Aircraft using the 429-460 engine.

I will try to find that book but one that old is not very easy. I have books back to 1907 on the balancing of engines,V-8s in particular, but it took me about 5 years to find that one. However you just never know what will just seem to pop up when you have given up.
Yours, M. L. Anderson

Although, I'm guilty of asking them myself on occasion.

If you make up your mind that the engine has limits of exhaust
ports, iron heads, and stock rods and let it go at that you can
relax and enjoy the ride.
Just dont expect it to run like you spent a lot of money on it
and let it go at that. Its big enough to have a problem with
the bite and pull hard so dont try to destroy it.
If you get used to the way it runs so you can feel what its doing you will feel it start to feel "ready to shift" around
5 or 55 hundred so dont get heroic - it will go further than that
but it will eat a lot and spoil the fun.
Be very sure about oiling and if the valves loosen - lash them
tighter - so they dont loosen and hammer, and just enjoy the
touch and feel of the big block.

Intake valve size doesn't have to be compelled to be exaggerated at this level, untainted valves ar steered over heavily used stockers
Port work on the exhaust aspect ought to be thought of necessary at this level. Thermactor removed, bowl intermingled to the larger seat, casting flash removed, exhaust bolt boss two-dimensional. the higher the work, the higher it'll run........

Hey guys I'm sure you've all heard this a million times, but I just got an 86 f250 with the 460, and I live here in the great state of California... Supposedly everything on the truck is smog legal, except for the carburetor. I've looked on summit, jegs, and searched around on here but have found no smog legal carb. Does anyone have any hints or anything on where I could find one? I'd really appreciate it

You're probably better to start a new thread with a title that says what you are asking, you'll probably get more responses.

Oil Pressure

Oil pressure is 60 psi cold, but drops to about 18 psi hot, at idle in gear (about 650 rpm). I wanna run it until have the money to overhaul but don't want to hurt the crank. (I also talk nice to it and pat the valve covers in the hope that helps.)

Smokey said all you need is 10 PSI/1000 RPM, that is all you need to know. Dave

These trucks came from the factory with a Holley, so it is smog legal if it was originally sold in Cali and still has the air pump and the associated parts. Dave

Carb Trade

Send me a nice 3310 Holley 750/780 4150 or a 830,850 with fuel line and I will swap you my factory smog legal Holley right off my running truck that has no issues. I am thinking of a stoker with alloy heads down the road and can use the bigger carb. My truck is a one owner 91K mile piece that is mint and the carb is running perfect. PM me if you are interested and I can send you pictures with the air cleaner off. Dave
