safe to say it'll make a lot more than plenty of other cars on the road.

Judging from the property that guy is a redneck. lol (I am too kinda haha) So I was questioning the numbers too but we will find out what he gets the motor in and takes it for a spin. So once its done prove us wrong about the numbers!

That motor will definitely move that truck pretty good, since your truck weighs so much less than the trucks the engine came from.

Even at the crank it won't be close to those numbers, but you will have fun with it.

Hopefully this guy gives you more details on the engine build and what not, I'm really curious since I have one these engines. FWIW, the 400M is basically the same engine, but just has more torque (different internals like the crank)

Yeah. In all honesty though im going off what i have been told. the guy got it from his best friends f150 that was built for nothing but torque and power, so untill i can really get it fired up/dynod for myself i really have to go off what i was told. he said its about 520hp. But see in my eyes if it has that much hp wouldnt it be more of a 400m? I really dont know im not super knowledgeable about big blocks. i know what i need to get them built/running, and to make them go fast lol, but thats about it

Technically yes, I have already paid him for everything, I just have to drive up to pick it up in two weeks.
You can't bore a 351m anything more than .30 over. The 351m is the same block as a 400. My dad is building one for his bronco. Just different crank, pistons and harmonic balancer.

In your pic it had the stock heavy *** intake with 2 barrel carburetor.

If you look on line they can get some decent HP from the 351-400. But yours looks stock.

Nice find, man. I'm looking for a first gen Ranger too, but deals around here suck. Good luck with the project.

A a big block putting out over 500HP would more likely be a 429 or 460. The 351/400M built would see around 400HP at best.

It's hard to categorize Ford motors under big block and small block, those terms usually apply to Chevy motors. Most people call the 351/400M as a big block since it shares the same bellhousing bolt pattern as the 429/460

Now that you have an engine from the 73-79 era, there is plenty of information to be found on 73-79 Fords, I've been on there for years. But there is also 335 Series motors, which applies directly to your motor

Well I got a little busy today with what time I had left. On wednesday I went and found a waggy 44, and found some new but used knuckles, rotors with warn locking hubs, shafts, and other misc berings and stuff. Only thing I need now or some spindle bearings. When I got the 44 it was in rough shap, but The internals were clean, and for 100 buck I couldnt pass it up. And as of today this is how it sits. I forgot to take pictures of it before the clean up, but I did take afters. I even made a nice little stand for it so I don't use up my jack stands. I ended up painting it with a few coats of dsg. Think it turned out pretty good.

Cool! DSG axle FTW!

What are you looking into for the rear end? Expo 8.8 or a 9 inch?

Maybe you will get some much stuff piled up in your garage for the build you will have to call off a day just to send me the 8.8 stuff cause you need more room HAHA

With superiors axle kit an 8.8 might be able to run it. But I guess a 9inch would be easier.
