440 Cleveland

I got the official OK to start on the 440 Cleveland.
The foundation of the engine will be Tod Buttermore block with a 9.350" deck height.
4.100" stroke
4.135" bore
We will be providing a shortblock for Terry Parker racing in Australia.
Terry has plans for the top end that is a secret at this point.
Terry is finishing it for a customer named Alex.
I plan on making a trip to Tod and pickup the block, possible after the labor day weekend.

Hopefully this will be a historical build to help jump start Tod's block and the potential
his blocks will provide.

Cylinder wall thickness.

At 4.135 bore it will be approximately a .285 wall. Hope it can handle the horses!

room to grow..

August 26 2013, 2:26 PM 

you could cut it out to at least .25 wall...

,285-.250 = .035

.035 x 2 (for both sides of the OD = .07

4.135 + .07= 4.205" bore!

4.25 even looks like a possibility if you like life on the edge!

Tod, this is where a 9.5" deck height would shine. 4.125 bore X 4.125 stroke gives you 441 cubes. You could use a 1.190 pin height Cleveland piston and a 6.250 SBC connecting rod. (Same pin height as a 9.2 deck height with 4" stroke and a 6" rod uses). If Scott Cook could make his dual plane intake for a 9.5" deck Cleveland it would make a great combo. Heck it should make 650-700 HP @ 6400-6700 RPM's with a CHI or Scotts heads. And should fit under most factory hoods. Be a prefect street strip engine.

Engine combo?

August 27 2013, 7:35 AM 

My foundry poured the first casting today of my new Race "Air Supremacy" intake manifold.
This intake would be killer on this 440cuin deal.
Terry what's the induction plans?

Wow, you spent a lot of time in school, and the Big 10, nice. Anyway, you are about a 4 hour drive from me, close enough to pick up a block.
