Is this a 460?

I got a engine from a junk yard. And the man says it's a 460. I want to be sure these are the numbers from the block.

DIVE-6015-A2B

And this is the numbers I found from one of the heads.

Thanks in advance!

My book says that a block no starting with D1VE is from 68-70429/460 or 429CJ but does not list the rest of the no's you have

Re: Is this a 460?

this is a great thread... can anyone tell me if cams, pushrods, and rocker arms are interchangeable between a 429 and 460?? I spun a rod bearing in my boat 460 and bought another 460. Turns out its a 429 not a 460. I want to use the valvetrain and cam out of my 460 cause its all good and the cam is a loper. I wont be running the 460 heads, cause the 429 came with Dove-c heads. I just really hope all that stuff is interchangeable. Thanks

On any given year of production, the 429 and 460 share the same internal parts except for the crankshaft (stroke) and pistons (pin location). If they are from different model years then they might not have 100% interchangeability, speicifically in the area of the valve train. So if your boat heads are currently D3VEs then the valve train from the D0VE heads will not work with the D3VE heads, and visa-versa. It would be necessary to change the entire top end of the engine as a complete set.
