No broncos had factory installed 460s. Other than heads blocks are the same.
Heads depend on castings.

I agree, I have never heard of a factory Bronco having a 460, so to start out, check the head casting numbers, because someone put the 385 series engine in it and there is no telling what it is.

here's the deal, there is a 70 Lincoln engine for sale about 150 mi. away good condition very cheap, cheap. I all ready have a running 77 460 all stock that is headed for a rebuild/514. I don't have the block numbers off the cheap engine he says's he can't find them? My Question is if is, are the 71 and older blocks stronger or is there any difference. i don't want to make a 300 mile road trip for fun. any help is always appreciated.

i recently purchased a 73 running lincoln in grantsburg, wi. drove it all summer. after i pulled the oil pan i was amazed at the wear on the crank and rod bearings. i have since change my mind concerning runners. now i think it is either remachined or a core no happy medium. bobn

What price are you talking about? If it is a D0VE block and heads, then you can sell them separately for more than you paid, if it is that cheap, maybe double your money or more. The D0VE stuff does not appeal to me, but there are still a lot of people that it does.

If its a 70 lincoln it could be the dove-a block which has a beefer pan rail and I think slightly thicker mains and cylinder walls. Also might have smaller combustion chambers in the heads. I would rather have the 70 motor myself but both are good starter blocks

I wouldn't call a D0VE engine junk.
I would call it a small investment. They are getting more rare every year, compared to the D1VE and newer blocks, with all the cars that went to the crusher over the last year, due to the high price of scrap metal it might be wise to put a few up.

You just never know...

You just never know till you look. I found a DOVE shortblock in a 76 Mercury Marquis at the recyclers. Somebody had already taken the heads, but there was a 2 barrel intake laying there. 50 bucks took it home. I don't know if I would ride 300 miles to look behind the starter though. I would use whatever core I could find.

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?

I wasn't refering to the dove block as junk, just more things in garage that's taking up room. If I new it was a dove block I would have it all ready.
