I just bought this beauty for a restoration project, motor is toast but couldnt find a data plate on the block, I've heard the motor could be a 302 or a 351w......any ideas on the correct engine?

That's a beauty for sure. Look on the stern / transom and grab the last 2 digits from the HIN #. That'll give you (us) the year. More than likely...almost positively, it's a 351. You can look here on NADA and see that all of the 1992 inboards have the same HP and they were all 351s. https://www.nadaguides.com/Boats/1992/Centurion-Boats  

I'm going to bump the Falcon Thread in this forum. You can ask questions in that thread of other owners with similar type boats as yours.  Welcome!  Post more pics!!!!

Sorry, I just noticed the 1990 model year tag. Definitely a 351.  probably the only powertrain available that year.

Will you have to re-power, or just rebuild the engine?  My Falcon is a 1993, and it came with a Ford/Indmar 351...it too was toast. My cousin's 1996 Falcon donated it's low hour Mercruiser GM 350. So I now have a GM engine sitting where a Ford once was. It can be done pretty easily.  

How's the floor and stringers in your project boat?

Thank you guys for the info, its much appreciated!  I tried to upload a picture of the motor but the file is to big even after I cropped it.  A company I am emailing with looked at the pictures and said he thinks its a 302 lol.  I need to get back to the shop and get the casting number as well as measure the intake manifold bolt to bolt as they are obviously different.  I have not pulled up the floor yet but everything seems great but we will see when I start ripping Into it!

      Sad this forum is not as busy as it used to be since so many jumped to the Facebook groups .. the FB groups are not nearly as easy to search, and the threads do not get organized well ...
