I'm very interested in this new Ford engine even though I'm not that much of a Ford fan. I guess I like more simplicity in engine design and is probably why I still drive two older Chevy trucks.

While they may not make the most power, they get the job done.

I like how Mazda did it. They seem to have figured out turbo/DI, "fill for life" transmission fluid, etc. as well.

On their Skyactive engines, Mazda uses a class 3 lever (similar to BMW's 14,000rpm S1000RR design), and a low-friction roller cam follower. But the pièce de résistance is the hydraulic lash adjuster (HLA) at the fulcrum.



FYI, that's the exact same way Ford did it on the Modular.


Same as the Pentastar v6 as well. It’s a great system imo.


The end-pivot valvetrain with stationary lash adjuster at the fulcrum is the most popular type in the world. It has pretty much taken over from the direct-acting bucket lifter style. It has advantages of being able to package a roller cam follower for low friction, lower engine height because the cam follower is next to the valve stem instead of on top of it, and ability to achieve higher valve velocity than the direct-acting slider follower style.

cheap - fast - reliable
pick any two smile
Truck engines are not designed for maximum power... may be an obvious statement but needed to be said. They are designed to balance durability, fuel efficiency, torque (useful output for the application), and ease of ownership... all while being fairly cheap to manufacture.
I also prefer the older SBC engines over Ford's offerings, but they all have certain strengths.

Except your 4.3 is technically a SBC 350 with the first two cylinders cut away. I mean that is literally what the 4.3 was designed from.

I have had traditional SBCs and 4.3. I will take the an LS based engine everyday. Cheap to maintain, better power, better MPG with less problems.

Yep, the LSx engines are a much better engine than anything based on the old SBC.
