    Also ford was clever in marketing the new 351m in 1975 still calling it a cleveland 351,but by 1976 the cat was out of the bag and many who bought a new car thought it was a 351c,which had been canned since 1974,it amazes me even today yanks on you tube so many people have no idea if there engine is a 351m or 351c ,to them its just a 351 .

    i want another 400 or 351m just for the hell of it,the 351m deck is not as much down the hole as a 400 at 65 thou odd,very hard to find a 351m here in aus but i have seen a few over the years for sale,they use the same rods as a 400 but a taller piston and 3.5 inch stroke ,the 351m was made from 1975 to 1979 ,and the 400 from 1971 to 1982,that last 400 i rebuilt was very rare being a 1971,i have been looking for the ultra rare 1973 small block bellhousing one,sought of like finding a nazcar pillow block at a garage sale for $100 lol.

    Speedo Sender Drive Gear INFO

    i played the game with fmx /c6 speedo drives with my 400/c6 combo and it drives ya mad at $50 a pop thinking you got it right ,i still have a few in the garage i ended up getting the lowest tooth count 15 i think and it got me within 6km of correct with 15'' wheels and 225/60/15 ,if i went a 70 or 75 series tyre like the big yank tanks had it would have been near perfect.

    Changing diff ratio?

    yup i played swap de swap on gears for years (hey good poetry there)go the 2.92 and just leave it,some older diffs like valiant had some variations in 2.92 ,falcons too.

    FMX dipstick?

    I have put quite a few fmx in cars and i have run into the same thing no dipstick or tube,and a lokar one is $200 plus ,stupid thing is you can buy a complete fmx box for the same money.

    what about the 460 mounts are they the same as 400 ?
  11. CHESTNUTXE

    CLEVELAND ENGINE TALK

    yeah i cant seem to find the info if 460 mounting bosses are the same as 400 ? the 3 bolt ones ? i always thought 400 had its own pattern ,i asked the guy at CRS and he said yeah m8 400m mounts into xa to xg $250 and they have em on the shelf ? maybe gregaus can chime on in if they are the same ,if i do another 400 i want to build it different this time ,no power steer,the usa flat tops ,hyd roller cam,alloy heads,and might try the edelbrock intake instead of the weiand one,or use the spacer kit on a 351c air gap manifold.

    the 400 3 bolt mount is a little different to the 460 but in saying that yesterdays research did uncover someone posting contact CRS for 400 mounts ,could be they just make the top plate to suit a 400 bolt pattern ,just for the hell of it i might call them tomorrow to find this out as it could be a make it as you need it part ?
