torque specs for 351c

I have what appears to be a 351c. I just wonder now if its a 2v or a 4v. The 2v's were more common (92%) used in grocery getters while the 4v's were the high-perf mills. I just want to id it and take the heads off to clean it up before I try to sell it. It came in the back of a truck I bought. The seller said the extra engine came out of a wrecked car and it was fine except for the fact that it has been sitting outside. I thought if I could take the heads off, I could spray some WD-40 on the cylinder walls and turn the crankshaft a bit. I also want to take the head(s) off to measure the valve diameter. That would for sure tell me wheather its a 2v or a 4v. If its a 4v then I'll ask more for it. From what I've read the 351c-4v is not much on low-end torque and only really comes to life when you get to about 6 or 7 grand. The casting no. is D7TE A2B which doesn't tell me much. I have some pics I will try to post here.

this is not a cleveland. It is a either a 400 or 351 "M" It's a derivative of the Cleveland. Unfortunately, they only came in 2v configuration. It would be a great engine to rebuild with cleveland 4v heads.

These engines are as common as the sand. I would be surprised if you got 25 bucks. :/

btw all the people that say the 4v has no low end torque have never built a 4v cleveland. Pick the correct cam and intake and you are fine.

With a 4v cleveland, all it takes to make 500hp is a lumpy cam and a holley strip dominator and you will make 500hp around 6300 rpms....

No porting or other mods necessary!

Well, I don't mind giving it away - but - if there's a chance that I can make a hill-climber out of it, I'll keep it in case the 400 I've got in the truck now takes a dump. I'll have to find the numbers on the engine I've got in it now. BTW the tag on the valve cover of the extra engine says 351c 5.8L. It has some other stuff, I'll have to look again. I was told it was a 351c but you be the judge.

dead giveaway that it is an "M" smogger:

"D7" That stands for 1977; the year it was cast. No cleveland was made after 73...

After some research, the A2B seems like it stands for the 400 ci version....
