Hi-

I was wondering if anyone here has a clevor? If so you you guys recommend me converting to that set up of just stick with building up a regular windsor.

Also, I have heard that Clevors run very hot is this true? Lastly, how much power could I get out of a Clevor? Thanks in advance

I like my Clevelands, but it's not worth it to make a Clevor with all the great cylinder heads around these days available for small block Fords and Windsors. Maybe if you want to make a Boss look-alike.

I agree with Steve. I really love my clevelands, but with the current selection of aftermarket heads for the windsor, I see no real reason to build a clevor. Aftermarket heads outflow the 2v cleveland, intakes to fit the aftermarket heads are easy to obtain, and not to mention no special pistons are required. Plus, getting a good camshaft would be easier without running into having to buy different rocker arms. A camshaft that is designed for the windsor and would normally clear everything easily with the stock 1.6 rocker arms, suddenly becomes a tight fit with the clevelands stock 1.73 rockers.

Like the above guys, I like Clevelands.
But unless you already have a set of well prepped heads (screw in studs, good valves,springs, etc..)headers, roller rockers etc...
I would not do a Clevor.
If youy already have a large pile of Cleveland parts, then think about it....
