    68 xr7

    Hey guys new to the group. I've got a 6.5 390. Will the 6.4 390 parts work for rebuilding my motor?

    I don't get the question, a 390 FE is a 390. Perhaps some auto part store guy decided it's going to be called a 6.4 liter for some inane reason. In any case the Cougar used the same 390FE engine as millions of other Ford and Mercury products. Do the math, it's 6.4 liters (6390.93 to be exact). No one used liters (or the Mercury intentional mis - spelling LITRE) when these cars were new. I think Pontiac at one time called their 389 a 6.4 Liter engine and Mercury just decided to call it what they called it.
