351W 9.5" deck height, large 3" main journals
351C 9.2" deck height, better 2.75" main jounals

The large mains of the windsor create extra heat therefore are not suited to high revs. federal mogul make a bearing spacer kit that allows a cleveland main size crank to be used.
Of course the large dimensions of the windsor make strokers easy and cheap...then you don't have to rev them. I see stock windsors go over 6000rpm with no problems..but they do use full grooved mains. The windsor is slightly lighter but then an ally headed cleveland isn't going to be too heavy.
Depends what you want really.
