i picked up a 351w for a truck project and like others went to the way side. what i know about it
stronger botom end compared to normal car engine
better cam then in a car/truck
heads were rebuilt after 1 season, then motor was pulled
as it sits it is unopened and ready to drop in to a boat. ie: includes manifold, heat exchangers, carb flywheel/drive flang, motor mounts, dist, etc. basically you can drop it is ready to be dropped in to a boat. i did a bunch of research and to be put in to a truck , after dropping all the marine stuff, you would need the water pump and dist off of the old motor.
like to get 300$ this thing is taking up a lot of room so its got to go!
i dont really want to pull things apart but if i get a serious offer come on over and ill pull the pan and valve covers with you.
302 heads off of a 96 mustang gt. 40,000 miles, they were pulled to be upgraded not because of bad gaskets, complete minus rockers and pushrods. they are very clean.
