Was it a big block that came out of it? if not motor mounts exghaust manafolds and make sure the tranny will bolt up first


You can make any engine fit you just have to do alot of figureing. We still put chevy motor in our ford demo cars lots of welding and simple wireing


Plus you may have to get a different cross member for the tranny it may sit back farther


Compare the rebuilt 460 with the original 430 and you can answer your own question......maybe nothing - maybe quite alot.

I have a 65 Lincoln Continental smoking a lot from the right side of the tailpipe
