Default 83 f150 explorer

I got an 83 explorer f150 that I want to do a swap from a 300 to 351w only because 300 is blown up. Read all I need is engine towers and mounts and radiator plus odds and ends.. Is this all I need to get started?

You'll need flexplate or flywheel from 351w for whatever transmission is in the truck, the two engine's are balanced different ounce of weights. You'll need bracketry for the 351w for a 1980-1986 Truck. The ignition box(the silver box on the driver's fender) should work despite being a 6 cylinder with the 351w.
