I have just filled my cleveland and was wondering if I have gone too far It is filled to the water pump holes at the front but goes a little higher at the rear. It is up to the bottom of the head bolt bosses. Water can still circulate around the cylinders at the top..but not as much as it would if the whole lot was level with the water pump holes. Will this cause overheating problems??

I hope not, the block I just filled yesterday is the same way. Except mine is filled about a half to three quarter of an inch higher than the water pump holes in the front.

How does one go about putting this stuff in? I have not installed my new 351C motor yet but it is assembled without the intake. Would I need to pull my heads back off to do this or is it too late? what do you use to put it in with?

Yes your heads would have to come back off. It gets poured into the block thru the large coolant holes in the deck surface. I use a small funnel to pour it thru.
