If this is fuel injected then my guess is an injector related problem, and
these two cylinders are lean.
If this is Carb'd I'd still suspect a lean condition, though I don't know
exactly how you would do it...
Pull the plugs and look at them carefully.  Are the two cylinders that are
real hot lighter in color then the two outer cylinders?
Is this Carb'd or injected?

Ihave a 302 with all new parts top to bottom (even the bolts) in a bronco
II.  When i crank it to run in the morning in less then five minutes i can
see (dark outside) the middle two headers on the drivers side are glowing
red hot.  Literally. It also has valve rattle at light cruising on the
highway. Seemingly on the same side. And the performance is off somewhat. It
will pull front tires but lags at top end like a timing adjustment.  It will
not time in enough to get the rattle out and it sounds almost exactly like
cheap gas.  Any suggestions?

If you have any interest in 1948-1979 F-series trucks, the
2001 Supernationals is THE place to go to. Over 800 trucks
in the show each year, plus hundreds more parked all over
the strip. Vendors, hundreds of awards, model car and truck
exhibit, t-shirts, tech shows and a great parade with about
2 miles of Effies!

The show is at the Grand Hotel and Convention center in
Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. You can book at room at any of the
many hotels around town or camp in the nearby Smokey Mountains.
There is a trolley/bus system so getting around town is easy.
Lots of fun things to do, Dollywood, the Smokey Mountains,
rides, outlet mails, craft centers, and much more. There is
something for the whole family.

The Grand Hotel can be contacted at:
3171 Parkway
Pigeon Forge, Tennessee 37863-3309
(865) 453-1000

Pat Ford Promotions can be contacted at:
1920 Council Avenue
Statesville, NC 28625
(704) 872-7327
Registrations should be sent to Pat Ford Promotions. Call or
write them to get a registration form.
Pre-registration for your truck: $20
Registration after April 15th: $25

Ford Truck Enthusiasts will be staying at the Howard Johnson.
The best reservation prices I've found was on www.expedia.com.
Every hotel listed near the Convention Center, are rated as
the same number of stars so price and location will be your
primary considerations.

The closest hotel to the Grand is the Holiday Inn.  It will
run about 30% more than the Howard Johnson's.  The HoJo is
within walking distance of the Grand (about 2 blocks).
The next hotel down the strip is the Days Inns.  It runs
slightly more than the HoJo and is further away from the Grand.

FTE stays at the HoJo when we reserve early.  Last year we
were at the Days Inn because we didn't reserve early enough.

This engine is carbed.  I am baffled by the fact it is only on these two
cylinders.  I do know that my fuel pump is not quite as strong as it should
be but it only noticed after a few seconds of a hard run.  you can hear the
aluminum lines pressuring back up and the engine starts missing.  But this
2-cyl problem has been here since day one as far as i can tell.  Simple
because the timing has never smoothed out and it has rattled a little since
the start at certain speeds.

Have you checked for a vaccuum leak?  I'm thinking at the intake
between the two cylinders.  Also I would look for crossfire at the cap,
maybe some carbon tracking inside the cap between the spark plug
terminals.

Pulling the front wheels sounds like fun!  :)
