Assembling my 351 Cleveland. Reusing the entire reciprocating assembly
from my CJ block. Just wanted to freshen things up after almost 20 years
of running great and Drag Week 2013. Hopefully with a fresh rings it will
make some MORE POWER!
393 Cleveland Stroker - First Start
This is the first start up of a 393 Cleveland Stroker that I've been
meticulously building over the last several months. It's been a great
learning experience for me as I was able to not only plan and assemble the
components for the engine, but design and build the test stand as well.
Here are the specs for this engine:
Edelbrock dual plane aluminum intake manifold -- For run in only, switching
to Weiand X-celerator 2V that has been converted to FI for later.
Edelbrock Alloy heads -- CNC Ported by Cam Research in Englewood, CO
1.73:1 ratio Harland Sharp Rocker Arms
Probe 393C stroker kit (10669-030-PS-F393C):
4340 Forged steel crank, 3.85" stroke, Nitride Hardened
Probe H-beam forged steel rods, 5.956 long
Probe forged pistons, 16cc dish, 2618-T61 Aluminum, Full Floating
Rollmaster CS3130 -- Timing Set
Powerbond Harmonic Balancer
Custom ground hydraulic flat tappet Camshaft
Oil Pan -- Aluminum 10 Qt. -- Dennis Quella -- Pantera Performance
Edelbrock Water Pump -- Flow Kooler Thermostat
Best Tips for Breaking in a New Camshaft
http://www.horsepowermonster.com -- The
first few minutes of operation will determine the long-term survival of
your flat-tappet camshaft. More agressive lobe designs, stronger
valvesprings and changes to the additives in modern motor oils makes a
"wiped" cam lobe much more likely than in the days of classic muscle cars.
These are a few very important tips for properly breaking in your high
performance flat tappet camshaft.

1971 Mustang Mach 1 351 Cleveland Start
Cold start and run from the drivers seat of my 71 Mach 1 with a 351C. The
car is amatuer road raced and street legal. Still have a few holes to add
351 Cleveland in 55 Ford : Nasty Cam + BIG exhaust = MUSIC
Spotted this old '55 Ford, pretty straight, but obviously no minty garage
queen original or fancy restored show car. Hmmm... cop wheels & fat
traction bars? Tracked down owner, talked '55s for a bit (had a black Vic
way back when) & asked him if he'd mind popping the hood for pix.
Him "OK, but first whatcha think's in there?"
Me "Uh, 272, 292, maybe 312 Interceptor?"
Him "Nope, that was long ago. Put a built 390 in there, blew it up. Built a
427, blew that up too. This is a *real* motor here. 351 Cleveland, son."
Me "OK... Wouldn't wanna fire that up, would ya?"
Too bad I didn't get a clip when he barked the tires on the way out of the
lot, heh heh.
