Can anyone identify this 351W?
Numbered XE, odd grooves on block face,
Appears to have siamesed liners, .+030",
4 bolt mains
Piston valve cut outs appear to be for Cleveland heads (Boss 302?)
Rare? or just junk?

Interesting for sure. Not a Cleveland block. It has the Windsor China walls. Curious about that groove along the top of the deck surface and some water holes appear to be filled. Do you have the heads that were on it? What do they look like? That trans mount flange looks weird too. Never seen that on any SBF.

Its an Australian thing, just google 93532 xe block
Its a Windsor, not an Australian Cleveland
Are you positive it's a windsor block? As above, the XE was a special version of the cleveland block cast here in australia. Referred to as the pillow block or nascar block. There was a special run of them cast in the early 80's for Nascar use.

Ya I got the casting mixed up. It's a 9.2 deck windsor from the mid 60s. Bunch of weird stuff. Y312 or Chrysler mains, 302 distributor with a 351w pump, double ended pump shaft etc.. xe meaning experimental engineering

the 9.250" deck height 351w xe 93532 block is the 1966-67 Grandfather to the later 1969 prodution 351w block which was also originaly suppose to have a 2.750" crank with 4 bolt mains before it got changed again at production time.

these 9.250" deck 351 Windsor type xe blocks along with 3.50"/3.75" stroke steel xh cranks with 2.750" mains (making 352ci, 372ci, 377ci, 393ci) were originaly designed/made for le-mans & can-am road racing in aluminum and cast iron making well over 500HP, later drag racers like Dyno Don and others also got/used these blocks in pro/stock and for 400"+ci match race engines...
