    Does anyone know FORD 460\'s ? PLEASE HELP..............

    I know, easy boys /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
    Here is the deal, I use a 1989 Ford E-350 4x4 van to pull my Blazer and I need to replace the timing chain gaskets. While I'm doing this I figured I might as well throw a new water pump on and change the timing chain.
    The question is, I heard that if I use a pre-1971 460 chain it will advance the cam timing 8 deg. and give the motor alot more power & torque because after 1971, as we all know, motors all lost power and the easiest way Ford could meet the new lame standards was to retard the cam timing and kill the performance. If anyone has done this or knows about it, I would REALLY appreciate some input.
    I hate to do it twice. Also keep in mind that I do not need an emissions test here or inspection at all.
    Thanks, Dave /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    As far as I know, you just replace the existing one with the older style. I wish I had gotten around to doing that in my 78 Bronco before I got rid of it. It is really supposed to help. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance to you! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    No, Thanks! Any help is good. At least you have heard of doing it too. I would really like to find someone that has actually done it if I can.

    The only link I can find on my computer that might help you is Bronco Message Board . It is a full size Bronco board and I am sure the info is there somewhere. 460's are populat swaps into big Broncos! I had one! /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    this is not the best when asking 385 series engine questions
    Jon Kaase posts on the network 54 forum, he is without question the best

    Thanks MJ, Now I know who you are talking about and that site will help. From what I have seen so far, I'm right and a lot of guys on there are all saying the same thing- Change the timing set to a pre 71 so the cam timing is advanced 8 deg.
    Thanks again. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    I'll still take any input from anyone out there on this please.
