ive heard horror stories about the 460's being one of the hardest engine swaps in any for any Furd truck from the 90s, even worse than diesel. Now i am a believer. finding parts is like finding parts for a G3 a total PITA if even possible!

Im helping my unce put a new 460 in his 96 F250, the old 460 original engine has about 450,000 miles on it or more (had 400,000 before the odometer quite working and was driven daily 3 years after that) well 500,000 miles of beting on a truck and poor matinince from the Previous owner does damage.

see what i mean. someone wasent thinkin with thier dipstick! to top it off a freeze plug fell out on my uncle and he wanted a new engine anyway Very Happy so he raced home and fried it. lol amazingly i could turn the motor by hand very easily!

making it worse is the winter weather and no garage plus this is being done on gravel! so plywood is under the truck for the hoist to move! hahaha motor is in now and tomorrow morining im going over to hopefully get the pullys and all on and in a few days (fri goal) start it up with the open manifolds becuase the exhaust was so corroded on we had to cut it off.

just to clean the parts that are beinge reusedd...pulleys, intake manifold, valve covers ect ect, we used 2 gallons of carb cleaner, 3 gallons of gasoline and about 20 cans of brake clean. and learned that the compressed air for cleaning keyboards sprayed across a propane heater makes a very good flamethrower Very Happy

I work at my bros auto shop, we had a chevy 305 come in one time for intake gaskets, pulled the intake and the bottom of the intake was still imprinted in the sludge that was built up inside it. Crazy how people dont take care of their stuff and then wonders why it breaks

Yea, I had a Camaro with a 305 that was like that. I also had a 77 LTD II 302 that was similar, and I cleaned it up as well as I could (without a rebuild) so I could drop it in my 68 Stang conv. while I rebuilt the 289. Everything was good until the first longer drive in the car, and then the oil light came on. We parked it and called AAA for a tow the 10 miles home. Dropped the pan to find big clumps in the bottom of the pan and pick-up, and as a matter of fact the fresh oil in the engine did a great job of cleaning. After cleaning the pan we were good to go and never had any problems. As we were not beating on the engine, and shut it off at the first sign of trouble (and the removable cross-member) we were quickly back on the road.

Finding parts for 460's isn't hard. My father's building one for his '56 F100 and we've found every part that we've needed to build it up. They share a few parts with the 427/28/29 engines. At least the heads anyway.

Sounds like every auto parts store here. The manager at the local autozone has been trying to hire me for years now! Haha. I've had to bring so many parts back that now they just let me go back and get the part myself.
