Change out 460 with.......any ideas? Richard 4-29-12  
I understand the torque requirements of the 460 big block, so I'm only asking because of the horrendous gas mileage, is there a small block, or a diesel I could place in a 1988 Coachmen 27 Foot Class C Motorhome, Ford 460 rv?

NOW OVER ONE YEAR AND 5000 MILES WITHOUT ANY PROBLEM. I am confident the following solve the earlier 460 stalling, stuttering, lack of power issues. These engines were made pre ethanol and were intended to run off of 100% gasoline. I have listed the following that has worked for me.
1. Stay away from Interstate truck stops for fuel.
2.I use the following fuels ONLY and in order of my experience with performance:
a.BP High Test. Preferred
b.High test Shell, Phillips 66, Sunoco
c.EVERY tank use SEAFOAM = TO # GALLONS FILLED, 1 bottle red label ISO HEET. THIS IS CHEAPER THAN ROAD SERVICE
I ALSO DID THE FOLLOWING MECHANICALS,
New better aftermarket in tank fuel pump and filter.
New ECM and Coil.
Wrapped the fuel line and fuel rail with insulation foil.
Installed an in line cooler (small transmission type) in the return line to the tank.
Banks cold air intake.

1st no direct replacement without trans also.
Computerized engine? Now its big work.
Unless you are going to run this another 100,000 miles you will not get your money back.

Just got a '88 Sarengeti Safari with Ford 460. No engine or owner's manual. Engine starts but won't keep going. Seems there is a secret switch when activated, cuts off the fuel pump. Anyone out there ever run into this or find the "secret" switch?
