DISCLAIMER:
I don't know anything about FORDS except the distributor is in the wrong spot.




A friend of mine in High School had a Ford 4X4 and he always said it had a "351 MODIFIED 400"

I always figured he was full of crap making stuff up.....So there really was such a turd? Next question HOW the hell can it be a 351 and a 400? :?


I guess I can start saying I have a 454 modified 540.

It's a 351 M. "M", NOT MODIFIED like many peopele call it. The M means the motor was made in Michigan. The 400 is just that a 400. BOTH ARE TURDS!! I had a good sounding 400 but the ports and intake runners are just too small to get good power out of 'em.
The best thing about a 351M or 400 is you can throw them in the river and put a 429 or 460 in it's place. :wink:

A long time ago I was a Frrrrrd guy. I do still like the late 70's 4 wheel drives.

Yeah cuz they had 2 351's. One was a 351Windsor and the other was a 351 Cleveland. To my knowledge the Windsor was a small block and the Cleveland was a big block.

Ok first of all I said that was my knowledge Not fact. So before you go and open your mouth to try to degrade someone get your facts straight. It seems to me that the more you open your mouth the more stupid you look. IMO

I would not ever be ashamed to have a 351 "C"... a buddy had one in a Mustang that ran very hard... bone stock. You would have had to put money in anything else to make it run like that. I will say that I have had a few 360's in old 4wd Fords that were complete turds though... I do agree that the 400M is the stinkiest TURD ford put out like the 305 is Chevy's worst V8 I can think of.

Ever been shocked by a distributor while the car is running??? I have. One thing I like about Fords: I would rather get shocked in the front of the motor than get it in the back while the fan blade cuts into my guts & I am flailing around trying to get away....

Man, did I just have a major REDNECK moment back there or what????

I am goin to git bak to mi TV dinnir at mi singlewide... I can hear mama hallarin at me... gotta go

Oh and if this is true then why is it that you can put the Windsor heads on a 302 but you cant put the Cleveland heads on a 302??

Yeah you might want to get your facts straight before trying ot call someone out. Here is a post from another forum about the diff of the windsor and cleveland........

Cleveland is a good bit wider. Made as a 351 not an oversized 302. Lots of variants of the cleveland heads, not all manifolds are interchangeable
