Where to buy cleveland exhaust manifolds

Guys my 14 yr old son is building his first dent. It has a 351 cleveland and we need a left exhaust manifold. Where would be the best place to buy one or any cleveland parts for that matter?
Also are the Cleveland's as good an engine as I keep hearing they are?

Fyi the pickup is a 76 f250 2wd 3/4 ton, 4 speed. Started life with a 300 6 cylinder previous owner (original owner also) switched the engine in. no rust but pretty dinged up. My son is sanding it and painting it himself. He is a dent lover same as I am.


Thanks for any help.

The 351 Cleveland was a car engine .351M 400 engines were modified Cleveland design many parts inner change 'I'm thinking you could use exhaust manifolds off a 351M or 400. I would check it out .I'd check out a junk yard see if you could find a used one.From LMC truck they want 130 bucks for a 351M 400 one

2v 351c's, 351M's and 400's used the same heads, which should translate to the same exh manifolds. So if this is a 2v 351C...just snag something from a 351m/400 truck in the Junk yard.

Yes, as long as it has 2v heads, the exhaust manifolds from a 351M/400 truck will fit. If it had 4v heads you would know because the exhaust manifolds are huge.

I'd make sure it's a 351C also, not just a 351M someone bs'd their way past.

^^^If they are the 4v heads...just pony up the cash for a set of Sanderson FC3 headers.

Thanks for all the info and help. Is there a stamp on the block or heads to tell me for sure what engine it is? The sticker on the valve cover is gone.

And the sticker on the air cleaner says 2v. So I'm guessing it's 2 v heads.

if it has the stock intake on it, and it's a 2bbl carb it has 2v heads.

Also typically on the intake side of the head, on the corner you should see either a 2, 4 or m cast into it. pretty self explanatory as to what each one means. it's not 100% as not all had that casting but if it's there it will positively ID which type of head it is (you will never see a 2v head cast with a 4 there for example)

Look at the middle of the page here :

TMeyer, Inc. Precision Automotive Machining

351m/400 on top, 351 cleveland on bottom.

Notice the 351m and 400 have a raised portion around the distributor and thermostat.
