  1. Questions about my new heads.

    Mod and Custom Forum
    Hi everyone, I bought a pair of flotek heads (Small Block Ford 180cc/58cc | FloTek - Evansville, IN) and I wanted to build a 302 with a good cam that can rev to 7000 RPM.

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Hello all. I am currently looking at a 1970 Mustang Fastback that originally came with a 302 (not boss) and thinking about buying it. However, the wiring harness is completely missing as is the engine and dash. How hard is it to rewire one of these? Also I’m open to any suggestions of which...
  3. 1978 Ford Granada a Good V8 Donor?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I just came across a really good 1978 Granada with a 302. Are all the parts basically bolt-on from this to a 1965 Mustang? My research is leaning yes, but I'm having a hard time finding specifics. Trying to figure out what I would need to buy on my own. At this point I think it might be drive...

  7. 302 Engine Problem

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I put a 1987 Ford 302 truck (block) engine into my 1967 Mustang coupe. It's bored .30 over, roller 1.6 rockers, B303 cam, etc. I'm using the 1987 H.O 302 firing order. The problem is that I cant get the engine to run completely correct. I just replaced the spark plugs, but i'm only firing on 4...
