confused A 351 Stroker????

Hey Guys,

I'm looking for a extremly high torque motor, to suit a 5 tonne truck. And I know that generly the longer stroke the better. but the clevo has a really short stroke so i was wondering if a 351 stroker would be good, and if so what dollars are we talking and how much power...

Thanks,

Stroke a 351 Clevo to 406ci. Although a 460 would do the same job.

Re: A 351 Stroker????

or maybe just get a rebuilt 400- they have 4" stroke, and are relatively cheap as they werent built as a 'hi performance' motor- the 4" stroke will build a ton of lowend torque even in stock form...as long as you dont intend on racing the truck : )

Re: A 351 Stroker????

a quick search found this link:
http://www.off-road.com/ford/flashback/400_power.html

should be interesting to you as it mentions using Aussy heads- you could probably order a short block and reuse your topend parts- give it a look

Re: A 351 Stroker????

I hope you own an oil well - there is a pretty good reason that most trucks these days are runnning Diesel engines - mountains of torque at low engine speeds and far better fuel economy. Ford do a few good motors - check out the latest F-Series for their Powerstroke Diesel's.

Diesels have become far cheaper in the last decade or so.

460 ford can be stroked to 557 but a 533 side loads pistons less dont try stroking 351c there a lot of hoops to jump through to make it last!
