Stupid SB questions from a BB guy
Hi guys, I don't know much about SB engines, so I have to bug you for some answers. I tried a search, but didn't come up with what I needed.
I'm installing a 351W into a buddy's 1970 Mustang. He bought the 351 from a guy a year ago, and I don't know much about it other than it's a mild 351 with '69 heads. I guess the block is a later model, as the block casting # is E3AE 6015 BA, and the dampener # is E1TE-D3A. There's no dipstick tube hole in the timing chain cover. It didn't come with a flexplate.
Here's my questions...
Will the stock 302 flexplate work on the 351?
What about the stock starter?
Will the timing chain covers interchange, or will I have to drill the cover out for the dipstick tube?
Will I go crazy before I get this thing in?
Sorry about all the dumb questions - I've never had much to do with Windsor engines.
