I have a good question for you aussie fans. Does the aussie built 302' cleveland have the smaller diameter bearings like the American built 351c's?(=high revs) How about the forged crank?:drool:

Aussie 302

The Aussie 302 Cleveland has the same rod and main sizes as does the 351. Essentially the only difference is in the stroke of the crank.

Either the rods are longer or the compression height on the pistons is different, thats about it.

If someone wanted to build a long rod 351C, that'd be an easy way to do it, it seems; some custom pistons (hell, there might be an off the shelf piston out there for it), the Aussie rods (I've seen 'em cheap on EBay) and a factory crank. Huh, that'd be an interesting motor to see run, really see how rod length effects performance.
