That part is called a "fuel inertia cutoff relay". It's there in case of a collision.............and cuts off the flow of gas. Sometimes it will pop up after hitting a large bump or jarring motion, while driving. Not B.S.

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.

Drive 1988 ford f150 on the highway it dies and won,t start back. It acts like it is out of gas. Let it set 30 mins. and it starts right up

Fuel Pump-a possible. The time frame of 30 minutes will vary.
The armature on the pump motor is worn, as well as the tiny bearing,so it seizes or just stops conducting current.
Drop fuel tank and replace. May be able to remove all bed bolts but rear ones, and tip bed up.

Ford 302 engine

Sounds like the fuel pump is not working. I would find myself a repair manual and start reading about troubleshooting. If not interested in that I would call a repair shop.

89 ford F150 4x4 302 stalls on exceleration.

There are a couple of things you can check. Ford used two fuel filters on some vehicles, but you don't see much information about the one mount on the frame because they expect it to last for the life of the vehicle. The one of coarse is on the firewall and you probably changed that.
To find out if you have the second filter and it's more likely that you do than don't.
Look along the inside of the frame between your high pressure pump and the fuel tank[mine is where the skid plate that protects the transmission is located and I have to drop the skid plate to reach it] see if the fuel lines run into a round looking plastic box that is mounted behind a metal shield, if you see it you will need to remove the shield to reach it. It's necessary to unscew the canister and replace the cartridge which most auto parts stores carry.I found it easier to work on if I remove the fuel lines then took the filter unit out, but you may not have to.
Another thing you can check is the fuel pressure regulator. Especially if you have the vacuum type regulator, because the diaphram can develop a pin hole that leaks raw fuel into the intake manifold and cause alot of squirrelly problems. The leak can eventually become bad enough to fill the cylinders with raw fuel and lock up the engine because unlike air liquid can not be compressed.
