I looked at the block tonight, and the thermostat is level with the

Could it still be a Cleveland?

The t-stat is level with the intake on the Ms so if it has a big block bolt
pattern it's a 351M/400.

The 351cleveland uses a 335 series block . The The 385 series block is for
the 429 and 460 and the bellhousing bolt pattern for them is the same as the
351M and the 400 . Here are some measurements I took on my 351 cleveland :
top 2 bolts are 5 -1/16 apart , the left ( drivers side ) from top to bottom
are 6 - 9/16 and then 3 - 5/8 . The right side ( Passenger side ) from top to
bottom : 5 - 7/8 and then 3 - 1/8 . These are just rough measurements without
bieng exact but close enough to figure out what the engine you have is or is
not .
Hope this helps .

Grady,

Only first gear is not synchroed in an NP 435, not sure about a T-18.
Anyone??
The NP 435 should have reverse over to the right and down.
T-18 should have reverse over to the left and up. I think there were a
few T-18's
that had the same shift pattern as an NP 435 but I have never seen one like
that. I may be way off here. Anyone??

They are both bullet proof and super tuff tranny's. I prefer the NP 435
myself but would take a free T-18 in a second.

Both tranny's would mount to a 400 if you have the right bell housing.

Good Luck,

Stu

Tranny:
I'm still trying to locate a reasonably priced T19, (fully sync'd 4spd
with 5:11 1st). They seem to be pretty rare. Basically; I need to fix
the NP435 I now have (2nd doesn't sync); so I'd rather put the money
into a more drivable manual tranny, (can't convince myself to put in an
automatic).

I've heard that the T19 was used in '80 to '87 F250s and F300s. Does
this sound right, or does anyone know of a source on the West coast that
would accept a NP435 core, for a T19? Or for that matter; has anyone
done this swap before?


Let me check the local Mini-Merchant because I remember seeing an ad for
a guy that sold rebuilt T-18 & 19's. He did want the same back for a core
though if I remember right. As for your swap, I'm not sure about. I was
considering the same swap for my T-18 because it has 318k original miles.
(still works and handles what I give it though)
Although, after 20 years of shifting I'm starting to lean towards an auto
when the time comes.
Anyway if I find anything out I'll let you know.

I'd try something like a Comp Cam 260H. You should be able to use new
stock Ford valve springs without worrying about coil bind or not enough
spring pressure. Always use new lifters with a new cam.
It'll give a smooth idle, with good low to midrange torque increase.
Throttle response will be good. However, with the multitude of cam
manufacturers out there, you have quite a few choices to work with. Talk
with other people and see what they've used and you might even call a
couple cam companies and talk with their tech department. Good luck!

They easy way to tell is to put the pedal to the

My Cleveland has a vertical bolt pattern on the fuel

year/model #, so I can order one that will be fine.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Re: The Stumbler

John asked about what would make his truck stumble upon acceleration. I
would check the carbureter accelerator pump. To do this, (with engine not
running of course) look down carb throat and actuate throttle. You should
get fuel squirting out the instant you move the throttle. If this is not
happening you may need to adjust or repair the accelerator pump. You didn't
say if your truck was stumbling other than on acceleration so this may or
may not help you. If it is only on acceleration, this would be the first
thing I would check. Best Regards, Steve

Shouldn't you be able to buy a 'Ford AT kickdown kit' for most Holley's?
Perhaps you might be able to buy an entire carb with the linkage you need
from the salvage yard for about the same price as the kit. Removing the
throttle plates in order to get the throttle shaft out can be a bit tricky
because the phillips head screws have been peened at the tips which makes
them difficult to remove. It would be a good idea to peen the tips of the
screws after assembly so you don't risk them coming loose and falling into
the engine.
