    What year car had that?

    I know most people ditch the foam insulators on the newer cars since they just keep moisture up against them and speed up the rot process. I’d probably say ignore...

    Stock camshaft from late '85 and onwards was roller for car engines. Flat tappet cams are in the '79-'85 cars.

    Physically they should bolt onto the engine. Not sure about clearances on the sides (like steering shafts, etc...), that's something you'd need to check. Any competent exhaust should could get it...

    Yup. Pickup 302s are the weird ones that kept flat tappets up until 1993, finally switching to roller in 1994.

    Can't go wrong with Standard. Used their brand wires on the 4.6, fit real nice.

    I'm running NGK 52233 wires on my 302 right now. Love the fit, plus they're blue, so they add a nice splash of color.

    Late ‘85 and up is roller cam, so no need to figure out a conversion there.

    Regarding the pistons, I do have valve reliefs with no center dishing. To my knowledge it did get a replacement short...

    Now just exactly how does one break off the 2G's cooling fan blades like that? That must have made some really cool noises when it came apart.

    Like you said, good excuse to roll up to the 3G.

    Sounds like you did everything right, or at least the same way I did.

    I don't know if I'd trust running that much current through the factory wiring though. All the headlight power quite...

    I recall my ‘87 did that until I put the external relay harness in. I don’t think the factory harness likes driving the H4 bulbs and back feeds a little into the high beam circuit.

    IIRC Type F works fine in the pumps. Around ‘95 or so Mercon was spec’d instead.
