Product Description

Perfect for a Budget Build!
This economy Mustang 5.0L 302 short block is just the ticket for that budget build or swap! These blocks are great candidates for naturally aspirated light street/strip applications or for restoring OE style performance.

Build Process
Our re-manufactured Mustang 5.0L short blocks start as good Ford cores that are disassembled, then placed in state-of-the-art, environmentally safe burners, followed by steel shot blasting to clean. The blocks are magnafluxed, inspected for cracks, bored .040-.060 over and precision honed to manufacturer's specifications. They are then fitted with new, cast aluminum pistons and cast rings*. 50-oz. cranks are precision ground to recommended specifications, and micro-polished. These Mustang 302 short blocks include double roller timing chain, but do not include a cam shaft. They will, however, accept any roller cam. Fox Body owners can check out our Mustang top end engine kits to help complete your build!

Block Info
These blocks are original Ford,302 engine blocks that would come out of old Mustangs, F-150's, Crown Victoria's and etc.. They are re-manufactured here in Texas. These are not foreign made. The cylinder bores are machined the minimum amount possible "between .030-.060" to bring them in to spec. All bores are be the same size. If a cylinder cannot be bored back to true, then a sleeve will be installed so that the block can still be serviceable.

Piston Info
Piston-to-valve clearance is a common concern when it comes to these blocks in our sales department. This clearance can vary with many different applications, so it is best to have a machine shop check this for you if you are not familiar with the process. The pistons have 4-valve relief cuts in them, as factory-style pistons would have and should run between 9.0–9.5:1 compression when used with stock heads.

Warranty Info
This re-manufactured Ford 302 short block includes a 90-day, 4,000-mile limited warranty**.

Notes
You must reuse the original threaded oil filter bung.

*Cast aluminum pistons and cast iron rings are recommended for naturally aspirated combinations only. They are not recommended for superchargers, turbos, or nitrous. Always check piston-to-valve clearance when installing aftermarket performance heads or cams.

**Some conditions apply. This is a replacement warranty only. Labor and shipping costs are not included in warranty. Installing incorrect parts, overheating, abuse, or lack of regular maintenance may void warranty.


Disclaimer:
We recommend breaking this crate engine in properly. Late Model Restoration will not be held accountable for any damages that may occur due to improper break-in methods. Normal break in conditions consist of 500 miles at normal operating conditions.

4 Stars   4 years and still going strong

Image uploaded by Jeff Brady I blew-up my stock motor after a H/C/I swap. Being on a budget, I got the Economy Short Block from Late Model Restoration. I put the old GT40P heads and Cobra (replica) intake on, and went with a new E303 cam. It's been running great for 4 years and about 10K miles. 265HP/290TQ at the rear wheels through an AOD. Best bang for the buck out there.

This Short Block was in get shape and the machine work is top notch. I would recommend this block for anyone looking to replace there 302 on a budget build. My custom cam and trick flow heads bolted up great with no issues. The shipping was fast and accurate. I was able to have it delivered to a different location where the car is being built.

5 Stars   Great Engine
By on 11/3/2014
Image uploaded by Victor Oliver Bought the short block in late 2012. Added AFR165 heads, 1.6 roller rockers, a nice Comp Cams stick and a Holley Systemax intake. Got it all tuned and it made 306rwhp. Great little motor and still going strong today. I put it in my 1995 Mustang GT that's mostly used for high performance driving events so it takes a beating.

1987 Fox mustang a project car so I have not installed the motor. Saying that the shipping was very fast and the motor look's great. In the process of painting the motor and assembling it. If it's anything like the other products I purchased from Latemodel Restoration, I have no doubt that it will be a great purchase.
