I have a few questions, hopefully some one can help. Im swaping the 302 block (originally from a 72') from my 66 mustang with a block from an 87 5.0 to make it a roller motor. I bought the water pump for the 87 because i was told that the one from the 72 block will not work, does the difference in the water pumps make a difference with the original pulleys from the 72? Or can i still use the pulleys from the 72? I was also told that i have to use the timing cover from the 72 and get a 50 oz. harmonic balancer and a 157 tooth 50 oz. flex plate that match the 87 block. I guess what I am saying is, will everything from my 72 block bolt on to the 87 block? what modifications do i have to do? I appreciate every ones help.
