Mike, those 302s were the "hot ticket" in certain dirt track stock cars in the 70s.  They saw a lot of abuse.  Usually came from cars that were wrecked.

Parts were parts. If they worked, they were used.  Running on dirt is REALLY hard on engines.

Yep, 5/16-18X3/4 1/2AF .66 O.D. AMK B-12589 (6) and for sure a phosphate screw. The supplier was a GM supplier and the screw is technically correct size and finish wise IMO Lloyd.

Just ordered some will post results.
40" wide x Linear  foot @ $13.75 per FT.

I have a torn Orig I bonded (Glued-Goofy) repair back in 86. The replacements seem to smooth and lack the texture and cotton strands.

James I sincerely appreciate you sharing the source.

Jim

I got time to check the crank today, is has been turned .010-.010  w/Clevite  Bearings that look great, I'm just curious as to how this Crank is in the engine and why, I see no reason for someone to just change a Crankshaft  unless they spun a bearing long ago and really damaged it, but doesn't seem normal to install  something different than what it was built with, if it was built with an 1178 Crank, one would think  the same part would be used.
  I can understand going thru an engine to freshen it with new rings, bearings, turn the crank etc.,  so I am thinking they freshened up what they had and assembled it., who knows,  I have seen a lot of mismatched parts from cars built back then, I know if a certain part was not immediately available the assembly line did not stop to wait on it, they used  what was immediately available.

That is what we used in our 68 but had it brazed around the two stems for strength and tested at our local radiator shop. I test them all before they go in! Smiley

Jerry said it is possible, but when asked at that time we did not know the engine assembly date. I asked him again.

I don't really know.  I would say quite possible in a September assembly, but more doubtful by early October. 

Pistons are standard?  Bearings look original?

If I recall correctly, if an original assembly, the bearings should also be GM bearings, and would have GM part numbers on the backs...   If someone were replacing the crankshaft (for whatever reason), they would not likely use GM bearings...
