Need Help With 460 Industrial Engine

Does any one have any information on the Ford Power Products Industrial 460 engines made in the early 1990's - considering buying one that was used to power an Onan generator - engine has 543 hours - has 429SCJ intake manifold - I would like to know compression ratio - piston type - cam information. Thank you in advance for any help.

For the love of god,do yourself a favor and walk the other direction. Hope you didn't buy it. Stick with engines from passenger cars and light trucks....

Nice engine, basically the same as a 460 Marine. It should have the iron SCJ intake, SCJ camshaft (216*/220*@0.050), full-groove main bearings, D6TE truck rods with football-head bolts, heads are packed with slightly different valve train parts (all good), and in your particular case ("early 1990's" engine) it might even have forged flat top pistons. Lastly, it should have either E6TE or E8TE heads, which are basically D3VE heads with hardened seats (and one different accessory bolt thread on one end--no big deal).

OEM dish tops: 7.8:1
OEM Flat Tops: 8.8:1

I'm lost, I thought all industrial and heavy truck engines where a no no....dually noted.

I'm actually a tad embarrassed. I had a bad experience and inexperienced. through my research I thought I gained a little knowledge in this area...(obviously not). I shouldn't have posted. I thought that I mighta knew what I was talking about, being that your thread went so long unanswered.

My apologies, I could have costed you a good engine buy.

I'm just a spectator and will act accordingly.
My apologies.

Gentlemen, the wealth of knowledge on this forum is amazing and the fact that you are willing to share it is unprecedented. Thank you very much for taking time to answer my questions. Fortunately, I was able to purchase the engine and can move forward with confidence that it will be an excellent choice for my project.

It's a simple misunderstanding as we are now talking about two different engine lines and applications: 460 Industrial vs 429 Commercial. Each has its own parts make up.

With FoMoCo engineering revisions, the "J" (ie, D3JE-AA") stands for "Industrial/Marine." Please use this thread to report on what you find in inside that engine because in times of shortages it's not uncommon for big manufacturer lines to sometimes grab whatever unintended parts are available and keep a line going. I've seen this a lot on the passenger car stuff but I don't think I've seen it on the Marine/Industrial stuff...then again I don't know for sure if I've seen a FPP engine from a 1990's co-generator and so I can't be positive it will have those pistons (the Marine engine would).
