Hello

Just bought a very nice and low millage 351W engine that I was told came from a Police Van

I will turn this engine to a 408cui stroker so maybe there is some value for anyone that need nice piston, rods and crank

I can't tell if there really is any special with this so maybe anyone can share some information?
My previous feeling is that the rods and pistons might be of better quality?

See attached pictures

Normal production 351W parts , nothing special for "police" on the 351 engines , sorry.
Found out the rods are beefier and Ford mounted a true roller cam chain...Fully threaded oil passages but otherwise standard

The "football head" rod bolts have been used for some time just like the double row timing chain and the screw in oil gallery plugs. 94-95 blocks got hydraulic roller cams too. Again nothing "special" but different than the 60s and 70s engines for sure.
