Nice car. I think you have a solid plan. It may be a good idea to upgrade to LED headlights with a relay. You could also upgrade all lighting fixtures to LED as well. They are much brighter and a much lesser load on an aging stock wiring harness. For your 302, an electric fan may be ideal. I think you should skip there drums and go for discs up front. Best of luck with the restoration and upgrades.

Slow going, Im having a lot of difficulty finding a 5 lug rear end. Im converting to 5 lugs before I do anything else. One of my goals is to keep the car roadworthy as much as possible.

Thanks, has the 289 been bored?

Ive got a few closer options.

I have a 3.27 8.8 out of a 97 Cobra, and I can buy a 5.0 HO or GT40 or GT40P from MPS. Im also looking at a complete 2 door 302 Granada, but I hate to cut up a nice car for parts.

The Cobra rear end has shot carrier bearings.

Ive got to decide if I want to have those replaced or head to the pull-a-part for another rear end.

I wanted to head up this weekend but its been cold and raining. I need Ranger axles and brakes.

A lot of people dislike the GT40P, I love them. Lets face it, it's been a long time since a pushrod 5.0 came in a Ford and the last 4 years of pushrod 5.0 was the GT40P. The bad is the different plug angle. The good is the P heads are very, very good. Ford spent a lot of time and money bringing them into the 21st century. Very efficient combustion chamber and ports. I'm using off the shelf MAC long tubes and MAC makes a complete 2.5" exhaust system that is nicely made and bolt right up. I'm about to install their exhaust shortly. I run the cheapest 87 and no matter how hard I try or lug it I can't make it rattle with it's 9.5:1 compression. With nothing more then a 91 Mustang 5.0 cam, it runs great. here's my swap

Theres a Mustang recycler near here that only deals in late model. He usually has Fox, SN95, GT40 and GT40P engines for sale.

My wife wants me to buy a Summit crate engine, Im leaning toward the GT40.

Crappy that GM still sells new Goodwrench crate engines and Ford has left us to our own devices.

I drove 80 miles one way to buy a 2.80 8in out of a 69 Mustang.

I have a shop set up to rebuild it and add limited slip.

I get there and the 8in is a 7 1/4in buried in the mud.

Needless to say, that JY does not want to see me ever again.

Im no closer...
