No more big block mtrs. from Ford.

I called Ford Racing on Wed. the 25th to check on buying a 460 short block and was told that Ford will no longer supply any big block mtrs. They told me that they ran out of blocks. They will develop a new big block for next year. I did not ask about heads. So no more 460 or 514 from Ford. I would thank for you guys that have one the value has just increased.

Did they say what the "new" big block would be?

No all that they said was that a new big block will be developed for next year.

I wonder if this has something to do with this new "Hurricane" engine coming out.
