This is what intend to build!

Can you get me the exact issue and Name of the Mag that contains this article???

I've often contemplated doing this exact same thing for a car project.

Subject: FTE Perf - 428 Cobra Jet

I was going to put a 460 in my 89 F-250 HD, but I have found a 1966 428 cobra
jet block that is in mint condition. I was wondering if I could readily get
parts to rebuild this engine. Also, can I get parts for it if I was to break a
part? Any info is helpful

ye, and yes. but find a tranny that will fit? manual i don't know, but
for a auto tranny, the bolt pattern is different. the older FE will be
more expensive to build than a 460 for a given power rating, but may be
lighter. either one is a good choice, but i feel the 460 is easier to swap
since it was stock in that year truck, and cheaper to build for a given
output.

Depending on what you decide to do I have a set of 428 CJ heads and some =
other stuff taht would complete the assembly. I would sell you the parts=
or I might be interested in buying the block.

By the way -- The is no real difference in the 428 blocks whether it is =
CJ or not they are all the same to my understanding. The only thing that=
makes a 428 CJ is the heads.

E-mail me directly if you want to talk about this some more.

Hey Sleddog. I got this same thing out of my C4 in my Maverick not too long
ago. The seals are getting hard, and it doesn't hole pressure until the
tranny warms up and the seals swell.

Have you tried letting it run for a half hour or so to see if it will move
then? If so, a mere cork and rubber kit might be the thing.

Just a thought,
