Hello,

I have a V8 engine in my shed in pieces and I am unable to verify how many cubes it is, and also if it is a Cleveland or a Windsor. Is there any way of telling the four possible variants apart from each other or what sort of castings/markings should I be looking for.

I really want this engine gone, so I am keen for any information. Once I have verified what it is, I will be posting it on eBay or here on the For Sale forums.

Thanks in advance,

Holocaust

Google image cleveland and windsor.

They are fairly different. Clevelands are much bigger than 302 windsors.
