Subject: ADMIN: Pictorial updated

The pictorial has been updated. Photos sent in from November
15th through Feb 15th have been added. If you didn't get an
email saying yours has been added, then it hasn't so please
don't email me about it as I'm been absolutely swamped with

I just have to get away from computer as I've been working on
the web site, ftp and email for 3 and a half weeks and I just
can't take it anymore.

As it stands, 54 trucks have been added to pictorial. Enjoy!

I'm usually quiet on this list as I'm a F-1 guy. However maybe I can
clarify the 460/462 questions of the past week. "V8 Workshop" may be off
the net, but I PRINTED a bunch of their stuff a while back. (Beats
carrying my PC to the salvage yard)

The good news: They identify the 68-71 460 as 365 HP4600 RPM w/10.5:1 CR.
The 72-77 460 as 212 HP4400 w/8.5:1 CR. The 73-77 460 as 274 HP ???
RPM w/?? CR.

More good news: "High Performance Ford Engine Parts Interchange" book
(1998) identifies the 429/460 with the words "... offered in large Ford,
Mercury and Lincoln luxury cars. Lincolns got the 460 while the
mainstreamers like the T-Bird got the 429. The terrific (read good) part
about the 429/460 is interchangeability, There is an abundance of it."

The bad news (from the same book): "There is also the MEL series big-block
(Mercury-Edsel-Lincoln displacing 383, 430, and 462ci) which will not be
covered because it is not a performance engine. Little, if anything of a
performance nature is available for the MEL series engines. The MEL was
primarily a Lincoln engine .. a large passenger car big-block designed for
low-end torque and quiet operation."
