390 to 460 swap
I have a 74 F-250 with a 390, and another half ton ford with a built 460, i bought the half ton a while back and got to drive it for 4 hours before the transmission gave up, and i'm looking to get rid of it and slap the motor in my 74 to replace the tired old 390, i'm curious what problems i'll have with the motor mounts? or should it drop right in? on ''eyeballing'' it, it looks like i shouldnt have too many problems and shouldnt have to weld in anything, but its hard to say because the half ton was a 300-6 to a 460 swap, so the previous owner obviously had to make some custom mounts, so it looks a little wierd to determine if they're the same or not.
Anyone know whether or not the mounts on the frame are the same for a 390 as they are for a 460?
The more people I meet, the more I like my dog.
