Re: bell housing

I'd say they are the same, I have quite a few of them and I can't find any difference, apart from early one's are 5 bolt so don't fit and of course different bolt spacing for the gearbox's.

Re: bell housing

No they are different.. Windsors are much narrower than a cleveland.

Re: bell housing

A Windsor bellhousing WILL bolt to a Cleveland. They have the same bolt pattern. The 351M/400 have a big block pattern and require different bellhousings.
