New member intro

Hello, I'm hotrod429, aka Kevin.

I'm currently the proud, yet frustrated owner of a 1973 Lincoln MV IV. The 460 was pulled and replaced with a 1970 429 CJ ram air motor out of a mercury marauder I believe. The ram air stuff was long gone by the time we got the motor.

Currently the only mods are flowmaster true duals (2 1/4") and an edelbroke performer 750. The top end of the motor is dv3e although as soon as I get more money together, I'll be rebuilding the d0ve heads.

The car is nice, and she'll smoke the tires at the blip of the throttle

But the motor is tired. When the motor first went in, a piston was cracked but the motor ran great. Replaced it (no money for a proper rebuild) and she's been running great for 20+ years.

My first few questions:
Low oil pressure. Con rod bearings were replaced a few years back. Oil pressure flickers. Only have 5 psi at hot idle. Main bearings? Where can I get a crank kit (crank and bearings)
Is the motor internally balanced?
What intake can I fit under the hood? If not, I have no problem sourcing a second hood and cutting it up for a scoop. So if no intakes fit, what's the best for a street motor?
What cam? The car will be a stock bottom with an intake and d0ve heads with the edelbroke 750
I know headers are out of the question. So is 2 1/4" pipes sufficient?


I have more questions, but won't fill my intro with them.

Thanks for the add to the forums. I look forward to being a member here

I painted her in 2009. First ever paint job on anything.
