Automotive journalist and racer Evan Smith, alongside Brian Wolfe, the former director of Ford Racing, continue their deep dive into Ford’s new 7.3L Godzilla engine which will power the 2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup (and untold numbers of future hot rods and race cars).
In today’s video, these two dissect and explain the engine’s variable displacement oil pump, as well as cover the Ford 7.3L’s entire valve train, including the camshaft, hydraulic lifters, the 3/8″-diameter push rods, 1.8:1-ratio rocker arms, valves (2.17″ intake; 1.67″ exhaust), and valve springs.
In case you missed it, we shared the first three Ford 7.3L videos made by Smith and Wolfe for Smith’s excellent REVan Evan YouTube channel. If you’re interested in this new monster engine from Ford (and who wouldn’t be?) we strongly encourage you to explore all of the videos and subscribe to Smith’s channel for future videos, which are likely to include 7.3L engine builds and performance upgrades.
Today’s video opens with Wolfe pulling apart the oil pump to show us how it works, before taking us through the various valve-train components.
