Nice power man. So im guessing its a 393 or 395? Any pictures of it or your dyno sheet? What is it going in?

383. for some reason This site does not work for me to post pictures, I tried, and I do not want to set up a account with a third party. I posted Dyno runs and pictures on the 351c facebook page. I just got the Facebook page to copy.

It sounds good and it looks like you've got LOTS of oil pressure...

Ya ever since photobucket went to crap, posting pictures is a chore now. I have a Flickr account but they suck. When I post a picture it lets everyone see what all my pictures are. They wont let me turn that off so I dont post many pics anymore.

Cool video man. Ya you can hear your heads waking up at 6300rpm.

Yep, after the Dyno I cut one coil out of the pressure spring, Also I found that the press in plug was pressed in a bit deeper than the cotter key. I reduced the pressure by twenty pounds.

I too have had super high pressure with a 100% stock out of the box Melling pump. It was on a 385 inch Cleveland that I also had bushed the lifter bores and thus plugged the leaks. If I remember right the pressure hot at idle was about 75lbs and revved up a little bit it would go to 95lbs. It bothered me a little bit but it has never caused any problems for the customer.

It seems like the Melling pump for the 351 Windsor gives less pressure than the one for the Cleveland which in my experience always gives really high pressure in an engine built with reasonable clearances and no restrictions.

Good lookin piece. Good performer too. Even strong with a factory intake.

When I do Clevelands with bushed lifter bores, I use standard volume pumps. Feeds them well up to 8500 rpm, usually makes like 60-65 psi at the rear of the engine. Bearings look like new.

I've never used a high volume pump in a Cleveland I can't imagine when that would ever be necessary. The 351 Windsor and Cleveland use the same "guts" in the pump as what's used in the 429/460. Its a big pump.

I think it might be cool to make a low volume kit for this sort of application when the leaks are plugged.

I agree with you all. I just wanted to note, The oil pump is a Standard volume pump # M-84A Blueprinted by Precision . I would never use a I high volume pump is the application, Stock oil pan. When I primed it on the stand it had 85 psi with 30W Break in oil. All my engines prime in the 60psi range, I new this was not a good thing. So I called Precision Three times, He kept telling me the oil is thick and it will come down when hot, I new better, but it was his pump so I would give it a try. I greased the oil pan gasket Knowing I would be reducing the pressure.
