Re: 302 block's

tha basic block is the same, as far as i no
i put a new block into a hotrod and used a carby setup and the old heads it all seemed to fit ok runs sweet ,so guess it would work the other way .
front timing cover is different etc
rear main oil seal is different on the older ones its a rope seal ( will leak ) and is rubber on the new blocks.

I just wanna go fast with V8 GRUNT!

thx for that mate i'ts a lot off money to do everything at once which is ideal but unfortunatly i hav'nt the money and this way i can prep the old block bit by bit while my xr is still on the road thx anyway for that.

Re: 302 block's

The issue would be that Roller lifters WON'T fit..The lifter bore are longer in efi/ roller blocks due to roller lifters being longer...But other than ADR everthing else is the same ..Except the early block maybe stronger??

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Re: 302 block's

Were Ford still using Windsor motors in 1978? I thought they were Cleaveland then.
