I'm putting a 351 M from a '78 TBird into an '85 F250. What do I do about
the oil pan and motor mounts? The oil pan touches the cross member.
According to the sticker, this truck used to have a 460 in it. Will 460
motor mounts and oil pan adapt to the 351 M?

Thanks in advance.

The motor mounts will not work, the 351M/400 had their own unique motor
mounts. The oil pan will probably not work either because of the difference
in the blocks. You will need a truck oil pan and 351M/400 motor mounts.

I blew the U-joint out of the slip yoke on the Dodge a week ago, and
replaced it no big deal. I took the slip yoke out to do it, and when I
put it back in, I didn't align the u yokes front and rear. Today I am
pulling out of my driveway and I break the U-joint again! I went and
talked a mechanic and he said that by not ligning the yokes up, they
work against each other and eat up the driveline. So if you pull the
yoke off, make sure that you line the ends up when you put it back on.

I was able to find a stick today, but this one does not have a bearing
cap either, so I will go by FORD :-( tommorow and see if they have any,
or try a different guy at NAPA and see what he can find in the books.

Thanks
