  • The 'Fairlane V8' engine, as it was known at Ford, went into production in July 1961 ready for installation into the all new 1962 model-year 'Intermediate' Ford Fairlane and Mercury Meteor cars which started to be released to the public in late November 1961. This all new engine began in May 1960 when chief engineer of the Engine & Foundry Division of the Ford Motor Company, Bill Innes, selected 39 year old section supervisor, George Stirrat, to lead a team of nine engineers to design a compact, light-weight V8 engine of 220-225 cu in, which had to be in production during July of the following year. This target was met with the whole process taking just 13 months from start to finish - a remarkable achievement in automotive engineering terms. This was only possible because the 221ci engine was designed to be machined using the existing Ford Y-Block V8 machine tooling. The production of an engine didn't just stop at Ford, engines were phased in and phased out with much over-lap. This way, if anything went wrong with the new engine, the old engine was still in production and could be increased to cover any deficit. This of course couldn't have applied to the 221ci because of its small dimensions so it had to be right. The Ford Y-Block was in fact going to be phased out at some time in the near future but the new engine wasn't at that time the intended replacement - just a new engine. One line of Ford Y-Block production at the Cleveland Engine Plant however was stopped in 1961 and converted to 221ci engine production. The Small Block Ford family of engines evolved significantly during its 39-year history through technological, performance, and reliability enhancements. Engine displacement also increased from 221 cu in (3.6 L) up to 351 cu in (5.8 L) over the years in several stages namely 221ci (1961-1963), 260ci (1962-1964), 289ci (1963-1968), 302ci (1968-2000), 351ciW (1969-1996), 335ci (1970-1996 in Mexico) and 255ci/4.2L (1980-1982). The 221ci, 260ci, 289ci-2V, 289ci-4V and the HP-289ci-4V, were manufacturered at Ford's Cleveland Engine Plant Number One/CEP1 (July 1961- June 1967). The production of 289s started at the Windsor Engine Plant Number One/WEP1 in 1966 and continued through to August 1968 while the Cuautitlan Engine Plant in Mexico started to make 260ci and 289ci engines in 1965. The 302ci variant was introduced for the 1968 car model year (production started July 1967) and all three engine plants started to make them, with the Windsor Engine Plant only, continuing to make the 289ci until August 1968 - a cheaper engine than the 302ci and a way of using up all of the existing 289 parts. The Windsor Engine Plant made the 302 for one year before re-tooling to start making the George Stirrat/Philip Martel designed 'tall deck' 351ci version of the small block engine for the 1969 car model year. The Cleveland Engine Plant Number One made the 302ci right through to 2000 having added a second line in 1978 in an effort to keep up with demand. The Windsor Engine Plant Number Two/WEP2 made all of the 255ci/4.2L engines 1980-1982 and then switched over to 302ci/5.0L production in 1983 and continued until 1996. The Cuautitlan Engine Plant made approximately 1 million 260ci, 289ci, 302ci, 335ci (based on the 351ciW) and 351ciW engines 1965-1996. The 335 Series, 351ci "Cleveland" V8 or 351ciC, introduced in 1970, was intended as a USA only option - a higher specification small block engine for US customers only. This small block variant was over-seen by chief engineer Bill Gay himself although the canted valve cylinder head arrangement was an engine engineering engineer, Joe Macura recommendation. The 'W' for Windsor and 'C' for Cleveland being the means by which Ford first differentiated between their two 351ci engine variants for 1970 car model year vehicles. The Cleveland V8 was phased out at the end of 1974 due to a basic lack of demand after about 4 million had been made, it being more expensive than the 351ciW. The term 'Windsor' has therefore been extrapolated over the years by the press and general public to include the whole engine series - Ford too now quotes the term Windsor for this series of engines. Using the term 'Windsor' to describe the whole series of engines is therefore very acceptable as is knowing how it occurred. It is Fords most numerously produced V8 with approximately 35,000,000 units having been made. For the 1991 car model year, Ford began phasing in their new Jim Clarke design team led 4.6/5.4 L Modular V8 engine which was to replace the small block Windsor - it was regarded as old technology by this point even if good technology. In 1996, Ford replaced the 5.0 L (302 cu in) pushrod Windsor V8 with the Modular 4.6 L in the Mustang. Its use continued until 1997 in the F-150 pickup truck, and until 2001 in the Explorer SUV and 2002 by Ford Australia in their Falcon and Fairlane cars but production of the 302ci/5.0L had stopped at the end of December 2000 and the engines used came from 'build ahead stocks'. From the mid-1970s through the 1990s, the 'Windsor' engine was also marinized for use in smaller recreational boats. As of 2014, Windsor engines, including the 5.8 L (351 cu in) and 5.0L 302, were still being manufactured from Ford's massive 'build ahead stocks' inventory; available as complete crate motors from Ford Racing and Performance Parts. Ford Power Products, a small division of the Ford Motor Company, supplied quite a range of 5.0L and 5.8L marine and industrial/stationary engines over the years. For example: 5.0L stationary engines for pumping oil or water and electricity generation; commercial air compressors where the right-hand cylinder head had been removed and converted to air compressing, 5.0L and 5.8L were even available for home-built aircraft - engines certified, installed backwards in planes, open exhaust, back-fire protection in the carburetor. 5.0L in Brazil converted to run on 100% alcohol - low compression ratio of 7.0:1.

  • O V8 302 é um modelo de motor para veículos, produzido pela Ford Motor Company. Os motores em "V", como o próprio nome diz, são construídos em formato "V" com a finalidade de ocupar menos espaço nos compartimentos destinados ao acomodamento dos motores nos automóveis. A nomenclatura V8 302 , ou seja; oito cilindros em formato "V" (quatro cilindros de cada lado, formando o "V"), com 302 polegadas cúbicas de cilindrada, equivalentes a 5,0 litros.Por apresentar uma cilindrada bastante elevada, esses motores são comumente empregados em veículos de grande performance, principalmente os esportivos de rua. Contudo, também é utilizado em aplicações marítimas. Esse motor ficou conhecido no Brasil por ter sido utilizado no Ford Maverick GT e SL e no Ford Galaxie, na versão 500, LTD e Landau. Também conhecido por "motor canadense" por ser exportado para o Brasil via Canadá, possui várias diferenças para os outros V8, como a ordem de ignição diferente do padrão usual (1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2, padrão Ford: 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8). À época, possuía 198cv brutos, sendo um dos mais potentes motores a equipar um veículo nacional. Nos EUA, foi utilizado em vários modelos como o Mustang, Galaxy, Maverick, picapes série F. Até pouco tempo ainda era fabricado sendo utilizado no utilitário esportivo Explorer, por exemplo. Atualmente foi substituído por um motor de projeto mais moderno, mas cilindrada muito próxima. (pt)
