I'm back again, and this time I have a much simpler question; and yes, I searched other threads about conversions, but none are coming at it from the angle I am.
Here is my situation. The 302 I'm currently running (carbed) has a cracked block now, and I was fortunate enough to work with several people who run mechanic shops as their part time jobs, and one of them offered to give me a EFI 302 out of a customer's 1993 bronco that had a warped head. The customer wanted a new motor. So, I want to convert that EFI to Carb since I have the complete carb setup and wiring, and every one of the parts is brand new. Id rather not have to start over and purchase all new sensors and a computer and mess with having to rewire my entire system again, especially since I paid for the Centech wiring harness.
What differences should I be aware of? My current setup is V-belt, and the new 302 is serpentine. I saw that the water pump in those years is a reverse pump (according to serpentine diagram), so would buying a reverse pump with the outlet on the passenger side fix that, or could I just use my timing chain cover and throw on the old water pump. I would like to keep the V-belt set up since I have all new chrome pulleys. Also, should my HEI distributor drop in, or would I need to purchase another? I'm assuming my 4 bolt balancer should be good on this motor as well, since it is a 4 bolt. Also, would I need to block anything off if I'm using my mechanical fuel pump?
If I could just drop all the accessories off of the EFI motor, and transfer everything over, that'd be convenient, but I don't want to risk blowing anything up!
I really appreciate the input, and you guys have been a tremendous help to me! One day I will be able to pay it forward.
