Don't be silly. At least you used a Ford for the example and all
Ford trucks use fuel and have to overcome the same problems. I
appreciate the imput but still have one question :-( Have you ever
seen an engine such as the 460 set up with 12:1 compression running a
lean mixture on pump gas so that some measure of economy could be
obtained?

My plan is to run a roller cam, more for the techie aspect than any
expected real gains and roller rockers with larger valves and small
runners and ports with some kind of increased compression for better
economy and performance (efficiency) with relatively high lift,
moderate overlap and duration for low end torque with the hope of
increasing the top end as well. The boys on the bronco list with
some 460 experience seem to like 10.5:1 but they aren't into the
racing angle so may not know your tricks. A Jacobs tech told me he
was running a 12:1 460 on the street with no problems on pump gas so
maybe there's hope yet :-)

I built a stock one with a torque cam and dished, forged pistons and
have been very pleased with it so far. I'm going to build another
one with the stuff mentioned above and expect greater things this
time around so any input on the compression thing with my particular
driving parameters in mind would be appreciated. (78 bronco, daily
driver with good road manners and economy, limited off road but lots
of snow, manual transmission)

1972 was the last "official" year of this from the standpoint of EVERY
truck having the tank behind the seat. But I am looking at a picture of a
1976 F150 4x4 with tanks both behind the seat and under the bed behind the
rear axle. So it looks like sometimes the tank might have been there but I
can't tell you the determining factor. The only thing I can think of is if
somebody wanted an auxiliary tank on a 4x4 and the transfer case was in the
way? Don't know.

Could this possibly be a chassis cab that has had a bed added to it? Or
could this be somebody's way of adding an additional tank? Is the fuel
line coming from the tank rubber or steel? If it's rubber I doubt this is
a factory setup.

The 351M was first available in the trucks in 1977 (FE motors prior to) so
that speaks well for the year. Another way to tell is that in 1977 the
F250 was switched to a low-riding setup with 2-leaf springs. The
1976-earlier F250 4x4's had 6-leaf springs and was quite tall.

I own a '77 F250 4X4 with 8000 plus lbs GVW and the tank is in the cab.
Extremely harsh ride, but will do any reasonable thing you could expect from a
3/4 4X4, and sometimes do something extremely unreasonable. Toughest damn
truck I've ever seen. I also have a friend with a '77 2X4 and the tanks are
between the frame rails. Something to do with GVW I think. Mine has no
pollution equipment at all. The friends has Cat and I believe it also has an
air pump, but not sure about the air pump. Both are 351Ms. I think my truck is
rated at 8000 plus pounds. I'll look it up and forward to you if you wish. I
only have Digest form and only at work and I'm going to Charleston SC
tomorrow, so I'll be out of pocket for a few days.

If you don't purchase the truck, and it isn't too far from me, I might be
interested. Let me know.

ok, this is the way it goes. the ford 460 can run about a half point =
more compression than the bb chevy on the same gas. this means about =
11:1 for pump gas. (cast iron heads and good pump gas!) i was running =
an early one with 11.5:1 with detonation only on a rare occasion, on =
pump gas. idled smooth as glass and pulled 6500 rpm with a mild street =
hyd. cam.

don't run a lean mixture for economy, jet appropriatly for your =
combination but not rich either as cyl. wear increases. my motor =
mentioned above gave 10 mpg about on street with a 600 holley vacuum =
sec, c6 tranny, 3.50 rears, 33" mudders, and a lead foot. i always =
thought it was good economy for a 4x4 that outran several local muscle =
cars and newer mustangs/camaros and turbo sports cars.

now, if you want to spend some cash, alum. heads will allow a higher =
comp ratio without as much possibility of detonation. Blue Thunder =
makes a set that will increase performance and economy drastically while =
allowing the higher comp. ratio you want or maybe more.

and remember that a well polished combustion chamber will yield much =
better results. the small ports and bigger valves are a way to go, 1973 =
police heads had the stock ports and valves sizes between the CJ and =
stock sizes. these worked great. even the CJ size valves and a good =
port-polish job supposedly gives about 65 hp over stock. the work done =
to the heads makes a big difference in both economy and HP. this =
includes the valve job, combustion chamber, bowls and ports.

also, a RV type cam and high compression will lead to detonation faster =
than a high duratiun long overlap cam and high compression. this is =
because of the dynamic compression being so low with a larger cam at =
slower engine speeds.

currently i am running a 460 with a hair over 9:1, about 280 deg. adv. =
dur., 536 lift, with stock heads mildly ported on the exhaust side ( =
just grinding out the bug lump should give about 25 hp if done poorly) =
stock valves sizes. power? all you'd want from 3000 to 5000 rpm. =
economy? well, my torq conv. stalls at 3000 so with 3.50 gears, i don't =
get good mpg unless i run about 75 mph and then it seems to give about =
10-12. but tooling around the fields or whatever in 4wd low it drops to =
3-5 with my heavy foot.

i am sure this motor would give 15 mpg with an RV converter and a =
smaller carb like a 650. but me, i am going to build the motor to use =
the converter instead, i need more power ~tim allen grunt~!!!!

did i forget anything?

I don't remember a rubber thing like that but it's been a while since
I had one apart. The valve body should come off in one piece with no
surprises but don't take it apart without a schematic in front of you
to get the check balls back in the right place!!! There is no way
to look at the thing and determine with any certainty where they go
and they will fall out when you take it apart since you will
undoubtedly have it upside down when you do (Murphey's Law).

I split the cases on a 74 TM 400 once without a book which told me
which side to lay it on so all the gears don't fall out. All the
gears, bearing, pushpins, springs and levers fell out, does that tell
you anything?

Did you mean "Properly"? I've read articles which stated that the
humps are the single most restrictive part of the stock heads and the
exhaust, because of this is the only part that really needs much
attention except for possibly using larger intake valves etc..

I'm sure my engine doen't put out anywhere near 500 hp and it's still
scary but it looks like it doesn't take much tweaking to get that
with the 460 so I guess I'll be looking into the new NV 6 speed with
600# input torque rating :-)

I really only regret two things about my first attempt:
I didn't have the crank ground and replace the front seal sleeve.
I couldn't find a forged flat top piston for it back then.

My next one should be really fun since all the parts are out there
now, I just wish there were more roller cam options for low rpm
torque. There are tons for the 351M starting at 1500 rpm but only a
few starting at 2500 rpm for the 460 that I've found so far. Most
roller cams are made for hot rods I guess.

I have a '64 292. I am having a difficult time locating information on this
engine. I know that the 272 and 312 are of the same family, but that is
about all I have found out.

Some of the questions I have are; can I replace the solid lifters with
hydraulic and which ones will work?, What about upgrading the ignition to a
breaker-less ignition?

Other questions; Where can I get inside door handles without getting
ripped-off? also brake and clutch pads (for the pedals), and chrome bits
for the body.

The truck is a '64 F100 Custom Cab, long bed. Quite a work truck.

Hello I was wondering if anyone could tell me where I could locate the VIN

it would possibly help me identify what year the truck is I am thinking it

Also I think that this trucks engine is different from the original is
there any way I can prove this. Any help that can be given will be greatly

There is one quite good book of Y-Block engines: "Ford Y-Block, How to
repair and rebuild the 1954-62 Ford OHV V-8" by James Eickman. The last
year is 62 for cars and 64 for trucks. There was also 239 and 256 Y-Blocks.

You can't replace solid lifters with hydraulic ones. Upgrading the ignition
to breaker-less is possible, I am planning to do it also.

I think that door handles and brake and clutch pads are with quite same
price with all part suppliers. And what I know there is some chrome body
bits available, not all. I would like to find F-O-R-D letters above grille

No the exhaust manifolds will not work on the 429 but manifolds off a 460
will. The modifieds manifolds will work only on 351C and 400.

The supplier is approving the announcement that I'm going to make
to the group. At that point, full details, including how to
get a catalog (online) will get sent to the group. Their a little
slow to respond to email, took a week for the last message I sent
them, got a response Sunday. Hopefully, by Friday I won't have
to keep anyone in the dark about it any longer.


Note: by approving, I do not mean editorial, they just want to
make sure I have the order form description and company details
correct.

There was a 75 running around town that had three tanks in the truck.
It had the two under the bed and one behind the seat. The one behind
the seat had a valve that let it drain into the front tank.
