I can buy one complete from crab to pan. It has never been into.I can buy it for 250.00.Does this sound like a good deal? The guy that has it says he checked it over before he got it and there is nothing wrong with it.I know about the cooling problems with these engines so what do I need to do to make this a good street engine if it is worth it? Thanks

$250 for a complete 400 is a screaming deal, they are getting hard to find.

I did a similar deal on my Nova. Located a '73 Monte with 400 small block and did a fairly stock rebuild (stock crank, rods, 041 heads) and added forged pistons, CC 280 Magnum cam, Victor Jr. intake, 3310 Holley carb and ended up with a fine street engine. I have more details on my 'home page' under Nova.

Anymore I would only end up using the block for a serious buildup, but on the other hand I would much rather buy a complete engine than one that is in pieces. $250 is a good deal.

Sounds like a good deal but doesn't the truck 400's have the tall heads on them?

I thought the tall decks were 400's. The second thing to go with old age is the memory. I can't remember what the first thing is.

Ya'll shouldn't pick on me about the crabs. I'm very unstable right now.
