So i finally moved my 4.6l engine and 5 speed manual tremec trans into their respective homes and started it up new years eve. Just to say i got it running before the end of the year. Granted i need to purge the brakes (vaccum power brakes to hydro with ABS swap)bleed out the power steering rack/system (complete rack and pump swap) and hook up/fill the radiator. Thats the short list. But it fired and ran for a min with no blinking emergency lights or unknown leaks. So heres the rub.. i found a 351 windsor 5.8l for a song. I sang and it is now sitting on my engine stand in the process of being stripped. I want to bring it down to the bare block without removing the crank or pistons. I was told its a 100,000 mile engine outta a late model f-250. Now that being said i had to pull it from the year plus overgrown weeds somehow into the bed of my truck. (Multiple picks with my engine lift) now thats why i am askin if anyone knows about compatibility. Will my trans Bell housing bolt up to this block? I know i will have to pick up a flywheel and clutch seeing as though its only got a flex plate on the back. After its dissection if all goes well I would like to do one of three things. Install it into my coupe skeleton after purchasing ALOT. Two. Sell Three instal this engine into the car i just finished swaping a v6 auto to a v8 manual. Do I seek out mustang parts or ford truck parts? What are you all got for ideas? Until the summer this 351 is most likely be on the engine stand being picked apart untill i get to see how worn it is. Clean her up fresh coat or three of paint and start putting it back together pretty.
