Im building farmall m tractor to do a little pulling and ive got a new reproduction farmall 450 lp head and manifold, farmall 400 motor, 400 crankshaft , stock 400 cam, 450 carb, 400 govenor,electronic ignition, and i plan on putting the 4 1/8 inch overbore that has the stepped head high compression piston from A&I Products in this block, and using stock stroke! does anyone have any idea on what kind of power im looking at here??and will i have to cut a little off of the top of the piston due to clearence issues ?

my M now has flat top pistons in it now with the 4 inch over bore and the 8060 head with the (lp manifold) and it made a solid 50 horse after new plugs a good carb cleaning and adjusting the timing .
any help with be helpful!

If I were you I would find a 450 cam. All I've read about that setup, you could get close to 70 hp. I have the same but with a 450 gas head and I got 63hp.

About any standard replacement cams for a M to a 450 made in the last 50 some years are supposed to be the same as what some call a 450 cam. If the 400 cam is in the same condition as whats called a 450 one there's no need to change.
About 1/3 of the 450 engines used the same cam as a 400. Then IH decided to put left hand threads on them for the cam nut.
Special cam grind could make more power if matched to your needs.
