    Would anybody happen to know someone in the Houston area selling an inexpensive Ford V8 for my Ranchero? If it is a small block or FE I will also be looking for an automatic transmission. If you know somebody outside of Houston that is wiling to ship, that'll work too. I'm not trying to be picky but I would like to stay away from the 351M/400 engine. I currently have that engine in the truck now and have herd mostly bad things about them. Almost anything else would work.

    Thanks in advance

    What are you plans for this engine/truck? If it's going to be a daily driver and you're not planning to go all out on HP, there's nothing wrong with a 351m/400. They are basically a taller deck version of a 351c that has the big block bell housing pattern.

    I want to get the truck running right now and the engine in it sat up for ten years so I think it's just going to need to be replaced

    Can't help with an engine in the Houston area. There's a fresh built 400 here in Phoenix for $1500 right now and he has some performance goodies he's selling too.
