Default Re: v8 swap

any 302 header should work on a 351 because they are the same head except for the bolt diameter all the ports are the same size just diffrent internal parts

http://www.jegs.com/i/Hedman/500/89500/10002/-1
thats a good set right there they also have a v8 swap kit

http://www.jegs.com/i/Trans+Dapt/969/9716K/10002/-1

hopefully that helps

oh and shorti headers for a 302 might work , or mabye block huggers

an aluminum crossflow radiator will work. James Duff sells them specifically for your application. A friend of mine that used on a LWB Ranger for his 1955 F100. He has no kooling problems at all. Infact he wonders about his engine being too cool.
