Ford 460 parts
« on: April 27, 2009, 03:12:01 pm »
I have a complete bottom end out of a good running ford 460. I went with a stroked out 545 and no longer need this stuff. I have a stock crank with rods and pistons that have good rings.

Well let me know. I am willing to trade for some parts I can use (carb, tall valve covers, oil pan, etc...) or I well sell the rod and pistons for $100 and the crank for $150.

What exactly are you looking for in trade? Might have me interested now. What's the bore size? Std?

I would be looking for anything I can use for my new 545 build. I have a short block together. Thats where I stand. I can use tall valve covers, 10qt. oil pan, 850+cfm carb,etc... I have cash to throw on top of any item worth it... I also have pair of D3VE-A2A heads, not sure if I should use them or sell em. know anything about those heads?

Sell them , they will never flow enough for that size motor!! You need a lot of flow to get that 545 to perform.

Yeah I am trying to figure out if it is worth it for me to sit down and port and polish them... Not sure if i can port them as big as i need them to be.. Do you think I can get away with running some freshly machined Dove C's? I just don't wanna do aluminium, wanna build a solid iron beast...

My crank is 4.5" stroke Scat, with the 6.7" scat rods, and probe flat top pistons. gonna be around 11:1 compression. Wanna stay with iron heads so I can tell all the guys that have 454's that they got whooped by a 460... ;)

I have the same combo but eagle instead of scat. I went with a probe 22cc dished piston cause my heads have a really small combustion chamber , but I am still the same comp ratio.

You NEED a really good flowing head to make any power with that set up!! I don't think you can port a D3 enough to even get close to the flow you need.
