Hmmm feature in Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords on strokers
say 347 not good for street engines...Say piston/ring troubles after 10.000 miles....Burn oil...Rings too close to top piston and weak'ns tension...Hmmmm??? Hope that depends on parts quality of the whole kit...
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Ohh yes and how many years have they been built here????
The statements are from people that build 347's. They try to talk people into the 330 stroker for long endurance street use...
Remember:: I;m only the mesenger! Please don't shoot me...
I hope you are right!
I was just pointing out that since the Mag is american, I guess they would be talking about american built 347's.
I know we get the US blocks, but they are the 5.0, the 347 is built by tickford will all australian designed and manufactured parts.
For the record I hope this isnt the case, that these engines will die after 10,000km. I really doubt it will happen though. We aussies build stuff good .
Do I really have to write something funny in here?

Just to clarify:
I am guessing, however I believe Tickford would have gone for testing the cheaper US kits which comprise cast pistons, I-beam rods, and iron cranks. These are perfectly good for a production engine as issues like warm-up etc are reduced.
My engine is typical of those built by Herrods. It uses a steel crank, H-beam rods, and hypereutectic pistons. Now this is good stuff, however you wouldn't put this in the hands of mum or dad know-nothing. These engines need a warm up before being revved due to piston slap etc. I warm mine up for a few minutes at idle before driving gently until temp guage comes up - light throttle and less than 2500 revs.
After warm up, I challenge anyone to take a ride in my car and tell me 347s don't rev!
