Hey guys I have decided to bite the bullet and get a reman long block.

351 W HO for the 85 Bronco. I have had good luck with Jasper back in the day
but have no idea where to get one in the Seattle area anymore.
So that is the question for now. What does Napa use now?

What outlet in the Seattle area has a reman long block, preferably a Jasper?
Does Jasper have a site? Guess I can Google that myself when I have a
bit more time.

The sites I have checked so for want around $1500.00 for the HO. I can live with that. Shipping up to me on the barge will prolly be $200.00 or so.

Any help at all is appreciated.

On that site I think the price was with sending them my LB. That's not a problem.
I wonder if I am to pay return shipping? I can't spend much if any over 2K getting
it here.
My helper and I can do the swap and save the labor cost. He want's my 22 foot boat
and trailer. Has been helping for a while on other stuff so this would close that deal out.

I have got to take my boy hunting. I will check back in this evening.

Thanks
Rich

Thanks Allen that is great. I have some help in a tread I started in the 351W
forum also. When we figure out just what it is I need and want I will give them a call.
I used many Jaspers back in the day. Only had trouble with one 300 I6 that had to thick a casting in the #1 cylinder. The water pump impeller ground on it. Was a hell
of a noise and caused it to eat the pump and over heat. Jasper sent me another
no questions asked and asked me to keep the bad one as they didn't want to
pay shipping. I found that Ford had a shim for the pump as this was a problem
on some early blocks. That free I6 may still be running today.

fordtrck302 is starting off with a positive reputation.
I just spent the past hour or so reading through this very extensive thread and many posts will help with some problems on my 84 Bronco. How are things going with your starter problems? Hows the the 351w coming along? I only read one time about your fuel mileage increase after putting on the manual locking hubs, are you still seeing the increased MPG's and would you contribute your increase directly to the manual hubs? Again it's been a great read.

Yes the manual Warren Premium Hubs gave me about 1.5 MPG increase for sure.
As for the starter I simply put a pry bar (long screwdriver) on the back end frame
and twisted the starter out on the bottom and in on top, than tighten it down. It
has worked as it should with no problems now for a couple of months.
Apparently the indexing plate or spacer between the block and tranny was worn
enough to let the starter lay to far out on the ring gear. When I change to a
manual trans I will replace the plate. But for now it's been working just great. Before if I had to crank on it because I had ran out of fuel or tried to start it hot
and had it kick back it would instantly eat the starter drive. Now it works like factory.
