Post engine swap

I am in the process of swaping a 1995 Ford, F-250 5.8 L engine for a 1985 460, 7.5L. Can I use the same wiring. Oh! the 460 in Duraspark II.

Welcome! Please start a seperate thread in the correct section (or this one could be moved, really).

If you mean the wiring harness, then they would be different, especially because its a carb'd (not EFI) motor. What transmission does it have? If it is an automatic you will have problems with this swap because the transmission is computer controlled with the engine. You can get aftermarket transmission controllers, but they are pricey.

So the 460 is carb'd, and if the F250 is auto you'll need a trans controller or do a Manual swap. The "Wiring Harness" from the old engine will not work on the 460 beings it is Carb'd.
