How to rebuild Ford V8 engines by Tom Monroe, 16USD look at link. I have read it, and I think it covers the most of the 351C.

Yes i must agree, for standard information on the all time favourite 351ci Cleveland engine. Tom Monroe book is a winner. I believe it is a SA design book. Spoke to Tom in the US many years ago, nice man.

Published by HP Books. Covers US Cs only. Most info should be good for AU Cs, but won't have anything that might be AU only.

302c and the 351c a different block ??? I thought these are all the same thing its just a difference in crank,rods/piston,A few different heads around.
I am dealing with my first rebuild of a square Aussie block (73) 2v cc heads and Aussie stock spread bore inlet.

Muswis thought you were talking about a 302W. You are right the 302 and 351 C blocks are the same, the pistons are the same. The rods are 6" on the 302C vs 5.7" on the 351C, and the stroke on the crank is reduced to 3" from 3.5" on the 302C
