Question 351 C rebuild

Can anyone give me the clearances required for overhual of 351 C
Looking for the following:
Big end
Crank end float
Big end side clearance

What pistons would you guys recommend eg, forged, cast etc.
Also can anyone recommend a cam for street driving
Revs around 2000 - 6000

Thanks, Mike

Re: 351 C rebuild

any car manual with clevos in will have the clearances. 0.02-0.04 for bearings and 0.1-0.2 end float.
the cam will be around 220 duration @ 50 and .530lift. with 2v heads. 4v's need longer duration on exhaust. for street i'd go good quality cast pistons, moly rings and the best hone you can get.
