Unfortunately, You will need to Change it all. None of the V8 Components will Transfer to the Inline 6. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

I want to replace5.4L in my 03 f150 with a non triton engine ..what can i use? is there a 4.7L i want to do away with triton engine...could i put inline 6 in it?

the major problem with fitting different engines is the transmission housing compatibility
if the bolt pattern is different, the cost of obtaining an adaptor plate makes the different engine fitment expensive
there is a technical division in ford motor company that you can contact for advice and they will be able to advise which engines have the same bolt patterns that will allow the change over
of course the other method is to change the engine / transmission as an assembly so if you want to put a inline six in use the inline six transmission as well

I need a diagram showing the spark plug wires on a ford 302 motor

FIRING ORDERS NOTE: To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement. If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your book to reflect how your engine is wired. Fig. 1: 300 cid (4.9L) inline six-cylinder engines Firing order: 1-5-3-6-2-4 Distributor rotation: Clockwise 85762008.gif
Fig. 2: 232 cid (3.8L) V6 engine Firing order: 1-4-2-5-3-6 Distributor rotation: Counterclockwise 85762006.gif
Fig. 3: 255 cid (4.2L), 302 cid (5.0L), 360 cid (5.9L), 390 cid (6.5L), 460 cid (7.5L) V8 engines Firing order: 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 Distributor rotation: Counterclockwise 85762007.gif
Fig. 4: 351 cid W & M (5.8L), 400 (6.6L) engines Firing order: 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8 Distributor rotation: Counterclockwise 85762009.gif

I want to change my 4.9 6 cyl to a 302 v8 1990 150 ford

A donor truck is a good idea, but the transmission, bell housing, cross members and transmission mounts will all be the same as long as you dont go from manual to auto or opposite. motor mounts will be different tho. i put a manual trans off of a 94 F-150 with a 300 6-cyl into my 91 bronco with a 351 V8 (5.8L) and used all the mounts and crossmembers off of the 94. only thing is the petal assm was different due to body changes. and the 5.8L also has a 11" clutch **** and the 5.0L and 4.9L both use a 10" disk. the bad thing is you will have a ton of stuff to change like the ECU, and engine harness and and other then the Ypipe and converters the exhaust will work. such a project is not for the faint of heart.
