    Posted: 08-December-2020 at 8:40AM
I'm looking to get an engine tag from Marti Works that's correct for 351W 4V (either 1974 or 1975) for my Starsky & Hutch Torino. The 1st and 2nd pics you see is Lee Lundberg's 1971 351C, he's confirmed the correct location for the Cleveland (for the year 1971) is under the ignition coil bracket. Can anyone confirm that the location of this tag would be the same for a 74-75 351W?

Also, see later pics of my ignition coil bracket and accelerator cable bracket. Both of these brackets were repurposed from my old 400 engine. Can anyone confirm that these brackets would still be correct for a 74-75 351W? And can also confirm that the locations on the Windsor are correct? For now they look to work fine, but I'm striving to make it as factory-correct as possible.

If these brackets aren't correct, does someone have the correct brackets for 351W available and I can purchase them off of you?

Thanks!

 and i mounted the lokar kickdown tab straight below it using the factory cable screw and only drilled the smaller hole below it to secure it correctlyBig smile now im not sure how that will fit with the edlebrock carb (they are sideways making them wide)

John do you have a spare bracket? If so, can you test fit it to my engine and let me know if it will work with my Edelbrock carb?

Also can you show me a pic of your coil bracket, assuming it's in stock location?

Ah well that doesn't help lol 😂 I'll check eBay for the bracket and let you know if I can find one for you. Also Joe will be sending me pics of the stock location of his coil.
