      I get that some times also. What I did is shrink the Photos and it works great.

      Can not believe you had NOTHING holding that tans in besides Starter and Fly Wheel and Trans mount bolts. Glad you got under her to get things started. Did you driver her at all like that?

      I primed the engine while it was on the hoist. As you can see from the oil pan it was school bus yellow 20180128_101752.jpg

      And last one for now. Still waiting on mt bronze gear, tps sensor, flywheel,starter,and oil pan, im using some old ugly valve covers i had in the basement for now.. i also put on the old headers they were too ugly so im ordering some. Ill pull the 4.0 out next weekend and start putting in the 302. Until then im going to tear apart the wire harness and make it look real nice ... once we get into the instalation stages pictures and things i run into will be more detailed

      What cam is in that again, it's a roller right? The distributor needs a steel gear for almost all 302 roller cams.

      Might want to hold off on those headers. The only ‘manufactured’ headers to fit a v8 in an Explorer are the TorqueMonsters. There was a knock off and FMS headers, I believe, but finding either will be tough.

      I ordered a set of OE headers the ones i had were original,crusty, and one had a crack in it. The OE headers will work for now until we get going then my buddy is going to take the vehicle and make headers for it at no cost to me. He has been learning how to make headers so he needs the practice. I cant remember the cam we put that in years and years and years ago it was pretty aggressive. The motor was only in the car for a few weeks before the car got rolled over.

      I could be mistaken, I think the 2 lower trans bolt holes mentioned in the earlier post are just for the inspection ( torque converter drain plug access) cover-


      edit. Nevermind, I was not paying close enough attention.

      then I would get a gear off of a 5.0 with the roller cam not the brass gear although the brass gear will work.

      Im about ready to pull the motor out ive been going kinda easy because my buddy has a 4.0 with over 320,000 miles on it so im just trying not to destroy everything and give him some spare parts. Its a shame this engine is not that old and its a reman. Just a botched job so im going to give him the heads if he wants them. Heres some pictures im getting close to the fun part wgich is putting the 302 in...
