Went to JY over by my house looking for a trasmission for my daughters Bronco and I stumbled upon a 351C CJ block it was not a 4 bolt block hole wise buy on the web for the mains there is a bump where it could be macined out to 4 bolt mains. The yard wants $120 for it it had been through a machine shop and is minus main caps. I wonder if i should snag it anyway.


Could I fuel inject a 351c?

Of course you want it...set it up with replacement 4-bolt mains and a stroker crank and you'll have a powerful mud bog screamer. Or resell it to a restorer so they can use it for a 351CJ Mustang resto.

I was looking for a flange for the output of a BW1356 and found this on the ground beside a 94. When I carried it up the guy in the office was pissed that his help didn't catch it being took apart. Lucky for me there was rust on the shaft and I got it for $20.

nice find (and good price)

Someone removed the back half of the 1356 in the F150 I snagged the manual linkage from. They left a really good looking chain dangling there..I'm going back to get it as a spare. Should be able to get it for $10. I'd take the rest for parts. but depending on whose working the counter I may get charged full price for a T-case ($75 if you pull it).

You never know what you will find. I clear my schedule & carry in 50lbs of hand tools just in case I will be staying for a while.

Hey man, are those Marchal fog lights? If so, they will bring good $$$, might wanna snag those!! Did you check out the black & silver truck behind the bronco? I am looking for a set of black XLT door panels with the fake wood grain.

I found this today while scavaging.

All was there in good condition but minus the steering wheel & radiator. Looks like it has a 400m in it.

I had a set of Marchal headlights in my 77' Chevy truck they were the brightest thing around at the time they were bought. My Uncle purchased them for Grandpa in 78' because Grandpa only had 1 eye and needed the extra light for night time driving. I just looked on ebay and a set of nos go for $1000 wow I couldn't believe it.

I stumbled upon a 2wd NP435 tranny just sitting on the ground beside a '71 Ford F100. Someone removed it just to rob it of the input shaft & bearing assembly. The gears look good. Fortunately it was pulled recently and there dont appear to be any contaminents inside. I got a good deal on it and brought it home. At the very least I can use it for parts but I will probably rebuild it and use it in either a '78-79 Bronco build or a '73-79 460/435 2wd F150/250 parts hauler truck build I have in mind.

I went back & snagged the 1356 chain as a spare.

Also found (2) 3G alternators and brought them home. Both tested good.

Picked up an auxiliary battery tray out of an old F350 diesel for when I add my second battery. Seemed like a good idea, since I'm planning on adding a winch sometime later this year. I grabbed the coolant and washer fluid resevoirs as well, since I don't think I'll be able to just move mine. Just need to clean them up and paint the tray and brackets.

Stumbled upon a '92 Bronco at the yard with a manusl shift 1356 still attached to the E4OD and the rear driveshaft was still there.

Also grabbed a pair of F250 shock towers

Do you remember what year the donor was? Be sure to post pics when it's installed. I'm not sure it'll work with the '87-96 gas-engine air filter, but it would be good if it does.
It was an 88. And I plan on replacing the stock filter with a cold air intake. Probably the K&N version. It will take some work, but I'm confident I can pull it off. It will just be easier since I won't have to move the original stock reservoirs.

Looking for Yards in Pa, any ideas, I know a couple off of the Pa turnpike.
I haven't been there in 8 years or so now, but I used to live part time at the Ford Truck Storage Farm in Dover PA. Anything and everything you want.

















One thing I always wanted from there was one of the last ever Ford made OEM grills. Never had enough cash on hand for that unit though.



Also was the farthest I've ever driven the Lariat away from home back in 2006.
