I finally started the swap in my 70 ford f-100 from 302 to 351. Josh came out and helped me but got distracted putting on 36's on his truck. Got most of the stuff unhooked. Just got 2 pics but will get more as I progress. I want to keep the 351 stock till I save up money to build it sweet. Then I want it bored out .40 over bigger cam and some head work will ddo the trick for me.

Why does it seem that everyone waits until right when the mudding season begins to start tearing their trucks apart?:arf:

I took the heads off and lo and behold on top of the piston sits .040 haha so its been bored out already. Recently too as there isn't a ridge built up yet in the top of the cylinders so hasn't been run yet. I need to find earlier heads though as I have the 78 and up with all the emission crap with smaller ports and valves. So now all I need is heads new cam and intake haha. But I did save money by not having to bore out the block and buy new pistons so thats sweet. Will be roastin tires sooner now.

Nice! It's always a treat when you find out something is going to be cheaper than you thought (although it doesn't happen very often!)

change of plans. Block is getting bored to .60 over for 14 bucks a hole. Getting hot tanked here soon as its at the shop now. Found heads that will be better performance wise now. SO now that I have to buy new pistons I figured I should buy a more high performance set of them too.
