Is a 351 Windsor block the same as a 302 block?


Is a 351 Windsor block the same as a 302 block?

You can spot the difference pretty easily by looking at the front of the engine. On a 302 (or smaller c.i.d.) blocks, the distributor mount is almost flush with the top of the block (where the intake sits). A 351W block is taller. So, the distributor mount is below the block surface where the intake sits.

What transmission fits a 351w?

Even a 66-69 C4 can easily handle a stocker 351w built with good parts and they can be found everywhere including dumpsters where most end up.

What is better a 302 or 351 Windsor?

So for equal money, a 351 will have more cubes, more low end torque, and a lower RPM peak. A 302 will have the same HP, but a slightly higher tq peak with lower tq numbers. In almost any situation, cubes are better. Unless you can make your goals cheaper with the super-cheap 302.

Will a 302 oil pan fit a 351W?

No the 302 will not fit a 351W.

Will a C4 bolt to a 351W?

if it’s a 351w it should bolt up to the bell housing of your c-4. I am Skuzzlebutt, Lord of the Mountain! Most, if not all C-4s have the small block bolt pattern, So it should work fine.

Will a 351 Windsor fit a C4 transmission?

Registered. yes. the 351C uses the same bellhousings as the small blocks. However, one thing to remember is if you build up the engine much or plan on racing the stock C4 is a weaker transmission than a C6.

Are 302 and 351W oil pans the same?

The only difference between a 351w and 302 pan is the rear seal radius. The 351w has a much larger seal because of the 3″ main bearings.

Is the Ford 400 the same as the 351C?

Ford billed the 400 as the 351C’s big brother. It was designed to provide brisk acceleration in medium to heavyweight vehicles in an engine package that was smaller and lighter than the FE V8 Engines and the 385 Series Ford V8’s. The Ford 400 engine was based on the 351 Cleveland.

What kind of compression does the Ford 351M have?

The 351M’s unique piston was a dished type that produced 8.0:1 compression. Interestingly, the 351 Cleveland built such a strong performance reputation and market appeal that Ford referred to the 351M as a “351 Cleveland” in their own marketing literature for at least the first couple years after the 351M was introduced.

What kind of transmission does a 400 block have?

Unlike the 351C, almost all 400 blocks used the large bellhousing bolt pattern used by the 385 family big-block and were typically equipped with the higher torque-capacity C6 transmission. There were a small number of 400 block castings produced in 1973 with the dual bellhousing patterns.

What was the compression ratio of the Ford 400?

Big torque at low engine speeds was a major priority of the 400’s design, and the 400’s long stroke helped to assure that performance in a package that was both smaller and lighter than its predecessor, the 385 series (429/460) big block. In 1971, the 400 used a flat top piston that produced a 9.0:1 compression ratio.
