A stock 410 in 1966 puts out 330 hp and 444 ft. lbs. torque.
Just my $0.02, but I don't know how this could look "kinda funny" in anything.
Or a little Roth if you prefer.
My biggest gripe with the 460 is the valve covers. This helps a lot. Does your friend make the SBF to FE adapters too?
It SURE AS HELL does!
I think I'm going to do this for the drag truck motor...looks way better than the other stuff going...
A few shots of the adapters after I polished them (They don't come that way ). I may be able to get him to come down on the pricing some if he's making a few sets at once.
PS - Heres a shot of a "factory" 2x4 intake I just sold that fit the standard 429-460 eniges. The Blue Thunder versions will work on both the standard port and the SCJ.
i have a question? i just picked up a (385 series) a ford 400 + a c6 tranny, my question is "what are the spec's/ dimension's for it, how much power stock//ftlbs, speed equipment...how much bang for the buck can i get from her"???
she's gettin dropped into my 59' ford f100 shortbed.
Hey MEMPHIS RAT. Did ya have a typo? 400 isn't a 385. It's a Cleveland head engine. 385's are 370-429-460.
Stock, they're dogs after 1970, but it doesn't take much to wake them up - set the timing straight up. Low oil pressure is common to these, but they'll run forever that way.
The 400 is a 335 series btw, but you can find tons of info on them at this link
I love 'em - orphan engines that nobody wants - course I play with flathead V8's too
Thanks Everyone,,The answers and opinions are a great help...
you guys sure know alot about the 460. i just put one in my 57 lincoln. the motor is a 78 out of a f150. i put edelbroke intake with a holley carb on it. mallory dist and painted edelbroke valve covers. i sold the headers it came with. does anyone know if older 429-460 exhaust manifolds should fit mine? im looking at a set for a 69-71 429. will these work?
I have an Edelbrock Performer intake for a Ford 400 that needs a home.. make me an offer..
Yes the early manifolds will fit the ports on the heads. Most interchange. Trouble matching up will be with the later FI heads.
I wonder if you could disguise a 460 as a 390 by changing the valve covers?
The 410 will only need a flywheel only the Cobra jet 428 used a balance weight in front that was actually behind the balancer.
Nope, The exhaust ports give it away.
Sorry, don't quite agree with you on that.
Blue Thunder made two types of intakes - standard and SCJ/CJ
With a little head work with a dremel, you can put a SJC/CJ intake on the regular heads but you can't put a standard intake on SCJ heads, whose ports are much bigger.
Blue Thunder stuff is getting hard to find, and expensive.
Here's a pic of a Blue Thunder intake and Blue Thunder polished ribbed valve
covers on a 429:
Since it was over 3 years ago, my guess is he got it figured out
