    So I was reading on another thread somebody said the low oil pressure after a rebuild could be due to something to do with galleys under the intake or something like that not being installed correctly so my question is if that is the case because I believe it is I'm not leaking any oil anywhere...

    Each of you have some valuable insight on how best to wake up and improve overall performance without sacrificing fuel economy with helping the 1978 Cobra 302 breathe and perform better. These are some options that I have been weighing, please let me know what you think. A.) Either 2.25" or...

    Hey everyone. New to the forum and working on classics. I've got a 66 mustang with a rebuilt 302 that I believe has a couple misfires or partial misfires. Block casting date is from 68. Build is mostly stock with a mild cam, headers, and a four-barrel carb with a dual plane intake. Behind the...

    Hello I’m new to the website so hopefully I’m posting in the right spot. I have a 302 I’m trying to rebuild to drop into my 64 f350. After cleaning it I found a hole in the block right where the distributor hits the cam gear. I’m not sure if it was caused by a blown distributor or what. My...

    Hello, hopefully I'm posting in the right place! Helping put together an engine for a friend but the passenger side intake manifold gasket doesn't want to fit properly on the head (over laps the holes, caused a huge air leak on the passenger side). The heads are GT40p with a carb'd 302...

    Good evening fellas, I'm new to the mustang scene. I recently purchased a 66 mustang that came with a 302 5.0 (from foxbody) and t5. The old demon carb is shot. I ordered a new one. One thing I'm worried is fuel pressure. Since the engine was originally an EFI, should be concerned on fuel...

    Has anyone built a 302 mexican block for boost? I keep finding all these mixed reviews about higher nickel content, thicker walls, 25% stronger, etc. But seems the higher nickel content is a myth, but thicker mains is for sure. Some findings of people getting in the mid 700's to the wheel...

    As a fellow vintage MUSTANG-ER, I wanted to share this conversation I had with a professional engine builder as I thought is was helpful for me and maybe would be for any of you out there. Feel free to chime in with your own ideas/comments or just take in the knowledge. Cheers! First my...

    You can't go wrong with a classic Mustang, especially a '72 with a stock 302. When it comes time for a teardown, though, it's the perfect time to add a bit more power to that stock engine. That's what forum user Papashaps wants to do — his '72 is in the shop for some body work and a new paint...

    I recently got the news that the 289 in my 68 coupe is dead and i need a new engine. I am thinking of going the route of a crate engine. In my old one i had a comp cam, performer intake, gt40p heads and a few other things so i am not looking at going back to a stock crate. I am looking to...

    I just created my account earlier today, so forgive me if I'm posting this in the wrong spot. I read some of the rules on tech vs talk and have determined that the following best goes here. I apologize if I am wrong. Note: I am mechanically inclined, but I have no history at all on engine...

    Anyone know how to adjust a clutch that is New install... never adjusted previously. I've just engine swapped and have a new 302 4 speed in. The trouble I'm having is knowing how to get the freeplay in the clutch pedal. Clutch pedal is smooth and has strong return spring. It either stays at...

    Greetings, lady and gentlemen of the forum. It's been a long time since my last discretion. I'm sad to say that I have been stricken by the Broken Bellhousing Blues. Don't worry. It's not contagious. And so far, I haven't been able to find a cure. My poor car. It's a 1971 Mustang with a C5...

    Hello All, I am working on getting a parts list together to perform the AOD swap. I know I am going to go with the Lokar TV cable but I have read so many different opinions and "facts" online that I have gotten myself confused. My questions are, Can I keep my stock Throttle rod and use that...

    I have recently acquired a 1968 302 engine originally off of a Galixy. It had a 2 barrel intake but i removed that to put a four barrel intake on. I am wondering what some cheap and easy things to do are, to add power to the engine. I would like to invest in a cam and heads but I'm not really...

    I have a '68 Mustang with a 302 out of a '73 in it. I've posted a couple of threads about the cooling/overheating of the car. It has never overheated but as I've said in my other posts, it gets a little too warm for comfort when driving in the city. I bought a 5 bladed fan from the salvage...

    So I've been trying to do research and I keep getting mixed answers wherever I look. I have '68 Mustang with '73 302 in it. I only drive it in the spring/summer. I live here in Illinois and it gets pretty warm here in the summer. The car has never overheated, but sometimes when I'm driving in...
