    Hey guys and girls, I'm sorry for asking a question that's most likely been asked before, but I was hoping to get some opinions on engine options. I currently have a 289 in my 68 convertible (302 block as it was late year production). It's been running great, but like most, I am hoping to get...

    Hello. When I pulled the rad hose off the thermostat housing, it was pretty rusty inside the housing so I figured it would be good to change it. It all looks simple except getting to the lower bolt that is kind of tucked behind the water pump. Do you have to remove the water pump to change the...

    I have a 1965 mustang that I bought. The motor was rebuilt but not finished. It has a 302 in it with an Erson TQ50H (E212223) cam. I looked on their website and this cam shows its for a 351/302 how do I know which firing order it is. Is it the 351 or the 302 firing order?

    Hi, I have a 1969 ford mustang with a 302. I am planning to upgrade to an electric fan for better cooling at idle. Should I just put in a bigger alternator, or should I get a secondary alternator with an auxiliary battery?

    Hi, I have have posted a video of my 1969 Ford mustang with a 302. There is a ticking noise coming from the rear end of the engine on the drivers side. Does this sound like a lifter tick or could it be something else? I am fairly new to cars, if it is a lifter can I still drive the car? Please...

    Hi, I have attached a video of my 302 running in a 1969 ford mustang. Does this sound like it normally should? I am new to the car world and I am learning as I go along. Theres kind of a "knocking" sound that I can hear. Can someone please let me know. Thank you.

    I've owned three mustangs in my life, a 65 coupe when I was in high school, another 65 coupe after college, and a 69 Mach 1 project car about 15 years ago. I'm in the market for another classic mustang, but the prices sure have gone up. Haha! Anywho, I'm looking at '69 fastback 302 with a 3...

    About 6 months ago my daily driver stopped starting. I checked the timing chain and found that everything looked good and gears were installed dot-to-dot. I replaced the gears and chain anyways and ensured they remained dot-to-dot. Got the engine back together and checked compression, ~130 PSI...

    Has anyone else has this issue with their motor mounts. The driver side went in fine but the passenger side won’t line up correctly. Am I doing something wrong? Would it be bad if I drilled it out to fit?

    So I’ve recently gotten into learning about classic mustangs, as it’s my dream to restore one, and I want to get clarification on an engine I see for sale. As the title suggests, it’s a 302 F-code. I did some searching and found that that specific engine is what was put into the econolines in...
