Friends,
   Could someone tell me the difference between a 76 460 and a 95 460? I can
buy either one for my 78 4x4. Which one?

Anybody know a place to get reasonably priced 33" tires? Reasonably priced
is a euphemism for *cheap*.  I need four good tires to dress up a truck I'm
going to immediately sell. It has 31" with fairly good tread now, but
they're kinda dry rotted and have a tendency to deflate. I'd feel a lot
more comfortable sending it down the road with better tires, plus I believe
the cost can be offset by an increase in the sale price with good rubber.

I certainly appreciate any input.

well if your talking complete engines, the 95 will have to be fuel injected.
No manifold will fit those heads that accepts a carb that I know of.

Darrell, how ya doin'??

Kevin K (Sleddog) and I had a discussion going about the late 460 heads
a couple of years ago, I think you were on the list at that point, the heads in
question are the E5TE(??) heads with the really small ports, I seems that
Ford cast those heads combining the earlier castings (big port) with the new
shaped intake port.  So with a serious porting the flows could approach the
flow numbers of a stock CJ head. Offy was casting up a manifold for those
heads with the small ports, I don't know if they still are, but I have seen
a couple at various swapmeets...

The '76 will be internally balanced, where the 95 won't be, the heads
are remarkably restrictive in the 95, although Offenhauser made a
manifold for the E5xx heads, I don't know if it'll work on such a late model.
The E5xx head can be ported to nearly CJ size, if you want to spend the
money, (about $1000).  The best bet is the '76, replace the timing set with
one for the '70 460, a set of headers, and tweak the carb, you'll be very
happy....

When did ford start using those heads, when the 460 went EFI? I assume
78 460 heads are substantially better than 95 heads?? Can the EFI
manifold be ported to match a set of late 70's heads?

Subject: Slow Weekend so.....
Date: Sat, 10 Feb 2001 21:26:51 -0800

Well the weekend started a couple of days early I guess based on the list
traffic:-)  We had a real Michigan winter day Friday....went from just
freezing on Thursday to 52 on Friday afternoon and rained cats and dogs all
day then about 6 pm the temps started dropping and went down 20 degrees in 2
hours to 32 and then on down to 20 over night.  Been in the low 20's all day
:-)  Hardly any snow left, just a few piles where we piled it up around the
driveways.  I actually watched it play out on the Weather channel and the
prediction was spot on in every way.  It's amazing that they can predict it
now so well just based on long data management and trend analysis etc....

Anyway, the retirement is going well but there are things we must learn
about our finances.  Just as I was about to give up on the funds I "Assumed"
would arrive on time my federal tax refund showed up (which I was not
expecting, who says prayer doesn't work? :-)) and I have a promise for the
money Ford owes me for my moonlighting jobs (which I was expecting sooner)
and then there's the 2/3 portion of my profit sharing I will get for the
last time in March so I will again be on top of things but this time I'm
going to stay there :-)  Take a hint from me, try to live on your retirement
for a year and put every other penny you get in the bank before you retire
so you can "Safely" see if you can manage it.  I knew I could "Learn" to
manage it but also knew there would be some "Kinks" to work out (didn't
think they would come so soon though :-)).  I believe we have it well under
control now.....finally :-)  I must say though, even when I feel poor I'm
still happy I did it :-)  Very happy :-)  Never look back as they say :-)

That little transfusion of funds got me fired up again about the bronco
project.  Hope to be seeing some new parts in the mail shortly :-)  Course
that also means I now have the funds to buy materials to finish some house
projects too......."Yes Dear...." :-))

Subject: Cold weather, blown starter, and I'm happy?!?!


After months of being kind of flakey and me praying for it to wait, the
starter in the 4x4 finally croaked on me Friday morning. And all I could do
was laugh at it. It didn't die in the driveway at my apartment or the
parking lot at work. Nope, it croaked while parked inside the double,
heated garage at my new house, the day after I took possession! Having
changed starters in the driveway (multiple times, in the snow) and in the
parking lot at work, it's rather strange to be looking forward to changing
it. Just so I have even my fun, I bought a garden hose and some degreaser -
there's a drain in the garage floor almost right under the engine! Seeing
as I'll be warm while doing the job, I may as well stay relatively clean
too! :-)

Granted, my finances are tapped out pretty good and I'll be freaking when I
see how much it costs me to run that garage heater (it's natural gas) but
it's great to have your own house. I'm also thankful to still have the 2WD
truck. Not only is it easier to cope with a dead truck when you have a
spare but it gets a lot better mileage than the 4x4. Granted, my neighbours
are probably going to dislike those headers and turbo mufflers. Guess I
should go to work for 9am instead of 7! :-) A snowplow for the 4x4 is
starting to look appealing...it's a might big driveway - I figure with the
mirrors pulled in, I can park 6 trucks in 3 rows down the length of it.
This winter is almost over but next year I don't think I'll be wanting to
shovel it.

Given that I'm going to have to yank that 351M out of the 4x4 this spring,
I'm a super happy guy to finally have a garage!

On snow removal.  A plow for the truck is nice.  You can nock out the drive
quickly, stay warm and hire your services out to your neighbors for extra
income (or give it away to bank some good will for those noisy trucks ;-) ).

A 2 stage 5 horse snow blower would be what I consider a minimum purchase.
By minimum I mean entirely adequate but absolutely no less.  MTD makes a
very good unit.

If you have a fairly large lawn as well I would recommend a Case or Ingersol
(same thing) garden tractor.  Hydrostatic drive and available hydraulic pto.
They have the versatility to mow the lawn, till the garden, blow the snow,
shred/chip yard waste and with a blade you can move dirt or slushy
un-blowable snow.  Also since you use the tractor all year long it runs
better all year long.

I'm going to say about '85, I don't think the injection manifolds
have enough meat in them to port match them... I'm going to have

John, on my bronco I used 3/8" line all the way from the pump to the inlet
of the filter on the carb, no rubber anywhere.  Auto parts has both kinds of
filters so you can buy a filter with the 3/8 threaded inlet instead of the
hose nipple.  I bent it to fit snugly around all the features of the engine
and be out of the way for the dizzy etc. and I like it very well.  The only
advantage I've found to using rubber gas line in the engine compartment is
to reduce Vapor Lock induced by heat.  The rubber tends to insulate it a
little better than steel line but you can insulate the steel line too if
vapor lock is a problem.  In my van I actually routed the steel line up the
firewall above the engine and connected rubber at the firewall and made a
loop above the engine so liquid fuel would be gravity fed to the carb and a
pool of liquid would always be there to feed it.  Pretty drastic but it
worked:-)

My neighbor has one and I am envious :-)  He has every toy known to man to

engine.  Does quite a bit of work for him (he believes that running it
constantly is good for it too, as you say :-))  He's retired and you can

not the best way to do it for sure.  I actually moved more stone in my drive
than he did using a shovel and rake :-)  My daddy taught me how to do things
the old fashioned way :-)) (but I cheat a lot :-)  The older one gets the

an issue when leveling one's drive way :-)  Get a insulated holder and mount
it on the tractor, slap a beer in there and a wide brimmed hat on your head
and play......

Vapor lock never has been a problem for me. I think I will try Bob's loop
first since it is the easiest. If I don't get satisfaction from the loop, I
will convert to all metal line. That brings up the next question: I have the
original 2 barrel carb on the 351m. How do I change the nipple fitting to a
female threaded fitting other than a short piece of hose? I know one
alternative: put a Quadrajet on it. Hmm....

Do the email lists have searchable archives? I can't seem to find
them and couldn't find anything on the forums. I know this has
been covered before, but was trying to find out if POR 15 is as
good as the manufacturer says it is.

Thanks,
Virgil

I was told that in 73 Ford retarded the cam by 3 degrees but have since been
told on various lists that the retardation could be as much as 8 degrees.
The pre-73 timing sets are zero timing.  They retarded the cam by moving the
keyway in the crank gear on the later ones so you can easily convert to zero
just by switching and if you really want to play with it, get the roller
chain type.  Most of them come with multiple keyways so you can tune it.

It was done for emission purposes so you can only guess that it was not a
good thing for performance.  I don't really know what difference it makes
but, again, have been told it's significant.

Does the 2v have the internal, screw in filter?  If so you can get one that
will work for the 3/8" tubing.  The Qjet will require a new manfold as well
or a cheap fix using an adapter plate.  I personally don't like the
adapters.  I feel they restrict the flow too much to get full benefit from
the larger carb.  It could actually save you some gas though due to the
smaller primaries which do have decent flow with an adapter :-)

If its anything like the 400 in a 78 I disassembled, I noticed that the PO
had slightly bent the nipple on the filter itself about 30 to 40 degrees to
help lessen the bend in the rubber hose.  Thats such a tight bend Im almost
sure ford had a special formed hose for that area.  I know bending the filter
seems a lil hokey, so its your call.  Seemed like an easy solution to the
problem though.

Everyone who has used it says it's better than S** so I would guess that
it's pretty good.  I plan to try it on a frame I will be rebuilding as well
as the under body of the truck when it's repaired.

They say it has to be covered by regular paint though to protect it from UV
light, just like most epoxys

BTW, most tuning gurus seem to like the idea of advancing the cam a little
which opens the valves a little sooner in both the Exhaust/intake and
power/exhaust transition strokes and closes them earlier on the compression
and power strokes.  My initial guess would be to expect better midrange with
this setup but not really sure.

I hope it is great stuff just painted the 292 motor with it and am going to
use the manifold paint on the headers, those I have talked to say it works
great  just read and follow all instructions. and only take out of the can
what you need and don't put it back in. seal cans with plastic and then put
lids back on them    like I said read them all.
