I HAVE AN 86 FULLSIZE BRONCO WITH A EFI 302 AND I BOUGHT A WRECKED 81 WITH A CARB 351M. WHAT PROBLEMS AM I GOING TO RUN INTO AND WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO MAKE THIS EFI 302 TO CARB 351M SWAP AS SMOOTH AS POSSIBLE?
Are you sure the motor you have is a 351m and not a 351w If so, the bolt pattern (transmission) is different. 351m, 400, 429, and 460 share the same bolt pattern. 302 and 351w are the same. On another note, the 351m is considered by most to be a turd of an engine. Ive had 3 of them, and trust me, they all sucked. They can be built strong, but you would be much better off spending the money on a Windsor.
