I'm debating on rebuilding my 455 Olds in my CVX-20 or swapping to a Ford 460. One of the determining factors $$ wise is if I can get all the bits to do this swap (3 point mount, bellhousing, PTO and exhaust manifolds).
Does anyone have any 460 Ford bits they are willing to sell that meets the criteria?
A BBC won't fit in the CVX-20, the engine bay is too narrow.
I also don't believe Berkeley made a 'Packajet' version of the BBC with the 3 point mounting system.
Most of the Hardin stuff is also 4-point (from what I've seen so far), which won't work in my boat without re-engineering the whole installation, which I really don't care to do-
The CVX-20 was only available with the BBO or BBF. I would like to keep this as 'bolt-in' as possible.
i have a complete 460 setup 3 poin mount ,logs to dist,still in boat.
engine is fresh been sitting.
hours unknown tt on hull is 264 ? off the top of my head.
engine ran last year at this time, 60 psi oil pressure at idle.
i'll see if i can post up some pictures.
i'm planning on parting whole deal .. then to the land fill with the hull.
