The 402 I ran was in a 49 Merc. It had a Muncy 4 speed with 3.08 gear. The thing I liked about it was it was smooth as silk (stock engine)but gobs of toque compared to a 350. For a street car that was a real cruiser but still felt good running the gears, I thought it was great. If you weren't in Michigan, I would be glad to take one off your hands.
