i recently bought my son a 78 f150 with 351 m to have as his first vehicle. we are going to fix it together over the next year for when he gets his license. I recently found out the motor is locked up so I will need to replace. I would like to go to a 302 but not sure what all I will have to do to make it work. I want something period so i do not have to change wiring barnes and such. could some one point me into right direction so i can determine if this is doable or not. I am a back yard mechanic at best but have very qualified people to help. they suggested I try your site to help me with all the particulars I will nee to be aware of. My son really loves this truck so i want to make this work.
thanks for any help,
