    Findings in my Oil-Pan

    That is correct, no need to use the high volume pump. Other than all out racing there is no need for it in the Cleveland and it is hard n the pump drive shaft. Good luck!!

    Rear windshield question

    I ran into this as well, the cheap ones from most big box Mustang catalogs are cheap knock offs that are way too stiff. I think I found some good ones at a local Auto Parts store. Or, I might have just ordered different ones from a different supplier. I can't remember. Just order from a couple...

    Refreshing a 351 Cleveland?

    Looks like I may have to modify a spreadbore intake like the Boss one that you did. I have a spreadbore intake, I tried to buy an "L" intake off Ebay, but it was cracked when I got it and I had to ship it back. Not sure if I want to keep cycling through them until I get a good one. Everybody...

    Refreshing a 351 Cleveland?

    I have run the Edelbrock performer on a few different engines and while it's bottom end is good, it dies at just over 5000 in my experience.

    Refreshing a 351 Cleveland?

    Thank You for your interest boilermaster. My plans have changed a bit since first starting this thread, and I guess that looks confusing.

    Painting new fuel tank?

    I once stopped a pair of women from jacking their car up on an incline without stands, with a cheap Walmart hydraulic jack, and they were going to jack the car up by the bottom of the fender. I feel like I saved a life that day!!

    Oddball connecting rod

    I have inherited a set of 8 pistons and connecting rods for a 351C. I was looking through them yesterday and found that I have 2 number 8 connecting rods. Not sure how this happened, but here is my question. If I am having them all reconditioned can I run one of them in the missing number 7...
