Only a 1981 and earlier 302 will work. Newer ones than that have a different external balance. Old is 28 oz-in, newer is 50 oz-in. In other words, the balance weights on the harmonic balancer and flywheel are different sizes. You'll need a 1981 or older engine.I am rebuilding a 67 mustang.
My motor is gone no compression and has blow by am looking to replace it or rebuild it.
But I was looking to purchase a used 302 so my question is what year 302 will fit it
If you want to use a later roller cam 5.0 aka 302 this will solve one issue as it will accept your early pulleys and water pump and retain the 50 ounce balance Professional Products Small Block Ford Harmonic Balancers If you have a C4 or Stick shift contact Summit for a 50 ounce flexplate or flywheel to match your stocker another option is to use a 351W also known as a 5.8 they retained the same 28 ounce balance as your current 289 uses so just swap over your existing parts to it.Thanks might just have to rebuild my own
