You need one more bit of information!!!
What we have is your engine date code, providing the year of manufacture, but not the "Decade" of manufacture. You will need the Engine Tag/Plate number for additional info.
9K28

  • 9 = ninth year of a certain decade
  • K = month
    • A = Jan
    • M = December
    • (i is not used)
  • Next 2 digits are numbers, hence I think your B is an 8
Your engine was manufactured on October 28, 19x9 to find x you need to ...

Locate the Engine Tag / Plate... (this is for Ford Engines)
  • It can be near the coil, where the bolts secure it.
  • by/under the oil dipstick tube
  • under heat indicator bulb
  • under the stud attaching carburetor (this is for larger engines)
There will be a long number on it.
And it will start with an Alpha Character...
  • 1st position - Probably not an "A"... but this letter designates the "Decade" in which the engine was built.
    • "B" = 1950's, C = 1960's, etc
  • 2nd position - will be a numeral from 0 - 9 and this designates the year (1st to 10th) of the above decade it was built.
  • 3rd position - Basic design of the Vehicle
    • example: A - Generic engine, full size, E or T - Truck, L - Lincoln, M - Mercury, and for you car buffs... O - '67-'76 Torino's and all Fairlanes, Z - Mustangs,
  • 4th position - Almost always an E - meaning made by the Engine Design Team (which Design Team? Engine design team)
  • And the last 4 positions are the part number of that engine
Just for fun, this is a cool site...

I have a 1973 ford mustang grande and the engine in it is not the original engine. I was told it was the original 302 but i know its not. I looked up the model/serial number right behind the carbeurator on...


That number is not on the block - it is on the intake manifold. It is also not a model or serial number. That number is the casting number for an intake manifold. Yes, it is an intake manifold for a 302 cid engine.

How to install distributor wire the order I misted the order


Depending on what engine you have, hear are the firing orders:
Small block 302 or big block 460: 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8
Small block 351: 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8
Looking at the engine from the front, cylinder number 1 is at the front on your left. That side is numbered 1-2-3-4. Number 5 cylinder is at the front on your right and the numbering is 5-6-7-8. The distributor spins counterclockwise. Number 1 is usually marked on the cap. If not, no.1 on the cap is about 1 o'clock as you're looking at it from the front. Good luck!

Have a 1985 ford f150 302 efi v8 need to know the firing order?


1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 The rotor turns counter-clockwise. Make sure to keep #7 and #8 spark plug wires separated. The 5.0L had a problem with 7 and 8 cross-firing because they fire so close to each other. Ford changed the firing order on that engine, in later years , because of that reason. Hope this helps ya... Cobra :-)

Have a Holly 350 2bb on 302 FORD CLEVELAND V/8 IT


302 is a small block. Cleveland was a line of big blocks Ford made.
But it sounds like you just have a weak power valve.

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.
