    Acceptable lifter bore wear on a 302

    Hi, I am in the process of getting my 1971 block ready for boring out and some other work and noticed some wear marks in the lifter bores. The block is on a standard cylinder bore size and the crank that came out was on standard mains and 0.010 big ends which were done recently and not run...

    302 firing order - should I avoid 1542

    Hello, I'm currently doing my best to spec a 331 stroker from a 1971 302 block, whilst researching this subject i have read (more than once) that the standard 15426378 loads up the front main with the first 2 strokes being above No1 main and should be avoided. Even though the 351 & later 302...
