HEI conversion how to

Hey everybody,
Just got done swapping my 82 bronco, 351w to an HEI set up. I got it on ebay from skipwhite performance. It was one of the easiest upgrades ive ever done on a car or truck. It now runs MUCH smoother and quieter. I used to be able to feel a slight lope while the truck sat at a red light, now I have to look at the tach to make sure its still running! Acceleration is smooth through all 4 gears. If anyone is considering this mod, I reccomend going through skip white, they were very helpful and easy to deal with, plus I got the complete distributor with coil and cap for only $52 shipped! Any how to questions hit me up and Ill be glad to help.

Hey guy, looking for some help with this, I'm doing the same thing. I'm taking a 93 351w with 80k miles and putting it into my '81 F100 in place of its 300 I6 with 460k miles. How is it done?
