A .060" bored 351W is an "always run hot" engine. Unless the block is one of those expensive SVO block.

its a 362. i have one in my bronco....supercharged by vortech.....runs about 190 all the time...i do have a cooler on it too for the tranny it helps keep it cooler the running it in the same as the eng.....just a thought. unless you have a 5sd then i would diffently have the wall thickness checked...

I Have a micrometor I will measure them out and compare the 2 but like stang pie was telling you when I got the block it was .30 over and it looked as it was never bored campared to my other 351 thats was already .30over there was twice as much wall thickness and now that it is bored .60 compared to my other block it has almost identical wall thickness,this block is a 74 model my other block was a 69 model i'll have to do some research just to be safe:)
