another rod option for the future on a standard 351w crank is to use the 400M length rod and the 302 piston. many locals running roundy rounds are doing this. seems to be the new ticket in the NW.  not sure why but a builder in my area has a few setup like this.


You might want to check your information.

The 351M/400 rods are much longer than that and also use a much larger pin. If you bushed the rods, you could likely mill a ots 331 piston enough to be usable.

Scat does make a 6.125 H beam rod with standard Windsor sizing that allows you to substitute regular 302 pistons. Ford Racing used to offer a similar I beam rod.

The 400m Rod is the "long rod" of the 351w long rod engines that Hot Rod built 100 years ago.  I built one on the late 90s.  I still have it.  It used a Keith Black piston that was close to a 331 piston. I bushed the rods for a floating pin and added arp bolts.  It worked pretty good.  This was before 408 kits became common place.  Unless you have all the junk sitting there, there is no real point in building one these days.

I'd rather be a fool who is loyal to his friends than a POS that jumps ship to save face. We were wrong in the end, but nobody can ever call us disloyal. I can live with that.
