asm69, IMHO, the floating rods and the piston ARE one of the distinct sounds of the 302. The solid lifter is the other half of the distinct 302 sound. Changing parts could result in the loss of this legendary sound. The 302 and other engines like the 435 h.p Corvette, you don't even have to see them at a show to know what it is, then when it come in sight, yup, I thought so. The pressed pin Would make a lot of difference.
