Re: few bits of info needed
Never heard of a Mex 351w. I've heard of/seen of Mex 302's but never a 351w...not to say that they weren't made. I'm sure there are some out there, somewhere.
Intake bolts--do yourself a favor and pick up some 5/16-18 by 3" long studs and matching grade 8 hardened washers and flange nuts. It makes installing the intake SUPER easy and it torques down properly the first time. Factory length bolts are, IIRC, 2 1/4" long 5/16-18 flange head bolts.
If the rods are stamped with their cooresponding cylinder number, that doesn't necessarily mean that its' been rebuilt. There were some like that right off the assembly line.
GET OUT & VOTE THIS NOVEMBER!!
