Introducing the 77’!

Hey everyone! Wanted to introduce myself and the 77’ F100 I picked up today. Needs a transmission and rearend, but I snagged it for $600. If anyone in the Tulsa area knows of a c6 for sale that will bolt to the 351m let me know.

I’m still a little new to the scene here on dent side trucks, but I believe a 351m uses the smallblock bell housing meaning it will accept a c6 from a 300, 302, or 351 not sure about other things like flex plate fitment or etc.

Nope, 351m's use the same bell housing as the 400, 429, 460.

Welcome to FTE Quaranta, and correct a 351M will bolt to a BIG block auto trans pattern ONLY.

Did you match the paper title vi# with the dvrs door riveted on Warranty Plate #, and the B pillar Safety Certification white sticker #, AND the frame vi#? Because that front grill looks like a 73...

I havent, but thanks for the tip. The title says 77 but I have not checked the vins. I went the route of blindly throwing over $600 because it seemed like a steal lol

It is a steal, untill you find out you paid $600 for a title and a matching door, and the rest of the truck is stole....I am sure it will work out, just ck the #'s.

Darn it, tried to teach myself that engines that start with 3 are small block and engines that start with 4 are big block. Guess 351 is also big block. Should’ve remembered that 400 is stroked 351 therefore they are the same engine block

meangreen92 has a very good reputation on FTE.meangreen92 has a very good reputation on FTE.meangreen92 has a very good reputation on FTE.
351 Cleveland and Windsor have the smaller bell patterns. The 351M and 400 were never put in anything smaller than a Torino Elite, and have the big block bell pattern.

I see the '73-'75 grills, but I also see F100 CUSTOM nomenclature on the cowl, and that indicates '77-'79. Still a good idear to see if the frame agrees. Does the fuel filler have a vanity door, or exposed cap?

Small Block V8 (221, 260, 289, 5.0/302, 5.8/351W)

Big Block V8 - 385 Series (6.1/370, 7.0/429, 7.5/460)

Not to be confused with....

FE & FT Big Block V8 (332, 352, 360, 390, 406, 410, 427, 428)

But remember....335 Series- 5.8/351M, 6.6/400, 351 Cleveland

So I have located a c6 from an 83’ f-350 with a 460. Will that fit my 351m?
