Leon,

Pic #2 is a SBF of some kind - either a 302 or 351W, and not a Cleveland. Notice the valve cover bolt in the center of the top row of the cover - Clevelands have a total of eight with two on the top row (compare with pic #1 for the upper row clearance dents on the Cleveland). That and the water pump/timing cover.

Thanks Milo - I should have looked closer - I assumed it was a Cleveland because it was in an XY Falcon

Interesting set up on the coil packs...I wonder why he has them running through what looks like heat sinked resistors in the back? (think I would have hidden them) Would like to see what he's using for controller on it....nice looking bunch of engines though!! It's like car porn huh! ;>) I feel so -- dirty!

That shroud plate/cover on the last one looks stock - but I've never seen one quite like that? (no warning sticker though)

My guess would be stock as the same shroud/guard is also in the 1st pic on an obviously different car. Either that or a popular (resto)mod piece down under...LOL!..
Love them all and would take any one.......or two or all.....
Thanks
Chuck

That reminds me... Does anybody know what cars/years/engines had a vacuum-operated auxiliary air intake 'door' on the non-snout side of the aircleaner base?

It is the top radiator mount for an XW / XY Falcon GT

That's because the bottom-feeding lawyers haven't quite taken over Australia :uhoh: - yet! :evil:

Aussies know better than to blame someone else for putting one's digits into a fan! :spit:
