Subject: FTE Perf - What year 460?

Gotta comment here. Sleddog and Bogginf350 both seem to know a lot more
about 460's than I do, so I'm really enjoying reading all the posts. Please
continue the exchange if you can leave the personal insults out. I've got 4
f250's, from 73 to 84, all with 460's I've rebuilt and I really love the
info. I don't compete with others, I just love to make my own equipment
operate better each time I work on it. I do get a charge from the looks of
bow-tie people, and lately, the pretty new D*dge drivers when I hook up to
a 15,000# goose-neck load of hay or an 18,000# travel trailer, get on the
freeway and run 80mph with them, windows up, A/C wide open, and no movement
of temp gauges (Radiator or Trans), all in a 20 year old Ford truck.
Both of you guys seem to have a heck of a lot of knowledge, so please
continue to enlighten everybody. I know you're both proud of what you've
built and I'm sure they are both geat machines. Think about it and respect
each others accomplishments. You seem to have different approaches to
building the power, that's great, compare and learn, and let the rest of us
continue to pick out good tips from each to make our own a little better
next time. Picking up this kind of info is why I joined these lists in the
first place and continue to sift through 100's of e-mails each day.
Remember, in the end they are both Ford's, running what is now a
dicontinued engine.

PS- Question: new fords with the 7.3 diesel have a 6-speed/overdrive
standard transmission available. How old is this transmission? Was it
available in 98 with a 460 gas engine? Is it made with a standard 460 bell
housing?

Okay guys, hopin for some help on this one ... I've got the sway bars for my
truck all ready to go on, just gotta get some bolts at the store today and
*cringe* drill some holes in the frame to mount it ...

My question is how did the factory deal with the boxed frame ? really long
bolts all the way through or what ? maybe I'll get lucky and find a welded
nut in there somewhere ...

Anyway just wanted to find out how your links were attached to the frame ...

Just my $.02

Are you talking small of large here? This morning I had my anti-sway bars down
and I was installing dual shock hoops on the front. Getting them to line up
after you pull down the anti-sway bar is quite a challenge. This was on a 1988 B
II. 3" James Duff Lift. I had to drill five holes in the frame to mount
everything, three on the passenger side and two on the driver's side.

Re: what year 460's

For good solid info on various Ford 460 heads ,


Go to (Super Ford Magazine) , and request past articles dealing with Ford 460's.
Jan 95

Stock Dove Head Flow Numbers

LIFT Intake CFM Exhuast CFM EX/IN%

.50 34.46 27.35 .80
.100 68.01 56.26 .83
.150 103.94 91.33 .88
.200 138.48 104.72 .76
.250 174.70 118.10 .68
.300 207.28 128.18 .62
.350 230.97 136.37 .59
.400 245.77 141.41 .58
.450 257.61 143.61 .56
.500 268.27 144.56 .54
.550 275.97 145.82 .53
.600 281.30 145.82 .52


These numbers are from SUPER FORD MAGAZINE and are at 28 inches of water.

To determine horse power with air flow data taken at 28 inches of water,
multiply the flow numbers by .257 then by the number of the cylinders.

This is a good base number for what the engine will produce, hp/torque.
