Please read the thread, then take the poll


I finally got to work on my 351w again this weekend. But before we maid any forward progress we had to do the timing chain shuffle.

So we removed the blanket to find our well wrapped project 351w




Then we unwrapped it.
If you look closely youl see the problem.
(Here is a hint)
It's the wrong Damn timing chain cover :banghead :banghead :banghead
(The cover originaly on this engine was cracked)

Thats a standard rotation cover. It has the blocked off Fuel pump port so I knew it was EFI. The guy I got it from said it came off an 88 which meant it would also be reversed rotation (for serpentine belt) which is what I need. Well guess what, it's not reverse rotation which can mean only one thing.

Blocked off F.P. port + Standard rotation = 86 5.0 EFI :banghead

I've already got 2 of those laying here. The junkyards here wont sell me one unless I buy a complete engine. So my friends at LMC hook me up with a new one for $99.00.



So upside down the engine goes to take off the pan.



The pan is off, pulling the balancer.


Cover off, removing the gasket.
(Look at my bald spot :shocked)



The new, correct cover is now on.



Pan and balancer back on.
Also we take 1 step forward, the water pump is installed. :thumbup





And then it got re wraped and it's blanket thrown back over it. Where it will stay untill I get some more $$$$$

Sounds like an afternoon at the pick and pull would yield you the entire non-performance part of the list Gack.

You could be cleaning, buffing and rebuilding the junkyard pieces while the money grows for the hi-po stuff.

Are you going saginaw ? What about A/C ?

Looks like you have dumped some serious cabbage in the engine so far.

Damn, I'm in the same boat right now. I got a timing cover off a 90/91 with a 5.0. Clarko said it might be the wrong rotation. Is there any difference you can see from the outside to tell without pulling the water pump?

We just plopped the engine in Sat. Luckliy I haven't added any fluids yet.

87 up is reverse rotation (serpintine belt) The left water port faces up. (dvr side)

86 prier is standard (v-belts) The left water port faces down. (dvr side)


The years apply only to trucks. Cars got serpintine setups erlier.

I have been looking for a new EFI intake manifold for my Bronco, but I would like to use the stock throttle body and throttle linkage/setup. Is there one out there anywhere? I have seen the ones for Mustangs, but the throttle body is on the side of the manifold, not the front. If not, how can I use one of these side facing manifolds? (Thought this would be a good time to ask since you were talking engines.) P.S. - It is a 351w. :rockon

The only intake that uses totaly stock parts is this one.

It's a good intake, much improved over the stock 351w intake, but it still has a slight problem of running some cylinders leaner than others. But overall a verry good performance intake for someone looking for ease of instilation.



I will be running this car style upper intake on my car style 5.8 lower. Turned so that the TB faces the drivers side.

This intake combination flows better than the truck setup and has a more even flow dispersion without sacrificing low end torque.

Here is a link to a pic of one installed on a truck.

Check out RLKBOB's Super moters site. He also runs a Edelbrock Performer car intake.
