Best Tips for Breaking in a New Camshaft
http://www.horsepowermonster.com -- The
first few minutes of operation will determine the long-term survival of
your flat-tappet camshaft. More agressive lobe designs, stronger
valvesprings and changes to the additives in modern motor oils makes a
"wiped" cam lobe much more likely than in the days of classic muscle cars.
These are a few very important tips for properly breaking in your high
performance flat tappet camshaft.

Only one hard pull and the rest less than 1/3 throttle angle...
demonstrating the vehicle's exceptional torque curve. Iron heads, No
headers, just C8 Thunderbird manifolds. Car is LOUD!
Project 460 Fox Mustang Part 2
Porting and polishing the cylinder heads, assembling and firing up the 460.
This engine was built for Project 460 Fox Mustang when the plan was for a
street/strip car. After finding a super deal on a lot of go fast(er) parts,
the plans have changed. This engine will be sold and a new, more powerful
motor will be built for mainly drag racing. To see the engine run, skip
ahead to 5:50. Thanks for watching!
Specs on this engine are...
1978 460 Ford Engine Std. bore
New Speed Pro flat top pistons
new rings and bearings
new high volume oil pump and pickup
new Fox Mustang oil pan
New Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold
New HEI distributor

D3VE cylinder heads ported and polished
Holley 780 cfm vac secondary carb
Ford 460 trying to "WOT launch" from dead stop to 90 mph
Just me messing around... Trying to launch WOT requires "pedaling" to
control wheelspin even with a spool. New carburetor!! 650 Holley DP with
custom 1:1 linkage and ford kickdown by myself. This very mild 460 engine
is well matched- cam, carburetor, and intake are all done making power at
5500 rpm. Still running manifolds also. Had some carburetor heat after a
1 hour drive.
440 Camshaft drive FAIL!!!
So our rebuilt 440 with only 300 miles (at most) on it, developed a problem
when stopping at a traffic light, it wouldn't idle. It had lost 20 deg. of
ignition timing, so we twisted the distributor, and it ran well again. Then
a short time later it did the same thing again, another 20 deg. of timing
lost. We couldn't twist the distributor far enough, so had to pull and
adjust the drive gear, to get it firing at the right time, but this time it
wouldn't run quite right, and lost top end power.
We tried everything a group of us could think of, but in the end pulled off
the timing cover, to discover that the single bolt drive with 1 locating
pin had suffered a major failure! We hope no valves are bent, but are still
determining that, 2 chrome moly pushrods are bent, the timing sprocket is
trashed, and we are NOT Amused!!! These were all brand new name brand
parts, so why did they fail???
We will be going with a 3 bolt camshaft sprocket retainer this time!

460 BIG BLOCK FORD MUD TRUCK RIDEALONG LETTIN THOSE 54" BOGGERS EAT!!
Decided to do a video with little different perspective. This is a
ridealong with Kamron in his Ford 460 big block on 54" Boggers with 4 wheel
steering. We got hung up on some off-camber ruts, so Kamron worked that 4WS

a cool video! Christy in her Chevrolet 4WD/4WS mudder on skidder tires was
