Welcome. Don't build a 335 Series engine with a stock oiling system. Both Dad's, when it was running, and Rusty idled at ~10 psi hot. While that is enough, the pressure sender is not at the end of...

You are aware that the Windsors have a different bell housing than the 335 Series I assume. And that the perches in your truck are specific to the M/400? Windsors are good motors, but changing from...

You aren't gonna get very far w/an M. There aren't many pistons available and what you can find won't get reasonable compression - about 8.0:1. But, if you put a 400 crank in it you can run Tim's...

Doubt you'll find a crate motor, per se. But, contact Tim Meyer (http://www.tmeyerinc.com/) and he can build you a 400 from mild to WILD. But, you should call Tim rather than emailing as he gets...

Old??? I'm 67 and picked up an M/400 block by myself the other day. (Wasn't going to let that girl at the machine shop help me.)

Welcome to FTE! The Panhandle, huh? Where, exactly?

Your engine sounds like it is lean. Put a vacuum gauge on it and see if it stumbles until it reaches a specific vacuum, like 6". If so that...

Welcome to FTE, Farm Boy! But, are you calling me an antique? Wikipedia says "It is common practice to define "antique" as applying to objects at least 100 years old." So, I'm not quite there.

Glad it is working for you. FYI, the fork is really hard metal, so there must be a large force on it. Make sure you reinforce it.

I'm thinking your clutch may have done what mine did and took...

Actually, the front main has way too much oil going to it. Tim says he's seen oil squirting out of it and back into the pan. Here's my drawing, pieced together from other drawings, of the 335...
