Ford was unique in that it had two very different big-block engine designs during the height of the muscle car era. The original FE engine design was pioneered in the late 1950s, primarily as a more powerful replacement for the dated Y-block design. What began as torquey engines meant to move heavyweight sedans morphed into screaming high-performance mills that won Le Mans and drag racing championships throughout the 1960s. By the late 1960s, the FE design was dated, so Ford replaced it with the 385 series, also known as the Lima design, in displacements of 429 and 460 ci, which was similar to the canted-valve Cleveland design being pioneered at the same time. It didn't share the FE pedigree of racing success, mostly due to timing, but the new design was better in almost every way; it exists via Ford Motorsports' offerings to this day. Beginning in 1971, the 429 found its way between the fenders of Mustangs and Torinos in high-compression 4-barrel versions called the Cobra Jet and Super Cobra Jet, and they were some of the most powerful passenger car engines Ford had ever built. If the muscle car era had not died out shortly after the release of these powerful engines, without a doubt the 429 performance variants would be ranked with the legendary big-blocks of all time. In this revised editionof How to Rebuild Big-Block Ford Engines, now titled Ford 429/460 Engines: How to Rebuild, Fordexpert Charlie Morris covers all the procedures, processes, and techniques for rebuilding your 385 Series big-block. Step-by-step text provides details for determining whether your engine actually needs a rebuild, preparation and removal, disassembly, inspection, cleaning, machining and parts selection, reassembly, start-up, and tuning. Also included are some performance options to make your 429/460 even more powerful, plus a bonus chapter on the Ford 351 Cleveland, Ford's little brother to the big-block.… (mere)

This is a well laid out how to book. Filled with useful color photographs where relevant. When working on these engines you will refer to this book often. A must have for anyone who is thinking of working on these engines. ( )

Great resource, I was interested in this book for my teenage son, who is interested in anything to do with cars. He was so into it he did not put it down. He is planning on using this information this summer with the help of his cousin and father.

It is very informative, I like how the information is coded with icons to help focus the readers attention. Especially the "Save Money" parts, this is very beneficial to people with not a lot of money. ( )

What a great book & reference manual! They included what you would expect from a Workbench Series book – history and evolution of the 385 series, disassembly and machine work, etc…. Additionally they showed over 600 color photos, details about the reassembly and improving performance, plus they went into the finer points like ring gaps and how to degree the cam. Excellent book!

Wasn't really after the rebuilding portion of the book, although it was interesting and informative. What I really enjoyed was the history and the development stages of these monster motors. I have worked on one in a race/show car, and made it run very well. A street legal and driveable Fairlane running in the 11's. ( )
