Did you get the motor running?
Not yet. I am gathering all my parts still. Cleaning...painting and bolting on. I have a few parts to order and I should be looking good. Today, I have the fuel pump on, and close to putting the water pump and Alt. brackets on. Making a few adjustments here and there. Finding bolts is quite fun.....all mixed up in a couple of cans and boxes. So I have to sort threw them and find what I need.....needle in a hay stack !
I am hoping with in a week or two I will be able to fire it up !!:cool:

after rebuilding 6 302's (2 of them 3 times due to idiot friends...), i don't even question where a bolt goes anymore, and i imagine a 351W should have the same bolts... it's fun though...

:idea:::HINT:: Ziplock freezer bags (1gal. size)..... intake bolts= 1 bag, valve cover bolt= another bag... and so on and so on.... PLUS u can put some PB blaster in them so they will eat rust, oh wait, never did test if PB will eat the bag...ALSO magic marker on the bag whats in it lol. :mad2:

I did do the bags for everything I took apart....but when I got the motor and all the stuff with it....that was handed to me in cans and boxes. Thats where I am looking for bolts and stuff. I am smarter then that and would remember how it was easier if I took it all apart myself. I just dont know whats missing and what I do have.
