We put together a strong running but mild 460 a while
back that runs any gas you want to run and makes all
kinds of power for an '84 F250 4X4.

We used the Silv-o-lite hypereutectics and came up at
8.4 to 1 and a Wolverine Blue racer RV-type(same as a
Mellings) cam. It was quite impressive, and is so
quiet you can hardly hear it run. I can't remember
part #'s, but your machinist should be familiar with
the product lines. Don't go overboard with the cam.
The small one with the low CR pistons does well in a
truck and makes torque that only a few engines can
even dream of. If you go with more CR then you'll
need a little more overlap to keep it from building
too much cylinder pressure down low and ping.

A mild 460 is a strong engine, I'm still an FE man all
the way, but this engine is a real work horse. When
you get into building one, you'll see there's not a
frail bone in it's body. Heavy though(they out weigh
an FE by at least 100 lbs), we had to put a block
under it to keep it from killing the engine stand when
we left it mostly assembled overnight. There was an
audible "whew" from both the engine stand and cherry
picker when he put that engine back where it belonged.
Would have swore I heard a groan from the truck,
though :-)

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Re: Zero Oil Pressure

Thanks for all of the comments and advice about my trucks oil pressure
scare. Problem solved. It WAS the oil pressure sending unit. I think that
I must have had 10 diferent people (none on this list) tell me that the
sending unit is either Good or Bad and that it will either read correctly
or not at all. I just want to go on record that the sending unit CAN have
an intermittent problem. I diagnosed the problem by running the engine till
the pressure seemingly dropped and then yanked the sender and put on a
actual pressure guage.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - 5-Speed manual transmission swap

Can anyone tell me if the later model 5-speed truck transmission that Ford
uses was ever used behind a 429/460 or a 351M? I have toyed with the idea
of swapping my 4-speed for a C-6 for a long time but it would be a very
costly, labor intensive venture. So, I am considering just going with a
better manual transmission and possibly a hydraulic clutch. Has anyone else
ever tried this?

Denny,

Jim Osborn Repops makes a very complete line of decals for all makes and
models
of cars and trucks. BUT, I have searched my JOR catalog with no luck on a
72 360 FE
emissions decal. I guess they have not started making them yet......

Timing is 6 degrees BTDC if I am not mistaken. Hope it helps.

If someone really wanted to provide a great service to fellow 72 FE owners,
(and other years too)
they could take a very clear photo of their very nice 72 FE sticker on the
drivers side valve cover
and mail it to Jim Osborn Reproductions so he could make a reproduction
sticker.....I think they are
safety orange in color if memory serves.

I noticed while searching his catalog, several engine decals from various
years are missing
from the truck line.......do we need to start gathering pics of original
stickers and see what he might do
for us???

If I make a list of those absent from his catalog and post to the group, I
will be happy to contact him and see what he will do for all years and
engines he is missing.....it is worth a try. Whadda ya think?? I'll start
on a list tonight.

Although I would still like to replace it (age and all) and though I haven't

the ignition switch.. I was driving the other day and notices all my gauges
quit working, so I jiggled the ignition and they can back on.. I stopped to

pictures of them. I'm especially interested in if
they are just like the ones I have that don't fit very
well. If I could have a set that gets away from the

Last month there was a thread about clutch fork clips. Today I was

clip styles. One looks like a belt loop, with the fork spring looking
like a money clasp and is inserted through the loop. The second style is
solid with a pair of dog ears on the sides.
Which applications get which style? Is one newer?

From your stable of Fords I firmly believe you when you say you were on #1.
The outer ring on the balancer sometimes walks around, as the rubber belt
that separates the outer ring from the inner body will lose it's bonding and
allow slipage. I have been forced to relocate TDC on the outer ring. Pull
#1 plug, use a dowel or something that is not too likely to stay in the
cylinder or scratch it. Take the distributor cap off and rotate engine in
the normal direction until the distributor rotor starts coming up on #1
cylinder. Then use the dowel in contact with the piston and determine when
the piston has stopped raising. You may have to rock the crank back and
forth a few times but you can fairly precisely make a new mark on the outer
ring just under the timing pointer. That mark will be TDC and you can throw
in a 10 BTDC by just eye balling it. Now you have something to go on, unless
your balancer is in really bad condition it should be accurate for a little
while. If you determine the outer ring has walked, it probably is a good
idea to keep and eye on it, they can come apart. If you do a lot pulling at
full throttle replace it as your crank may break. Good Luck

KIRK,

As a former battery salesman for Interstate Batteries, I will tell you that
you are not having any real problem. Another side to this is that stock
in-dash volt meters are notoriously inaccurate.

Your checking with full load on is a good thing. At idle voltage[with a
digital volt meter] should be 13.5 to 14.2 volts. Unless you are having a
starting problem, I would not worry.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - 302 oil fouling problem FOUND

Thanks for all the suggestions about my '73 302 oil fouling problem. On
number 8 cylinder, the fouling problem was caused by an e.g.r. valve that
had turned into o.r. ( oil recircling valve "). It seems after 200k
miles, that there is enough oil going out of the tail pipes, that it was
running through the e.g.r, into the intake and fouling number 4 and
number 8. However, all does not end well. I have absolutely NO
compression on number 4. The story goes as follows. One day truck runs
great, next day the distributer springs break and the plastic cam shaft
timing sprocket explodes. Thats right! 200k miles on a nylon timing
sprocket. Thats one for record books. Anyway, I replace all of the
offending parts, fire it up, and it only runs on two cylinders. Right
now number 8 is back to working, but of course number 4 is as dead as
nails. My theory is a stuck valve. My question is this is. Will any
damage be done by driving this as a v-7 until I can fix it? My '68 f-100
302 still has a funky head problem, and my '71 D*dge Dart Convertible
has no top. ( It snowed a little today. ) I also work and go to college
and finals are coming up. Since I am a little busy, can my drive it
with my bible and her cell phone in it?
