Good luck with that! 351W engines swapped into a Dent will be slim pickings because these trucks weren't offered with a 351W.

How about a 302 Windsor? It'll only be missing about one inch of deck height.

Are you sure ya know what ya got???

Well the valve cover has a factory sticker saying 351. So it may not be a windsor but its a 351. All the parts I've bought have fit for a windsor. Not sure how many are inner changable if any but they do fit.

Uh-oh...... I hope you have receipts because I bet your rig has a 351M and not a 351W... not much will swap since they are from two completely different engine families.

Let's figure it out:

351M/400
351C, 351M, or 400 Ford Engine - What is the difference? - FordMuscle

351M & 400 introduced in 1977 F100/350, have 8 valve cover bolt holes per side. There is no timing cover per se, just a flat engine cover plate.

The fuel pump bolts to the left side of the engine block, the bolt pattern is 12 & 6 o'clock.

351W wasn't available until 1981 in F150/350 & Bronco. Never installed in any year F100.

The dizzy on the OP's engine was last installed in 1976. 1977 and later dizzy cap has male ends and a plastic adapter below that the cap attaches to.

Definitely looks like a small block/Windsor.
If you can easily reach the lower thermostat bolt, then it's a 351W. If that lower bolt is hopelessly obscured by the timing cover, then it's a 302, or possibly a 289/260/255.
How many bolts holding your crankshaft pulley to the balancer?
