Hello.:) :welcome: That's the flywheel from a 300 cid straight six. I don't think that it will work on a 351. Hope that helps.:)

Hi again.:) Not that I am aware of. I do it with books. Ford part numbers and casting numbers work a little differently than chevy numbers. They go decade, year in that decade, original application line, general part type, as in, C6AE would be the 60s, the 7th year ( the year 0 is the first), A means Galaxie and E means that it's an engine part, sort of. 6380 is the general group number which means that it's a flywheel. All flywheels have that number. The 'C' means that it's the third design modification of that part. What I do is figure out the original application of the part and drag out the appropriate one of these and find it in there. It's a lot more fun that way. Where's the challenge in just going to some website? Anybody can do that.:gringreen
