Engine swap question
#1
How much hassle is it to swap a 302 with a 351C?

None.
Mounts and trans bolt up to the 302's stuff.

absolutely everything will bolt right up. I had a 302 in my mach and swapped in a 351 c with no trouble at all. use the 302 flywheel and starter in the cleveland. will have to modify the exhuast pipes but thats about it.

Start turning those wrenches. Hopefully you'll use this to your advantage with the rest of the family! Tongue Only direct changeout available is a great answer.

The front end dress is different. Balancer, pulleys, brackets, etc won't swap between 302 and 351C

I think you may need to change the radiator shroud.

Some of the brackets will, some won't swap. I got a fully dressed 351c and mixed and matched some of the stuff off of the 302 and had no trouble with it at all. The fan shroud will work fine too with no modifications needed.

Just to clarify, a set of 5.0L motor mounts should fit a Cleveland? I actually have some from Energy Suspension from a previous project.
