Finally brought it home. Internals are rusted solid. Have a new 302 I am building up to put in for now.

On the ride back:

As she sits:



My findings:




"New" short block:


New parts (gaskets, seals, bearings, headlights, wipers, carb, misc bolts and such):


Slowly she'll get built up. Right now the 302 is going to be stock with E7 heads, aluminum intake and headers. I need to finish pulling the other head, douse it in penetrant, and see if it will rotate so I can unbolt the torque converter. If I can't, I may have to pull the converter with the engine..

Thanks.

The 302 is coming back out.... For the 27,000 mile 351W I just picked up for $275:













Everything is factory original. I can't wait to regasket it, get a set of headers and a new intake, then I can put it in and have a running truck again.

Got it down to a long block:








And the good news is my 302 headers should fit.
