    You mean this one?:

    Its not a 302; its most likely a 351M or a 400. Different engine entirely. The casting number is for a 1971 engine so that would kind of imply that its a 400, since the 351M didn't come along till the 351C was discontinued in 1974.
    Either way, the're not the most sought after hot-rod lump. Heavy and low compression smog engines. Lucky if it makes 200hp.
    They can be built to make power though. The heads have good size ports and most 351 cleveland hop-up bits work.
    The rear bellhousing bolt pattern is the same as 429/460, rather than the 302/351C/351W pattern

    Briz The 351c was built in australia from 1974 until the late eighties. that where most of the best heads come from for this engine.

    Yeah I know. Those aussie heads are the only ones that combine quench chambers with reasonably sized ports.
    But I was concentrating on US production there as the engine in question was clearly not an OZ lump.
