302 flat tap vs 302 roller engine

Recommended Posts

Same bellhousing pattern same engine mounts same physical size, just make sure your harmonic balancer and flywheel/ flexplate match the engine as roller windsors use a 56ounce balance and early use a 46 ounce balance

50oz for roller and 28oz for the old school.

I was thinking it may have been fat fingers on a cell phone.

How are you going to set the front of the engine up and are you running a carb or efi?

Is there something I should keep in mind?

few things to keep in mind..

 

The roller may not have a fuel pump cam installed, and even may not have the slot in the timing cover for the mech fuel pump.

Depending on the setup, water pump rotation could be a issue so make sure you get the all sorted too..

 

Unless its a retro fit roller :D

Later 5.0s use a serpentine belt which in this case drives the water pump off the back of the belt spinning it backwards when compared to the v-belt setup.<br /><br />One thing that all these 5.0 serpentine examples have in common is water pump rotation0826e26c3dbecec9598820a6152fad75.jpg
