The problem here is that a lot of aftermarket cranks are sold as "cleveland" cranks but the reality is they are actually 351 windsor cranks with turned down journals.First thing to do is check snout diameter .You may find that it is a windsor size as well.If this is the case I,m sure rollmaster actually make a timing set that is specific for this application.Failing that the spacer itself is available from Ford racing under part number M-19009-A341.
