Howdy Clare,
We just went though a bunch of soul searching on this "do it yourself"
project and made the decision to have a specialty shop do the work. Most
places either don't know what a case spreader is and if they do know they
don't think they are necessary. Without one you can not accurately preset
the bearing load. Like I said, a good shop was the way we went and that was
with a fair bit of expertise available. I've put them in by guess and by God
but I truly have no idea of whether those bearings are happy or not. If it's
a keeper, go the expensive route with the warranty and all.
Just my buck three eighty worth.

Guys, my brother just picked up a 67 F250 camper special with 3:55 rear
gears and a C-6 transmission. It had a 390 in it but it wore out. My brother
would like to use the truck as a daily driver and would like the list's
opinion on what engine to go with. He is considering the following:
351 Windsor or 351 Windsor long rod (custom built) or 360 or 390 with 360
heads or one of the 460's which he knows nothing about. Would the 351
Windsor save at the pump? What engine would you guys recommend for this
truck?
Thanks in advance for the info,
Roberta with 1965 custom cab.

both the 360 and the 352 have 3.50 stroke
the 352 has 4.00 bore, the 360 has 4.05 bore

Not really that odd- the 351 really measures 351.9 cid- which, if rounded,
would make it a 352. I think Ford must have decided to call it a 351 to keep
from confusing it with "THE" 352. There were some questions about this on
the FTE message board once- you might be surprised to find other situations
like this- such as a 302 (301.5cid) does not actually measure 5.0L- but more
like 4.94- which would be rounded to 4.9, but I'm sure it was done to avoid
confusion with the 4.9L (300cid).
I'm glad Ford did it this way. It's hard enough to get a button pusher
behind the counter at the local parts store to got the right part now- just
imagine what it would be like if you had to explain which 352 you were
talking about!

A Windsor block engine looks a lot like the 302; the
giveaway is that if the water outlet/thermostat housing
mounts on the intake manifold, its a Windsor. If the
water outlet/thermostat housing mounts on the block,
its a C or M.

> 2) What city does the "M" signify?

Officially, the M stands for "Midland", but the M block
series shares a lot of parts with the Cleveland, and many
mechanics at the time referred to these engines as
"Modified Cleveland". The terminology stuck, and thus
the reference "Modified" or "Modified Cleveland" is more
commonly used.

The 351M uses the same bell housing parttern as the 400,
429, and 460; the 351C uses the same bell housing pattern
as the 300 I6, 255, 289, 302, and 351W.

To the best of my knowledge, the 351C was last built for
the 1974 model year; the 351M replaced it for the 1975
model year in cars, and the 351M replaced the 360FE for
trucks for the 1977 model year.

> 3) External difference between 351 and 400?

there are no external visual differences between the
351M and 400. Just a different crankshaft and pistons.

Roberta, I would stay with the FE series engines(360,390). If he decides to
swap in another series engine, he'll have to swap a lot of other parts,
including trannies. The 390 is a good, strong engine with a good torque
curve that won't have to work very hard to get and keep his truck moving
down the road. Plus, he's got the extra power for passing and hauling fairly
heavy loads. I think smaller engines sometimes get poorer mileage because
they are working harder to do the same amount of work a bigger engine would
do. A 460 would have to do even less work than a 390, but then he'll have a
major swap job ahead of him. Just my opinion,

That stud should be a tapered bolt thru the axle and king pin. Leave the nut on
it a little less than flush and drive it out of the axle. Once it is out, you
should be able to drive the king pin down with big brass drift punch and big
hammer. May have to heat the axle if frozen. Good luck!

The wheelbase on the 65-66 F250 4X4 was 120 inches, the 2X was 115 or 129.
The F100 4X4 got the pretty bed in '66, the wheelbases had changed to fit
the standard body. The F250 4X4 soldiered on for another year with the
'57-'60 bed

The F350 would likely have been the same as the F250. Most were stake beds
anyway. I'm not sure if the 4X4 had a stretched wheelbase stakebed or not,
but I'm prety sure they didn't get the pretty bed. I'm just speculating,
but it could be a 2 wheel converted to 4 wheel. Stretching the wheelbase
would leave some strong evidence. Just my guess.

Subject: Re: 351W,C,M or 400

the 351W (Windsor) is the easiest to recognize. the valve covers have
only have 6 bolts holding them on (just like the 302) and the firing
order differs from the 302.

The 351C (Cleveland) is actualy related more to the M series family of
engines than the W series. it has 8 valve cover bolts, and the fuel pump
bolts are arranged in a verticle fashion. not next to the pump side by
side. telling a 351C from a 351M is a little tougher. the 351C has the
small block bolt pattern when bolting to a tranny. in other words it
will bolt up in place of where a 289,302,351W used to sit. 351C also has
a distinctive boss or is larger) at the distributer mount that is
different from the 351M/400. I've never owned a 351C so I am unable to
give better a description of it.

now for the 351M (Midland). Ford originaly designated the M to mean to
represent the Midland manufacturing plant but the dealers started
calling the motors "Modified clevelands" to give the buyer a higher
impression of a M series engine. The mechanics also refered to it as
modified clevaland due to its close resemblance with the 351C. the
351M/400 looks alot like the 351C but it has a big block bellhousing
pattern (just like the 429/460) also it lacks (or is smaller) a
distinguishing boss where the distributer mounts. everything else is
identicle to the 351C (8 valvecover bolts, verticle fuel pump bolts,
thermostat bolted to the block,)

the only difference with a 351M and 400 is the crank shaft and the
pistons they even share the same rods. all internal differences.

I hope this helps ya,

Ken just posted my 9" rebuild the other day. I don't think you need a
case spreader on a 9" to set bearing preload. After you have snugged up
bearings, it's easy to figure out how far (extra) carrier bearing
adjusters need to be rotated to get the pre-load. Each hole to hole on
side adjuster is .005 inches of side to side movement. Since I already
figured it out, all you have to do is read the article, :-)

Firing order I'm not sure on but as far as which is cylinder 1, a mechanic

Sounds like you're talking about the fender skirts. Yeah they are

Even then, they still have problems. I had a 67 Cadillac with a 426 which
the parts guys were forever trying to sell me parts for a 77 with a 425.
Totally different block, but to them it has just a cubic inch and I told

I think he (she? Sorry, I forgot the original poster) means the cowl where
the fresh air intake and the windshield
wipers are. This piece is galvanized on many makes, not just Fords. I sanded
mine just like everything else, then primed it, then painted it with the
finish coat. You might try wiping it down with thinner on cheese cloth that
matches your paint type just prior to the shoot. Mine has been in the hot
Texas sun for three summers. So far it has held up well. Keep your paint
code so that you can match later. Old Ford trucks that have been restored
are magnets for door dingers and dinghy drivers.

I'll second Jason on this one (it was Jason who posted that wasn't it?) Anyway...


Likely the Windsor would save a little at the pump, but probably not enough
to off-set the cost of the conversion (different tranny, different motor mounts,
etc.) ... A good tuned FE can pull down 12 regularly for mpg, at least mine
does with the 3.55 gears. I haven't gotten my 390 up to that 12 mark yet, but
my worn out 360 was there and the 390's at 10, so I'm hopin with a little tuning
I'll get it up to the 12 again ...

Subject: Greetings and questions, of course!

Hello and thank you, to all of you!
I am a long time 'lurker' (since '96 ?!) and have been a 'sponge' for the
entire time (there is MUCH great knowledge here!). I am the proud owner of a
'65 F 100 Custom Cab Camper Special named RDYNASR (Yep, "he's" posted in the
pictorials!) and have a question which I don't recall seeing discussed
before. I (and a truckin' buddy) are both "restifying" our 'rigs' and have
come to a hurdle which requires the expertise of this "distinguished panel".
Can someone clue 'us' in on the 'proper' color for the red on the hood
emblems of this vintage (61-66 that is)... Thom B. are you there? Alas, 35
years of California sun has been kind to the chrome but severely detrimental
to the once vibrant red portions of them.

Secondly, what is/are the differences between the wiring schemes of these
guys vs. the later (70's) trucks that "allow" the 'park lamps' to remain lit
when the headlights are on...is it the light switches (I doubt it, too easy!)
or in the wiring? I want to add some side marker lamps (like the 'later'
trucks) so all the other 'nitwits' can better see me at night.

Apologies for the 'long' post, and TIA for your feedback!

No problem. I have the same ailment from time to time.
The 9" isn't all that bad. But yes it does have it's shortcomings with a

stout, the (I hate to say this) GM 14 bolt is much stronger than the Dana
60.

Hey all, It's come time to either rebuild or replace my 351M, its leaking oil
bad out the back between engine and tranny, and I figured while I had it
pulled might as well rebuil it or put a new one in. so here is my question, I
know alot of you have gone to 460's in your trucks, I also know that the 460
will bolt up to the 351M tranny, my question is will the motor mounts need to
be changed? I'm sure they will but will the location be the same? and does
anybody know where I can get the right mounts?

Thanks

Subject: Intermittent wipers.

Good morning.

This is a not to all on the list that want intermittent wipers on there 73-79 Ford
trucks. I had been searching high and low ant the local yards for the box and the
switch for my truck. Unable to find 1 in a truck I went looking else where. The cars
of the 70's have a totally different plug, so I scrapped that idea for a bit. Last
weekend I found an 87 Ford truck with the intermittent wipers, so I grabbed the switch
and control box. Low and behold, plugs right in. The only minor difference is that
the new switch has a separate ground wire. No big deal. Both of my trucks now have
intermittent wipers. Next project, factory power windows.
Just thought I would share.

I would really say rebuild the 390. I have gotten between 11-13 mpg with
mine. It has 3:00 gears and a 9 inch rear end. As your truck is a 3/4 ton
I wouldn't put anything smaller in it. Bump up the compression, put a
torque cam in it and a tight torque converter and it should be very
reliable.

Keep in mind that a swap to any other engine will require a new transmission
because the bolt pattern is different on the trans to engine block flange.

Good luck
