YEAH!!!!!!!!!!

I had one of those behind a 300 I6 in a 65 F100 camper
special. One of the best trucks I've ever owned.
Lot's of stories about that truck....

You won't find any hypereuts for the 351M/400 at least not that I've ever
found. I'm in the middle of doing the same buildup myself so I'm familiar
with the scarcity of parts. PAW does offer some flat top forged for the 351M
but if you put in a 400 crank they won't work. There's no problem putting in
a 400 crank just make sure you have the right pistons. The rods are the
same. As far as bumping the c.r. you have a few choices. Custom forged
pistons will run you $600-$800 with pins & rings, put in flat top 351C
pistons and have the rods bushed for the smaller wrist pins, put in stock
hypereuts for the 400 and mill the block & heads to get to the c.r. you
need.

Subject: FTE Perf - New Book

I picked up a new reference book titled "High Performance Ford Engine Parts
Interchange" by George Reid it covers 221 to 460 CID. So far it seems to
have a lot of good information and sources for parts. It also was just
published this year so it should be fairly current.

Anyway I'll be reading all the small block chapters over the next few days.

Does anyone know a good reference for nine inch rear-ends? I want to
replace what I have with a limited slip or posi and am hoping if armed with
more documentation I can find one in a yard for my late model nine inch.

Subject: FTE Perf - Identifying a 351 Cleveland

I need some help identifying an engine. I have stubled across a sweetheart
of a deal if the seller is tellin the truth! The seller claims that the
engine in question is a 351 Cleveland. He bought the engine with a C6 auto
from a speed shop that went out of business for a 68 mustang. The engine
was rebuilt for a customer that never picked it up, it never went into the
mustang b/c it didn't fit properly and the seller did not want to fuss with
it. Therefore, it has no miles on the pair.

The seller wants $300cdn bucks for both, but I don't want it unless it is a
Cleveland. I don't care what is inside of it, I'd probably open it up
anyway.

Does anybody know what casting numbers I should be looking for, and where
they are. Or does anybody have a suggestion that will confirm it is what it
is supposed to be.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Casting #s for the Cleveland blocks are:

D0AZ-D
D0AE-J,G
D2AE-CA


Casting #s should be under the rear of the right bank of cylinders.

hahahaha .. yeah you're not jokin there, I was pushin a 69 cougar by myself
for nearly a block, the stupid football players in the Festiva didn't even
bother to try and help, just yell at me... I was not very pleased ... but
once it started there was no way they could get me :)

trust me though I've pushed both and a truck is much heavier.

Subject: FTE Perf - re: cam

Shane,
I had the C-4 with a 2.79 gear, it would turn about 1900 60 mph, I don't
know how much the Maverick weighed but I think they are around 3200-3400
lbs. I now have that same cam in a 351W w/ AOD in my 52 F1. It has a little
lope at idle and can smoke the tires if I gas it going about 25 mph. I found
that out only by accident, I would never do that on purpose (heh,heh).
Remember, what works for a 351 may be too big for a 302, it is always better
to be too small on a cam than be too big. The harsh lope may impress some
people at the drive-in but you will have to live with poor mileage and
performance if it is too radical. You should not get anything less than 110
degree lobe centers and not over 220 degrees duration at .050. Wide lobe
centers cause rough idle but also kill mileage because of overlap (both....
