I'd like to know what, if any differences there are in the blocks between the 72-86 300 and the 87-95 300. My brother in law has a rebuilt one pulled out of an 80's F150 and I was wondering why the block wouldn't be compatible with the newer generation.

Knock sensor fitting maybe?

I think it's when they went to EFI, so the newer engines (may) not have a fuel pump mounting provisions.
As far as I remember, no roller cam, so that's not the issue.

Everything I can find points to the fuel pump issue.
Also found this:

More entertaining than helpful, but...

I have seen some cool stuff done with these.

I will look when I get home, but I think the original Ford Off Highway Parts book has a section on the Ford Six's.

The link below is to a well documented 300 six, using 3 cut up Boss 302 (Cleveland) heads welded together to make a Boss 300 inline six.

Super cool, a bit crazy, but cool nonetheless.

I pulled a head off of a '87 Econoline van (FI motor) years ago to replace the warped head on my F150.  I know it has a smaller, heart-shaped combustion chamber. I wound up using the whole top of the motor, minus the FI intake.  I used the split exhaust manifolds and pipes up to the cats for a true dual exhaust setup, a Offy 4-bbl intake and Clifford cam.  That thing would roll out of the gate in 1st like nobody's business.  GREAT torque engines.

My first truck was an '80 f250 with a 300 straight six. All the power I needed, and it couldn't be killed. 1st gear was a granny gear and it was impossible to stall it. I could walk faster. It was really funny on the days I'd get stuck in snow.......I could open the door and push, and when the truck finally gained traction and 'took off', I could just hop back in.

Those were the days........

The only issue I ever had, was the engine's rear oil seal had worn out, so it dripped at the back. I often thought about about getting the Offy intake so i could put a 4bbl on it, bt never committed.
