Hello, sorry for the delay.
The 351 can be installed but it does require quite a bit of modifications due to the length of the engine and it hitting the firewall. However anything is possible with the right tools like a cutting torch and welder. I looked online for you and found some information that will help explain what all is involved with this conversion, i hope it helps you to get a better picture of what all is involved.
copy the link below to a new window to read it. It talks about the Ford windsor but applies to the cleveland as well.
