Just in time! I've got a 289 in mine, but have the 351W block at the machine shop, and the 383 stroker kit ready to be assembled. Please keep this string updated on your progress with photos and write-ups.

I like the way your engine mount/crossmember turned out, it looks strong. Maybe you can call it an "H" member?

I'm wiring up the harness. the z alternator has a big r/w wire for BAT. Another Black to E and two other small wiers plugged into F. What are the two other small wires for?
Do they get tied together on the new F

Are you referring to the two wires that are in the 'T' style connector? I think they just run to the voltage regulator which in turn go to the voltage gauge to turn on the 'charging' led. I didn't hook them up in my 78, and everything still works fine. (edit: Perhaps the yellow wire goes to the 'brake warning lamp check relay'. This should light when the engine is not turning over, but the ignition is on. This info per the 77 FSM.)

so, the 351 block will stick though the hood?  planning a 5.0 roller out right now, but would love to do a 408 stroker.  the 351 is just such a stronger block
