#1
Howdy from Idaho,

Over the last 2 days my visiting father in law wanted to help tear down my 1971 351c matching # engine for a rebuild. Being I needed to go to the bathroom several times during this procedure( I'm getting old as well) I would often come back to more bolts in a bucket, that wasnt I.D'ed. I finally logged and bagged all the parts but I have a group that I can not identify. I asked the father in law and he said I dont know. Well he is 86 now so he probably doesn't know.
Please look over the picture and help me identify them................Many Thanks for your help!

machattack,

Hopefully all of these made it to your parts bucket. The bolt is a rocker arm bolt and the stamped metal pieces are rocker arm oil baffles. They deflected the oil coming up through the push rods so the valve train was lubricated. Solid lifter Boss engines and 1970 model year hydraulic 351 C's had the baffle in the rocker/valve covers.

These oil baffles are also found in later years 351C's, my 73 has them as well.

Vinnie, the oil baffles were used on all 71/ 351C, 351M and 400 engines through the end of production in 1982 (Except "R" Boss/HO engine). The end of the line for a workhorse of an engine.

@ Fabrice.....there's always that missing bolt or (fill in the blank)

I knew when I answered that way it would be confusing. 2 of them was in the picture so they were out of the pile. 14 were in the the bottom of bucket. So 14 plus 2 is 16. Hey Mom lokk.........I can Syffer those #s  whistling   Thanks folks for all your help.........always appreciated.
