Nose cone off the starter? I have a old starter that don't work for my C-6
which went to my 79 ford van. I could see about ripping off the end of it
and shipping it to you if you want. The nose cone you are talking about is
like a quarter sphere that is hollowed out? That is the description of it
from memory I haivnt looked at it in almost a year.

I'm having some trouble decifering the serial numbers on a 429 a friend of
minw has. Can anyone please tell me what he has? The serial numbers on the
block are 429 70 6 289-2549 0-A K813-A and he has a new set of heads with
the numbers O8VE-E and 8H29 any help at all here would surely be appreciated.

I'd bet that O in O8VE is actually a D as in D8VE indicating a 78 style head
...

I don't know these 429/460's very well, but I thought they had quit making
the 429 by then, though the large cars (indicated by the V?) may have been
using them still ... at any rate I'd suspect a low compression engine or an
earlier engine with low compression 460 heads on it ... probably put there
to make it run the gas of today by a previous owner...

Just my $.02

Speaking of these engines..

I just bought a '68 lincoln with 462 engine. Is this the same as 460?
Sticker on air cleaner actualy says 460, but the owners manual says 462.
It has 10.25:1 compression and runs fine on 87 octane. Maybe PO retarded
the timing, I'd have to look at that. I'm amazed though at how nice it
runs, cold or warm you hardly notice it idling, no vibrations or
anything. Also it starts without gassing it or anything, just turn the
key.

Anyway does anyone know more about the 462? Would they run on 87 with
stock timing or would it be retarded?

I believe the 462 is totally different and prior to the 429/460 385 series. I know production of the 429 started for Ford vehicles in '68 but am not sure about Lincoln's start date. Maybe the wrong owner's manual? Get a head casting number and you can be sure of what it is.

There are still a bunch of original 429/460 T-Birds and Lincolns with 11.3:1 C/R running around on pump gas. I'd think that if the timing had been retarded, it wouldn't idle as smoothly as you describe.

The best source for this ID would have been The Ford V-8 Workshop website, but the owner recently took it off the web.

I also just noticed the timing according to the book is 6 BTDC. But the
engine decal says it's 10. I'm really starting to wonder what motor I am
dealing with. Hope the guy didn't change anything to it - probably not.
He said it used to be his grandma's, and had the documents to back that
up. Grandma's don't usually do much to cars :-) Only put about 7000 miles
on in the last 20 years.

Which years did they make those engines? Would be awesome to have! I'd
have to check the timing to make sure.

I know this has been said before - but what's the easiest way to check
what engine you have? You say the head casting numbers, but can you see
them without taking the engine apart?

Maybe it's just like you say, they had some old owners manuals lying
around and just put this with it to (not) match. Although I must say all
the pictures look exactly like the way the car is.
