Post 302 into CJ

I found a HO 302 out of a 86 mustang complete with a chip, and headers for $500. I have a t-5 and a t-176 trans, so I wouldn't need any adapters. Anyone have a writeup on swappin in a 302, it sounds really easy. but I may be wrong. What about motor mounts, radiator, etc.


Found a 85 CJ7 tub in good shape with
minimal rust. The resto continues....

Finally, someone putting a ford motor in a jeep. I've been trying to coax my chevy friends to do this for years with no luck. (everyone with any mechanical knowledge knows ford is best) ha ha Anyways, about the motor mounts, I've seen them online before but can't remember where. Run search engines on everything related until you find what your looking for. Even look for transmission adapters, engine conversions, or anything that might find a company that sells both. Sorry I couldn't have been more help but at least you know someone makes them. In the mean time I'll keep an eye out for them.

Ive found them, but I just don't want to buy them if I can use two 258 mounts. The problem I'm having is figuring out how to rebuild it. I found new GT-40 heads for $300, and was told not to use them becuase they would give me more top end. What is a good way to rebuild a 302 for some low end.?

small block chevy has been made since like 1962 i think till 2000 .... how can you say ford makes a better V-8 .... the 5.0 302 isnt even a 4 bolt main and makes higher end power and was never know for its torque ,, a buddy did 5.0 swap was great on the highway too bad he had to switch to 4.88' gears to make it useable off road
