I have found a couple of 5 liters for sale for a couple hundred and was wondering if you guy's might help me a min. Will a 88 five oh hook up to c-4( change flywheel)and can I use my carb, intake and hedders ok?
The reason for doing all this is I am trying to sell our house and if I do I plan on building my older 302 or this 5oh if I buy it, but UNTIL I sell the house, no extra motor money. Anything to watch about 5.0's? Thanks Mike

It will bolt to the C4. You'll need to use a '82 or newer flexplate because of the 50 ounce imbalance of the newer engine. You won't have the provision for a mechanical fuel pump with the newer engine's timing cover.

Your carb, intake, and headers will all fit.

Is the '88 a serpentine belt setup?

Back sides of heads may have threaded passage into 4 & 8 exhaust passages. Plug with short bolts/flat washer if necessary.

If you want to use v-belt drive accessories then:

a. Use old timing cover after removing block alignment pins for new cover.

b. Use old fuel cam eccentric if it has a pin or use aftermarket eccentric (Total Performance).

c. Use aftermarket three-bolt 50 oz-in imbalance harmonic (National Parts Depot). Your pulley system will then bolt up.

d. Accessory mount holes in heads are 7/16" instead of 3/8" so you have to drill out brackets, etc for 7/16". Ford makes over the counter part for adapting 7/16" hole for use with 3/8" alternator support bolt.

If upper radiator hose kinks, try '64 Galaxie 289 upper radiator hose.
