351m short block

Short blocks consist of a block assembled with crank, rods, pistons, cam & timing components. I've never bought one because I rebuild my own but they should run in the $500-$750 range for a decent one. I understand that some remanufacturers don't do short blocks anymore. You might want to call around to the local chains to see what they can do for you.

If you do buy a short block it's a good time to consider a 400. Everything else is the same but the cubic inches.

Think about this one for a second. Everything is not the same if the cubic inches are different. The crank is all that is different wich makes the cubes different.

People who say it can't be done should not interrupt the person doing it.

Of course the crank and slugs are different but as far as the "rebuild" is concerned there is "no" difference. Every thing bolts up the same. Nothing extra to buy or screw around with.
