The motor is in the truck now and is good running condition, the truck is pretty dilapidated, but I could put some tires on it and drive it for a while I guess, just another vehicle to insure.
On the roller 351 W , can you put cleveland 2v heads on it?? or just leave stock heads on it??

yes you can you have to drill a few water passages out in the heads and need an adapter intake manifold bush performance makes one iirc.

with liability i pay like 10$ a month to insure my 78 f150 with the 400 in it

Most all the aftermarket SBF heads will bolt to a 302 or 351 since most of them use 1/2" bolt holes.

NOT an easy swap..Different mounts and bellhousing bolt pattern..Also since its a different width and height your headers will not likely fit although they would technically bolt up to the engine...Alot of bother for an engine that is a dog..

yes, I was told I would need new headers to get around the larger bell. The engine has been rebuilt with performance parts, I know it has a big ole cam in it, it also feels like they did not big a big enough stall converter. But all in all the truck runs out pretty fast. I will post some pics when I get a chance.
