Yeah, about 110-120 mph if you find a good hill. Very dependable engines though, and simple to work on.
I replaced the head gasket on my '61 Ford Falcon with a 177 c.i.d. I6, and it took about 1 hour. Only because I forgot the torque specs and had to call my dad to read an old shop manual he had.
Gotta love the sixes!
"yeah though I walk through the valley of the shadow of rice, I will fear no turbo for torque art with me. Thy rods and thy crankshaft, they comfort me."
