How many runs on the motor? If not that many I'd cut open the oil filter and leak it down. If alls good might check the springs, run valves etc. Otherwise I can see you wanting a professional to go through it. But then again you are a member of the best 460 site on earth.

That depends on the cylinder work. If it was a slick low friction hone job, you're not going to see the same thing you'd see on a daily driver. Did you have any apparent lip at the top of the cylinder where the top ring stops? Are you seeing any smoke or oil consumption?

Bruno,Don't be so paronoid about going in your motor. It,s actually really fun and gratifing when you get it finished.I'am 53 and I rebuilt my first engine when I was 18 or 19. It was a 427 LoRiser.I grabbed a Motor manual and started asking alot of questions. You have some of the best people in the world on this Forum to help you. Will save you lots of money also. Check and double check , be very clean and you will be very proud. LOL Rick

Like what was just said, grab a motors manual and buy a Torque wrench and have at it. I haven't worked on a motor in 35 years but that's how I did it then. My cousin knew a little about motors (chebys that is) he, I and another friend completely rebuilt a 289 for my '65 Mustang in 1 weekend.
We were lucky it didn't need any head or block work. Turned out to run pretty strong. You can get a shop to do that though. My second engine was a 428 CJ which I did on my own. I'm doing a 460 this winter.
If you're not afraid to get your hands dirty YOU CAN DO IT.
And also like was said you have the BEST forum there is to back you up.
GO for it!

unless your in a hurry, take your time and do it yourself. You will learn sooo much. We are hear to answer ANY questions. I do my own wrenching, but these guys are a lot more 'technical' and precise. If worse comes to worse, you can always take it somewhere later and have them put it back together. With a good manual, this site and maybe a local mechanic friend you CAN do it! Autozone has the loan-a-tool program for those 'use once' tools.

Sharpen your pitchforks and light your torches... 'CHANGE' is coming!
