Re: difference between 302 and 351 cleveland

There is not much difference visually at all. If it has the original rocker covers then if you know the approx year of the vehicle it is originally from then it may help as they have different colours for the engine size. Usually it was Blue for 351 and red for the 302 in the early Aussie Fords.

If you want to be sure then probably the easist way is to take out the spark plugs and use a piece of wire or something to measure the stroke of the engine.
