95 ranger 302 swap. ok i havent found what works for a 76 truck 302. the stock pump is pass side inlet, the swap rad is drivers side outlet. wth ford. which timing chain cover do i use with a drivers side inlet on the pump? and i prefer a v belt set up, never was a fan of serpentine set up

If that has a passenger side water pump inlet, it's not a 76 302. It's a pre 1970's motor or one from a 70's Bronco or Econoline van. Depending on what timing cover is there, you may not be able to mount a driver's side pump. Lastly, that'll be a std rotation pump either way.

finally found and decoded the block numbers. its a 1972 out of a torino type car. i found a brand new, matched water pump and timing cover for $75. bad thing is its reverse rotation which means i have to run a serp belt set up for a 94/95 mustang 302

Block numbers only tell you what vehicle line the engineering costs were assigned to. If it had a passenger side inlet pump on a 70's block, then that engine either came from a Bronco or Econoline van. Also that Stang pump and timing cover won't work with the harmonic balancer with that motor. The timing marks will be incorrect for the pointer and the pulley offset is different, so you'll either need a 70's car balancer or get the #1 cylinder to TDC on the compression stroke, then use timing tape to get the marks you'll need to time it. It's best not to attempt to mix front end accessory components on these motors. Either use all Bronco accessory stuff that'll work with the 3 bolt balancer on it, (that should be what it has) or get a complete set of front end drive parts (balancer, pulleys, waterpump and brackets) from a 70's car, and go from there.

You can but you will need a 4 bolt 28 oz/in balancer to match those parts. The 3 bolt balancer's pulley offset is different. You'll need all the Stang's accessories as well, the 70' stuff won't work
