Don you do not have to pull the heads to change intakes; however, you do
have to pull both valve covers and a very good friend is required if the
original intake is cast iron becuase it weights about 80 Lbs (no ----).

Good question no answer. I can tell you at around 350 ft lbs a 3 spd
top loader will make a substantial mess.

Spread bore means that 70% of the carb flow is on the secondaries +/-.
A squar bore is typically equal secondaries and primaries.

Aah Daver, I just funnin' a little! I learned along time
ago, when a man asks a question and gets an answer. Only to
turn around and ask the same question again, Well it maybe
he ain't lookin' for an answer at all! But confirmation he
made the right decision! When the cheapest thing in the
whole Dang gum deal is so astronomical that it throws the
whole "Do it yourself" kittincaboodal in the cra... (can't
say that)... shi... (can't say that neither)... Trash! Bet
the Farm!
I'm just having a little fun with the person who posted on
the cab mounts. I would have done some of the work myself
then took it to a weld shop and had the welding done. But
that's me!

Yo, Yo, Yo! Cooling experts, Yes Daver!
A little repost here. My '73 according to the build sheet
(I don't want to hear it, just don't what to!) has extra
cooling. I have a radiator from a '94 5.0 Mustang. T5 trans.
I want to add an external Trans filter and cooler in the
future, with or without the switch. Would the modern
radiator cool more efficiently than the old technology?

Email me the pictures, perferrably JPG (Jpeg) format (don't use 100%
quality as it makes it huge) and I'll post it to the web site. Then
any of the membership who may be able to ID it can help. Also, what
year did you say it was again? If its 67(65?)-85 Ford may be able
to give you a build sheet which would tell you what it came from
the factory with. Let me know if you need the info for a build sheet.

Modern radiators generally (though not always) have more
fins per inch than older ones, translating to better
cooling. Also, when buying a replacement, you can sometimes
specify a higher fin/inch unit. Count the fins per inch
on both to know if there's a difference. Are they the
same physical size?

If someone was willing to administer it, I wouldn't mind
hosting a mini-van web site (we have more than enough web
space to do it) and I'd help them setup a Ford mini-van
emailing list.

Jim, I think you hit the nail on the head. Its not that
I have anything against mini-vans (just the women who drive
them with 10 screaming kids and aren't paying attention to
the road) but the topics would definately be different than
what we see on this list. I suppose one could always say
"my Ranger is giving me problems" rather than "my mini-van"!

I liked the ol honey comb style radiators the best, these used the tubes
as fins and were very densly packed. The problem is they are hard to
find and even harder to get worked on, They quit making these when high
production on the assembly lines became important.

I have a dump truck radiator on my truck and my cooling system holds
just shy of 7 gallons of coolant.

to answer the question I personally do not feel old or new matters as
long as you make sure you have enough to cool adiquitly.

I have a '69 360 with a Holley 4150, 600CFM. It has never run real good,

The 460 is a "385 series" big block.
The 351M is a "335 series" small block

Dont waste your money on a 351M, it is a slug and that is all there is =

Dont waste your money on a 351M, it is a slug and that is all there =
is to it.=20
It is a Gas hog that cannot make horse power. The 400 is not much =
better. If=20
your going to spend on something, find a pre 72 429 or 460. A 2v 429 had =
over=20
400 ftlbs of torque. These engines will bolt up to your trans too. If =

i agree, if you want performance the 351M is a waste of time and money. =
the 400 is better. or go to a windser stroked to over 400 cubes if you =
want small block, go 460 for bigblock.

if you want to spend a little more, want a small block and want more top =
end power then supercharge a late model windser motor or build a 400 =
with a set of early 351C heads. te aftermarket supports this swap and =
it will make good bottom with a top end rush most small blocks would be =
jelous of. i know a local guy who has a set of heads for sale, but they =
aint cheap. they are however better then aftermarket windser heads and =
there really isn't anything else available for the 351M/400 motor in the =
head dept. if u want info on going this route let me know. ( i have =
bench raced this combo several times but continue to build 460s as i =
have most parts already to keep the price down.)

sleddog

ps - don't get me wrong the 351m is not a bad motor, but it really isn't =
a good platform for building 400hp or more. that is the reason the 351m =
is not supported by the aftermarket performance companies very much.
