So I just started a 302 swap on an 85 ranger longbed 2wd. I got a 1980 302 that I just pulled apart tonight, i got lucky it only has some issues with one cylinder. Im not going to build it rediculous, just simple with a nice cam. I was just wondering if anyone else has done the same swap, and had any info for me. Any hard parts to find, any fab work, etc. Also any suggestions on transmissions, I was thinking c4, if not I have an old school top loader 5spd that is new. Can I use stock manifolds or do I have to go with headers, dont get me wrong headers are good but im on a budget right now. I am wondering about the fans too, I dont know if I will have enough clearance for the stock fan, or if I have to run an Efan. Any ways let me know!
