351W question

I have a 1979 F150 with a 302 in it. I am planning on swapping it out and replacing it with a 351W. The truck has a C-6 with the tall bell housing. I was given a 351W but it has the short circular bell housing.

My question? Is there a 351W with the tall bell housing bolt pattern?

Re: 351W question

Hi there, to my knowledge you should be able to put the 351 right in, in place of the 302. I have swapped 302's out with a c6 with no problems. It should have a 28oz flywheel or flexplate up to 85 I think. The flex plate can be reused. What you may be looking for is some flexplates had a higher tooth count. Just check and make sure you motor mounts will work. Hope this helps
