Bronco Custom 1979 400 rebuild

Hi Guys, Im from Argentina and this was my engine rebuild project

Bronco 400 with TMI pistons, the first one here.


this is my 79 bronco custom, it has a 351M engine with C6 auto trans.



I got 400 crank and pistons, and I´ll swap the C6 for a ZF5 manual trans.

I turned off the engine in may 2010...
