    302 and 289 Swap

    I recently completed just this same swap. Mine was a 1969 302 and was a direct bolt-in. I don't know which other years would be a direct fit, but I do have a book that may show which 302 would be a bolt-in. (I think). It's titled FORD Engine Parts Interchange written by George Reid. Do you have a specific year 302 in mind?

    Search for my thread titled "302 for SmithKid".

    1965 Ranchero

    Mine are Doug's. They were a pretty good fit. Only rubbed on the steering box, which was cured by raising that side of the engine a 1/4" or so by putting a spacer on top of the L motor mount. It now sits at a slight angle, but I intend on raising the Pass side a similar amount "sometime in the near future". Make for some real limber joints to get the Z-bar back in. Fortunately one of my GREAT helpers did that for me.
