    Can the thread "460 Ford???", active circa 6/2013, be revived due to new interest/questions that are appearing on the HAMB?

    I am just finishing the build of an off topic vehicle to enter into Hot Rod Drag Week with one of these engines. All of my life I have built GM drivetrain hot rods. My first big Ford engine project. Big engine, little vehicle, seems like a good combination. It feels good, hooks up and accelerates hard, but I have to wait for the local drag strip to open, to get some real data.

    As a side note, it will be up for sale as I doubt there will be a drag week due to the virus and social distancing.

    All of the photobucket pics of my '46 pickup I had in the original thread got deleted. Here are a few re-posted.

    I seem to recall reading that for real high performance like drag racing you need a reinforced oil pump.

  9. I am a big fan of the FE engines, and although I own a 429 and a couple of 460 engines, (two station wagons and a motorhome), I have never never done anything with them.
    I know from putting a fair number of miles on them, that they are certainly a great engine in stock form.
    All my engines are coupled to C6 trannys, which have also been trouble free.
    I would be interested to see what people are doing with these BBs

  10. Here are the names of a couple of excellent Ford books:
    "Ford Performance", by Pat Gandahl,
    and although this book is not really a builder book:
    "Super 60's Fords", which covers the most powerful Fords ever built,
    by John Smith.
    They are long out of print, but are a treasure trove of information, and are available through Amazon used books.
    I also have another excellent book on the FE series performance engines, which includes all manner of information on blocks, heads, cranks, etc., which I have used as my go-to book.
    There is also a book for the FE, produced by Ford, called "Muscle Parts", which lists all the pieces a person needs to build up any FE.

    This hobby really is a small world. The yellow T in the 429-460 section? The Urich Oil T I restored in '05. I'm comfortable with 385 Fords....

  12. Bummer! Your book had 16 more pages of great information. I am jealous.

    Good bang for the buck engine. The cores are practically free, the stroker kits are quite reasonable with I-beam rods, cast crank your good to over 600 hp. Heres my little "502" stroker.
