Scales

This is because Fahrenheit is based on a brine scale and the human body. The scale is basically how cold does it have to be to freeze saltwater (zero Fahrenheit) to what temperature is the human body (100-ish Fahrenheit, although now we know that’s not exactly accurate). Fahrenheit was designed around humans.

Celsius and Kelvin are designed around the natural world.

Celsius is a scale based on water. Zero is when water freezes, 100 is when water boils.

Kelvin uses the same scale as Celsius (one degree, as a unit, is the same between the two), but defines zero as absolute zero, which is basically the temperature at which atoms literally stop doing that spinning thing. Nothing can exist below zero Kelvin. It’s the bottom of the scale.

So.
Fahrenheit: what temperatures affect humans
Celsius: what temperatures affect water
Kelvin: what temperatures affect atoms

Why didn’t my science teachers ever see fit to toss off this little fact?

Mine did for Fahrenheit and Celsius, but not Kelvin. (Never knew Kelvin and Celsius shared the same degree)

You think a 442 engine would fit nicely in a 67' Cougar?

Physically? Not sure. Wish I could tell you. What about the 426? It’s smaller and a hemi I believe.

426 Hemi is one of the biggest muscle car engines ever and I’m almost certain it wouldn’t fit. An Olds 442’s 455 might fit in a Cougar, but it’d be a tight fit and some cutting may be required. Might I suggest a 351 Windsor? It would fit, and there’s a large aftermarket for them.
