blastsmost of the info from the post above please disregard unless you like half doing a job
this link is a list of stuff that will make the swap as painless as it can be http://www.ncspecialties.com/autobody/460/index.htm
So, WHAT did I "half do"?. I agree that I have a cooling issue, which I am trying to fix. The power steering pump mount has held in place for numerous sustained high rpm blasts. The factory 429 exhaust manifolds fit without any frame mods. BTW, I used the solid steel mounts on purpose. Obviously, you are one of THOSE people, who only recognizes their methods as correct.
your not dumb but they will work you need to drill another hole to get it to mount to the 460 these mounts is not recommend for the swap only one worse is the performance unlimited onesMy dad swapped a 429 into his factory 360 equipped 68 back in the early 80s. The man selling him the motor said the 360 mounts would work. I being the dumb teenager said I didn't think they would since the 360 is an FE series motor and the 429 is a 385 series motor. The motor mounts DID NOT work.
Now obviously if I was a young teen in the early eighties I am not young now. I say they WILL NOT work. Of course I may still be dumb?
