i can't match up any of the numbers. Maybe his eye sight is not so good?
74R, some of the 'its junk' and 'pass on this one' opinions are absurd. A 302 isn't a bad choice just because it came from the early 70s or because it has 351W heads on it. Check the firing order if you purchase it, if it has 13726548, it was probably a marine engine. The marine engines did NOT have the retarded timing chains that the early to mid 70s cars did. It could also be someones built up 302 from a long ago project. The GTP Explorer head so many are fascinated with has the same intake ports and valves as the early 351W, it is just as capable of making power. Think of it as a 302 that ALREADY HAS upgraded heads.

GypsyR, same thing I said above. The quality of work isnt there on the outside of the engine, its not showing it on the removed valve cover, what makes anyone think this worth more than scrap value? He says it needs a rear main(old age?), if that needs to be replaced, no harm in having him remove the oil pan and while you are there for that money, pull a head too.I have no problem at all with the engine setup. I'd throw a fun cam and some 351 heads on a 302 in a skinny minute. But that's ME doing stuff to an engine that I already know the condition of. I'm sorry, I just can't put that much faith in some random person with an extra engine lying around for no really good reason. I've seen too many spray paint rebuilds by people with no conception of mechanical tolerances. If it is priced as "rebuildable" and will be completely torn down for at least a thorough inspection then never mind I guess.
