302 to 250 swap/ plus tranny.

Post #1 by Invectivus » Sun Jul 16, 2017 12:19 am

So, my bronco has a v8 with a smoking problem. Probably, maybe. Anyway, I was considering building up one of my 250s and transplanting it in. Recognizing the different sump pan needed, I have three main questions:
1. Will a 250 tow a camper trailer better than a 302, or vice versa, recognizing you can cam both for hauling.
2. I hear there are different core/radiator supports between straight and bent engines. What's up with that and is it a concern?
3. I want a great auto, it's a c4 now. What are the good auto tranny's for towing?

I plan on efi either way, for mountainous driving comfort.
