^What he said.
And very interesting engine.
What is that on the bottom of the fuel pump, canister type fuel filter?
(And a Delco product. Interesting…)
I’ve never mothballed an engine for an indefinite period, but would think that it would be full of oil and also not missing the oil filter?

OK, just when I thought this cool thread couldn't get better, it did! [emoticon]

I had never heard of a 410 either, but it sounds totally awesome. The story behind this engine is very interesting too; I'm looking forward to the updates!

And once again, Kenny, thank you for taking the time to continually update this thread with so many details and pics. I know I'm not alone in saying that many of us are thoroughly enjoying it. [emoticon]


Thank you, I appreciate that you follow my thread and I appreciate your comment.

I've know about 410s for years. I was in the automotive business most of my life and always been a Ford man.

I am very excited about the engine and looking forward to going and getting it next week.

He had it on Craig's List for about 4 weeks, all anybody wanted was the crankshaft and he said he was offered $1000 for it a few times but he wanted to keep all together. I was surprised that it was on there for that long.

The extra stoke was to try and get those big old Mercurys thru the intersecting before the light turned red again.

Yes, its a canister filter. That AC Delco pump really dates the engine.
I haven't seen one in years but very pleased that he put that kind of fuel pump on the truck.

Most older Ford truck back in the 60s and early 70s had that style of pump and filter. Here's what the fuel filter looks like.

I'm going to open it up when I get it home and see how everything inside looks and make sure that the cam has the prober break-in lube on it.

Well it looks like I'm the proud owner of a pair of correct 1966 Mercury 410 Valve covers.
Now I need to find the correct air filter housing.

When we were kids my dad had an RV shop. We minions were his work force and wired up all the tow vehicles to campers and trailers. The early 70's Ford pickups that were "Camper Special" had a factory camper plug under the front drivers side corner of the bed. The bracket that held the recptical almost always had a pair of Vise-Grips holding the nut in place so the guy/gal on the assembly line could air gun the bolt. They seldom took the Vise Grip off. It was good supplier of Vise Grips. It the later years when a F250 or F350 Camper Special came into the shop we'd find a rusty pair of Vise Grips still there!

I was the 2nd owner of a 1972 F-250 camper special so I didn't get the free vise-grips.

I was the original owner of a 1979 F-250 camper special, still no vise-grips.

I feel cheated, LOL

Well, it is possible that by 1978-1979 Ford figured out how to fuse the nut to the bracket and eliminate the need for the Vise Grips.......

I'm sure it was getting pretty expensive. [emoticon]
