm bummed. I don't even have a KABLAMO video to share... According to those behind me apparently there was plenty of smoke!

When my FRPP create dropped a valve it made no noise either.

The problem with mine was the friction welded valve that let go. What a mess...

More money and better components will fix it I'm sure!

Motor is going into the shop today and a new plan will be formed.

Yeah, it's funny sometimes, I made a 3-piece crank out of my Formula Ford 1600cc, all I heard was a muted thump. No smoke, fire or anything, just went from 7k to dead silent !

Dropped the motor off at Survival Motorsports today. On initial inspection Barry thinks a rod let go.

Most of the motor looks trashed unfortunately. The block may be salvageable with a sleeve, the crank may get saved, maybe one head. The rest is door stops and paperweights.
