View Full Version : Rebuilding the 460.....thoughts?

Well, last season was the last run of the original motor in my boat...22 years of service had 3 holes down around 100#, and since the motor/drive are out right now to do some stringer work, no point putting a tired, leaky, rusty motor back in.....I'm trying to keep it as cheap as possible, big power really isn't a goal, but I'd like the boat to do 75 if possible.

My thoughts are:

IF the pistons are in good shape, possibly just hone and re-ring (motor only has 200 hrs)

Cam (not sure how big yet, or brand)

These manifolds to replace the HUGE cast OMC ones:

Possibly a set of DOVE heads, or aluminum heads, mainly for weight.

Engine has a new Edelbrock performer alum intake and a new Holley 750DP, so I'm going to leave those alone....anything else I'm missing?

It is a good block, perf items are limited but 75 should be an easily attainable goal.

If you run into a deal on BBC manifolds (like Stainless Marine), CP Performance/Hardin has spacers to adapt Chevy manifolds to Ford 460's

Why dont you switch to a mercruiser or chevy engine. wouldnt that help your resale value if you decide to sell later? It seems more people lean away from big block fords in marine applications.
You could buy a rebuilt long block for a pretty reasonable price.

CaribouLou

I like the 460, and it keeps it different. Resale isn't a big deal, don't plan on selling it.

Don't hone and re-ring. It doesn't cost that much to have the cylinders bored at an automotive machine shop. Order up some forged pistons from Summitt Racing. Keep compression at 9:1 max and definitely replace the heads. That is a big weak point on Ford big blocks. JMO based on a lot of years of wrenching on cars doing heavy repairs.

When I redid my 351 Windsor in my donzi, I ended up buying a long block from RHS, racing head service out of Tennesse.
It actually came out cheaper than redoing mine and I believed my original block was getting a little rough.
The quality of their long blocks was great and very reasonable price.

Well, I'd target about 500 hp if you want 75 mph. Not sure...maybe the KC on the back of your boat would do it on a bit less power. Aren't they a bit more efficient than Bravos?

I never built a big Ford, but any Ford project always starts with heads. Looks like you've got some ideas there. Exhaust is going to be an issue unless you can make the adapters work. The rest of it should be pretty easy.

Definitely cheaper than swapping to a Chevy/Bravo combo and like you said - different/more interesting.

Hole - E - Crap...

$470 for 5 lbs of aluminum (pre-cooked weight) and a few minutes of milling time.

They're making some good margin on those suckers! I guess they know they've got a captive audience!

Nice thread..

The 460 is a great geometric torque engine.. as as others have stated Cylinder heads and exhaust are the greatest upgrade.


If your going to change your cylinder heads, and yes that is were all the power is going to be made (keep it simple)

With a margin of 5200 rpm in mind and the hopes you can use 91 octane fuel. Might I make a suggestion.

Pick your cylinder heads first (if your are changing them)
Look at edelbrock as well as others ( dont get too carried away because 5200 rpm is the top and you wont be there all the time) and some heads are too lazy down low 3-3500 rpm

New pistions are a must have to insure compression.(even more so when heads are changed)

Compression makes horsepower. keep it safe once your head chamber is picked

9.5-9.8 compression with the right cam wont detonate on 91 octane

Camshaft ..Reversion is always a factor as is valve train longevity.

Comp Cams series xm such as a xm270h or of that type (easy on parts. no reversion)

Change your timing chain set to a cloyes ( ford timing chains have a certain amount of retard built in and not that much is needed)

And last.. exhaust. Tough one but worth every $$ ! if adapters are the ticket to some good emi or etc.. do it. Nothing gained on the above unless you do upgrade the exhaust..



Exhaust......compression... camshaft....Cylinder heads(optional)...

Should be a great combo with everything you already have... Prop shopping in your future im sure !!

Being as the boat has a King on it it will turn better top speed than a Bravo boat, stock 385hp 22 get into the bottom of the 70's. IMO the 460 is a torque monster bring the hp to 450 it should make 75 and keep its reliability. The 454 is 4.250 stroke X 4 bore the 460 is 4.360 stroke X 3.850 bore, the longer stroke relates to more torque.

CaribouLou
03-29-2011, 05:16 PM
With the tired motor, the boat saw 73 on gps empty tank, glass water, 25p Tempest, and just me in the boat. Normal top speed was closer to 65-68 heavy on fuel with people on board.

Except for the advice of changing to a Chevrolet you are getting some good advice here. My 460 in my Testarossa had piston issues with the stock pistons. I ran a race from Olympia to the San Juans and was virtually wide open most of the trip. I put in 53 gallons of gas. Close!

On the trip home I just cruised and noticed some black on the transom on the starboard side. I did not think much of it until I checked the oil level. Not on the stick. I used a bore scope and the engine had #8 cylinder with severe scuffing. I don't remember the hrs.

Definately go with a forged piston and a good roller timing chain. Money well spent. Like others said the cam really depends on the cylinder heads and the exhaust. On my 1988 Ford used a Super Cobra Jet intake that had a huge port mismatch with the cylinder heads but still made more horsepower. It is a great intake manifold for marine use.

Aluminum heads are a great idea but not really available when I did mine in the early 90's. The OMC exhust manifolds hold the engine back the most in my opinion. If you use the stock heads there is a big bump in the exhaust ports you can grind out. It was used for egr in other applications and is solid cast iron.

My advice would be to set your budget for the rebuild and go from there.

Good luck and maybe we can have a Washington get together this year. My best friend has a 90 Classis 22 that needs to see the water. Brian

I plan on using those manifold adapters and factory 496HO manifolds and risers, and doing a "full" rebuild, unless the motor looks THAT good inside (which it won't)

just a little bit of advice

you may want to price out what a used merc would be worth at this point

might not work out because you can obviously reuse all of you existing exhaust etc but you were considering doing some major changes to the 460 which you will still have to do

by adding the additional cost of a new block it might make the used merc motor more attractive

Stick with the Ford 460 ( still a good combo with all the components you all ready have)

Unless you found a complete Merc as some recent 502mpi's have came up from ecu to exhaust I would remain with swapping out a block that needed boring anyway. No big deal


I do like the diesel idea.. 1300 ft pounds of torque.. single screw 38p prop spinning a hard 2800 rpm.. Be the talk of the town.

I've thought about a 600-700 HP Diesel (maybe a Yanmar)in a 26'-28' performance hull as a replacement for twins........weight wouldn't be as big an issue. It could be run @ 80% of full throttle all the time if you wish.
It would probably need a Weissmann drive though.

Kelly, stick with the plan, find a cheap replacement block, have it machined and install a decent cam, crank and pistons, not sure what of those you can use out of the old engine?

Yes - stay Ford/KC! It's a winner just for the unique factor :yes:

As for diesels, some of the Volvo and Yanmar stuff is turning 4000 rpm these days, and weighs about the same as a 454. Of course, you don't have the hot rod support you do with a 12v Cummins.

I couldn't see it either at first. The hole was so big, when I tried to open the pics, my laptop fell through it.

You must still have a 14.4 dialup connection up in the arctic circle.
Easy there CL...I once threatened to leave my igloo and beat someone on this site with my whaling spear when he slagged the Great White North. Don't you be the first to actually make me do it!

Craigslist is awesome, the guy was too lazy to take the C-6 off the back of the motor, so I got everything :D

Starter is still on it. Has good compression. I just need the block, for 200$ I couldn't say no

I would say you grabbed a deal! Sell the C6 and get your bucks back. Phil

I'll second working with Bob @ M.K., what a nice, helpful guy. A fountain of knowledge and willing to share!

Cool, he's very helpful. I was happy to buy a lot of my parts from him for some of his knowledge, he's been around the block and will eliminate a lot of ambiguity and guesswork out of the process. MrFixxall reccomended him and I hadn't heard of the guy and a day later, my friend with a 1000hp NA big block told me to call Bob Madera at Marine Kinetics. Tell him we're bragging about him on the Donzi forum.
