a guy not far from here is selling a big block bell to suit c4 case fill ? $450 maybe they made both case and pan fill ones ?

 

No the factory bells are only for Pan fill cases . If you were to go an aftermarket bell like a JW they fit up to the pump bolts so fit either case

well i cant belive it CRS does  a 400 engine mounts to suit xa to xg ,all that frigin around calling america and everybody except CRS,pphhhhhhhhhhh.

Thats nice, makes going 400M a lot easier,

Arrow Cleveland is cast iron, & are advertised as "semi finished" meaning needs full machining to final clearances,

also remember reading on ford forums that Arrow/Headtorque says bolts are only there to hold main caps during ruff machining & freight, & to replace them with ARP bolts or studs.

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.

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 .
