Default 1995 F150 302 5.0 Engine Build - Its My Turn!

Well after many sleepless nights I have decided to do this build myself. Had a few mechanics that were going to do it but they were busy. "Call me next week". Had one company an hour away say 2500.00. Had a few local guys willing to do it for 1000.00 and had one guy around the corner from me who was gonna do it for 800.00 in his home garage.

All had an excuse why they couldnt start on it right away so I moved on. Well Im going to try my luck in this game of engine rebuilding! I hope all of you will be able to help me as needed because I am sure I WILL need it!

So here is a list of what has not been put on yet and is just collecting dust in my garage AKA "the SummitRacing Store"...(really my garage at home!):

Hypertech 1018 - 180* thermostat
Edelbrock 3841 - Performer 5.0 EFI Truck Intake Manifold and Plenum
ARP 454-2001 - ARP Stainless Steel Intake Manifold Bolt Kit
Edelbrock 7220 - Edelbrock Intake Manifold Gaskets
Aeromotive 13102 - Aeromotive Ford Fuel Pressure Regulator
Ford Racing M-12270-A302 - Distributor Hold-Down Clamp
Ford Racing M-6051-A302 - Cylinder Head Gaskets
MSD Ignition 8482 - Distributor Cap and Rotor Kit
Edelbrock 7811 - Performer-Link True Roller Timing Chain Set
Mr. Gasket 780G - Timing Chain Cover Seal
Mr. Gasket 792G - Timing Chain Cover Gasket
ARP 154-3601 - High Performance Series Cylinder Head Bolt Kit
ARP 400-7504 - ARP Valve Cover Bolt Kit
Edelbrock 8045 - Victor Series Mechanical Water Pump
Fel-Pro Q35211 - Fel-Pro Water Pump Gasket
Ford Racing M-6529-A302 - Rocker Arm Pedestal Shim Kit
Tuff Stuff Performance 7768AP - Tuff Stuff Replacement Alternator
GT 40 Cylinder Heads F3ZE Casting Number (Going out for port and polish soon)
Ford Racing M-6564-D351 - Ford Racing Roller Rocker Arms

That about it for the engine.
Due to the added cost of a mechanic installing a cam I decided not to buy a cam but now that I am doing this install myself... I will be buying the Ford Racing e303 and lifters in this kit: Summit Racing 08-0029 - Summit Racing® Camshaft and Lifter Kit Value Packs and new Push Rods. If there is anything I am missing PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know! I will be ordering some more parts these next two weeks and I plan to start this build the Monday after Thanksgiving.

As far as tools I have just about all Craftsman, klein and Channel Lock. Pretty much all the good stuff! Ive got 3/8 and 1/2 torque wrenches and regular rachets with deep and short sockets. Standard and Metric, open end wrenches, all kinds of long needle nose pliers with odd shapes and some more tools to get the job done. Here is the thing, I dont have any tools specific to a part, like I was told a cam shaft puller... are there anymore tools that I will need? Thread locking fluid? Anythin you guys can think of please let me know. Tools and/or more parts. Will I need a timing light? I have no clue!

I will take pics along the way.

My next project after this will be a solid axle swap. After talking with a few members on here we have come to the conclusion that a DANA 44 would be the best solution for my truck.

jmho i wouldn't use thread lock. just torque to specs.
i didn't have to have a camshaft puller.
you will need a harmonic balance puller.
and i had to use a 1/2 drive impact to break the bolt lose in the balancer.
you will need oil. and antifreeze. new filter. my oil didn't have but like 1500 miles on it. i made sure nothing fell into the oil pan, so i ran it 30 mins with the old oil then changed it out. don't forget you will need a torques wrench i think it was a 30 to remove the one bolt in the center of the plenum.

Hot rod F150 4x4 hauling chickens. youtube vid after the cam. iv added a couple with everything cleaned up. cam vid visit my website.

Well, FMS lifters came in today witth the Comp Cams lube, just waiting on the FMS E303 camshaft to get here. It is on backorder till the 22nd I believe. I cancelled the gasket pack that was included before they shipped my stuff. I have better gaskets for most of my parts.

aswaff400 I can feel your lose/pain

best option for a 302 is a 331
had one in my '77 for a while and they are very comfortable with a SuperCharger
then I went and did a 351 to 392 now it really screams

heres the 331

and heres the 392 before install

I added a 250 Edelbrock N2O cause I'm a big fan of the stainless flex hoses over the hard pipe now the Truck Double Screams

Klein tools and channel locks do not belong under a hood... save them for bicycles, and fence posts..

Best cam shaft puller I've ever found is a piece of all thread about 6 inches long that will thread into the camshaft so you can get ahold if it and not beat your bearings to death pulling t out, or putting it back in...

Yep... A Dana 44 out of a 78/79 Bronco will be the right width, and be a high pinion to boot....
