I wouldn't waste my time doing a stock rebuild on a 302. There's enough crashed Explorer/Mountaineers from the late 90's with good used motors that can be had for way cheaper than rebuilding one.

Ah, all in the prep work. Thank you for posting that BTW. I've been thinking of spraying my '84 frame down with POR 15 and I honestly probably wouldn't have read all the tiny crap on the can lol

POR15 stops and prevents rust. It doesn't prevent it on nice clean metal unless you get it prepped perfectly for it. I think it has something to do with pores. Like rusty metal is more porous than...

Yep POR 15 doesn't hold onto clean things well. My father and I are helping a buddy build a 76 Chevy and we're boxing the frame in. Inside his frame rails (slightly rusty) the POR 15 held great. But...

I pull the bed off when I can. I've only done one fuel pump by dropping the tank, and it was in an 87. It got very aggravating actually.

That definitely does look great. Sometimes I wish I had just left my Bronco alone. Only done a nice wheel/tire package and lift because I love that clean look.

I had a customer bring in their car, it was a little Toyota Camry, and it was slipping. Checked trans fluid, completely empty. Filled it up and started it to see where the leak was, couldn't find...

Quick test for your auto hubs. Put transfer case in 2wd, reach down to the front drive shaft and spin it. If you hear the hubs click and the drive shaft stops spinning, your hubs are locking in. If...

Try to find a good used engine for cheap. Swap it in, and then tear down your original 4.9 and build it up how you want. That could be a fun little project.

Also for what it's worth, I had an 87...

A bunch of my dads older friends were Vietnam vets and I learned early on to not ask them much about it. Vietnam is a very touchy subject and I feel sorry for anyone that had to go there.

Stay 4.9. Much easier.
4.9 does have an SBF bell housing though so the trans thing is not an issue at all. But you will be disappointed in the power of the 302. 302 IMO is a car engine where as the...

Marvel mystery oil is awesome stuff. Great piece of advice. And sorry to hear about both of your fathers. You'll have to tell them thanks for their service for me.
