I've got a 79 400m engine still in the remains of the truck it was being used in. The truck is junk (salt and age) but the engine ran in August. It's located about an hour north of Minneapolis, and I'll gladly sell the engine for $100. The axles are gone, and the transmission only goes in reverse (that last part from the guy I bought the truck from) The carb needs definite attention. I couldn't get it to run because the gas tanks are both rusted through so I rigged up a gascan to gravity feed to the carb. When it started (within seconds of turning the key) I shut it off right away to check everythng under the hood (I'm an ex-firefighter and hate to burn things down unless I plan them) The throttle linkage was gone, so I knew I'd have to throttle it by hand, and when I restarted it, the carb was spraying gasoline all over the top of the engine. Geysering would be a good description. Anyway, if you'd be interested, let me know, and I'll see about getting it pulled.
Hand me that hammer, I think I can make it fit.
