The front section of your truck will be the same as the US ones (with regards to mounts etc.) that were fitted with the 335 V8 (351M and 400).

I do know one user that has done it in Oz - I will see if I can get him

If you find the motor& tranny . the engine mounts r the only major thing you have to change if remember right. I used to put 460in every thing 25 yrs ago. Now it just a fog . Suck to get old.

Guys, Thanks for the information!
I will be starting the hunt for a decent 460 in the new year, and re-co and install after that, I will keep you informed of how it goes, this is my first F100 modification so I am a little nervous and want to get it right it is such a good truck I would hate to botch it up!
Cheers
Matt

P.S. is there any such thing as a Bad big block or a range of engines that are better than others in relation to the 460??? I have heard to steer clear of the EFI later blocks???

Make sure you check out the 460 forum!

I imagine you will be running it on LPG so whether it is EFI or carb will make little difference from a power point of view....
