Make sure each ring is right-side up. Screw-in oil galley plugs are installed at this time prior to block assembly. Also used was a special road racing style 8-quart oil pan. In the past the ports would twist around the pushrods. Step-27: Install the Expander Oil ring installation begins with the expander. Step-04: Wash the Cam The camshaft should be installed first because the crankshaft tends to get in the way of easy installation. The Ford engineers developed a brand new head with straight intake ports and the pushrod tubes running through the port.
Packaged with the Billet Pulleys and Alternator. Using the information provided by the cam card, we determine valve timing events by running the crankshaft two full revolutions. Two Autolite 4300 carburetors were used on the street version. Do not remove the cap until it is time to install the piston and rod. Oddly, this engine was introduced in 1963 as the only 289 engine available in the intermediate Fairlanes. T5z 5 Speed Transmission Kit with Clutch, fork and Starter. The 302 engine was introduced in 1968.
Step-20: Torque the Main Caps Main bearing cap bolts are torqued in third values — meaning they are torqued to one-third their full torque valve, then another third, then the full amount, which is 60 to 70 ft-lbs. The 302 is still available as a complete crate motor from Ford Racing Performance Parts. The D-code engine is relatively rare, as it was only offered as an optional engine in the latter half of the 1964 model year. Some of you have waited a long time for this. I assure you, it's worth the wait. .
The engine was complete with thermactor emissions control hardware, 289 Hi-Po style exhaust manifolds, and a thermostatic clutch radiator fan. The real magic of the Boss engines came from the canted-valve Cleveland cylinder heads. Don't feel too bad though, I'm already working on the solution. Coolant is routed out of the block through the intake manifold. Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.

The Ford tunnel-port design runs the pushrod through the center of a round intake port, within a thin wall tube.
The taller-deck 351W and 351C have a 3. It also created a semi-hemispherical combustion chamber. It had a unique head which optimized torque over high-rpm breathing, frequently replaced by enthusiasts with aftermarket heads providing better performance. The corrugated wall method of block construction had caused cleaning difficulties in the foundry from day one and a change was phased in. This configuration also enabled larger valves to be used. In 1970, the manufacturing of the engine was moved from Windsor, Ontario to Cleveland,Ohio.
The top ring is exposed to more heat than the second ring. Take extra care not to scratch the ring lands. The engine uses a separate aluminum timing chain cover, which differentiates it from the later engines that use an integrated timing cover. The 289 weighed 506 lb 230 kg. They also had smaller 59-61 cc combustion chambers for added compression, and the combustion chamber shape was revised to put the spark plug tip near the center of the chamber for a more even burn. This one needs extra caution to ensure rear main seal security and smooth operation. A high-performance version of the 289 engine was introduced late in the 1963 model year as a special order for Ford Fairlanes.
Even as the small block neared the end of its life, development continued, with new cylinder heads introduced for the in 1997.

This minimizes the risk of mixing up the rod caps, which are each matched to their rod.
When Ford switched to net power ratings in 1972, it was rated at 153 to 161 hp 114 to 120 kW , although actual, installed horsepower was only fractionally lower than in 1971. If that doesn't work, replace the pressure line. The engine was introduced on April 17, 1969. Check your instructions and the packaging for specifics. It produced 372 hp at 6,800rpm and 325 lb-ft of torque at 4,200rpm.
Step-25: Second Ring Compression rings differ from each other based on the conditions they face. The 302 tunnel-port motor was topped off with an aluminum dual quad intake. In mid-1997, the Explorer and Mountaineer 5. Step-06: Install the Cam The camshaft is carefully inserted into the cam alley, taking extra care to ensure that the journals are not nicked by the lobes.
