302 windsor pinging

I have fitted a 302 Windsor into a Sunbeam Tiger . I am going mad trying to solve a pinging problem . The motor was rebored to 40 thou oversize fitted with grant flat top pistons with valve relief cutouts also a edelbrok performer rpm cam plus manifold and four barrel edelbok 500 cfm carb plus headers . Heads are pretty standard The motor pings on light throttles not as much on a loaded throttle . Our fuel in this country is 95 octane . the pinging does not seem logical in so far as it seems worse on light throttle as opposed to a loaded throttle .Changing the timing does not seem to have a major effect .

    Sounds like a compression ratio issue. standard pistons are dish tops, Couple of questions, what are the heads marked as, do you have any idea on the what cc the heads are? Was any block decking or head planing done in the rebuild. We are lucky in Australia, premium is 98 octane, and you can get up to 100 octane pump gas.

How do I find out what make, model my 302 engine came out of ? It's in my '66 Mustang. I was told it's a '71 motor, but I would like 2 know what make, model ex (LTD, Maverick, F-100 Pickup) etc.?


Try taking the number off the engine and see if the dealer can search it up. I doubt they only put it in one car model, but the number on the engine should match the frame. Get where I'm going? As old as it is, I wouldn't expect anything though.

351 windsor


You can tell by looks or by the VIN number if the engine is original.
The fifth digit could be H or Q. H is for the Windsor engine and Q is for Cleveland. The Windsor looks like an ordinary 289 or 302 engine, the Cleveland is a big head 400 version. I don't think they used a 4bbl Windsor but they did use a 2bbl Cleveland so that is not a good example.

What year fords parts will fit 1990 ford 150


Fords were pretty interchangeable, I believe there are parts from trucks 87-96 that fit such as beds, doors, mirrors, etc. As far as engines and hardware go everything should be changeable. The 5.8 was one big one whether its the modified, the cleveland, or the windsor. Also the 5.0 (302) from Mustangs or trucks could be interchanged pretty simply as long as you used the original transmissions.

I have a 1965 food falcon with a mustang 302 (1978 ) v8. how do i know if it is a windsor or not?


Well there is a 302 cleveland, they are mainly an Australian engine. Identifying one is much like telling the difference between a 351 windsor and a 351 cleveland. Based on the fact that it's from Ford's 335 engine family. 8 cap screws to hold on the valve covers, the block is longer do to the timing chain housing being integrated. The fuel pump bolts are mounted vertically, and the exhaust bolt holes are diagonal. Also, a big difference between an american 302 and an aussie 302 cleveland, is the connecting rods for the cleveland are 6.000''. Where the american 302 connecting rod length is 5.090". Also, referring to a 302 as a windsor is incorrect, it's block families name is the 90 degree v8. The only engine in that family that is properly named the windsor, is the 351 windsor. The 90 degree family also includes the 302 boss. The boss has cleveland style heads, and the block has screw in freeze plugs.

How do i adjust the valves on a 69 351 windsor motor


The only 351 Windsor with solid lifters is the 351 "R" 4V
1971-1972 Boss 351-HO. All others are hydraulic. To solve noise in hydraulic lifters, replace them and check push rod ends for wear (actually you really should change them, too) but many guys go "cheap charlie" on this.

Need info to rebuild 351 windsor motor 1998


port polish only on heads, they crack plus valve job. on the block and cam, that motors all torque so go with low end output, fat cam, 30 over max on bore-they crack. safest way for big power is a stroke kit. call edelbrock tell them you wishes and what you have now, main thing is how much your gonna have to bore to clean up walls, and they give you some good options. unless you have alota money and dont require this motor to be dependable dont expect more than 320hp and 350 ft of torque. 302 will take you farther cheaper and lighter for your money. if your talking for a car and not a truck- go 302 and dont look back
