477/534 swap

Hi.i have a few questions about the 477/534 engines. I have a 76 f 600 crew cab ramp truck with a 370-2v a 4 speed trans a single speed rear. the motor is on its death bed and im looking to replace it. I found a 72 or 74 F800 dump trk with a 477-534. 5 speed with a two speed rear end. i plan on using the entire drive line but my question is the engine. are they any good?what options would anyone recommend. thanxs

Didn't you already ask this? If you want to keep the conversation going in a previous post it would probably be better to just respond with a follow up question. That brings it back to the top and lets you guide the conversation.

This should be a no-brainer. Ford discontinuted the 477/ 534 for very good reasons. They were good in their day, but that day has long gone......
