Since the distributor is in the front on the 460 and you replaced the water pump check the connection plug coming from the distributor. If you disconnected it when removing the water pump you may not have made the connection tight enough to complete the connection. Look for pinched wires also. And your engine does not have points. You have a breakerless ignition system in the distributor. The air gap should be set at 8 thousands of an inch. Check the gap. Good luck.

Ethanol really causes problems in cars that sit around.Thanks for us going green huh?It decomposes non-metal parts in the gas system.If the car sits around for something like 6 weeks the gas does go bad.You have to siphon the tank as much as possible.When filling up,add octane boost first then gas.It still may not work though.I did all that for a scooter and it still didn't work.So if you try it,when you add gas,probably only use 4 or 5 gallons,so you don't waste too much money if it doesn't work,and it is enough to mix the octane boost fairly well.Good luck bro'!That's all i have for now.And gas is gas no matter where you buy it.All those additives the companies claim clean this or that is just sales.Since fuel injection came out,companies are required to add a certain amount of detergent to keep injectors clean anyways.And 93 octane is not better than 87 octane enough to pay 20 cents more per gallon.

Was looking at posts and other sites. I take it that some relays are even under seats. Anyway, Apparently the ECU relay and the ECC relay are linked. When properly operating the ECC brain sends a signal to the ECC relay and the ground wire is tan/green. The brain can be throwing the signal and the relay terminals are not receiving the signals, so the relays cannot switch.
Although you have replaced some relays, you need to check your plugins for these 2 relays.

SOURCE: I have a 95 Ford F350 with the 460 motor. It started running fine when cold but after it warms up it starts to run rough, lose power, and runs REAL rich. I'm only getting a little more than 2mpg.
It Sounds like it is staying in the "cold start" routine. It also sounds like the diagnostic computer is not working right, because it must be rich and the O2 is not telling you a thing.
I would start by looking for a temperature sensor. You may have 2, with 1 being for the dash and the other being for the engine controls. You want to replace the temperature sensor for the Engine controls. This will help get it out of "cold start" routine.
Change your thermostat. The onboard computer does not monitor operating temperature.
Fuel pressure regulator. Have pressure checked.It could be forcing too much gas in each time an injector opens.
If you can not do this yourself, tow it in. At 2 mpg it may be cheaper to tow it than to drive any distance for repair. The Mechanics are going to need some gas left over in it to work on the engine.
Also turn on ignition and energize the fuel pressure, check for leaking fuel lines. Put on fuelcap locks if fuel drops when parked.
For this much of an extreme problem, I would like to know what you find wrong with it. I hope my solutions help.
