Default high volume oil pump

I have the 400 6.6 eninge in a 79 F 250. and I've started to do minor rebuild. Currently chaning out the timing gears and chain for a double roller. A new carburetor and intake have already been changed out. I'm new to the rebuild, replace and in the middle of replacing the timing chain I went ahead and dropped the oil pan and I ordered a hugh volume meiling M84AHV oil pump and wanted to know if I made a mistake. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You did good its the only oil pump I use; Melling high-volume oil pumps give you additional much-needed oil volume for your performance engine. For those who need added pressure, the Mellling oil pumps has a larger inlet hole and hardened steel gears, supplying additional oil flow for wider bearing clearances. what I really like is that the pressure relief spring plug is threaded for easy replacement
NOTE: make sure all your oil galleries are clean & open, when useing this pump
and NEVER NEVER run low on oil [like not even 1/2 qt low] use a quality oil filter MotorCraft FL-1A

I have one in my 331



what kinda chain & gears did you get ?
and have you done any head work, cause a little can make a BIG differance, as them springs & valve get tired and rob you of performance
I could go on & on but you get my drift
any ? just ask

I got a edelbrock 1405 carb with the performer intake from my brother that he had extra from a bronco. A 5 inch K&n filter with a substack. A edelbrock chain and gears. Just really got started in this project when I realized I would have to drop the pan to reinstall the timing chain cover and while i was there why not get a new oil pump too. He warned me its a slippery slope when it comes to fixing up these old trucks. I know now this to be true, because we went from just trying to replace the carb to now a new hei distributor, intake, fuel pump, oil pump, timing chain, and whatever else I can get my hands on. I'd like to look at the leaf springs and upgrading them to something alittle higher and heavier duty but eay on the pocket. If you have any helpful advise or warnings I would appreciate it.

The one thing that I have found is that its hard to find or buy AMERICAN MADE parts. I try but alot of times I find that there is no other choice but to buy foreign parts.

You can get rid of the smog timing on the M-blocks by using a 351c timing set either ran straight up or 2* degrees advanced and Rockauto sells a Cloyes LLT warranty set for less than $20 made in the good ol US of A.

It'll have a lot more umphh than it did before!

I thought about going with an oil pan with a larger capacity to suit the oil pump. Any thoughts on this. I plan on doing some 4x4ing, but don't know what this might impact. I had planned on zero degrees on the timing chain. Should I advance the timing gears? I don't have any work done yet as far as a cam or heads.

The 351 Cleveland timing set advancement on the 351m/400 can be done on stock engines IDK about the Edelbrock, you'll notice a difference in power.
