The cam should fit the block, BUT the roller lifters are too tall for the bores on the earlier blocks. It requires a special smaller base circle cam to use a roller in a early block.

OK, a roller cam will fit in my 74 block, but need different roller lifters right, the stock roller lifters wont fit. If I use a retro-fit roller cam, I can use the stock roller lifters.

Your other option is to go with Crane retrofit roller lifters (about $600 Cdn - ouch!). You can use any 5.0/302 roller cam with them. That will also mean you need shorter pushrods since the lifters themselves are a little taller.

Thanx all, but I decided to sell my roller stuff. $500. Can. for a roller cam is out of the question right now.
