I tried your advice and found lots of stuff on oil pressure but not an answer to my question. Maybe you or another reader can help.
I've a '78 460 with about 128,000 miles on it. I can't seem to find anything that gives a safe minimum oil pressure. Running straight 50 wt currently. Oil pressure is 60 psi cold, but drops to about 18 psi hot, at idle in gear (about 650 rpm). I wanna run it until have the money to overhaul but don't want to hurt the crank. (I also talk nice to it and pat the valve covers in the hope that helps.)
Hey guys I'm sure you've all heard this a million times, but I just got an 86 f250 with the 460, and I live here in the great state of California... Supposedly everything on the truck is smog legal, except for the carburetor. I've looked on summit, jegs, and searched around on here but have found no smog legal carb. Does anyone have any hints or anything on where I could find one? I'd really appreciate it
Send me a nice 3310 Holley 750/780 4150 or a 830,850 with fuel line and I will swap you my factory smog legal Holley right off my running truck that has no issues. I am thinking of a stoker with alloy heads down the road and can use the bigger carb. My truck is a one owner 91K mile piece that is mint and the carb is running perfect. PM me if you are interested and I can send you pictures with the air cleaner off. Dave
When engine shake, decreased power performance, increased fuel consumption, poor acceleration, excessive exhaust gas, increased fuel consumption, etc., it should be that the car has more serious carbon deposits.

I am brand-new to this forum, but I've been running a '69 Lincoln 460 in my '71 Mach I for 38 years.
There are not many other people running 460s in England. It's a great motor, but it does vibrate quite a lot.
I would like to hear from anyone who has fitted a Fluidampr harmonic...
Does anyone know if stock 460 retainers can work with comp cams 926 valve springs?
I’m not opposed to spending money where it’s needed but with a pretty mild budget build I’d like to save where it is practical.
I've been looking for an engine for my 1953 F100 for a while, I still have the running original in it, but I may sell it or keep it for nostalgia. I bought 1986 302 EFI that was running when pulled for $365 CAD on a stand with a chain on the advice of my mechanic/friend. I really didn't want a...
