I found a 460 that is out of a 78 Lincoln that has low miles what will need to be done to put it in my f100.. i have read that different motor mounts will need to be used but others say different ways.

You can hack up your frame mounts to fit the car mount. Bad idea this will weaken the mount you will also need to do some thing with the exhaust. I have seen way to many cut up hacked up frame rails due to not buying the correct headers or manafolds.

What he said. If it's a 78/79 (maybe even earlier 70s) the frame is the same I think. You would then be able to use some 460 swap mounts right to the stock perches. If not, I have no clue.

Thats a fairly easy swap then. The 460 should bolt up to your tranny just fine. I know LMC has engine mount brackets to swap a 460 from a 400 or 351m.

yz360,
Are you sure it is a 400m?
If it is factory it should have a 300, 302, 360 or 390.

yes because a 390 360 should have the dis. and thermostat in the intake manifold where my intake does not have that

A search should turn up a ton of info since this has been covered pretty good a bunch of times.

In short you will need moor mounts, rear sump oil pan, exhaust manifolds that work or headers(the car manifolds I've seen always dump right on the pass. side frame), if you have a stick trans you will need a flywheel. Remember that there is an internally balanced 460 and an external, is been a while but I'm pretty sure that 78 was the last year of internal balance motors.

Front accessory brackets need some work as well I think.

Everything he said ^^

I also found this to be quite helpful in getting started with the swap.

All that you will need to know is pretty easy to find on the net once you start searching and reading. If you have some money to toss around and don't want to hassle with junkyard diving L&L does sell kits to drop the motor right in. However they are a lil pricey and as was mentioned their motor mounts aren't the greatest. http://landlproducts.com/list.aspx?cID=1

Yup. If your engine has a hatchet weight behind the harmonic balancer, it's externally balanced. If you're not sure, the block will be marked D9TE.

The motor in my truck seems to sound like it is a 351/400m correct is so it sounds like the broncograveyard ones will work better but this would be using a truck block correct?

I have no fucking idea what you are trying to say. From what I can correlate from your run-on sentence is this. Yes, bolt the broncograveyard engine mounts onto your 460 and bolt the fucking thing in the engine bay.

You need to figure out for sure exactly what you have, your cost will climb fast if you have to swap the trans because you didn't know what motor was in there to start with.
A 75 would not have had a 351m/400 stock as far as I know unless they showed up in the f100 way earlier then the other trucks.
Am i using a god damn truck block or a car block. fuck that hard no need to be a dick
What are you talking about car or truck block?

I used a 460 from a 73 Lincoln in my 79 Bronco with a 351m, used the same trans, swapped truck 460 mounts into my frame and use a newer 460 truck oil pan, no big deal. The Hooker headers were a bit pissy and also used a mini starter. Not much compression on a 74 and up 460, what like 8.3 but at least you get more torque and get rid of the modified motor, they are lame.
