I am replacing a 351w for a 400 in a 1983 shortbed 150. Where can I find the right motor mounts or will I have to build them.

That body style truck came with 351m engine, which is essentially the same ad a 400m. You can buy the mounts at any parts store, but you'll have to hunt down the towers from a wrecker, or find someone who's parting out an old truck. Should bolt in fairly easy. You may also need a trans crossmember, but you may luck out with the one you have.

beware the 351w and 400 have different bell housing patterns, unless you are lucky enough to find an fmx block...and good luck with that!
