Engine overboard kits

Hello all. I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction to buy a HO 5.0 302 engine rebuild (overhaul) kit. Looking for a complete kit and wanting the best bang for my buck. Only thing I'm upgrading is the cam. Will have heads worked over at local head shop. Any help wld be appreciated

No. I want complete overhaul kit. All gaskets and pistons, rings, everything to completely rebuild one.

No I havent. I have engine experience. It's got 140,000 miles but wld live to freshen it up with a complete overhaul. Found something similar to what I'm looking for at Summit Racing and Jegs. Pistons, rings, oil pump, all gaskets etc for roughly $400

Ok well u want the same style piston so u don't change the compression ratio. Are you getting the Block refinished by a shop? There's a lot more than just taking it apart and putting new stuff on.

I know the block needs honed too. What else needs to be done?

Well it might need more than a hone so buying pistons prior to the shop checking out might not be a good idea unless you already plan on an overbore of .030.

Also there is the choice of pistons from simple and cheap to forged and expensive.

Yea .030 is good that's what I have. The first things that come to mine are since the motor is apart is main bearings, oil pump, new rod studs, timing chain, water pump, gasket set, rear seal, possible new cam, piston and rings and I'm sure there are some more small parts that are good to replace.

You see there is not one comprehensive kit that has all of that.


You will have to piece together some of these parts.


Add a hardened oil pump shaft, arp rod bolts and whatever is needed which is hard to say without going in there first.

Like I said....you never know till you pop the top.


She might run good, not smoke, burn oil but that cylinder could be deformed in all types of ways. All it takes is one cylinder.
