Got another ford!

Bought a 81' Bronco that supposodly has a 460 in it. Can someone confirm this by the pictures?? What transmission would be behind this? Its a square drain pan on the bottom... 17bolts... Im guessing C6? what size carb does this look like??? I bought it as a 'as is' project truck, so I've been going through it sorting things out. It runs great and has a good punch when I hit the throttle, but almost seems a little gutless when in gear. Any carb experts out there? And from what I can tell, this is not the stock engine. When buying parts, what should I ask for? I've been under the assumption its a mid 80's engine.

460 and the tag on the passenger valve cover should give u a indication of origion..the carb is a good selection check the timing and mixture plugs for wear and burn pattern then go from there.. Most likley a c6

the tag is pretty much worn away, but glad its the 460 like i was told. I put new plugs in, but the old ones where black and pretty carboned up. To set the carb, I turn the driver side screw until the engines rpm drops, than turn it back 1 whole turn, than do the same to the passenger side set screw. From there, I set the idle and than the timing. this sound correct?
