At the risk of being targetted for a jacket (again), I must point out that you can't have a '69 with a 5-bolt bell housing. A '69 block would be a 302, which were all 6-bolt.

Sorry!

Its a 351. This sounds very familiar. We've had this conversation before haven't we?

Sorry James - don't remember the conversation! I've never heard of a 5-bolt 351, either W or C.
260s, then 289s were 5-bolt up to late '64(ish), then all SBFs used the same 6-bolt pattern. You don't happen to know the date code on your motor, do you?

Now with pictures added.

Ever polished up a car to sell it, then thought, why am I selling this?

Adam, I think you are a bit out of date. The original posting was 2010.
