Has anyone done a documentation of the variations of the 460 in totality? I don't just mean the change from the Carb'd to EFI variants, but the entire thing from bearing and main changes to well everything.
I've done a search, but I did not find anything that was truly conclusive. There must be a book about this somewhere or something.
Well, nothing that I know of, but early on were c8 heads and 10.3 deck, sorry rods, then went to the c9 head for 69, same thing though, then 70 came the dove heads, 71 was a 10.322 deck, went from the dove block casting to the d1ve casting, then 72 came the really really sorry d2 heads along with the retarded cam timing, then 73 was the debut of the d3 heads. 79 was a running change for internal balance to external balance and the deeper cylinder block that was the last casting, D9, as well as the football cut rods, somewhere in there the 460 went from Lincoln to f series, 83 was the first manual trans ever. 88 was the first EFI and 5 spd option as well as back to the regular straight up cam timing. 92 was a revised EFI system, and that got us to the last one in 97. Theres some odds and ends I have missed but that sums up the 460 for it's 30 year production.
