Product Description

351 Windsor Short Block
Our 351 Windsor short blocks are just the ticket for that budget build! Our re-manufactured 351W short block starts as good cores that are disassembled, then placed in state-of-the-art, environmentally safe burners, followed by steel shot blasting to clean. The blocks are magnufluxed, inspected for cracks, bored and precision honed to manufacturer's specifications. They are then fitted with new, .030"-.060" over cast aluminum pistons, and cast rings*. 28-oz. cranks are precision ground to recommended specifications, and micro-polished. These short blocks include a double roller timing chain, but do not include cam. The cylinder bores are machined the minimum amount to bring them in to spec, between .030" and .060". All bores will be the same size. If a cylinder cannot be bored back to true, then a sleeve will be installed so that the block can still be serviceable.

Installation Note
MUST Re-use original threaded oil filter bung. Cast aluminum pistons and cast iron rings are recommended for naturally aspirated combinations only. Not recommended for superchargers, turbos, or nitrous. Always check piston-to-valve clearance when installing aftermarket performance heads or cams.

Applications
-Fits 1979-1995 Mustang

    4 Stars   best bang for your buck
    By on 6/24/2014
    I bought this short block to drop into a 1994 GT roller. Block came with .40 over Sealed Power pistons (awesome) and was machined well. This was the first step to my 351 build/ swap; best bang for your buck.

    Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

    5 Stars   Excellent Quality/No Regrets
    By on 2/14/2017
    Image uploaded by marcus l. My block came bored 0.030" over with 0.030" pistons. I was amazed at the build quality! You can tell they used good quality assembly lube originally. Great cross hatches on cylinder bore, good quality cam/crank bearings. Deck straightness was dead on along with cylinder out of round and tapper. Crankshaft end-play was in spec. Overall very happy I purchased this, I went carbureted route and got good reliable power out of it!

    Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
