Leave the egr plate in place and block it off where it bolts to the plate or you WILL have an exhaust leak.
It also acts as a spacer and the throttle linkage and air cleaner will sit too low

You probably want to hook up the heated air intake.
It gets plenty cold in north Dakota and these 460's are cold blooded beasts to begin with...

That is just the 1-1/2" or so tube from the exhaust manifold to the intake right? If so that's still there.

Yes.
But it needs to be functional.
The Bi-Metal disc inside the air cleaner helps the truck warm up quite a bit faster than if it were only breathing cold air.

If spacing is an issue you can always buy a phenolic spacer. They come in all sorts of sizes. I just plugged the hole into the intake and I don't have any vacuum leaks. I also don't have a spacer installed and I removed the EGR. The carb and air cleaner fits just fine. Just my 2 cents.

QUESTION 7: The above noted connector has been “jumpered” with a piece of wire.

Click the image to open in full size.


It looks like the plug that goes to the oil pressure cutoff located on the top of the engine behide the carb. I keep mine jumpered because i've had no luck finding the replacement part.

I don't know.

The oil pressure sender behind my EGR looks like a small tin can with a single wire on top.
I have a mechanical fuel pump, and no need for that wiring related to the hot fuel handling system.

But according to the schematic I'm looking at, it is a red wire with a yellow tracer.

The tin can with a single wire is the sender for the dash. The other one back there kills power to the fuel pump(s) in order to save the engine.

Beware of those cheap gaskets between the intake and EGR plate. In most cases they need doubled up or cut from quality material.

I had to buy a pack of 10 EGR spacer gaskets from Ford.

PM me with your address if you need one.

I understand this, that's why i made the distinction between the gauge sender and the idiot light sensor.

If it were functional, at least the truck wouldn't completely destroy itself due to a lack of oil pressure.

I have a good oil pressure switch that matches that plug I just removed from mine. Archion may know of a source for it.

Wow. Thanks for all the help guys. Unfortunately I spend most my time working on these projects on the weekends. Planning on going to get a rebuild kit for the carb this afternoon.

Im not looking fwd to the fuel in this thing, but its definitely not a daily driver, but I have a feeling its going to grow on me more and more to want to drive.
Hopefully some of the fuel cost will be off set by the $0 purchase price!

Wow nice truck would love to find one in that good of shape. Between 85Lebaren and me we have a few wiring harnesses and figured out all the wiring and vacuum lines. A lot of that crap is early smog attempts. On the thermostat housing there are 2 sensors and 5 vac lines. Looks like someone replaced that carb and it appears that the one wire may be for the electric choke. If you are going back to basics you can run vac to the egr and vac to the dist adv and be done with it, the one plug you have in your hand I believe is the oil shutoff plug at the rear of the manifold under the oil sender.

Great! I may have to hit you up on info for that next week after I tear into it again this weekend.

A guy I work with gave me two Haynes manuals this morning. This should be very helpful.
