351C Parts

So, I traded my '90 7.5 for a '72 5.8C today and I need to know what family the motor fits into. It came out of a '72 LTD Country Squire and I'm dropping it into a '70 F-100, main thing I'm looking for is ignition, pans, and headers.


Thanks,

I had a 72 Gran Torino Sport with a 351C. This was in the mid 80s (high school). Mine was stock other than the headers. At the time...they were easy to get. I knew nothing about other stuff at the time.

Don't hold me to it , but I think it is part of the 335 family of motors, hope that helps.

that engine will be ok for a truck but it is better for a car. the cleveland and modified engines are in the same family. it is the 335 group and they can be fun to play with. the only thing is the cleveland has a smaller main cap size so torque issues can arise. other than that, if it is a 2wd truck, then everything should be ok, due to tons of aftermarket cleveland stuff.

You kidding this truck had seen its day as a truck LONG ago, the most it'll be hauling anymore is my bike(s) and the occasional engine/transmission/axle... Seriously contemplating doing a bit of SCCA Solo 2 with it when I'm done...

Nutter question, what flexplates work on the Cleveland?

The Clevo was used with C4's I believe with the windsor block bolt pattern

Either 180 or 184 tooth flexplates

Depending on the application...

C4 - FMX - C6 = 351C 2V / C6 = 351C 4V (4 bolt mains)

4 Speed Ford toploader also available.

Flywheel or Flexplate = 164 teeth.

The 351W is a completely different engine.

351W = 6 valve cover bolts / fuel pump bolts at 3 & 9 o'clock / has a timing cover.

351C = 8 valve cover bolts / fuel pump bolts to the drivers side front corner of the block, the bolts are at 12 & 6 o'clock / No timing cover.

Sources: 1965/72 & 1973/79 Ford Car Parts Catalogs.

No 351C's in F Series trucks, E-vans or Bronco's / = Passenger Cars/Ranchero's only.

Who the hell is BKW?

So the balance for the 351C flex plate is Cleveland specific?


And I know they only came in the cars, this one came out of a '72 LTD Country Squire Just felt it better placed under the hood of my '70 F-100...

also Dennis is correct (I can't believe I'm saying that ) the Cleveland shares its bell housing pattern with the SBFs....

Dennis said the 351C's only came with C4's...that is not correct.

351C 2V's could be had with a C4, FMX or C6 - it depended on the application.

ALL the 351C 4V's when equipped with auto's are C6's.

I can just imagine a 351C 4V 4 bolt main engine in a Mustang GT with a C4.

That C4 wouldn't last too long.

I'll research and type the flywheel/flexplate info and post it later today (Friday).
