Does this mean you were not able to try the NAPA ?

Correct. None in stock. It appears to be the correct configuration. It lists the thermostat(TH297) as a bottom-bypass style.

That's strange that you guys have trouble finding thermostats for the M Series engines 351M / 400. Try the local Ford dealer, they could get you one, for last year while my78 F-150 Ranger Lariat was at the Ford Dealer for distributor issues, while it was there I had them put a new thermostat in for me, and they didn't have a problem getting one. So Doug try your local Ford dealer and see if they can get you one, for you have the same engine in your truck, that I have in my truck, the M Series 351M / 400. hopefully you find this helpful.

They don't have one and can't get one.

That one disappeared. Somebody must have bought it. Thank you, Mark.

I might be missing something, but it says there's 9 left.

FYI...351C and 351M/400 do not use the same thermostat.
351M/400 do not require the "top hat" on the thermostat.


351C block




351M/400 block

Thank you, Tim. Now I'm confused, if I remember right, the thermostat well on my 400 looks like the top picture?
