Hi all
Just thinking of what Im going to do to my nugget in the future engine wise and after some thought and chatting to the guys on Friday night a 351 Windsor is sounding a good option.
So a couple of questions.
1. TerroristGHIA mentioned that there was a new source of 351 roller motors in Australia and that they were pretty well priced. Does anyone have the contact info?
2. Location of engine number? Do they have an engine number as such above the starter motor like the Australian delivered V8's? That will be pretty important info to know....... :wink:
Cheers Matt

Matt, Contact the guys at Street Built Racing in WA. Matt, Chad or Jeff will be able to help you, and they can answer every question you have. Re number locations and so on. I think the numbers are in the exact same location as Bretts motor since they are F truck roller blocks.

Good thing they stroke out to 408 nice and easy, costs as much to do a 408 stroker as it does to do a stock rebuild.

Did think about that but I have read too many bad news stories about the piston pin height and oil control with a motor doing towing.
There are a few options on the table.

XR9ute is my contact. The numbers are located above the starter at the rear of the left hand bank. They can be a pain to get to.
