anyone tried a 351w into a scout 80

I'm wanting to swap in a v8 into my 65 scout 80. At first I considered a 350 chevy but was concerned about distributor clearance. I have an old ford with a 351w that is strong so I thought I would try that. Just wanted to know if anyone has any experience with this kind of swap. Any info. would be appreciated.

I have seen a 350 stuffed into one before, so I dont see why a ford SB wouldnt work also. My suggestion would be to spend a little time with a tape measure to see what will need to be modified to make it work.
