how could i ID it if its a 429, something that only a 429 would have ?
so a 460 is virtually the same as the 429 ?
im not much a ford person, i learned alot about ford v-8 engines when i replaced the crank bearings in the bottom of a 351 C in the 77 pickup last fall for him after he had it turned for new ones, it runs like new and has been great ever since
thanks for anything
has a description of the "385 - series" engine family which includes the 429 and 460. This engine family is also often referred to as the "Lima" engine, as it was mfr'd in Ford's Lima, Ohio engine plant.
Other characteristics not mentioned there are:
7-bolt valve covers
Fuel Pump bolts are horizontal
including some casting numbers and where to find them.
