My buddy on a bmw forum found me a great deal on a 302.. so I had to hop on it..
This is the ad in the other forum post...
"The block is a "mexico spec" F150 (these are forged)
new rod bolts and berrings,
new valve kit pushrods,valves,seats,springs,cam,ect (oem)
pistson cleaned and with new rings, cyclinders honed
heads are from a 93 mustang and are ported and polished
new MSD ignition (cap,rotor,ect)
elderbrock breather valve and water neck
crank machined and turned
every single gasket and seal on the motor is new as well,(head gaskets,valve
cover gaskets,water neck,exhaust,intake manifold,carb,distributor,oil
pan,water pump, head journals, ect.
this motor can either be carborated or fuel injected as I wasnt sure which route I was going to go so I bought the parts for both
also includes accessory bracket and and accessories(alternator,AC,idler)and stock headers
if you choose to go with fuel injected you will need the fuel rails and injectors(these can be found anywhere for under $100 for everything), if you go with carb'd then you will need the actual carb itself(what bolts to the carb manifold)
The entire motor was dipped,degreased,preped,primed, and painted with VHT high temp engine paint( about $100 in paint alone)
The motor is basically new and will need to be "broken-in" before ran hard (rings need to seat ect. ect.) It will also need spark plugs,wires,and the acc belt.
The engine also come with a brand new engine stand($180) that I literally bought for this project, it is not even a month old!!!!
Asking $500 obo, I have easily double into it :'(
pics in a few"
...... Needless to say I got it for $300 and so Im hunting for more parts.
Anybody have any tips/hints on parts and what not?
