[edit] 351 Windsor

A basic Windsor engine design but with a higher deck height than the 302. Not to be confused with the 351 Cleveland. There are no easily interchangeable parts, although a "Clevor" hybrid can be built; Edelbrock sells heads for building a Clevor as well.

There is some discussion about early 351W engines being stronger due to higher nickel content. Research by some have shown this to be a myth, although some builders still seek out the earlier 1971-'73 engines, just in case it's true.

The bore spacing and bore diameter between the 351 and the 302/5.0L remains the same at 4.38" and 4.00" respectively. A safe overbore is 0.030", but some blocks will allow more, but before boring beyond 0.030" the block should be sonic tested for thickness.

There are two 351W deck heights, 1969-1970 produced engines are 9.480" with the 1971 through end of production in 1995 at 9.503".

The crank is significantly different with the mains being 3.00" vs. the smaller Windsor engines being 2.25". The firing order is also different 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8 (the same as a 5.0L HO) rather than the 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. See Ford firing orders.

The significant interchangeable parts with other small blocks from the Windsor family are the heads. While the heads are in general interchangeable, there are differences in the bolt sizes: 1/2" for the 351 vs. 7/16" for the rest. To use a 302 head on a 351, special intake gaskets are needed. Camshafts will interchange but the firing order will require that the distributor cap be wired based on the firing order that the camshaft was ground with.

Most accessories will bolt up, though not all heads are machined for total interchange of these parts. Front timing covers and water pumps will interchange but a word of caution as there are many variations of water pumps and some covers do not have provisions for mechanical fuel pumps.

A word of caution - Ford used whatever stock of parts was available, no matter what size engine family. A 1972 vehicle just might have a 1970 coded engine part. Additionally, factory service parts may be whatever is on the shelf, also not necessarily the current year. This means that before you commit money for an upgrade, that you know exactly what you have.

In 1969, the 351 Windsor reached its highest horsepower rating of 290 at 5800 RPM

[edit] Ford MEL Series

In 1958 came the introduction of the MEL series engines. These were some of the largest and heaviest V8 engines Ford has ever built.

  • Made from 1958 to 1965
  • In one factory hotrodded version, the 430 was named Super Marauder and came with three two barrel carburetors

Warning Note: The Super Marauder was the 430CI/360HP 4V. The Super Marauder 3 X 2 400HP engine was the late 1958 production year Mercury offering, either assembly or OTC (over the counter).

  • Bore and stroke of 4.29" x 3.70" inches
  • Compression rations started at 10.5:1 but soon began to decline late in 1959 to 10:1 at 350 horsepower
  • The higher horsepower versions of the 430 remained within its first year of production with horsepower of 365, 375 and 400
  • In 1959, the horsepower slowly began to be reduced, yet made 345 hp even with a slightly lower compression ratio of 10:1
  • In 1960,the 430 cubic inch used a milder camshaft, producing 315 horsepower

Warning Note: The 1960-'62 Lincoln 430 was 2V.

  • In 1963 the 430 got an overhaul with new pistons, heads and a four barrel carburetor, pushing compression to 10.1:1 and a horsepower rating of about 345
  • It could be found in the 1958 Lincoln Continental convertible, rated at 400 horsepower and nearly 500 foot pounds of torque
  • While Lincoln did order Super Marauder 3 X 2 Lincoln-specific kits, the option was never assembled. The Lincoln kits were sold to the Mercury division and offered OTC.
  • Mercury also used the 430 cubic inch until 1960

  • By 1960, the 352 HP engine was available with an aluminum intake manifold producing approximately 360 hp

Warning Note: The 1960 352CI/360HP engine was the intro of the HP blocks (352/390/406/early 427) and the early 332/352 machined combustion chambers/mechanical valve train were also used in this HP offering.

[edit] 360 cubic inch

[edit] 351 Cobra Jet

  • 1971 (late) - '74
  • Mostly four bolt mains, however there are some with two bolt mains
  • Possessed a spreadbore bolt pattern cast iron intake manifold
  • Autolite carburetor 4300-D
  • Horsepower varied from approximately 280 during the first year of production down to 246 hp by 1973-74.

[edit] 351 BOSS

  • Most desirable
  • Only available in the 1971 BOSS 351 Mustang
  • Four bolt mains
  • High nodular content cast iron crankshaft
  • Solid lifter camshaft with screw in studs
  • Adjustable rockers
  • Aluminum four barrel intake

[edit] 351 HO

In 1972, Ford rolled the 351 BOSS over into the 351 High Output for the new year. Slightly less desirable than the Boss 351, the 351 High Output used the spread bore bolt pattern cast iron manifold for the Autolite 4300-D.

With a milder camshaft, the output of the 351 HO was about 275 horsepower.

[edit] 351M and 400

  • Ford part numbers and casting ID codes for the internal parts of M-block (351M/400) engines, including cam specs
  • By 1975 the 351 Modified was issued with Cleveland heads and a two barrel carburetor
  • Hydraulic lifters
  • Cast iron intake manifold
  • Two barrel carburetor

The 351 Modified and the 400 which was introduced since 1971, are virtually identical with very few exceptions. Wikipedia's Ford 335 engine article indicates these 2 blocks are nearly identical, too.

Australia manufactured the 351 Cleveland and derivative "302" Cleveland at Ford Australia Engine plant in Geelong, Victoria, Australia from 1975-'81.

Although 302 Cleveland engines were being assembled in Australia since 1972, these were made up from imported US Cleveland blocks and Australian made crankshafts, heads, pistons and rods.

It is believed that the original Cleveland molds and equipment were shipped to Australia not long after the last motors were manufactured in the USA in late 1974. This included a large supply of 4V cylinder heads and 4MA and 4MAB crankshafts.

Both Australian built motors (302C and 351C) used a unique Australian cast crankshaft, not the forged 4M cranks used in US motors. Australian made crankshafts have 351 or 302 cast into the front journal.

Australian made high performance 351C motors (290 hp plus) used the imported 4MA or 4MAB cranks.

All Australian 302C engines used cast crankshafts and 6" long rods and closed chamber heads (58-60cc chamber volume) made at the Geelong plant. 351 engines used an open chamber head of about 74cc. All heads were of a small port (2V) size, even for a 4 bbl option.

4V heads (US made) were available on Australian GT and GTHO optioned 351C motors up to about 1975 when supplies eventually ran out.

2 bbl and 4 bbl carbs are used on both motors, however after 1976 Carter Thermoquads of about 800cfm rating were used instead of the Autolite carb, this included the 302C. 302C engines supplied with a 4 bbl Carter Thermoquad carb after about 1977 had a uniquely modified spreadbore type manifold which feature a reduced plenum area for increased throttle response. These 4 bbl manifolds were not used on 351C engines.

The OEM 2 bbl carb supplied standard on 302C engines was a Stromberg not the Autolite as supplied in the US on 351C. This carb was adapted with an aluminum spacer plate.

Australian made 302 and 351 engines were used in all locally manufactured vehicles that had a V8 as an option. This included but not limited to Falcon, Fairlane, LTD, F100-F350.

Last Australian made Cleveland motors were installed in 1982 XE Model Fords.

Sadly it is common for Australian made Cleveland blocks to have severe core shift. Overboring past about 0.020" may be a problem.

Notes:
1 Windsor and Cleveland versions of the 2V were used interchangeably from 1970 through 1974. In 1975, the 400 and 351M were merged so only the 351M/400 was used.
2 Note that there was only one year in which a 351W came with a 4V setup. Starting in 1970, all 4V engines were Cleveland based.
