The other Joe:

I apologize for the offending post.
I didn't mean to imply that a misspelled word was the problem with your ad, rather that it was the lack of a price.
I removed the offending...

Broken bolt removal

There's no need to remove the crankshaft to remove the broken piece of bolt. If you are lucky, you can unscrew it using a small hammer and cold chisel, striking it at a shallow angle near the...

No fuel delivery

Remove the fuel pump and ground the coil wire so the engine can't start. Reach in with a Popsicle stick as if it were the fuel pump arm and press against the eccentric. Have someone crank the...

Casting number locations

"I'd like to know what bonehead at Ford decided that the proper place for it is where it can't be seen without removing the starter."

The same one that placed the casting number of the heads on...

Not so easy-out

I have removed them by very careful use of an oxy-acetylene torch. I even got a 1/4" bolt with broken tool inside removed. Since your situation will be 1/4 NPT, there will be lots of room for...

351W mileage

My 1969 351W has an estimated less than 200,000 miles, and is thoroughly worn out, burning and leaking rather a lot of oil.

I took it out of a beautiful Torino Hardtop many years ago. The Torino...

Oil leak

There's a pretty good chance that there will be no engine damage. Last summer my Escort started to lose oil pressure, as indicated by the warning light coming on. I drove it for a couple days until...

New Daily Driver Truck

For a new daily driver, perhaps consider a 94-97 with a 351 roller cam engine. You'll have a lot more commonality of parts then, especially that good engine.

4V heads

The 4V and 2V engines used the same heads. It's the 351C that used different ones between the 4V and 2V engines.

Used parts prices

You definitely have more reasonable junkyards.
The wife's vehicle is a 1999 which one would think is getting on the old side, and it was a base engine.

But that's why I rarely go to junkyards...

Wow those are good prices. I was searching around for a Honda head at the local junkyards a month ago when the wife's car dropped a valve and was quoted $495.
Needless to say I got the original...
