have an opportunity to get a 302 and auto trans out of a 92 Lincoln town car, he wants 200 dollars says they ran well til an accident. i am just thinking of something to keep the car running til i get the 427 stroker built, would like to adapt fuel injection but he said the harness is cut, it does come with full pulleys and accessories.
i guess i can just pull the 351 and t5 out get a carbed 302 intake and auto trans mount and it should be a pretty easy swap!
from what i figure i will need
intake, distributor, exhaust modded, trans mount \
youll need to decide if you are going to run the serp dress or convert to V-belt. If you go V-belt youll need a different front cover and change over the dipstick holes from rear-sump to front-sump pan.
The serp and old-style water pumps rotate in opposite directions, also.
It's not a performance engine by any measure so is probably still a flat tappet with a very small cam. It is roller ready, though. Just swap in a new cam, change the heads and intake, get the dogbones and spider and roller lifters and you will be good to go on that score. Depending where the dipstick is (I think that year was still the side of the engine), you will need to plug the old hole and use a vintage front timing cover. You will also need exhaust manifolds or headers, a steel geared dizzy (if you go with a roller cam) and a different oil pan.
