I think they are all the same size, right? I picked up a set with the spider and one is longer. All of them have the dimpl but the longer one also has 3.0 on it. What does it belong to?

The one without the 3.0 is what I have 7 of but I havn't checked the fit yet as the 351 I got has about 15 inches of snow still on it. Do you recognize the one with 3.0 on it?

My guess is that they are from a 3.0 liter V-6.

your local auto machine shop should have plenty of them. if you use the ones you have, just put them in and check to make sure that they are not binding anywhere. good luck

I just called the guy and he said that the 3.0 uses a similar setup like the 302 HO but the lifters are further apart. He is going to send me out another one for the 302.
