Correct on the T-case!

The 205 will work with just about any rearend you want to make a
driveshaft for :)

Really I have seen them drive 1/2 ton axles all the way up to the 2 1/2
ton jobs.

You are right! I have a 400 in my 78 Bronc' and I am moving to
the AOD setup. I may be mistaken, but I thought the 390 had the
same bolt pattern.

I don't think you'll be able to find an AOD with a bellhousing that will
fit an FE, will you? I think the biggest thing (from the factory) in front
of an AOD will be the 351 Windsor.

William: I have a 67 mustang with a C6 and a 428. The C6 from my
mustang is not the same as the C6 that would bolt to a 351/400/460. The
housing is more rounded than the late model C6's which have the "tall"
housing.

Subject: RE: 351M to 460 swap

if you can find the parts, swap pans. use one fromn econoline 460. make
sure you get the dipstick and tube for it and block of the old dipstick
hole in the timing chain cover. i did not swap pans, but my front axle
never comes close to the pan. i will be changing it over winter i think.
i hope to do some dirt drags next year and don't want to starve the motor
of oil as a front sump allows the pump to become uncovered under hard
acceleration. oh yeh, check to make sure the stick won't in any way get
close to the crank.

i understand that even in 77 a 460 was an option, but i have never seen one
that is factory, has anyone else?
one piece of advice you probobly already know, is make sure you can lift
the motor high enough to get it in/out! i borrowed a picker from a local
company (OK 4WD, stewartsville NJ) and even after putting 28" tires with
almost no air pressure in them on the front i almost didn't get past the
radiator support. i tried with the hood on, but i needed to take that off
too.

btw, what are you using for exhaust manifolds/headers?

I'm getting ready for the "BIG" swap planned for this weekend.
Saturday is the "gather the parts" day. I'm putting a 460 from a '77
Lincoln into a '78 F150 4x4. According to the Ford dealer the 460 was
an option for the '78 F150 so will I be able to use the stock 460
motor mounts? Will I have to change oil pans? and boy there sure are
alot of hoses on that 460. Any last minute advice?

I have seen a factory F250 4WD with a 460. I can't remember if it was a '78 or '79.

Hey truck folks,

The days are getting shorter and cooler and I'm starting to think
about how I'm going to stay warm in my '71 F100 w/FE390 this winter..

My '71 has a really pathetic heater.
Everything is in good working order, but it doesn't do a very good
job keeping things (ME) warm.

It's got a new heater core and control valve but the core
is itty-bitty and just isn't up to the task when it's really cold out.
I run a 195F thermostat during the winter and that helps a little,
but I'm trying to decide what else I can do before cold weather
gets here.

Are there any heavier duty heater parts or setups that use a bigger
core that will fit my '71?

Any tips or suggestions on how to make mine work better?

Is everyone (anyone?) else out there with old trucks staying warm?

I'm starting to eyeball those 2 Bosch gasoline heaters I've got
laying in the garage. They came out of old VW busses but they
are starting to look more and more like Ford parts....

If the 460 was a factory option, you should be able to use the truck
factory mounts, not the car mounts (frame differences, etc.). For the same
reason(s), the car and truck oil pans were different. On the M-blocks, for
example, the cars had 5-qt pans while the trucks had 6-qt pans on the same
engines.

One thing to watch for on bell housings is the depth. Well known is the
fact that the M-block (351M/400) bell housing bolt pattern matches the
429/460 pattern. According to a Ford dealership parts guy (of unknown
reliability), the bell housings are actually different for those two engine
families. He told me that the 429/460 bell housing was longer than the
M-block bell housing, with the clutch release lever in a different place.
I don't know for sure if that's true (no other confirmation), but I'd check
it out if I was doing a swap.

Another thing to watch out for is the clutch itself. The 351M came with an
11" clutch and the 400 came with a 12" clutch. I'm not sure what size the
clutch should be with a 460.

Hey gang,

Just wanted to say thanks for all the replys to my questions regarding
a 4 bar rear suspension and problem with missing/surging 390 in my '64
Tbird. I located and fixed the problem with the 390. It was all in
adjustments in timing - had WAY to much being contributed by the
vacuum advance device and static timing was 11 degress - got all set
as per my shop manual and the old 'bird sings a whole new song.

Gona take the advice of many who gave alternatives to the four bar
rear and continure to investigate options...

Thanks again to all...
