1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Picked up a Ford 460 complete motor and trans for a project car I was gonna work on. Don't have enough time in the foreseeable future and getting rid of it all. Didn't know if anyone on here had an interest before I just scrap it, btw I live in Michigan.

    Thanks for reading, Darryl Hayes

    Hey Butch, things are pretty good. Just waiting for this weather to break to start shooting and fishing again. How are things going your way?

    Norman, not sure but I'll check into today. FYI, the motor came out of a 1979 Lincoln Mark V, 60 k on motor before it was pulled out.

    Those are bad azz motors if they have the dove heads and are rebuilt by a guy who knows the motors. You can't beat cubic inches for power. Had one rebuilt and installed it in a 77 f 250 factory high boy and it would try to tear the truck up. The thing was a beast and could not get stuck no matter how you tried.

    I'm not a Ford guy but doesn't matter if it's GM, Ford or Mopar:

    "There is no replacement for displacement"

    Always loved those big Cube Motors. They just have that sound and the torque is crazy.

    LOL, yup.

    If I had it, I'd be looking for something like a beater Pinto or Mustang II to drop it in for a bracket racer. It's amazing what a stock 460 will do in a light car.

    There is a substitute for cubic inches, its called a air compressor. The new indy engine specs. are 2.4L (146 cu. in.) running 45-55 psi turbo will pump out 700 ponies. Thats a little 4 banger.

    As far as the Big Blocks go, the Bow ties and Mopar ruled (well, as far as the small blocks go too I guess). You can make the Ford go-go, but it'll cost you, but speed is just a question of money.

    The first thing that I would do to a 460 is replace the timing gear deal and advance the timing. Then if money allows, cam it up, put a good intake and carb on there, boost up the compression, port the heads, put hookers on there and then you got something....maybe.

    The C-6 tranny is pretty good....comparable with GM's turbo 400.

    OH, and I'm pretty sure that the standard issue on the 79 Mark was a 400 Modified, not the 460.

    JMHO

    Joe, I believe you are correct. The Cartier, and Bill Blass editions that I know of came standard with the 460.

    Western, that is a beauty! What kind of numbers does that baby do?

    Western Shooter is actually the Green Hornet. I can see the Black Beauty parked behind his Cobra.
