Go to your local auto parts store, they will have all the
different
sizes and lengths.  Very cheap too!!!  Pick up a flaring
tool while
you are there too.  You don't need a $65 model if you are
just
planning on doing one vehicle.

SVF service is great, but no need to mail order that, their
shipping
is kinda pricey!!

Troy,

The 351C comes in several flavors. One is a two barrel
version which would be fine for replacing a 'Y' block,
but it will not be a bolt-in. The other versions of
351C's are 4V engines and are more suitable for racing
than 4x4 use. I think a 390 'FE' block from the early
'60's would be more compatible with your truck and
give better results all around. I can't tell you what
changes you will need to make, but some of the things
that you need to look at are, motor mounts,
transmission/bell housing mating, transmission input
shaft, radiator inlets/outlets, & exhaust outlets.

   But it's cheap insurance against a kink when you're almost done.  The
last thing you want to do is just bend the lines with your thumb and fingers
- high risk of a kink.  Coffee cans of various sizes work nicely for large
radius bends, especially because of those grooves they have.  A spray paint
can is about as small a radius as I'd try without a bender, and that seems to
flatten the tube somewhat.
   Those spring sleeve benders work okay if you don't already have the
flared end, but the pliers type are really the way to go.  And try not to
scrape off too much of the protective coating from the outside of the tube -
rust sets in quick.

Glenn, I have used SVF on several occasions. Their service is top notch and
they are freindly as well as professional. Plus they have a great book.
I'm not associated with them other than being a satisfied customer.

Gentlemen,
I have had a change of heart and have decided to throw in the towel.  I
have a '59 F-100 4x4 for sale.  The truck is in great shape and very solid.
292 with a bad holley 4brl. Asking $5000 (wife will string me up if I get
much less).  Wife wants house and baby, not happy with living in garage and
having a cat (want, want, want...)
