Ford Inline 6 Engine Rebuild – How-to Video
Ford Falcon Inline Six Long Block Build Video
I’ve been working on my 1963 Ford Falcon wagon for way to long now. Ever get the feeling about your project like… “It’ll never be done!” Well, let’s celebrate some progress! The short block’s put together and waiting the next couple steps in the powertrain build:
Assemble the head and the rest of the long block
Prep and Install of the T5 transmission (I know, I was planning on re-using the Dagenham 4 speed)
The video below is a step by step build of the 200 inline six. With guidance from my pops, a retired Ford mechanic, he shows me how-to, then I proceed to give it my best shot. I’m not always successful the first time, maybe like you might be… so, I hope everyone interested in building their own engine can learn a little something, and maybe have a laugh at the same time!

Was this helpful? Stick to my day job? I’d like to hear either way. As you can see, when it comes to building Ford inline 6 engines, I’m no expert, but did want to pass on what I learned. Leave a comment with any good info you have too!
Special thanks to Egge Machine Company of Santa Fe Springs, CA for the engine parts needed for this rebuild and Edelbrock for the engine assembly lube and break-in oil. I hope to use it soon!
