eons ago i raced the old 351c mills some --only time one failed was cause the oil pump shaft twisted off. had a 340 mo-pig do the same thing once--
i don't recall any serious oiling problems with it. it was one of the more fun fords we built--
at one time i was thinking of building a 426 stroker mill from a assortment of 351/400/ and 351w parts for an AC kit project. i figure some of you remember that 426ci 351w kit that PAW out at chatsworth sold back in the day?
only thing this one had aluminum 351 boss heads with 7/16 studs and so on. so it was sort of a mini-big block chevy painted ford blue--
the cobra deal fell through and i ended up selling the mill new in crate and never fired it up--LOL
the fellow that bought it said it was a real screamer though---
we didn't build that many fords -i wanted to build a 429-460 back when summit was selling those big -altered port heads-- but never got around to it.
-mostly chevy big blocks with a few MOPARs tossed in for fun.
those were the good old days--LOL!''hell we thought that 500hp 327 chevy was er--small back in the day--
