The 302 and 351w are often times thought to be the "same" block. The fact is they are not. The 351w has a deck height about 1 inch taller than the 302/289. Another "quick" way to tell is the 302 intake manifold is aproximatlly 7 1/2 inches wide, while the 351w is 9 1/2 wide. The clevland looks a lot like a 460 if it is a fairly late model and has factory valve covers. The "M" moter can usually be identified by numerous oil leaks and sludge and grease everywhere. Hope this helps you out. Johnny

i agree,measure the intake for 302/351w. the 351c and m`s are easy to verify,the thermostat housing is seperate from the intake and points up.also the valve covers have 6 bolts on 302/351w 8 bolts on 351c/m.
firing order for 302 is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8
order for 351w is 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8firing order for 82 and later 302ho is same as 351w
351w is 3 inches taller than 302 and 2" wider
i hope this is what u needed. fords rock!!!!
