Hey... Redbox88. What truck do you have?

The 351w was part of the only Ford "small block" family to ever get EFI starting in 1987 and the Cleveland was a short lived performance engine from the '60's that was never factory installed in a truck, so while it is possible to put one in a truck it would have been a DIY effort somewhere in the vehicles past. The 351/400m family did see use in these trucks in the '70s - '80s and that is the motor that most people mistake for a Cleveland.

Cleveland has 8 valve cover bolts, Windsor has 6. Cleveland's intake is "dry", the coolant comes out of the block above the timing cover, Windsor's coolant exits from the intake. Cleveland also used the small block bellhousing pattern and motor mounts, the 351M used the big block bell pattern (429/460) and it's own unique motor mounts. Cleveland's timing cover is integral to the block, with a flat steel plate covering it. And finally, the Cleveland's fuel pump bolt pattern is vertical, Windsor is horizontal.
