The 460 (7.5L) was the last Ford Big Block, discontinued in 1997. The 5.8 L is the 351 small block, the biggest engine in the Windsor small block family. First put in the F 250 in 1977. Now that being said, I have to look around to see if it will mate with your transmission....and I need to know that, if it's even an automatic or manual NP 435 ...4 speed manual? Or what?

No it won't. If the motor was an older 351m it would, but a Windsor motor is different from the 385 series big block (which is the engine family the 460 is from)

Well there you go. Thanks for the info Markand Norma ..I did know they were different blocks but didn't know if bell housing bolt patters were same, not to mention the 460 being simply too much engine for your transmission to hold up to

the transmission is a 4 speed AOD


Find a 429 or 460 iron bell housing. some 390 motor mount"s a 390 clutch pack or 351m bell housing and your in buisiness!
