302 question

this is my first build and my first big motor rebuild. Im swapping a 302 into my 49 f-1 pick up. I got the motor cheap and was told it was missing a little bit but the more i get into it i seem to be missing more. my question is anybody have pics of a built 302 outside of the engine bay. Im converting from efi to a carb system and im not sure what i will need for pulleys and all that. Ive seen pics with two pulleys and some with six or so puleys any help about the 302 set up would be great. thanks

The old motor in a box syndrome, "but hey trust me it's mostly there". "Ya, sure, you betcha" as they say in the Ballard section of Seattle.

An EFI 302 internally is a roller cammed block. On the outside it has a serpentine belt accessory drive, how many pulleys it had depended upon the options put on the car the engine comes out of. What you need to worry about is how many accessories plus water pump and alternator your running in the 49 F1.

Edlebrock makes a couple intakes that will allow conversion to carb, 2121 if you don't need EGR and 3721 if you do.

If you run a lot of accessories then serpentine drive makes some sense, this requires a reverse rotation water pump Edlebrock has one PN 8840. If all your running is the water pump and an alternator, V-belts make a cleaner simpler installation, not needing to run a bunch of idler pulleys, these take a conventional rotation water pump again Edlebrock 8845. which ever you choose the all the pulleys, including the crank pulley, need to match the type of belt chosen.

Whether you run a conventional or reverse rotation pump with a pump driven fan it also needs to agree with the rotation direction of the pump so watch this.

I'm not trying to sell you Edlebrock parts, I only reference them so you can go to their web site a view the technical data they present.
