I`m almost ready to put my 302 in my 66.I bought a 302 50 oz. balancer but I have found out that the pullies will not line up.Does anyone know of a place where I can get a pully from, that will line up with using my 302 balancer? Thanks,Tony

National Parts Depot makes a three bolt conversion harmonic. Looks like the original but is 50 oz-in. This harmonic is fine for street use but is not SFI certified.
About $165.

Hi Tony,
I'm not sure if this is your case, but on my new 5.0, with a stock 5.0 balancer the timing marks and pointer will end up on the right (wrong) passenger side of the engine DIRECTLY UNDER THE LOWER RADIATOR HOSE/ WATER PUMP FITTING!! If you plan to change your radiator and water pump outlet to the driver side, no big deal. You can get a 4-bolt, 2-groove, V-belt pulley from Central Coast Mustang that will bolt right up to the late model balancer, for about the same price as the balacer from NPD. If you want to keep the original orientation, get a balancer from NPD, but make sure that it is one that will put #1 TDC on the left (correct) driver side of the engine. Good luck, and I hope you enjoy your new engine.

Gene, I was trying to use a set up where I didn`t need to buy a new radiator.If I buy that pully from Central Coast I can keep the old set up using the 302 balancer?The balancer from NPD cost around 179.00 That pully from Central cost 179.00? That seems high.Thanks,Tony

Tony,
The other way around. Depending on the year, if you keep the balancer you have, you won't be able to read your timing marks. If you want to keep your radiator/waterpump setup you need to get the balancer from NPD. As for the pulley from Central Coast, the reason it's a little pricey is that it is a really nice custom made piece made from aluminum billet. By the way, what year is your 302, and is the front timing cover for a reverse rotation, serpentine belt water pump? These are important considerations if you haven't thought of them before. If it is for the reverse pump, you will need to use the front cover from your 289 or get an early style. These covers are easy to find and still available new from FORD.

Gene, My motor is a 86 roller shortblock so I don`t have any front stuff. I have a extra 66-289 timing cover and I `m going to buy a 289 water pump.So I guess I will buy the balancer from NPD. Then everything should be all right? Thanks,Tony

Tony,
That's the ticket. Don't forget to order a timing pointer at the same time.
