Engine swaps are Great s long as you do your homework.
The Ford 460 block has quite large bores for its displacement. 514 is small for a strokers based on the 460. I wouldn't even call that a swap.
What you need to careful of is to not get carried away on the compression ratio when putting together a engine for a Class A Motorhome.
(This compression warning does Not apply to diesels.)
speaking of diesels There are really 2 kinds. one with and without Computers.
If you want to swap out a 6.2L GM or old 7.3L IDI Ford(navstar)diesel
The simplest replacement might just be a 12V (up to-97) 5.9L Cummins.
With ANY swap try to a get a transmission with the new engine.
