yes after removal of the intake and any related accesories you should be able
to remove the heads with the manifolds.

Try a Metric socket just smaller than the SAE #.  You might even have
to tap it on lightly with a hammer..

Yes!!..

All I can say here is that it is easier to work on it on the bench and a lot
easier on your knuckles but watch your back as they said.  More mechanics
get injured this way that all other ways combined, even just lifting
batteries.

Well it looks like I will be getting my 460 and C-6 from a fellow list
member, better then that I will be getting the whole truck.  It is a 77
F250 2x4,

1. What do I need to do to this motor to make it ""pull!!!!""" my 15,000
lb 5th wheel trailer?  I mean down low, 70 mph on the interstate, up the
mountains etc..  I want my cake and to eat it too.

2.   So it looks like I will be swapping the rear axle into my 77 F150.
What concerns or problems will I have with this swap?

3.  How hard would it be to change the front ends on my 77 F150 to this
77 F250?  Pros and cons?

TIA

PS.. I received many responses, including this one to my paid classified
ad I placed with FTE.  I feel that there isn't a better bunch of people
out there then FTE's list people.  I would rather pay a couple bucks and
place an ad here and get good responses from great people then place it
in some paper or web site where I don't know anyone and could get god
knows what.

It looks like this 77 460 also has the quadrajet, it figures that I wasn't
paying attention to that discussion.  Gary or somebody can you give the low
down on it???  Good, bad, get rid of it, keep it????  TIA

Remove the carb and use bolts on the intake. Lift everything out with a
hoist. BTW, rather than have a shop drill your heads out, there is a process
that can burn out the old bolts without harming the surrounding area. invest
in ARP or stage 8 bolts and use antiseize, then enjoy your headers.

The timing marks may or may not be ok.  You have to match the balancer
to the timing cover, year wise, and the water pump to the cover, year
wise, for everything to work.  Sounds confusing but here's the skinny.
Three bolt balancers had the timing pointer on the driver's side with
the water pump exiting on the passenger side.  With a four bolt
balancer, the water pump should exit on the driver's side with the
pointer being on the passenger side.  So the balancer for this combo
would be marked to match up with where the passenger side pointer is
expected to be.  If you mix and match, who knows what you'll end up
with.

My guess is with an 86 cover, early 70's FOUR bolt balancer, and
drivers side water pump exit, you'll be ok.  I would confirm though by
using the "pull a spark plug, insert a stick, turn motor by hand and
mark balancer" method of timing confirmation.  Just make sure you use a
properly calibrated stick  ;)

As for the pan.  It sounds like a rear sump design.  That means a
timing cover mounted dip stick will not work, there's nowhere for the
stick to go.  Rear sump pans used the block mounted oil dip stick.  You
can  drill your block (a lot of work because I would do it in
combination with a tear down) or figure something else out....  The
rear sump pan should have a sensor in the drivers side of it that will
tell you when you're one quart low.  And that's ok for a level
indicator.  I think I'd start there.  And make sure you have an oil
pressure gauge.

Subject: E.F.I. stumbling

I have a 1993 F-150 with a 302 e.f.i. It`s all stock with 98,000 miles. Since
about 20,000 miles it has developed a stumble. The stumble occurs when you
accelerate after idling for anyting over approx 5 minutes.It feels like a
large hesitation in the fuel delivery.If you shut off and re-start the engine
before accelerating, it does not stumble(almost as if a sensor has been
reset).After driving for a few minutes, everything is fine again until you
sit idle again for several minutes.I`ve changed plugs,wires,cap,rotor and
checked timing and if it was running hot,all was fine.Two dealers could find
nothing wrong and the check engine light does not come on when this occurs.
Also if you just stop for a light/stop sign breifly, it does not happen. Any
help would be very appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Posibly O2 sensor? Im not the greatest with Fords efi stuff, or Id have my
dads 88 E-350 running better.  His truck has been a collection of problems,
each one helping out, even though the onboard diagnostic showed nuthing
wrong. We replaced the coolant temp sensor (not to be confused with the
sending unit for the guage), due to smoke after warmup.  Then we tackled the
rough idle by installing new plugs.  After that it seemed to run ok, but
would hesitate on acceleration, and die at stop lights.  The O2 sensor fixed
the hesitation, and it turned out to be a bad dizzy that was casung it to die
out at lights.  Now my problems are all around keepin both fuel tanks
running.  The rear pump keeps burning up.  But anyhow, I'd go ahead and do
the 02 sensor if you havent already.  Just seems like at an idle the O2
sensor might be over leaning the engine out.  I wish I knew more about these
things, Itd make my job a lot easier.

I would check the fuel filter, run some GOOD Fuel injector cleaner through
it. I would also check the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) voltage and make
sure that it set to no higher than .98 volts. Also...by the way, have you
checked the Air filter lately?
