Yep. the casting number would be the same between the 429 and the 460.

Hi and welcome to the forums!

The factory oil coolers are interesting in their layout. I would think that the aforementioned "Breaching" is due to corrosion in the cooling system.

Have you replaced the pumps at anytime since you bought this truck? And, how many miles has it seen?
