just bought a motor to start my v8 swap. looking for any pictures or recommendations of what I may need to do prior to starting. I want to get everything together and ready before I start.
this is an 84 and going with a 1970 302 from a mustang. Starting the motor rebuild next week
any info helps. I've read the pages and got a good Idea but a lot of the phots are gone and sometimes those photos speak volumes.
Already ordered the mounts, headers, oil filter relo kit from Duff.

What oil pan is everyone using? I think this is my big question right now. Radiator and fan combo?
