Default 1973 460 V8 rebuild

Looking for NA 500FT Lbs. 1973 engine, came from a car. Will be going into a truck. I have 98% of an engine here, including heads. Round ports. Will be running 2x300CFM 2bbls with progressive throttle linkage and a 265 bumpstick.


Possible on 87 octane? Y/N

I will be converting it to unleaded. It's getting a full rebuild, including the heads, so unleaded capable valve seats/valves/etc etc will be used. It will be unleaded compatible when I'm done.

My rigs:

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!

Don't touch the compression. Going to 95octane would open a few doors for ya though.
