73 302 to 351C swap
#1
I have read many threads about swapping a big block, but have not found one for swapping a 351C. I know the bell housing pattern is the same. So what goes into a swap like this one?

Are frame mounts compatible?
Will the 302 radiator suffice?
Any changes to suspension or steering?

Thanks,

Pretty much a direct swap. Especially if you have the accessory brackets for the 351. My car was a 302 car. It's now a 408 Cleveland stroker. Pretty easy swap.

I'm not positive but I believe the 302 radiator is smaller. (at least the one in my 73 351 coupe is larger than the one in my 73 302 vert both had factory A/C) Also I think there were different front spring as well.

'73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

'73 F code convertible. Bright red. Needs total restore. (IE HOT MESS)

I'm still running my stock springs and stock rad with no issues. They may be different?? But it hasn't caused me any problems.

Exhaust manifolds are different..

The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.
