To: FORDTRUCKS lofcom.com

My two 79 Broncos have a 351M and a 400 in them and I would agree that, stock, the 351M is a dog of a motor. It was one of the early smog motors and uses a lot of energy trying to keep itself emissions-clean. However, the 351M and the 400 share almost everything, except the crankshaft. If you rebuild the 351M with a 400 crankshaft you'll have an instant 400, and take it from me the 400 is a much better performer than the 351M.
They get about the same mileage, but the 400 has a lot more umph.
The 351M is actually a variant of the 351C, though greatly detuned. The 351C, 351M and 400 (often called the 400M) all share the bigblock transmission bell-housing pattern, so you can pull that 351M and bolt a 460 right up to that C6. (both of my trucks have C6's, btw) In fact, that's what I plan to do with my 351M-powered truck. I'm going to rebuild the 400 (it burns a lot of oil) and replace the 351M with a 460, or so I hope. Where'd I put that lottery ticket again? :-)
Fun fact - the 400 is one of the only "square" motors out there: bore and stroke are both exactly 4"

About the only thing that interchanges between 351C &351M-400 are the heads. The blocks look the same, but the deck hight is taller on the "M" motors. The bellhousings are completely different. The "C" motor uses the smallblk style and the"M" motor uses the 429-460 bellhousing style.
Camshafts will interchange between "M" and"C"s allso. If you want a power house, bore the 400 .040 over, cam the motor install aftermarket 4bbl and manifold freeflow exhaust, and pass everything but a gas station. I did in my shop truck and Ilike it. Realy woke it up for towing.This is in a82 F250.

Apologies if this is a repeat, it looked like the first message I sent didn't go through correctly.

If you want more power and torque, throw away the 351M and get a pre 72 = 429. It will bolt up to the C6, but you might want to look into a = different torque converter. If you find a 70 or 71 429/2V engine, they = had over 400 ftlb of torque.
72 and newer engines had a block change that raised the deck height that = lowered the C/R down to 9 to 1. Something to think about. If you going = to but money into the 351M you would be money ahead to invest in the = 429/460.=20

C6, its bullet-proof and can take a monsterous amount of torque.

I have a 1995 F150 4x4 and have went through 3 sets of front pads and 2 rotors,and am on the third set of calipers.I have heard of others with same problem, dealers can't seem to find the problem.

Halleluia my friend.
the 351m/400 large block motors produce very good torque thanx to decent cranks and large valves reminicent of the Cleveland motors. (only being a big block which left behind the problem of too light a block...
you can only bore a 351 Cleveland or 351 Boss out to 30 over.)

I have overhauled 351m, 351 Cleveland's, 400's and a 351 Boss.
The only shortcomings of these motors is really the low deck height.
These are great mid-rpm motors.

Don't dis this motor for lack of parts either. If you check magazines, there are plenty of 351m & 400 parts that will bolt-on, not to mention the number of custom shops out there to help you out.
