Here's the plan...
I bought a used 306 fully balanced and blueprinted w/ported/polished Windsor JRs. Everything comes with it except for the following: distributor, oil pan, valve covers, and timing chain cover.
It is currently setup with a serpentine belt and is setup for a manual transmission car. It came out of a '95 mustang (not original motor) with fuel injection.
This is my CURRENT configuration: 289, 2bbl, C4 automatic, 157tooth/28oz flywheel. The bellhousing on it right now bolts onto the front pump (not case) if that has any relevence. Are there bellhousings for 164tooth and 157tooth flexplates? Anyhow, I also have a bellhousing that came from a 91 mustang that originally came with the dynamic C4 (used).
Ok, now that you know my current configuration, please help me figure out which parts can go together.
When I get the 306, I want to bolt on a new flexplate for C4 use. Specifically, what flexplate do I need? The harmonic balancer that the 306 has is a 50oz. If I get the 50oz flexplate, does it need to get further balanced to keep the engine in complete balance??? I also assume that I need to get a 164tooth flexplate?? Or do they have a 157t/50oz models?? I'm not exactly sure what the 157tooth or the 164tooth is for?? Please explain...
I also need a new distributor, timing chain cover, oil pan, and valve covers. The block is a DSS racing block. Can a stock "front sump" oil pan bolt right on? I also hear that the rear main seals are now a one piece on this "newer" 302 block?
Are these "newer" 302s a whole lot different from the "older" 302s?
Please help!! Let me know if you need more information from me. I will be checking this thread every 30 mins or less!!
