Compression is about 125 psi but anything above about 90 psi will do; the important point is that the lowest is within 90% of the highest. Thed main bearings are shells, but the big ends were originally direct metalled, although a conversion to shells was available. You might have problems sourcing them, though.

Fitting rings doesn't normally work on these engines which, being a long stroke, use high piston speeds. The original rings open up their grooves, so the new rings hammer up and down within them, and shatter - usually at about 6,000 miles. Check them first, but pistons will probably be needed.

Wiring diagram is for up to October 1957.

Ford didn't use VIN or Chassis Numbers at that date, they used original Engine Numbers instead. It was stamped into the panel mounting the right hand (looking forward) surrounding the front suspension mount in a very stylised font, but also on a (usually) diamond shaped plate above the battery. Earlier cars used a rectangular plate on the scuttle panel below the rear edge of the bonnet, or hood in your language!

It would state for instance:

Type 101E
Engine Number 100E XXXX

A year or so ago, I believe Dave Bean Engineering, Kip Motor and Anglia Obsolete all could supply conversion shells for the rod bearings.
