Difference between 79 460 and 87 460

I'm new to the site and could use some help. I have a 1978 f150 with a 79 460 in it, the engine was knocking real bad and as my luck would have it part of one of the piston skirts broke off. My question is. I found a 87 460 carbureted engine from a f250 and was wondering what all would be different or what would I have to change to swap this engine into my truck. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

To my knowledge there is little if any difference between the two. My factory F150/460 and my buddies 86 F250/460 look identical except for the carbs. My only concern would be the exhaust manifolds.

Good Luck
