found a newer 92 351w block. Will this work? If not what years will?

Cranks will be different 80 vs. 92, so they wont interchange. Rear main seal area is different- wick lines are on the seal on the later blocks, and on the crank on the earlier style. Other than that, all parts will swap. Just be sure to use both the block and crank from the '92 and you'll be good.
