On the 351M/400 there is a dedicated bolt hole for grounding the negative post of the battery to the block. I looked to see if the engine diagram indicated what size bolt was used, but the diagram doesn't show that bolt.

The hole is directly below the alternator at the bottom of the block.

Does the hole kind of look like a bracket and sticks off the block a little bit? if so lucky me that part of the blocks broke..

The engine start circuit runs through the Neutral start switch which is located in different spots depending on year and type of Trans

The 'Engine keeps cranking' situation is because of power continuing to the S terminal of the relay
This can happen after trying to start an engine with a dead battery. The small amount of power from a low battery can actually WELD the contacts related to the S terminal of the relay.Always use a freshly charged battery when trying to start an engine.Once this has happened, any attempt to start the engine will be met with a NON-stop cranking of the starter

There are other reasons but your issue doesn't qualify
