Default putting a 460 in place of a 6.9

well I dont feel like trying to find more 6.9 parts, I dont know much about diesels, so I was wondering if a 460 would just drop in and bolt to the tranny?? it is a 4 speed no overdrive

Motor mounts or using the original 6.9 mounts and relocating them..Pretty sure its already drilled for da mounts too. Read the thread below about bellhousing

Dude you still haven't fixed that thing?

I think the diesel, 460, and small blocks are all different bolt patterns, so you'd at least need a bellhousing.

From what i understand the 6.9 and 460 use the same bellhousing. The 6.9 has an adapter ring to mate to the tranny. You also need to think about accessory brackets and fuel lines. Along with all that extra wiring.

Fuel lines will be a piece of cake...Just use a ford inline fuel pump and a regulator if you are running a carb...probably just plug the return line or even utilize it if you are doing an EFI 460...
6.9s aren't my favorite engine so I don't blame you for wanting to swap
You can always use the wanted section here to source all of the parts to do it...I'm sure the guys here got what you are looking for
