Is there any way to tell if it is a windsor or or cleveland??? And what is the difference?

Cleveland looks VERY different in the front. Look at any 5.0 mustang around. If it looks like that, it's a windsor 351.
Ummm, did a cleveland ever make it's way into a production bronco?

Whatever its in and what year would probably help someone that knows more about it. As for a cleveland being in a earlier bronco, I would venture to say yes, but I don't really have anything to base that answer off of for sure.

No, Clevelands were only made during the 80's

actually the 351 Clevelands were made only in the 70's. 1970 model year to '74 or '75, I can't remember which. They were never put in Broncos from the fatory.

On a side note, I don't know if anyone on here plays with Clevelands but I'm going to be tearing down one of mine from a Mustang pretty soon and will be offering some 4bbl closed chamber heads, Torker intake, MSD dist. and other goodies for sale.

Clevelands were never put in any truck period. A lot of people call the 351M a A Cleveland and will try and sell it as one.

the cleveland is part of the 335 series of small blocks produced from 1970-1974. it is a heavier block by far, and has a completely different oiling and cooling system. As well the 351m is a spinoff of the 351c.

i have a 351 C with 2V heads and stock 2bbl intake. I would be interested in your old parts depending on price and cost of shipping since i am so far away from ya. so, keep me in mind when you pull it apart and do your craigslisting. :thumbup

Heavier by far = 23 pounds...?

From Ford's official production weights:

351W-2V FORD-MERC X X CFXHD238 533 538 541
351C-2V TOR-MONT X X CHXCD238 556 561 564
