Don't know about a 351, John...the one in my 86 is still going after 216,000 miles....with a 4.10 rear, so it's turned a bit.
Am having problems with the 460 in my 87 with 92,000 miles on it. Thinking about rebuilding a 351 and C-6, and putting it in the 87.

I don't have enough mechanical knowledge to know what parts I'd need and what would have to be done with the motor I have in regards of making more power..

That's the easy part my friend, I can help some as I'm sure other members here can as well. If there's one thing I've learned from FTE is that the members here are FANTASTIC and always willing to help a fellow member out.


I don't claim to know everything there is to know about the 351, but I know enough to be dangerous It sure doesn't take much to have a 400hp daily with the Windsor... and when you start going up in displacement, look out world, the ground is shaking Cast crank stroker kits from reputable companies are very common and quite reasonable cost wise.


I highly recommend checking out: Fordstrokers
Woody is a SB Ford GURU, with an outstanding reputation of not only SBF knowledge but as a honest dude who is willing to help a guy out.


If you do pick up a DIY stroker kit from him, he provides free access to SBFbuilding.com. Which has some 250 hi-res videos covering every aspect of building a SBF stroker motor.

This splash pan goes under the radiator cross member and according to what Midfifty has to say about it it is a stone guard to protect the pulleys and radiator . This one is full of pin holes . They sell an ABS replacement for $75. I wanted it to also protect my oil lines on my power steering rack so made up my own that hangs down a little lower to do just that. It is barely noticeable viewing from the front and is at the same level of the front cross member..
