I stumbled accross a 351w EFI from a 94' F-250... Owner says it ran when they pulled it and it had approximatley 194,000 miles so I'm sure it'll need a rebuild. Would this be a good donor for a swap?

I've read that the EFI sticks up pretty high and some had to put a 3" body lift and hood scoop on. Would that apply to this motor?

They are asking $850.... That seem high? It's a complete engine with all accessories...

That is the very tall EFI that they are telling you about.
Either the Ford Lightning or Mustang 351W Cobra or Mercury Marine EFI or aftermarket EFI will be needed if you want to clear the hood.

$850 is really high for a builder engine.
You can probably find one in a you-pull-it yard for less than half that.
I have seen one on CL with 35,000 miles for less than that.

my 351 came from a '96 model Bronco, and I pulled all the EFI stuff and went to carb. The truck intakes are tall and won't fit, I don't believe its the right computer either but someone else can verify the EFI requirements. 1994 was the changeover year to hyd-roller tappets, so you may want to check that out prior to ordering new parts (note: cam gear and dizzy gear material must match). Mine had roughly 200k miles on it so I bored it .030 over and ran with it, even thought I could have prob done .020 over. I went a little too far into the upgrades which wasn't necessary, but it pulls like a champ now.

Also, since some of that EFI stuff can't be used, I'd try to lower that. I believe mine was around $450, and I pulled it.

77, 351 full roller, GT40X heads, headers, NV3550 w/ Twin Sticks, WH 2.5" SL & 1" BL, 33" BFG KM2s, 4.56s, under construction..

As always, y’all are a wealth of knowledge.

There’s also an original 351w short block out of a 70’ pickup that I’m going to look at. I kind of like the idea of that as I can have it rebuilt and put the Edelbrock Preformance Package on it. I know that’s kind of a cookie cutter package although the reviews and specs are pretty impressive. Thoughts?

He’s asking $250. I’ll see if I could get it for $150 or so.

Not original to that pickup.
No telling where that came from or what it has been through either.

I typed without looking at it again... It's out of a 74'. It doesn't say what vehicle though... I've looked at so many they're all running together! haha

On the block next to the flat surface for the oil pan above where the starter would be there is a set of numbers and letters that are a code which will tell which engineering revision of the casting it is.

E is the code for 1980s
4 would be the year in the decade
So if E4 then 1984 (or later until the next engineering change)
Nothing special about a 1984 351W engine, so don't pay high for one.
