Good day folks,

I bought a 351W block from a 92 ford pickup, harness include excluding the flywheel and transmission. I took it apart to learn how a motor works and found out there really isnt much to be honest to a motor. Im way up in the air on what to do at this point as I have 347 stroker in my 89 that works just fine so this is a down the road adventure that I can piece together as time allows. Money is an option and horsepower isnt really a big thing for me. I want RELIABILITY and fun..

I also have an LC9 from a gms sierra that I replaced with a lifter issue 175k on the motor. No issues besides that...

Lets say I went the 351 W what should i be concerned with keeping (see attached pictures) and what should I simply sell or give away to those in need. Im not concerned with making money unless it holds value to the market. The block appears to be in good shape. One cylinder has two nicks in the sleeve so I would assume it would easy to bore but im not the expert. Thoughts?

From a performance build standpoint you are going to want better heads and intake. Those are fine for a truck and you will find a market for them to an F150 crowd. You will need the fuel rails unless you decide to get some from the aftermarket. You will probably end up using the harness from your Mustang. For the most part, a performance build for a 351 you will utilize the short block & timing cover. Depending upon whether you go with a stroker crank you may not need the crank & rods.

Sell it all.It's a non roller so not worth doing since you have a good stroked motor in your stang now. You have time to look for a roller 351w ,pick up good heads,intake,cam,and maybe a stroker kit.Then you can build that one to your liking.
