1982 Engine Swap

Hey guys. I posted awhile back about doing a 302 swap from a explorer but things have changed. I found a 91 F150 for $300 and have robbed the motor and rims off of it. The motor is a 351w. Motor is almost done and about to go back in. With that said, what all do I need to hook up the carb? I have a Weiand Stealth and Edelbrock 1406.

hook everything up just like you had on your 302. make sure your using the proper flywheel/flexplate on that 351w. it will be a 28oz imbalance.

So the stock brakets and everything will work? Just trying to see if I need to order anything to get it in by the weekend.

I would keep the 5.8 intact using the serp belt setup. use this time to upgrade to a saginaw steering pump/bracket from a later year van. install an electric fuel pump for a carbed motor, these should only produce around 4-7psi of fuel pressure. also look up the 3G altenator upgrade. this will give you a solid runner.

Sorry I should've been more specific and I have found out more today. Over the weekend I got a water pump and it was just not working. The bolts going through or the mounting the power steering pump. Turns out the motor is out of a mid 80s Crown Vic off of the power steering pump bracket number. Something should've thrown me off when a 82 Bronco had a serp belt. I have switched timing covers to keep the mechanical fuel pump. I actually work at a starter and alternator shop so a 3G one wire was already planned lol.

By brackets I should've said throttle cable brackets. Will the old factory one work on the aftermarket stuff?

oh i see, ya this changes things a bit. you will need to change the oil pan to a truck 5.8 pan. did the 80s crownvic motor have the fuel pump ecentric on the cam bolt ? if it doesnt then your fuel pump wont work. You might be able to take the one off your 5.0 i am not sure.

what transmission are you running in the bronco? the proper flexplate/flywheel is necessary for the 5.8.
running a serp belt setup a reverse rotation water pump would be necessary although i dont believe a stock WP will bolt to that type of timing cover.

are you saying the current motor in your bronco (5.0) is out of a crown vic and already has the serp belt setup?

Yes the 5.0 in the Bronco was from a Crown Vic. I have swapped the timing cover onto the 5.8 already and it did have the fuel pump eccentric. Not too sure on the transmission.. I'm guessing C6?

if its a 3 speed auto then a C6 would be correct. If the trans has OD then an AOD would be in there.

all the front accessories from the car should match up to the 5.8.

I haven been able to drive it too fast since it would only do about 20mph so I'm not sure on gears. I'd have to get under and see the pan. Will the torque converter from the 302 go on the 351?

the transmission itself i wouldnt worry about that includes the TC. its important to run the correct 5.8 flexplate for the model trans you have. if you use the wrong one it will destroy the transmission.

what does your gear shift selector look like on the steering column.

The 5.8 transmission was failing and that's why I picked it up cheap. I don't want to but that one on since of all the debris it might have. Will the 5.0 one bolt up or will it cause problems?

the 5.0 trans will bolt up to the motor just fine. again use the correct flexplate.

Sorry I haven't meant the torque converter from the 5.0 on the 5.8. Other truck is in the shop so it's been crazy. I'd just check but I don't wanna take it off the stand yet.
