Ford Sidevalve is an engine from Ford Motor Company. The engine has its origins in the 1930s Ford Model Y (1932 to 1937). The early engines were very basic and did not even have a waterpump. A water pump was added in 1953 for the 100E models. The Sidevalve engine was used in many smaller Fords as well as farm vehicles, commercial vehicles and a marine version in boats. Production of the engine was stopped in 1962.
