EBP is an Engine Prefix

June 19 2008, 9:20 PM 

According to the 1957 Ford Service Specifications book, EBP is a 6 cyl, 223 cubic inch, all conventional passenger car models.

All engine prefixes begin with E, I would assume Engine Div. design responsibility. The prefix is not necessarily related to model year.

EES = 390
EEZ = 406
EGB = 427
and so on ... .

Regards,
Dennis

EDC-whatever is a casting

I don't think there were ever any 427's with a casting number beginning with E. Only FE ones i've ever seen were late 50's. The 1958 machined chamber heads for instance.

As for the six banger i'm not sure if the casting number will identify the year but there should be a date cast in somewhere.

The codes such as EGB for a 427 only showed up on the engineering drawings and on process sheets. It was an E&F Div. thing.

I`m pretty sure the only 6 cylinder offered in a 56 Ford car would be a 223 ci "Mileage Maker" 6.

That is the prefix or identifier.

One may find on a cylinder head, EDB-D, then somewhere else on the casting, 6090, along with the manufacturing date code.

Then for a short time there were "boxcar numbers", i.e. 5751432.

Then return to the Decade/Year/Product Line/Design Responsibility prefix, i.e. B8AE, sometime in 1958.

Dennis

There was also a 262 inline 6, although I'm pretty sure it was a truck-only engine, but was very similar to the 223.

The 262 I-6 motor was introduced in 1961 I think.

June 20 2008, 8:42 AM 

Only produced for two or three years as I recall. There was a 262 HD (Heavy Duty) version for bigger trucks.

Since Ford would have been using C?T?-whatever in the sixties you most likely have the 223. Of course someone "could" have mixed parts.

'56 was a 223, rated at 132hp and 202tq. Bore and stroke-3.62x3.60, this was the car engine, didn't show the truck engine. For '57 it was upgraded to 144hp and 212tq.
