Is it True That the HSC Engine was Derived from the 3.3 Inline Six?
I would like to know whether or not the HSC fours were in any way related to the old 3.3L "Thrift-Power" or "Falcon" inline six. Can anyone conjure any verifiable sources to confirm or debunk this? WikiPro1981X (talk) 18:13, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
The only thing I can tell off the top of my head is that they have the same bore, 93.47 mm (3.680 in). So it seems likely at least. Mr.choppers | ✎ 01:40, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
It is also the fact that both the HSC and the 3.3L had overhead valves (which distinguishes the HSC 2.3L from the Lima 2.3L which was SOHC) and, on the early HSC engines, the single-barrel carburetor. WikiPro1981X (talk) 02:41, 12 December 2015 (UTC)
