New motor sometime
First off, Yes I know its not a 385 series, but it is still Ford (No Cheby crap). I got a 351w for free after helping a neighbor and consdering my truck has the straight 6 (300 ci) with 264,000 miles, I figure it is time for a little freshening up. So after a rebuild of the 351 for now I'll have a little more power with a close to new motor. Is there anything i need to watch out for on these motors. It is out of an 84 Bronco with the factory HO 4 bbl option. I will try to have some pics tommorow. I'm planning on putting new gaskets top to bottom, new main and rod bearings and new piston rings. Is it possible to put the crosshatch back into the cylinder wall without having to bore over. The motor has 64,000 original miles.
