    my nephew sent me a couple pics of his school shop project .looks like a 460 Ford
    he is supposed to disassemble and rebuild it .wow, i remember my shop project .it was a Briggs and Stratton
    that had probably been disassembled at least 60 times. we didn't have to make ours run but he does. i am glad to see there are schools that are still teaching things like this. my old school dropped all the shop classes:nonono: Untitled.jpg Untitled tt.jpg

    Yeah I think I'll be able to put it back together I have all the bolts zip lock bagged and labeled. Got a late jump in the engine today but was able to take off the oil pan and get out 6 of the pistons before running out of time.

    that is the way to do it. soon you will be able to tell where the bolt goes just by looking at it.

    We also had briggs and stratton engines that had to run when reassembled. For extra credit i rebuilt my 289 that went on to last about 15 years on the bottle till the blower melted a piston.

    Here in CA they would probably allow kids to wear sandals in shop class just so no one's feelings or freedom of expression or self-esteem got hurt.

    I like how they're making highschoolers lug all that 460 iron around. :nice: NOTHING is lightweight in a 460. In constrast, I've been playing with a Suzuki Samurai lately and the entire 1.3L engine is aluminum. It's only about 175lbs fully dressed...10lbs lighter than me.
