Ford= If it fits the cylinder, then the pin/rod can be made to fit.

If a 302 used the 5.7 rod, the compression height must be tall enough to make the piston come to the deck. So it would have to be 1/4 inch more than a 350. (.240)

9.0 -1.5 -5.7 = 1.8 compression height. Center of pin to piston top.

Which is .927/2 + 1.337 = 1.8

1.337 is exactly what techie said.
