About the only difference between yours and mine are the 1.7 roller rockers and Duraspark ignition on mine. I would think somewhere North of 330 would be more like it... but Mike knows his stuff, so I'm guessing he's probably on it. thumb

Yours even looks like mine with the Edelbrock valve covers and "Old Ford Blue" paint. thumb

For a little while I thought that was my motor.

Pastorpat,

Sounds and looks nice. Did the cylinder heads have the harden seats for the non-leaded fuel?

Pastorpat;243154 Wrote:I just finished building and getting my 351 running. Here are the build details. I purchased the motor after it had most of the machining work done. $600.00
It is a 71 block. It was .040 over on flattop Pistons with reliefs. The heads had been rebuilt but it had been a while so I pulled them apart and did a mild porting. Mostly just cleaning them up. It has dual valve springs. Double roller timing chain.

I had to purchase cam, beatings, and gasket set. Summit camshaft 5200. Intake 281 @ 486 and exhaust 296 @ 512. Dual plane intake, edelbrock . Holley 600. Hooker headers. Stock ignition.
I think I spent less than $400 more on bearings and camshaft and gaskets . So all in about 1,000.
It came with a nice set of ARP bolts.

Need to get an exhaust system. Thinking 2 1/2 pipes.

Runs nice.
Any thoughts on HP and tork?

It still has the stock valve seats. I do run lead substitute or I add some 110 aviation gas. The avgas has 4 times the amount of lead that regular gas did back in the day. So I blend the gas. I also don't used gas with alcohol in it. There are places you can buy non-alcohol gas.

You can just use this instead if you want.

With flattop pistons and the .040 head gasket and stock heads that's close to what I came up with. About 9 to one. Chamber pressure on compression check was 150 psi. If I remember correctly.
