302 help

AWESOME..,went right to it..,seems to have just what i need. Will up date ya all if it works,lol.
I did all kinds of research on the casting #'s on block,that was what i came up with for the 302 engine..,LTD ll 1979.
I was given the motor by a friend..,who got it from a 1981 or 82 ford truck.
says it has 35,000 miles on a rebuild..,which..,some signs show "MAYBE"..,other signs say NO WAY.
it had a 2bbl carb adaptor on top of a Edelbrock 4bbl manifold. i "acquired" a 600 c.f.m. Edelbrock 4 bbl,for $25..,$50 for rebuild kit...,ready to wire it up and see how this FREE motor works out.
THANK YOU AGAIN for the link

justacertifiedtech You'll find a wiring diagrams for the donor vehicle here. figures 17, 18, and 19
That should give you an idea of what needs power and ground and where it's supposed to come from (i.e. switched or battery)

If you still need some help let us know more specifically what you need and we should be able to help figure it out.
