    Hey everyone! I'm new to forums but can use the help. I just purchased a SBC off a family member which I believed to be a 327. When I checked the casting numbers 3 types of motors show up with the same casting. 302.327 & 350. I have the Front VIN numbers also. First set are: L7157568 second set...

    Hey guys, I'm wondering if there is anyway to tell if my 1985 crown vic is roller ready or not. Its a 2 barrel carb, non HO 302. Preferably without taking it apart first... And if anyone has had success with the roller lifters designed specifically for non-roller blocks if it comes to it. I...

    I'm making plans to to build either a 289 or a 302 with a manual tranny for my 1962 comet. The 170 six just isn't blowing my skirt up. My question is, which engine would I get the most out of for the least amount of money? Which would be a better ending product? Ideas for a build? Originality...

I have a 95 mustang gt and I'm thinking about replacing my old ones for some alloys but I don't want to go through pressing on new rings if I don't need them. I know it won't be as safe but I just need to know if the...

    I bought a vehicle with a Ford 302 in it last year. It had been sitting for about five years, from what I heard it was only started once in that period of time. Anyway, it runs fine but it has a ticking sound. The previous owner thinks it's a hydraulic lifter. We tried some transmission fluid...
