I have a 78 ford bronco that i bought for a project truck. i have the body off and i just did a compression test and found out that a few cylinders are bad. i am going to but a rebuilt motor and i need to know how much trouble it would be to replace the 351M with a 400? i dont have the money to do a 460 swap just yet. the new motor does not come with valve covers or manifolds or timing cover and i know i will need to replace these with new parts specifically for the 400. so i am wondering if the 400 will bolt direct up to the tranny using all the same mounts as the 351M.

Yes. the 351m is the same motor as the 400 just different crank and pistons.Everything else is the same because its the same block.I just had my 351m rebuilt to a 400.

just to get some extra height. because i havent seen any body lifts taller than 3" for sale


Just following what everyone else says..

There is a reason why one is not created..

Not only would it look reCOCKulous, but it most likely doesnt function properly.
