SOURCE: installing distributor for 1979 Ford f-150 V-8 302

If the engine is cranked (disturbed) with the distributor removed, it will now be necessary to retime the engine.

  1. Rotate the engine so that No.1 piston is at TDC of the compression stroke.
  2. Align the timing marks to the correct ignition timing shown on the underhood decal.
  3. Install the distributor with the rotor in the No.1 firing position and any armature pole aligned with a stator pole.
Make sure that the oil pump intermediate shaft properly engages the distributor shaft. It may be necessary to rotate the engine after the distributor gear is partially engaged in order to engage the oil pump intermediate shaft and fully seat the distributor in the block.
  1. If it was necessary to rotate the engine to align the oil pump, repeat Steps 1, 2 and 3.
  2. Install the holddown bolt finger tight.
  3. Install the distributor cap and wires.
  4. Connect the distributor wring connector to the wiring harness. Tighten the holddown bolt.
  5. Install the air cleaner, if removed.
  6. Check the ignition timing as outlined in Section 2.
  7. When everything is set, tighten the holddown bolt to 25 ft. lbs.

What is the spark plug firing order for a 1989 Ford Bronco with a 302 Cu. In. V8 engine?


There are three kinds of 302s made from 1982-2001. 5.0L HO This engine was used in 1983-1995 Mustangs, Mark VII Lincolns, and some T-birds and Cougars. All Explorer 5.0L engines are 5.0L HO engines as well. They use the 351W firing order, 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8. Except for the 1983-84 Mustangs, all of these engines are roller cam equipped. They use a reverse rotation water pump and front cover. The 1994-5 Mustang and all Explorers use a unique front cover and water pump. 5.0L Full Size Car This engine was used in 1982-1990 Crown Victoria and Grand Marquis. They use the 289-302 firing order, 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. Most of these cars are not roller cam equipped, however sometime in the early 1990s they started using roller cams but retained the 302 firing order. They use a standard (clockwise) rotation water pump and front cover. 5.0L Truck (except Explorer) These engines are similar to the Full Size Car engines, except they use different intake manifolds and camshaft profiles. They also use the 289-302 firing order, 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. They also began using roller cams sometime in the early 1990s. They use a reverse rotation water pump and front cover.

Good Luck

What all do you need to do to convert a 1992 ford 5.0 out of an f150 from fuel injection to a Carb.? I know that you need a carb, intake, and fuel pump. I'm putting this motor in my 1984 mustang it had a...


There are special electronic fuel pumps you can get for this kind of conversion that wont put to much fuel pressure in the carb and blow the bowls.
As long as the distributer is vacuum advance and for a 302 it should be able to work. The main difference will be the firing order on the truck engine may be different. So you have to make sure your #1 cylinder is at top dead center and route the post on the cap its pointing at to the #1 cylinder and go from there.
The intake and carb you have should also work.

I have a 73 ford 1.6 industrial motor. need electronic distributo


Look on E-bay for an electronic CD unit that fires from the original points, but generates about 400 volts to fire the standard coil. My guess is that there is no all-electronic ignition system available even as a racing option. Ford used this engine in the Pinto line of cars from`'71 to `73, and all of them used points and condenser distributors. The points and condenser units work fine if in good order and the point gap set at .025". Hope this gives you an assist!

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.

Where the oil pump in a 75 ford maverick is located and how to replace it!


Removal & Installation
  1. Remove the oil pan.
  2. Remove the oil pump inlet tube and screen assembly.
  3. Remove the oil pump attaching bolts. Lower the oil pump, gasket, and intermediate driveshaft from the crankcase.
  4. To install, prime the oil pump by filling either the inlet or outlet port with engine oil. Rotate the pump shaft to distribute the oil within the pump body.

V8 oil pump disassembled

  1. Position the intermediate driveshaft into the distributor socket. With the shaft firmly seated in the socket, the stop on the shaft should contact the roof of the crankcase. Remove the shaft and position the stop as necessary.
  2. Insert the intermediate driveshaft into the oil pump. Using a new gasket, install the pump and shaft as an assembly. Do not attempt to force the pump into position if it will not seat readily. If necessary, rotate the intermediate driveshaft hex into a new position so that it will mesh with the distributor shaft.
  3. Torque the oil pump attaching bolts to 10–15 ft. lbs. on the 6-cylinder engines, and 22–32 ft. lbs. on the 302 V8.
  4. Clean and install the inlet tube and screen assembly.
  5. Install the oil pan
