The Speedmaster Ford Cleveland 3v heads are a perfect upgrade for both 2 and 4 barrel engines. We have re-designed the intake ports by raising the floor to help cut down on the massive cross-section that hampers OEM 4 barrel heads. Not only do you get more performance out of the box than OEM heads, our heads are significantly lighter since they are made of “Gravity Die Cast” aluminum. As another benefit, you can run higher compression with aluminum heads before the onset of power robbing detonation. There is absolutely no reason to rebuild a set of OEM castings when you can buy a lighter, higher flowing and more detonation resistant cylinder head for less money from us!
To top it all off, we offer CNC ported Cleveland heads for people looking for even more performance.
INTAKE / EXHAUST GASKETS
Due to the unique raised port of the Speedmaster 3v head, the only intake gaskets readily available are Speedmaster SM3282 which measure 1.73(W) x 2.140(T) with the floor of the port 1.220” up from the deck of the head.
The exhaust side of the head uses standard 4v exhaust gaskets. You can use Speedmaster SM3274 or Fel-Pro 1416 header gaskets which measure 1.89” (W) x 2.19” (T).
The Speedmaster PCE281.1703, PCE281.1714, PCE281.1724 and PCE281.1726 cylinder heads use the following head gaskets for use with 351C block:
Speedmaster PCE348.1005 (MLS 4.055” gasket bore)
Fel-Pro 1013 (Composite 4.100” gasket bore)
Both gaskets are .040” thickness when compressed.
HEAD BOLTS / STUDS
The Speedmaster Cleveland 3v heads require specific head studs that are longer than standard.
Use Speedmaster PCE279.1014.
These studs should only be finger tightened into the block. Torque the nuts to 65lbs. using high pressure moly lube, in increments of 15lbs.
Our Ford Cleveland cylinder heads require the use of a 14mm. thread 5/8” hex, .750” reach spark plugs. Below you will find a list of some plugs that fit and work with our heads:
NGK - BCPR6ES, R5671A-7, R5671A-8
Autolite - 3923, 3924, AR3933, AR3934
Champion - RC12YC, RC10YC4, RC9YC3
Remember that you need a COLDER plug when you make more power, ie. N2O, Turbo and supercharging.
Speedmaster™ AUS Letty Project
The AUS Letty Project (XY GT Falcon) was a project car that the employees at Speedmaster™ Australia took on for having fun at Power Cruise. It began as a standard replacement project, but once the team began, it soon became a performance street vehicle.
The rules of the project by the Speedmaster™ manager was he wanted a car the team could take to Power Cruise to do laps, burn-outs and show and shine, however at the same time be able to drive it every day as the lunch truck.
This guideline gave the team the flexibility to do what they wanted, but make sure the reliability was there at all times. For those of you not familiar with the type of car it is a Ford XY Falcon GT. Which is an Australian built muscle car based on the Ford XY Falcon; released in 1970 with the GTHO Phase III released in 1971 which was the fourth in the initial series of Ford Falcon GT muscle cars.
