Yup, I think I'm gonna do that - clean it up, spray paint it a chrome paint, get a glasstop from a cheap dinette set, and call it good. No room here for something like that, so I'll be selling it :D

if its an empty block, it wont be too bad, heavy still, im thinking of making a base for it, some nice hard wood, so it doest dent the floor. it sure woood take a few guys to move it though

but i dont think it should weigh a whole lot
My wife and I carried my bare 429 block into the garage, so the 400 block will weigh about 30-50lbs lighter (I'm just guessing). You could also make the block lighter, by cutting out the inside of the block

I'm thinking about adding recessed casters to the underside ofthe block, so it'll roll around a bit easier. I might be using different pistons tho, since the crank and pistons could be sold to someone else, to build their 351 to a 400

We'll see, I still have to figure out how the F to get mine into the Bronco w/o a cherry picker, or A-frame :shrug

Me? It's not running, and it's now missing the distributor, carb, and oil pan/pump/dipstick. Besides, it's been sitting in the dirt, out in the open since I, literally, yanked the engine from the frame (really, I used the blazer to yank out the engine/tranny/tcase, when it was sitting on the ground)


I would rent a picker, but I only need the picker for 10 minutes, and it's not worth the minimum rate for just that. So, I might be field stripping the engine, and doing it that way
