Is it Really a 351C?

  1. I take it you're new to Mustangs or Fords for that matter. 351W engines have the dipstick in the front also. All engines in these cars have a front sump oil pan unless it has been modified. And what D.Hearne said. 351C has a 4 or 2 cast on the top corner of the head that indicates whether it's a 4V or 2V head. It's visible without removing the rocker cover. You do need the numbers to determine if a 4V is a closed chamber or open and what year of head. :rolleyes:
  2. Snake03.......what was the verdict on the motor? Is it a Cleveland?
  3. It better be :fuss: lol :p
  4. My 351w's dipstick is on the drivers(right) side of the block, about where the #6 piston/con rod would be near.
  5. :rolleyes: It's a W motor.

  6. yeh that's right DOH! I forgot about that.
