forgot to add this link as well

this is a list of parts to help ease the conversion

http://www.ncspecialties.com/autobody/460/index.htm

the mounts in the link in the other poster are solid mounts no insulation from engine noise and vibrations

the perches I listed allows the use of OEM parts so when a insulator fails you can go to any parts store and buy a new one for around 20 bucks verses sending it back for warrenty and waiting a couple of weeks to get a new one

How do the 2 wheel drive engine stands work on a 79 F150 4x4?

I've got a 79 F250 4x4 frame that I'm parting out. I dunno what engine was in it, but here's a pic. If anyone can tell you they're 460, they'll go $40 shipped to 48 states
this is easy
those are 351M/400 frame perches and what is left of the insulators

4x4 ford never seen a 460 until 1983 from the factory

the Anchors and insulators work from 1983-1997 460 Fseries 2wd or 4wd

most wrecking yards prolly have a set of anchors in the engine core pile or on the shelf
it seems that ford discontinued this part you could try your local dealer may have a set in stock

if availibity of the anchor proves to difficult I will prolly start making them as well

the frame perches I build and sell

currently I have one set left for leaf spring frames

I have 6 sets of coil spring style

mounts

hey if you dont mind a solid mount you can take those mounts from the m and strip the rubber. then take the side from a 460 and strip the motor side and weld them together. thats what i did and been using them for years ..

here is a cheap way if you dont have to much power. this works for a 460 swap in to trucks that came with a 351m/400. use motor mounts for a 65 galaxie with a 390. swap them side for side from where they would have gone on the 390. and only use 2 of the bolt holes. use your original 351 towers. i have done this on 4 different trucks of my own and have 2 friends that have done it with success. the mounts go for about $15 at the local parts store.
