I took a 4.9L out of my bronco and put in a 5.0L, same Transmission and everything. I just needed new motor mounts and clutch linkage, and I was good to go. I believe the 351w has the same bolt pattern on the bellhousing.

depends where u get it and the condition of it... and what u want to do to it before u install it... still different... efi vs carb vs tbi

personally i would not install any engine before doing all gaskets and checking bearing clearances....heads ect....

so u can go from there...
