    Default 1954 mercury flathead

    I'm picking up a 54 mercury monterey this week. I was told it has a flathead v8 and transmission in it. How do I identify what the transmission and engine are? I saw that the 54's came with a 256 y-block... are these desirable engines?

    Unless someone put it in there or they had a lot of pull with the dealer, it should be a Y block of some sort. Short of pullig the head and measuring the bore and stroke, I dont know if any real way to tell Y blocks apart, sorry.
