I thank thats just an adaptor to put a carb on the efi intake. I took the pumps from the van, and mounted them in place to preform this function , along with a new required fuel return line. The only way to spot it is to remove the air intake box and possibly the large 2 air intake hoses. This build was both much less expensive and more in line with what the average big-block Ford owner might realistically perform. A stock 460 cylinder bore was measured at 4. If not, then your injectors are leaking, probably from leaving old fuel in the tank and gumming up the system. Someone please help been waiting to go rving for 2 years.
Small passages and valves are good at building torque on the low end. Front end, u-joints,steering every 30k on a plow truck no matter what you do. Any check engine light on? Oh well, the search resumes! The output for the 460 starting in 1972 is 212 horsepower at 4,400 rpm and 342 pound-feet of torque at 2,600 rpm. Just too many little problems all over the place. It should come as no surprise that our list of bolts-ons included the major power producers, namely the heads, cam, and intake.
Actually, I am not sure which spec I should be looking at to support a trailer and Jeep. Will not fit 1988-later models or 429 Cobra-Jets. What are the various weight ratings? The induction system matters little if you plan to upgrade it any way, besides, no self respecting intake manifold should be made of iron. The only exception is flex fuel vehicles. There was so much rust in the two tanks, that both fuel pumps were cemented and had very low output, as well as a vacuum leak. The compression ratio was lowered to 8. There is nothing we love more than significant changes to a power curve.
Good luck finding someone to do it, besides the guy who wrote this article. Steve 5-8-09 Where did you find the plenum riser? To differentiate a 429 from a 460, check the orientation of the thermostat housing on the front of the engine block. I was left with a harness in need or rewrapping and only about 6 wires without a home. This combination should render some impressive torque numbers when we dyno it next month. My phone is 719-646-4300 Required fields in red For more info about a field, place your mouse over the icon.
The fan shroud needed some trimming to clear the alternator pulley and belts. Will run on gas or propane. You know, where a tow engine operates. All flatbed trucks must be a minimum of a 1 ton cab and chassis series pickup In my opinion those rules have a lot of holes. In the end, I left the engine stock and have had no complaints.
Also, had to replace the elect. I just want a very simple brute engine in this rig. It is an extended cab long bed. I have one of these engines on the stand now using this configuration to go in a mid 70's highboy. It has cast and vertically machined fuel injector bosses for proper fuel injector placement.
I am looking to buy a very good 1988 Ford F250 tomorrow and I wanted to know if there are any common problems to look for other than it being a Ford. Starting from the top, the factory, cast-iron induction system was upgraded with a Weiand Stealth intake manifold. Jeff Strickland wrote in message news:Hn5f5. We are considering a 27ft Class C model that is built on an Econoline Van chassis. Spring shackles must not be restricted in any manor.
The down side is Miles Per Gallon. To say the least I was disappointed for driving 3 hours round trip for it, but hey, that's shopping. Rocker arms are tightened to 20 foot-pounds, while the oil pump retaining bolt gets torqued to 25 foot-pounds. From what I read, the the tank has to be removed to get the pump out. Advice or leads would be appreciated.
So, my questions are, Is the '88 Fuel Injected 460 a multiport design or a throttle body design? He installed the carb intake on the fi motor. It only has a 351, to pull the 21 footer. It heat up and jams. It sits closer to the front of the truck with the serpentine belt. Put a fuel pressure gauge on the schreider valve on the passenger side of the engine and check the fuel pressure.
Spring shackles must be in the original position as intended by the manufacturer. May have a secondary tank located in the box and securely fastened down. Designed to accept standard flange throttle bodies. This includes welding the spring shackles or any other method of restricting them. The intake side of the head provides a cross-sectional oval port which helped give the engine the high torque ratings that it was known for.
