Ford Windsor family motors have 6 valve cover bolts (per side). Cleveland family units have 8 per side.

Threadjack alert: Were those early style "log" manifolds really prone to flooding under reversing?

Never any issues with mine in the 29 years I had her.

Correct. Escort was absorbed by PCM sometime around '77.

Its a Windsor. I have seen a vintage advertisement for a marinized Cleveland, but have never come across one in anything. Had I not seen that advertisement, I would have doubted that any Clevelands were ever marinized. Very, very rare.

And no, theres nothing wrong with log manifolds. They were the standard prior to ~72. I have many older boats with them, no issue.

Is there a chance it could be a "base" 302? I remember seeing them listed on some sheets here, but nobody seems to have one.

You would find the post that contained the photo you want to link to and then look at the right hand side of that post. You will see a post number. Click on that post number and it will open a window with a single post in it. Copy and past that URL into the new post in the new thread.

Something like this.

http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...5&postcount=11


This is different then what Mike did. He probably downloaded the photo and then attached it to a new post.
