First time Mustang owner!! Good to be here.
« on: February 22, 2009, 04:59:30 PM »
We just bought a 68 coupe that someone put a 351 in.  Needs minor body work and other cosmetics.  We are in love with it!!!!  Never owned a Mustang before but glad we are in the loop now.

Welcome to the site.  Pull up a chair and stay awhile.  So, the Mustang bug bit you, huh? ;D  I've had my 65 for many, many years, and I still work on it.  So, you will never finish the car.  What year engine, and is it a Cleveland or a Windsor?

I was told it was a 70 engine?  Not sure where the casting number is to check myself.  It is a Windsor.  Isn't that the small block, whereas the Cleveland is the big block??  I am learning here.

The Windsor came out in '69 and the Cleveland came out in 1970, so it could very well be a Clevo, which is the best of the two engines because of the head on the Clevo breathes much better.

Here is some reading  material for you.   ;D

You can find the casting number just above the fuel pump mount.  Taz, I will be moving this thread to the Classic section in a little while, so there is where you can continue talking about your classic.

If it is a 70 the casting numbers should be on the top of the block at the back behind the intake manifold. At least thats where mine were on my 72 351c block. And yes the clevo heads were superior at the time due to their better flow.
