So after reviewing some of your responses and evaluating my parts inventory as well as budget I am leaning towards going with the 302 rebuild. I recently purchased a hoist and a engine stand so whats coming next? You guessed it I'm going to be pulling the motor. Of course I'm going to need some help tips pointers I wish I could find some video I could watch to help out. Anyway I will update you once I get it all in motion.
