If I recall correctly, the only 351 with the same bolt pattern as the 302 was the windsor 351 (351W). The 351 C was a Cleveland made engine, and the 351M (for "modified") had the same bolt pattern as the 351C- different from the 302. A quick check is the top two bolts on the bell housing- the 302's top bolts are pretty close together- about 3 or 4 inches apart. Most engines space the top two bolts further apart. I never was a ford fanatic, so don't take my memory for gospel. You planning on running a carbureted '74 engine in your truck?

    I went and looked at the motor, It will not work. The Starter is different as well as the distributor. they are not interchangable. The newer one are if i can find one around a 89 or so.

SOURCE: Replace Ford Explorer 1995 Starter

There are just 2 bolts that hold the starter to the engine, then there is the battery cable and the starter solenoid leads, take note of where the wires go before removing them. Lets talk safety, use jack stands to hold the car up, disconnect the battery so you don't burn yourself or start an electrical fire.

SOURCE: Do I need to pull the engine out of my 1989 Ford

Not absolutly positive for that car. However nothing i have ever worked on or talked to someone who worked on any car has to pull the motor to remove the oil pan. There should be enough room for it to come out. You will have to have extensions for you ratchet, and more than likely a swivel. If it is rear wheel drive you may have to drop the pan down to the cross brace then take the bolts out of the oil pick up tube through the gap in the oilpan. Two bolts, maybe one? But then it will fall into the pan and then will fit out. I hope this helps.
And yes you have to torque the bolts. First snug them up and then criss cross one front corner then the opposite back corner etc... Not sure what torque is, like 24ft lbs? Ask the autopart store you buy the gasket at and they will tell you.

How do i replace the transmission fluid & filter on a 2010 Ford fusion SE

Hi,first of all check that the fluid is at the right level,then when cars on axle stands,get a bowl and undo auto sump bolt and drain,replace filter put back sump tighten bolts fully home dont over tighten,then mesure the fluid that came out,and put the same amount back in,then worm up to running temp and check the level as you might need to top up abit,
I also would put a additive in this is a great additive that I myself use read the instructions and make up your own mind(its called XADO)it will give your transmition a new life.
well all the best.

Steering knuckle will not go back into control arm need help 2002 ford taurus

Ford engineers should be shot for this. You can buy the special tool shown below. Use it to lift the strut and knuckle up enough to get the ball joint on. Or, loosen the engine cradle bolts on that side and drop the cradle down enough to bet the ball joint stud into the control arm. Ford engineers should be shot for this bad design.

Siezed exhaust manifold bolts

Get brake fluid or transmission fuild on them. Let it set for up to an hour...try to break them loose...put more fluid on it...tighten them wait about ten minutes...break them loose....this works...just don't start the vehicle and cook off the fluid.

Broken wheel bolt

These bolts are usually pressed into the hub. If you remove the hub you can usually knock out the broken bolt and buy a new one at an auto parts store and insert it into the hub, When you put the hub back on the wheel and tighten the lug nuts that will pull the new bolt up tight into the hub.

This is usually caused by someone using an powered wrench tightening the wheel nuts too tight. I had this happen to me once and ever since I have insisted that anyone using an air wrench do not use one to tighten the lug nuts. They must use a torque wrench and tighten to manufactures spec.

Good luck and I hope this helps
