If you need to find dress-up parts for 302s it's one of the more common swaps in Australia!
Love the rpu. Did you weld up your valvecovers or someone else? Always loved those t-bird covers. And what waterpump are you running?
Here is mine. Its an 1985 5.0 H.O. motor that I'm using just for moch up. I have a 67 302 that will call the frame rails home. I have a long way to go yet, but it will leave my shop with a 302 and a T-5
Looks like most of you are running cross steer. Probably going to try side steer for the look. Any experience on that?
running a spal electric pusher fan in front of the radiator due to having no room behind , and running the sno white waterpump conversion which saves about 2 and a half inches of room , it utilizes an opel gt waterpump and adapter to go to the timing cover , runs good and cool fan hardly ever kicks on , just been too busy with work to have any free time to make more adapters for the valve covers
no welding they are stock fe valve covers , i machined thin adapters that go under them to bolt to the heads
"side steer" or traditional steering works fine when properly set up, but cross steer is nice
The one in my avatar has a 289 that I installed back in 1970.
This one is not mine but always one of my favorites - I'm a Weber whore....
what does it take to use these valve covers?
^This car is tits man-I think being a machinist he made his own adapters!^
I freaking LOVE this one!!
Look at the newest Rod & Custom
Here ya go
306, Edelbrock heads and cam, 2x4s 1200 CFM.
302 in my 29 Pickup
my project 29 with a 302
30 year old build when sbf weren't popular but i didn't care. I use em in everything. Now it's popular
I put a 289 in my first Model A pickup,,being 6'4" and how far back the engine sets back into the cab,,it wasn't to be. HRP
Lots of inspiration here!!!
