    My 460 Build

    Right,

    I've finally got off my fat a*se and taken some pics of the pile of bits that I generated over xmas.
    What we have here is the new engine that is destined for my minor, as I had to sell the viper motor due to lack of work, unemployment etc etc.
    What we have in the pics is a 460 BBF out of an econoline camper. The camper was relieved of it's motor in favour of an 700 hp ex drag motor in it to do the camper lands speed record (I Know, don't ask....)

    Hey Tony,

    Weather has fooked things up but it should be done this week. Hotrodguy is lending me his stand too, just trying to work out how to post pics without them being thumbnails.

    Thanks for the steel BTW, owe you a beer (or two) :-)

    The late 80's engine has a slightly higher deck hieght and large CC'c in the heads, so a pair of 1970 DOVE C heads have been sourced as they are higher compression.


    The head at the top is the late 80's one and the lower one is the DOVE head. You can see the exhaust ports on the DOVE's are larger and better flowing (only just) but these are getting ported.



    This is one of the pistons, huge relief in them, anyone fancy a bath!!

    I`ve read your interest in the 400m rebuild and felt it should be said they are different series engines to the 460. 429 & 460`s are 385 series big blocks.The 400m , 351m and 351c are of the Cleveland family of engines, 335 series engines and are all small blocks.The 400m is often referred to as a big block but it`s not.About the only parts the two different series of engines can share is the dizzy. The 427 & 428 are different again and are FE engines. I`m sure I`m teaching my grandmother to suck eggs but thought it should be said for those that didn't know, especially as the two builds are running together.

    It's at mine now but yes.



    Paddy,

    Yes I know, but things like the set up and cam assembly, rockers are very similar (borrowed a great book off Wayne, How to rebuld your ford V and it lists all the similaries (albiet size obviously)



    Steve, soon, not as soon as I'd like but soon
