thanks for the input. found a compleat rear out of a stang at the bone
yard for 200 bucks. hopefully the right year. will find out this
weekend. im sure the stock 6cyl. rear wont hold up to a really built
302. they also have a t-5 out of a thunderbird turbo coupe.for 250
bucks. were these the same as the v-8s had. what kind of adapters do
you need, clutch linkage does it take. what kind of money am i looking
at to make the 5 speed work. i was planning on a top loader. but
overdrive would be nice. thanks bronco buster

Are you sure its a 9" and not an 8" ? check the bolts on the 3rd member, if
one of them is impossible to get with a socket, then its a 9", if a socket
fits on all of them, its an 8" ...

I dunno that I'd be so sure, likely not, but you never know til you break it
:)

Nope, they had a lower first gear if I remember right ... also some
different spacing ... I don't remember the ratio's for sure, but if you
check around on the web I'm sure you'll find them listed ... the guys over
at http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://users2.cgiforme.com/silly34/cfmboard.html might know (they have a
Turbo board too) ...

Well the 5.0's used the T5, so obviously a 302 will bolt up to that ...
there are some mods that need to be done to the bellhousing to make it work,
but I dont' remember what they all are, again its one of those things I
found on the net and probably lost the bookmark to ... I have seen an
article done in a mustang magazine, but it was years ago and don't remember
which one ...

Okay, I'm callin on all you FI/BII experts out there (Tim you listenin? :)

I've got an 86 from a friend of mine, she's been havin some problems with
it, so I told her I'd take a look at it ... well it was really loud on the
test drive, really loud, exhaust and ticking and such ... so she took it to
the muffler shop where they changed the oil and put on a new exhaust (cat
back it looks like) ... so then I picked it up and drove it about 30miles
with an incredible tick coming from the engine compartment somewhere ... it
bogged once and bucked a few times, but ran okay (nothing to write home
about) ... anyway opened the hood and noticed there was a melted/leaky fuel
line! didn't notice this 'til I'd driven about another 40 miles or so ...
got that fixed last night and the ticking subsided on the way home, but
wouldn't you know it was bucking about every minute and a half, just like it
missed a couple cylinders ... then I hit a huge hill where I had to hit the
gas and the ticking came back, but it stopped bucking ... now when it ticks
it runs okay, but when it doesn't tick it misses a little (but doesn't annoy
the crap outta me like the ticking does) ... sometimes it feels like there's
a valve of some sort sticking (bog, then come out of it in a smooth manner
rather than something popping open) ...

There's also a host of other electrical problems I'm sure, the tach reads
about 2x what the actual revs are ... the Fuel gauge worked for about 5
minutes over the last 4 days, and the temp gauge barely moves, though its
not putting out much heat either, so could be a direct relation there ...

Anyway just wondering if anyone had any ideas ... I do plan on hunting down
grounding wires, just gotta find some time (maybe tonight), also don't
really know where they should all be, looks like battery (-) goes to the
frame, then frame to block ... should there be a body to block or body to
frame ? also what about the interior wiring, is there a special dash ground
or anything that might cause the tach to read high ?

Just my $.02
