In a message dated 98-02-15 19:22:36 EST, you write:


if Ford made a manifold for the 302 (possibly in a 4x4 or truck) that
exits toward the Center of the manifold or between the last two
cylinders??

Thanks

Bill -
When I put a 289 in a '52, I used a right side manifold on the left side,
which made the exhaus exit to the front. A 180 bend put it right.
That's all I had at the time. There are probably several different right
side as well as left side manifolds which exit in different places, but I
don't know what they are. Headers are an option, but don't fit in a
shoestring budget, which is what I'm usually working with.

Subject: Axle Bearings

The man rebuilding my rearend told me he can't find the axle bearing
part #'s to get new ones. These are pretty trashed and no part numbers on the
bearings. the # on the bearing does not apply to a bearing. I told him as far
as I knew the rearend was a stock unit in the truck. Is it possible that new
bearings were installed previously..or that they are stock and the #'s on them
were lot or batch numbers from the mfgr. It a 1 piece bearing, not a split
race. There has to be a replacement. They are 28 spline. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance-kent

not familiar with the ford but if you have no luck you can grab a set of
block huggers. they are made for tight fits in rods, usually model t+a that
have modern powerplants. nothing tighter than a set of 32 rails with a big
bolck crammed between them.
