im looking for an old 400 to rebuild in lower mich. My 77 has a 351 now, i want to swap to a 400,i know i can build my 351 into a 400 but i want to be able to drive it while im building a 400 this winter. THANKS
Your sig says 351M, correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the M shared bell housing pattern with the 429/460 as well? Any reason your not considering that engine?
my truck has a 351m, i want to start building a 400 while im driving it. I may go with a 460 but i dont want to revamp my exhaust and anything else comes along. The 351m is not enough,the 400 will do all i want plus not add nose weight.
I can't imagine the weight being that big a factor, there is only about 150# difference between the 460 and the 400m.
As they say, there is no replacement for displacement........
i drag raced for 28yrs,the last 7 in a pro class,weight is everything to me,150lbs is a lot. A mild built 400 can produce as much tqr as a stock 460, built with the right parts a bit more. Ive had smaller NOS engines putting out more HP than some of my lager C.I. (706ci) NOS engines. Displacement is not always the deciding factor.
Got a line on a good running 400, cammed, and new Pistons a few years ago. Edelbrock carb.
What's it worth to you? I might be buying the whole bronco
what is it worth IYO? If you want me to put a price on it,then hows $100.? Long story short but im suppose to have one coming from ohio, but its been a month so i have no idea. If you are into 460's i may have some stuff that interest you, new moroso rear sump oil pan with pick up thats new,the 2 cost me almost $500.,i have 2 bare blocks one is a cj/scj,the other standard block. Brand new timing chain cast cover that was $100.,and 1 set of heads. I have all part#'s if needed, just want that stuff out of my way.. THANKS Bud
