My 68 F-100 originally came with a 240 I6. I transplanted a 302 in it's place. I used the same convertor when I did this and it seemed to work just fine. What is going to happen when I put in the 351? Will I need a different convertor? It has a c4.

The plan for the 351W is:

Comp 270 cam
bored .030 over
stock crank and rods
iron heads(stock)
It has a 4v intake now(iron,stock) might replace that with an aluminum intake

Don't know if any of these details are necessary for an answer, but thought I'd give the info just in case.

Thanks

If the motor makes more torque than the 302, it'll stall higher with the 351 which is good. Reliability-wise you're probably okay too.

Thanks Rustang. I'm completely in the dark when it comes to how automatics work.

Now I'm wondering...do I WANT higher stall? I mean for my combo. Remember it's in a (heavy) truck. Or does that matter?

I'd start out with the converter you have.
