im looking at 454 out of a 1 ton truck, he wants 900 for it but its complete and running and he says its a 4 bolt. does this seem like a good deal? he doesnt know the what the miles are and he says all 1 tons have 4 bolt main, does anyone know if this is true. thanks

so it may or may not need a rebuild? the last 454 4 bolt blk i bought i paid 200 for it. but that was hot tanked and checked for cracks and line bore checked. last summer i bought a running 454 out of a 75 short box pickup with the 781 oval ports for 500. so to me 900 for that motor is high.

I would tell him $500 if he dropped it off at your place tell him take it or not. I got a 78 full size running sb for $300 del. (sold the brass rad for $6.00 in scrap and gave my buddy some parts for his truck too:D )

thanks for the help, ill think ill hold off on buying it and wait for a better deal. But is there any way to tell if its a 4 bolt, do all 1 tom trucks have a 4 bolt mains?

I haven't own all the 1 ton trucks with 454's, I'm still driving one. I've owned 6 and parted out a few more and haven't found a 4 bolt block in any of them. I agree 900 is high for a truck motor.
