SWAP, 351M FOR 351windsor
Good morning .
I would like to ask if any one knows of any links and or site pages that just simply explains what is involved in changing a 1977, 1978, 1979, 351 M frame / ford truck 4X4 with a C-6 transmission (351M bellhousing),.. over to........
.....an early 1980s to 1987, 351 Windsor motor.
I have been searching quite a bit for about a year now (when i have time) and have not come across a page, post, or article, that descisively and basically just explains with pictures how to do this swap. And I have searched far and wide.
I have come up with the fact that I need
the "351 Windsor" to C-6 bellhousing, it should bolt right to my 77,78,79,C-6 transmission body.
(I have three windsors but sold my other 351W C-6.)
I need to know what "stock" J-yard motor mounts I could use, or what company makes a set.
(Not an over priced pro-comp alloy milled set, mind you.)
Any legitimate, straight up info, hands on experience, links, etc, very much appreciated.
Why amI doing this, ?
Because 351Ws are a dime a dozen.
Why dont I just hang one of the windsors in and see whats up, ?
Cause its a pain in the arse to do mock ups, and on this one I just want to mount it up and worry about the little problems after the big fish is landed.
Thank you in advance for the help.
Keep on truckin.
