    Default Was this engine well maintained?

    The seller promised me that the 40,000 miles on the odometer were all the car ever saw. The valve train looks a bit rough to me????

    Current state YES. In a few months it will be mildly badass. You can have the heads . But I'm banished from Florida. I could tell you exactly where to go dig up a Chevy engine & Paragon transmission out of my 32' Chris Craft. I buried between Punta gorda & Arcadia. Heh...heh

    Early 400s had the same heads as the 351C-2V. Later ones got the 351M heads. The difference is that the 351M heads put big water jackets around the exhaust valve stems. That helped valve life, but the jackets are huge potbellies that hang down into the exhaust port, choking it off so much you can barely get a finger past them.
