Default Basic 351w Clean and Paint

So I thought I'd create this thread so I have a place to post pics and show what I did to the 351w in my Bronco when I go to "Clean" it. I'll list P/N's and price's for the parts I plan on buying

The plans are so far, to replace the Oil Pan Gasket(what it's being pulled for), Timing Chain and Gears, Temp Sender, Oil Pressure Sender, Paint(Ford Blue), Probably replace the Valve Cover Gaskets, new Intake Water Neck, maybe a new Water Pump. I'll kick around ideas here in this thread, but I WILL NOT be rebuilding it, just "Cleaning" it and Replacing a few parts.

I'll post the P/N's when I compile my list of what I need.

add a new cam & lifter kit

Summit Racing SUM-K4400 - $109.00

if I had it down enough to replace the chain the above would be a no brainer

but there again where do you stop the list could go on & on as is what happens to me

I figure I'd replace the chain and gears because of how many miles are on the engine, as far as the cam and such, that can wait til I decide to really rebuild it.

I always had good luck with a Cloyes timing gear set. Get one made before 1971. They will try to sell you one for a later engine. So you can say 1970 Mustang or something like that.

First thing I'm going to buy is a new bolt kit for the oil pan, the old bolts will be coming out in favor of these:

JBG wants $10+$9.59 to ship they're bolt kit to my house. These are $13.99 with free shipping .

Blue sounds like you are just fixing the stuff that is wrong which is ok. There is a bit more to do if you are refreshing a engine and a lot more work. For example checking the bearings for the crankshaft and con rods, pulling the heads off and checking piston bore to see if you can put fresh rings on the piston, Like J also suggested a new cam and lifter set, along with all new gaskets to put it back together with.

I would only do that to a engine with 50,000 miles or better. At 100,000 I would rebuild it and take no chances. You are on the right track with pulling the engine and doing repair work and prevented maintenance.

Also while you have your engine out it would be a good idea to replace the front transmission pump seal,so you won't have to go back and pull the trans to replace it.

Like I said, no sense throwing a buttload of money I don't have at it right now, once it goes out, I'll pull it back out and either rebuild it then, or pull all the new parts off, buy a 300 and put it in. This is just to fix the oil pan and maybe give it a few more thousand miles.

Just remember the seal for the front pump on the trans. So you won't have any surprise leaks.
