So you're saying that the 2 are interchangeable?

Came out tonight after being at the hospital for about an hour, 8:30 to
9:30, opened the door on the '78 F150 W/Overloads and noticed that the dome
light wasn't working. Further inspection found the headlights and ignition
wern't working either. Oh well says I, must be a poor connection. The guy in
the passenger seat commented that someone must have stolen the battery. Yup,
there is was, gone. Oh for the opportunity to get medieval on this thiefs
butt.
    The Dream Truck that I'm waiting for good weather to sandblast the
frame, springs and all that stuff, has a factory hood lock in the Lariat
donor cab. Thought it was a dumb idea till tonight. There the whining is
over.
    Am using Endura High Build Primer and Dark Jade Metallic for all the
underbody stuff. Yeah, I know, weird! I like weird.

I guess there's a reason our local hospital has cameras in the parking
lot. Here I was thinking they were trying to catch me parking in the
reserved parking. ;]
   My next door neighbor has 2 pieces of chain bolted to the inside of
his hood and radiator frame then padlocks them. It's worked well for
him.

Later!

Date: Sun, 20 Aug 2000 14:23:25 GMT

FTE,

I've got a '68 Ford F100 that I bought four years ago.  It had 42k miles on
it, and the body is in great shape.  I would really like to convert it to
four wheel drive.  However, I'm not sure of the best way to go about doing
this.  I've been told it is easiest to graft in a solid axle, transfer case,
and other parts from a donor truck, but I've also considered finding a
'67-'72 four wheel drive truck and swapping the frame to mine.  Is there a
best route?  I'm in the Navy, so I don't get a whole lot of time to work on
it.  I've sent in questions before to the group, and I've always been amazed
by the depth of knowledge ya'll have regarding Ford trucks.  Thanks for your
help.

You can use a 400 crank in a 351W block by simply turning the crank snout
down for the Windsor damper.  I didn't say anything about being
interchangeable.

Dont you also have to machine the counterweights down to clear the block?

So a 351M crank is not the same as a 351W crank...right? So the book is
wrong...

Take my word for it.  It is worth saving and can be saved..  Penetrating oils and
patience may save most of the pistons.  If after several days of this and you aren't
willing to wait longer, try a little heat on each piston with a torch -  not much heat,
but enough to break them loose.  Be careful and I'll bet you can do it..

Good luck,

The trouble I've always had is under the hood - usually under and around the carb(throttle body).
Never had one in the cab, but I've had several wires de-insulated under the hood by the little
rodents.  Can be very costly to replace wiring..

You're not getting anywhere by proving that the guy made a mistake in the
sentence.  We all know that the cranks are different.  It doesn't mean that
the whole book is loaded with bad information.  Get over it already.  If you
want to prove that the "M" means... whatever, go do some real research and
find the information to back up your facts.  Quit trying to disspell
everyone elses information.

yes I do beleive that the Bronco II  & the Rangers do share the same front
sheet metal & suspension parts.Being as  tho it is an ' 87 it should be EFI.
I do beleive that the rearend will hold up for a little while with a 351
Windsor.

From: Brett L Habben <bhabben juno.com>

Folks,
All this talk about beating out pistons inspired me to tear into a motor
today.  Due to the local drought, the lake has dropped 40 feet and the
marina is cleaning out the cove.  My neighbor was 'fishing'  with his
F-450 (FTE content).  The routine was dive down, hook onto something
stout, and drag it up onto shore (great fun!)  Amongst the 'prizes' was a
sunk/rotted (beyond saving) wood Chris-Craft.
Well, to make a long story short, this V8 had been laying on the bottom
of the lake for at least 10 years and it was not stuck!  The cylinders
with open valves have some pitting (honeable), but a couple were
completely dry.  Being a boat motor, it was low hours and had hardly any
cylinder wear.  I would be tempted to just do a
rings/bearings/gaskets/valve job and call it good to go.
Just another testimonial to "You don't know until you tear it down".
Brett

Azie,

I agree with Stu, the 2.9L engine has some major issues with cracking heads.
 My dad has one of these engines in his truck, and after blowing a head
gasket we found a cracked head.  To fix the problem for good, we purchased a
new set of World Castings heads
(http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.worldcastings.com/stockreplace.html) from Dover Heads
(http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.doverheads.com).  The World Castings heads are much thicker and
eliminate the problem.  If I remember correctly they where $225 each for
complete heads.  Other than the head issue I would say that it isn't a bad
little engine.  It's not a V8, but it isn't gutless either.

So that you know, it is EFI and it has an air horn kinda like a 302 with an
upper and lower intake manifold.

Also, I wouldn't swap a 351 unless you upgrade almost the entire drive
train.  One other thing to keep in mind is that a 351W is going to be a bit
heaver then the stock 2.9L.
