Tom, isn't your 64 Gal powered by a 4v C? That thing move pretty good in that big car.

No 4V Clevo in the Gal, it is the fabled "High Torque 2V Clevo". The engine in this article just might sneak in to the '64 if the '67 Gal is not done in time.

say im tyler the 351c is a great motor for street use the assuie heads will give you the lowend tork with the two beral ports and the horse power with the closed chambers you should get 10-1cpr wflat top pistons will run good with 93 octane gas

if you use the for beral heads you will lose the low end tork and you will have high end power and tork unless you use like a set of 4-10 gears in the rear

by the way i have a 90 mustang with a BOSS 351c a C6 tans and a 9inch rearend other than the intake, carb, roller rockers, headers, and ignithion it is stock and i runn a 12.56 in the qurter leting costing the last 100 yards

Re: The Blind Leading the Blind

Nice, I guess my 2v in my mach 1 should move pretty good when I eventually get around to building it. First off I still need to have you handle the rust...

Everybody was new at one time. At least you're not offended by the criticism.

On the other hand, your builder should know better. Unfortunately age does not equal wisdom.

Remember Tex's advice?

"Leo, take this terrific engine to someone who knows a thing or two about them. This guy's gonna butcher it, and overcharge you to do so. Run."

I'll be looking forward to an update on your original post.

Re: 351 Cleveland 4V Top End Build

Nice build. Having run several clevelands, I have to ask - why the open chamgber heads? Assume you are running some kind of pop up piston to get decent compression? It'll be interesting to follow this, I thought that the combo of pop up and open chamber would play havoc with the flame fronts in the chamber, leading to pinging.

Keep us posted on how things go!
