The other Ford 351 is known as the Cleveland, which is named after the assembly plant location. This engine is completely different than the 351 Windsor and shares no interchangeable parts. The engine features a canted valve arrangement, proven to aid breathing and power production. This bare block shows the unusual timing chain housing, which is an integral part of the engine block casting. This is perhaps the most prominent visual feature that distinguishes a Cleveland block from a Windsor. A simple steel plate covers the timing set. Another way to distinguish a 351 Cleveland block from a 351 Windsor is a vertical water outlet integral to the block, which is quite different than the Windsor arrangement.
