I am trying to identify the size of this engine, (ie 302 or 351W) . The numbers are as follows: D9AE 6015 ED18. All my guesses is tha it's a 351W The problem I am having is that the plug wires hook up like a 302. Can anyone help with these numbers?

Is there a one inch space between the timing cover and the cylinder deck? Then it's a 351W. A 302 would be flush.

You can have the 302 cam in a 351 and the firing order will be that of a 302..

How I know...LOL..
When rebuilding the 351 in the 69 MACH we had the "Young Fellows" at Thompson Ford put the Muscle Parts Cam in and they set the plug wires to the 351 order..back fired like Crazy till this old seasoned mechanic walked by and told them to change it

Steve are you talking the 1 inch on the timing cover, where the water passages go thru to the cylinder deck? If your answer is yes then mine is also yes. The problem that I am having is the spark plug configuration only works... 1.3.4.8.6.5.7. Whats up with that?

The other problem I have is I purchased a set of JLB Shorty headers and there is a 1/2" x 1 5/8" rectangle protrusion from the block, a couple of inches below, in the path of my #5 tube that does not allow me to tighten the Headers down properly
