I'm not commenting on the validity of anything in this discussion. But, I thought it was worth reading.

Isn't a Win a 2 bolt crank against Cleve being a 4 bolt ?

When I was looking for my Green monster I kept looking for a Cleve (took me 2 darn years btw) ...why? ... I was told very simply it was a stronger better engine.

The Clevelands are stronger, and the head design produces more high-end horsepower. Aftermarket heads for the Windsor even out the playing field, somewhat.

Only 351C Boss and CJ (Q code) came with 4-bolt mains, although all 351Cs can be converted to 4-bolt mains on all 5 mains. Only the 3 middle mains on 351Ws can be converted to 4-bolts.

And then there's the mystique of 351 Clevelands.

Cleveland! Yes please!!
At the machine shop getting freshened as we speak.
4 bolt thank you!

Ordered cam, and some goodies today!
Ordering pistons in the next few days, expect to have shortblock parts and heads back in about a month. I hope.

Cleveland was a heck of an engine, but with the aftermarket support of the Windsor and extinction and cost of Cleveland....tough call

Looks like someone filled in the intake ports on those heads or are they 2-V or Ausie heads? I have seen epoxy in them before. These had both intake and exhaust filled in. Was at Charlotte swap meet couple years ago.
