Question 400ci

Those 400ci engines that were in LTD's from 72-78 (i think), were they modified clevo's? i seem to recall hearing that they were. If so does anyone know much about them? or what can be done with them? they should fit into the bay of an XA without shaving a bit off the suspension towers right???

No Aussie built car came with a 400, only US built cars.

Yes they are clevelands but compared to a 351 they were a dog of a motor...

Yeah, in stock trim the 400ci was a tetuned, low compression truck motor. Give it a massage like any other clevo, and it would be a great performance motor as you would expect with extra cubes and the general clevo heads etc. Take a look at the dood Shazzam. He built a tidy tall deck clevo.

Re: 400ci

Dont call the 400 a "Cleveland", a "400C" or a "400M", unless you want to get Davis all excited.

The fact is that the 400 looks like Cleveland, but has a taller deck to allow for the 4 inch throw of the crank, just like the 351W has a taller deck when compared to the 302W, to allow for it's 3.5 inch throw.

Every part from a 351/302 Cleveland will go into a 400, except the intake and pushrods. Obviously they also have their own 4 inch crank (with big 351W sized mains) and their own piston/rod combo. Nearly all 400's were tooled to fit the C6.

Every part except the crank, rods, pistons, inlet, exhaust, etc etc LOL
In fact the only thing that will fit from a 351C to a 400C is the water pump and heads i think!
