turbo2256b First On Race Day
Default 77 F150 4WD w/ 460

pURCHASED ANOTHER TRUCK a couple weeks ago. Seller thinks its a 429 my guess its a 460 as it has D3 heads and a reman sticker.

Thinking possibly its got the wrong oil pan as it has a front sump as the sump is bashed a bit. My 78 400 has a rear sump. Should the 460 have a rear sump too?

Other issue is the fuel pump might not be working fairly sure it dosent.
Was planning to try to start it today but cant remember were the key is.

Yes. They were rear sump pans. The Foxbody 460 swap oil pans are for trucks. You could probably pick one up on here pretty cheap. They usually go for about $100 (give or take a few) used with the correct pickup. You will need to change your oil pump out though when you do this. The mounting point on the rear sump oil pump for the pickup is different than the front sump oil pump. Paul Kane on here can set you up with a nice rear sump oil pump. He works them a bit and I guarantee it will be better than the oil pump you get from Autozone. This is one area where you don't want to skimp. Below is a link to his Oil Pump sale thread in the vendor section. They aren't that expensive and well worth the price. I have one in my motor.

Thanks for the info. Figured the pan and pickup tube didnt have any idea about the pump itself knowing that will save some time up front.
Have to figure out were the keys are and attempt to start again. Hopping the no fuel issue isnt in the tank as its full.
