Rebuilding a Ford 351 Cleveland

Part 5A: List of New Parts for the Ford 351C

Here's a pretty comprehensive list of everything in my 351C. If it says "re-used" that means it was salvaged off the old engine and re-used. Everything else was purchased new. - Matt Hannes

Other Notes:
- Machine work performed by Colorado Custom Cylinder Heads, 303-761-9077. They did a great job and I'd use them again.
- For break-in, I'm using Valvoline 10W-40 conventional oil. After break-in is complete, I'll switch to Mobil1 10W-30 synthetic.
