Re: Tips for replacing rear main in 302???
My reman is from PartsAmerica, it came with a one year warrantee. They closed the store about three months after I bought my engine. I haven't had any serious problems in four years. The piston wrist pins make a little noise at start up, but it's tolerable. I'd like to NOT have the noise, but until I get the urge to rebuild the pins, I'll live with it. Maybe if my engine explodes I'll put in a 351W.
If you are going 5.0, do yourself a favor and get you a complete car. Steal all you can. I'm still shopping for a donor. I went "old skool" v-belts and I wanna swap to serpentine. Oh... and the EFI... I gotta have that. Just haven't stumbled onto the right deal yet.
