George! I used a Ford Motorsports crank.....Ross pistons......And a set of
SCJ rods I had laying around! The 521 I am gonna build ......will be a
Motorsports crank and Crower rods......And most likly Wiesco
pistons.....have not gotten it all sorted out as of yet! One thing for sure
this next motor will be using some factory Ford heads....Or maybe some of
them new Trick Flow heads...either way I am staying away from them big SCJ
sized ports and valves! As much as I like a real screamer in the HP
department I am building this one to run well anywhere........and that is
gonna require a tamer cam......less head.......and a huge attempt by me to
not build it for power above 6000RPM....:-) But anyone planning a stroker
Big Block beware! These motors will shed running gear like it is growing on
trees! Even a real mild 521 that we built for a friends dually tow rig will
spin the rear wheels at a 40 MPH roll.....and thats a stock headed, real
mild cam engine! Plus it can swing 14 MPG on the freeway unloaded....
Nothing like cubes to get the job done! The friend with the dually.....he
has one of the nastiest trail trucks in Wisconsin (Rodent exterminator)
which was in Four Wheelers top truck challenge a few years ago.......that
truck is FE powered....dual predators, Nascar heads.....the works....all
bolted into a 427 Side oiler! Which is also stroked to 454 cubes! He is
considring a 521 for that truck now after seeing what the 521 is like in HP
and torque! And he is as dedicated a FE dude that ever lived!

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Steering setup ... more questions

Schu,

Doubt if you'll need the adjustable drag link since you already have a 76 and
the integral steering box and everything is already there for you......You
see, I put a 79 box into my 69, and there were some slight differences, but
the box steers enough in each direction for me to get "lock to lock".......

Don't forget you'll have to get the new pitman arm, since the 76 has a ball
joint built into it, and the 78 drag link will come with a ball joint for
that end....the Superlift part just has a taper to accept the 78 ball joint.
Also, someone said to make sure the tapers in the steering knuckles are the
same, and yes, they are for 76-79....

Good Luck!

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Re: Unibodies

Folks,
After rereading my original post I want to apologize for possibly
misleading people into thinking that the Unibody trucks had no frame by
the vagueness of the paragraph. As we know, it was constructed
conventional automobile style like a '57-59 Ranchero, which differed from
the traditional truck contruction of separate cab and bed. The posting
should have been titled "Why Ford started welding everything together".
Ford was applying this philosophy on a much larger scale than you first
think. But if you look at the entire product line it paints a much
clearer picture.
My apologies,
Brett

Hmmm, I've never heard of FE blocks having that sort of problem... Either
way your best bet would be to find another FE block
(352/360/390/406/410/427/428) engine to drop in, as any other type of engine
would require you to change out your tranny as well. 360's and 390's are
fairly easy to find (depending on where you live), and over course you might
just need a new head gasket on this motor.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Matching Tranny to Engine...

Hi there. I was following the thread about matching a C-6 up with a 460. I
have a similar situation. I have a '67 F-250 with the original, tired old
FE 352 in it, and it has about 20-30 lbs. compression on number 4 cylinder.
But it has a good-working C-4 tranny that looks like it was rebuilt
sometime in the last decade.

Question is: how interchangable are the Ford V-8's of that era? Do the FE
blocks share the same bolt pattern with the 351W V-8? And where do the
Cleveland's fit in? Are they the same pattern, or do they have their own
bell housing pattern?

It's a good C-4 tranny, but I'm having a harder time finding FE engines,
and I have a good line on a couple of Windsor engines, and one Cleveland.
But I will rethink the whole deal if I have to go out and buy a tranny to
match the engine.

Subject: Re: FTE 61-79 - W heads

How to Rebuild your small block Ford by Tom Monroe is ok,,,, since the 351W
is a small block, everything you know about a 302 will be good,,, except
for the few differences... among them are higher torque specifications on
head, rod and main bearing bolts + others...

As far as I know 351 W 2v and 4v heads are the same, only the intake was
different.

If you want big valves, be sure to find a 351 W from a car, and at least
not the 1975 truck head,,, or later car heads.... No problems at least to
put in the large valves from the early years in those heads from later
years with small valves.

No multiple carbs offered from factory....

Remember, the 351W engine has same size main bearings as 429 and 460,,,,
rather big crank....

I wrote a post a little while ago about the 351W,,, but can't remember
when....

How much hp do you want, and where do you want the torque to be ?

I love this engine.... nice Ford stuff.

The 428 and 429 were available in T-Birds,LTDs,etc.. only "radical" one

As far as I know all light duty truck engines from 61-79 except the 360

Well mechanical failure aside, I had a mild problem with this in my Escort.
Problem was from living in a humid climate, and not driving the engine long
enough to warm it up. After about 2 months, I noticed a small wisp of grey
on my dipstick. I thought I lost a head gasket. Then I started asking
around. Seems it was a common problem on short run vehicles in the area.
After I found that out, I changed the oil, and always let it get warm before
I shut it down. Problem went away.

All depends on what ya wanna do with the truck. Im not real familiar with the
352's but have had a 390 in the past. Was a good engine. As for water in the
oil, I can think of two things, Blown head gaskets which are relatively easy
to fix. The other option is a cracked head or block letting the oil & water
mix. Obviously, the block is the worst of all the items, but could lead to
you choosing a different size engine. And again, that size & type depends on
what you have, what you wanna do, and how much work you'll accept to do it.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Drive Shaft Strength

Hi,
Measure the OD (Outside diameter)of a truck or car shaft with a 460 or
other vehicle with a high output motor and also check the metal thickness.
If the OD is the same or bigger and the material thickness is the same or
thicker, the shaft itself should be OK. That doesn't mean that yoke will
take the torque; but measure the pins. That should give you a good idea.
If the OD's and thickness are smaller, then it's pretzel city. Why not
stay with a stock shaft?

Hey
well if i was to do a engine swap i would trie and go for the 352 again just
because of the shorter stroke and quiker acceleration though if you want to
go out and pull stumps stick with a built 390 im recomending FEs here because
it will make the swap so easy. just because all you have to do is pull the
old and put in the new. well hope this helps
