Honestly, I would not disassemble an engine with low mileage. I would look at the cylinders for scuffing or rust through the plug holes. Depending on what cylinder heads are on there now I would not pull them unless you intend to replace them. Replace all the gaskets and seals you can get to and install a cloys straight up timing set. Once you have sorted out the transmission (C6 ?), exhaust system, fan and radiator and engine mounts (all Ford) and re-balanced your check book you can decide if you want or need to go into the engine. I have two 66 F100's with 460 and C6, 100% all Ford parts used during the installation. There is good info on desmogging a 460 on this site. Scotty can help with heads later. So, don't screw with a good running engine, get it installed and running in your truck, then if you really must, dig into the engine. My opinion for what it's worth.

I would do more research concerning replacing your EFI system with a carburetor. I use carburetors but only because I am baffled when it comes to EFI systems. It seems your engine has EFI? Converting that to a carburetor may not be economically advantageous ? More research is needed.

I have done plenty of research converting it to a standalone system is going to cost way too much money carburetor is way more economically friendly for me
