Scott the aluminum welding I tried was brazing. I practiced and practiced on
1x1x1/8 wall square tubing. The problem I found was aluminum doesn't turn
cherry red until it goes bye bye. If you can over come this timing part it is
a strong connection. I gave up and had a friend heli-arc my frame. Good luck.

Subject: What do I need?

Alright folks, I 've got a few questions I hope yawl can help me with. I had
planned on swapping out the 351M in my Bronco for a 460 or a 429 (I like
"big" motors!), but all of the motors I have found in my price range have
been junk. So, after talking to my father, who drives the Bronco as much or
more than I do, we have decided to just build-up the 351M.
The first thing I want to do is make it a 400M. As far as I know I only have
to change the crank. Is this the only difference in the two motors?
Secondly, I want to bore the block .030 over and raise the compression to
about 10:1. In order to do this with stock heads do I need to get high dome
pistons, and if so, what kind do you recommend?
Someone had mentioned 302 Cleveland heads before. I have never heard of
these, if I need to get different heads does anyone have any
The next thing is the cam. I want a rough idle with a powerband 2,000 and
5,000. Any size and manufacturer suggestions?
Finally, the intake and carb. What will be a good "middle-of-the-road"
intake. And, what kind of carb and what CFM would be best?

I guess over-all I would like about 400hp and need to know what kind of
combination would give me that. Another thing I need to keep in mind is that
I am not wealthy. I am planning on trying to stay in at about $1,000. Other
than the machine work, I'll do everything else myself. This is my first Ford
motor rebuild, my dad has built a few, 360's, 390's, and 302's, but all I
have done is few Chevy motors; 350's, 305's and a 327. I know its a lot of
questions, but any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, and may all your
travels require four wheel drive and all your journeys be made in a blue
oval. See Ya!
