I'd be willing to bet that old 400 in my shop has more trq then that thing you call a motor in that Blazer. The 351M/400 was crap from ford but if built right can make good power. The first 400 that came out in 1971 were bad from factory. But then they went to make them nice on emissions and ruined them. But in case you have not pay attention, my yota has a 305 in it. An even weaker motor then a stock 351M.

my truck started with a blown up 400,  i put in a fresh 351/m400.  the two were like night and day but the 351m/400 was like a 79, which was about 7.5:1 cause of emissions crap.   as they were built the later ones had thicker deck height, killin comp.   both were tough motors, worked good but the 351m was a dawg.  It might have made a good boat anchor!

My 400 was a dawg when I first got it, but not as bad as the 351M I have seen. But I put flat top pistons in it and put a custom grind Comp Cam in it. Now its a whole different engine.

yup, the 400 can be a bad azz motor, even the 351m with some cheddar in it.  Mainly the compression on the m's ain't crap.  if i woulda had a good 400 i would prolly still have it

what a wrecked thread,  all the guy wanted was some help settin timin? LOL

if you crank it without a trans that sumb*tch 'el rev like a dragster-lol

if you start it on the floor be sure and use a flat stand of somesort, just crankin it up can flip it over.  I used the kind that sets the motor a couple inches off the floor.  i'll be in tracy city sat, if you want i'll bring it for you to borrow and pick it up next time-

Jdabbs thanks man but it will be a few weeks before it's ready I have to put new spider injectors in it and pay my dad back for all the monny I got to bye the dang engine so it will be a few weeks but I mite take you up on that when Im ready. What I was going to do is build a box that fits around the oil pan and get straps and strap the engine mounts down to a trailor.

Thanks for all the info Guys

When you get it done youll be pleased with it. The same engine you bought , I wouldve bought it had it not come up for sale the next day after I had already bought a badazz set of aluminum heads and dropped my block off for machine work.

You can ask Dabbs , I sit around for 2 weeks deciding what I wanted to do about an engine , pulled the trigger on building a 355 on Sunday. Bought a set of heads and dropped the block and heads off at the machine shop and that engine came up for sale on monday.........
