There should be some 400's left in the junk yard. Try some of the smaller out of the way yards that deal in older stuff.Llook at the front balance wheel and if it has a noch out of it about half way around it should be a 400. If you get a choise go with the 2 bolt main over 4 bolt. It's the stronger in the 400. They only made a 4bolt main for a couple yrs. If you cant find a 400 go with a 4 bolt main 350 block you can always build a 383 out of it and be as good as a 400.
