Checking on interest....460 motorS cheap?

Okay I will be posting this in the general area too. I ahve a chance to pick up a FEW 460 motors. They are used but the all came off a generator. They ran LPG(propane) and were maintained to the best of my knowledge. What I am wondering is if there would be interest in anyone buying one of these engines for 400 dollars or possibly less if I can worka deal on the whole lot.? SO let me know if anyone might be interested.

I am going to check them out tomorrow but I do know they are complete from intake to pan.

If they end up being like the one that s_stang found then I'd say they're definately worth $400 each. His had a Scat crank and H-beam rods, was a well pump motor if I remember right. Chris

Think you'll have to pull the pan to find out. Chris

I would be, but shipping would probably kill the deal. I have seen lots of complete motors go from free to $250 here in the KC area. I should have been quicker on the draw.

Well I am sure if they have the fore mentioned internals I will have no shortage of buyers. I will be removing atleast one oil pan to check the internals...so I know what is in them.

I did some work in a cummins generator plant and they had a bunch with turbocharged 460's.

Sorry guys, but 460 industrial engines NEVER came from the factory with SCAT cranks or H-beam rods. Or forged 460 cranks. BE CAREFUL what you read from s_stang, most of the time he is either talking out of his *** or re-gurgitating something he read before on the internet. I know because I have gone through the torture of reading his posts for years and years and have grown tired of chasing every incorrect statement of his and attempting to right his wrongs again and again.

What these engines WILL be is a D1VE or D9TE block, D3VE heads with spring cups, will likely have rods with footbal rod bolts, fully-grooved main bearings, and may even have a late casting D0OE-9425-C iron CJ-style intake manifold. And that's it...basically a bone stock 460 with a nice factory iron intake....maybe on the intake. Oh, one more thing...there is a very slight chance that they would have forged flat top pistons, if the engines were manufactured in the mid-1980's on up. If they are earlier than that, they have a cast dished piston. Finally, may or may not have a very large capacity oil pan, depending on applicaton.

Really man...,.I mean where was SCAT in the mid 1980's? I think they only made VW parts back then (seriously) and certainly did not sell parts to Ford.

Okay, all that being said....$400 for a complete engine with all the little stuff is a great deal. IF you have ever tried to build one of these engines from the block up, then you know what it's like to be nickel and dimed to death on the little stuff. You will be getting block, heads, crank, timing cover, rods, bolt hardware, etc. for just $400. Good deal.
