Re: Engine Help Needed
302 have different crankshaft balances, somewhere in the 79 to 81 years balance changed from 28oz to 52oz. This means the crank, balancer, and flywheel or flexplate need to be matched sets of either 28 or 52oz. All 5.0 liters are 52oz. All ford v8 except 5.0liter and 351w or 5.8 liter engines are early ford firing order. Personally I like World Products cylinder heads, built very well, flow good and are about the same price as upgrading old Ford heads with larger valves and porting.
