hey guys so the name is josh. New to the site for posting things however not new at looking things up whether here or somewhere else. So my question I have for you gentlemen is that I have a 1979 Bronco with a 351m. The gentleman I bought it from told me it was rebuilt and it was good to drive from Cali to AZ where I'm from long story short it wasn't good to go and overheated and blew a head gasket. I'm building a motor now basically 351m block 400m crank and rods just ordered tim meyers pistons as well as a gear drive timing set.....I love the noise they make. My question is I want a reliable engine with some power what cam should I use however I like a lope and I might tow some things once in a great while. Any suggestions?
