Does 462 heads and intake will improve performance of 430, torq or hp?
Don't know about the fuel miliage but I would think so. I do know the 462 ports are smaller and the 462 heads have a good short turn radius compared to the 430. Smaller ports keep the air/fuel mixture moving faster.

Re: T85 R/11 Borg warner 3 speed OD Manual Trans.

I have a T85 R/11 in a 57 Thunderbird that shifts into overdrive as it should but when it drops out of overdrive at about 25 mph if I accelerate it is like the engine is totally disconnected from the rear axle. This car was last driven in 1970. I rebuilt the engine and am now in the process of gett...

Re: New from Oregon

I was wondering if the 66-68 had a BBF C6 bolt pattern, can you bolt up any manual bellhousing? 462s have the 61-65 pattern cast into it but some are factory tapped for a C-O-M to bolt up to it and some are not. I do not know why that is. The one in draft will likely be a C-O-M pattern (to accommod...

Re: New from Oregon

Hello Fordman,
Sounds like cool project. Keep an eye on this forum for a 61-68 430/462 to manual transmission bell housing. As far as I know nothing has materialized yet but there is one on the table.

Re: 430 MEL restoration

Looks like a normal 58-62 430. Do you still have the 2 barrel? If you want a 4 barrel and by chance you have C6VE (462) heads I have a 462 intake you can have for shipping. I am pretty sure it will not seal on any early heads, has ro be 462 small port heads. Same goes for 63 4 barrel, if I still hav...

Thanks for posting that picture. That was how we rode with dad and grandad on a 1940 or 41 9N. Going by the hubs, starter button and dipstick your looks to be about the same.

Re: 430 MEL restoration

Guys I was sure that you will say at least good direction, go for it or propose something different for ordinary overhaul. I have seen a couple of the incorrect pistons for the MEL engines. Not sure where Falcon is with the correct pistons. Wiesco does make the correct piston for the MEL. Others I ...
