I'm new to the group here, and hope I'm not off topic.
I have a 92 F150 w/300cid and 4AOD. Bought it new, and have 70k on it.
Only thing not straight from the factory are wheels and bed cover. I
love the big 6, but would like to have some decent hp. Since the 6 is
far from a performance engine, there seems to be no aftermarket hp bolt
ons. I have packed away on a stand a 460 and C6 out of a 74 Cougar.
Has anyone here tried to shoehorn one of these big blocks into an F150?
If so, problems (other than emissions)? If not possible, anyone know of
a S Florida shop that can help my 6? I know there's a world of
difference between hopping up a 6 and putting in a 460, but I already
own the 460.

I'm sure someone's tried it. On the plus side, the F250's had this
available with fuel injection (speed density, but still injection) for the
same year of your truck ... you might check the local scrap yards and such,
a wrecked one could be worth its weight in gold to you ... then you could
get the manifold, exhaust manifolds (if you don't run headers), all the
wiring, motor mounts, etc. With enough patience it could even look factory
:) If you have the AOD there will be no, or very few problems putting the
C6 in (as it was also an option on the Fseires), however if you have an
AOD-E I'm not sure it will be as easy since the older tranny doesn't have
any of the electrical hookups to let the computer know what gear its in ...

Hello everyone:

I have to ship a set of 429 heads to Wisconsin and was wondering if anyone
had the weight of the head so I can figure shipping costs.

Just got finished swapping out my 1976 302 for a 1970 351W.. I used
the pulleys off the 302 and everying lined up including the power
steering... Now, my bottom pulley (crankshaft) was a 3 groove set up
for AC (which I don't have).. I did use a 1979 power steering setup
(bracket and pump and it still all lined up ok...).. good luck.
