Hello. Long-time BB Ford enthusiast. Recently completed a build on a relatively mild 460 w/ compression ratio at or below 10:1. Experiencing hard starting, especially after engine reaches operating temperature. After cooling, engine will once again sart as normal. Any suggestions? Thanks! RWA

Timing? Heat Soak on the starter?

New Member Empty Hot/hard starting issues w/ 460

Post  rwa460 on July 19th 2011, 6:29 pm

Been down both roads. It may come down to a matter of timimng. Have high torque starter w/ blanket. Big tube headrers are radiaiting a lot of heat. I've not experienced a case of hard restart this severe, except in higher compresion motors; 11.5:1 and above. This motor was built to be a "nitrous baby" w/ .180 dished TRW (now Speed Pro) forged pistons. I'm thinking it ought to perform w/ reasonable manners on 93 octane pump gas. I appreciate your thoughts.

imo a 460 w/healthy starter will not need a heat shield like a Chevrolet. I would say you have a weak starter or too muck timing.
